Truthfully, after seeing them when we were looking back in February for 300 bucks, I thought it may be a misprint, so I immediately just added it to my cart and -- 'voila! Good to go!! It must be time to liquidate their inventory or sum'n...lol. I surely couldn't pass it up not at that price. They're not all that roomy inside though after getting used to my Aerocool strike super tower and now an elisium lol.

Came across this video on youtube while looking at some fans, I though the good ol' chaps at OCN might like this as well (perhaps linky in the OP?):

There are 6 videos of the Elysium, 3 different fan layouts and each with a normal and negative version.

EDIT:
Yes, I'm getting rid of those POS Phobya fans biggrin.gif
I'm thinking about getting Arctic F14 's . They're FDB bearing so they shouldn't have any problem with running horizontally. Pity I can't seem to find any reviews or data about their static pressure frown.gif
Either way, I've always been happy with Arctic fans and I can get them for €8.99 so ... (Quite a bit more than the € 4.99 the F12's go for, brilliant fans for the price BTW)

EDIT2:
Installed the Arctic F14's now. Very smooth sound profile. Undervolt well but definitely less airflow than the phobyas. Overall better noise / airflow ratio though. Quite happy with my purchase. Probably going to order 3 more in the near future for some push pull because I think they lack SP.

I broke my sabertooth board last week ,don't ask stupid on my part.This gave me a chance to clean out my loop and make some small changes inside case.I flipped the power supply over like Wermad suggested,but now that pws cover I made looks like crap,so for $1 yes just $1 I made another one that looks better and cover whole pws without hole in it for fan.I know its dusty but still I like how it looks.

Well I accidentally bent the pins in the cpu socket and don't think it will be covered,but oh well that's what I get for not leaving well enough alone.I intend on selling the board when it gets back from Asus,if I can sell it for cost of repair or more that's ok with me.Stupid Stupid me.

Did you try bending the pins back? I've tried it on a R3E and was successful in doing so. Though, it was a few minor bent ones.


What do you have planned for your next mb?

Hey guys, anyone here know a whisper quiet 140mm fan?

I am upgrading my front 120mm's to Scythe Gentle Typhoons until I receive my Radiator (in which case, they will go on that in the drive bays)
But, I still need a rear exhaust..

I'm hearing great things about the Corsair fans. There's a few versions of them including a "quiet" version.
