You ARE comparing them (like every water cooling elitist in this thread).

The corsair fans can't be that great when people are talking about replacing them with fans that have a better noise and perfomance ratio.

I learned how to build PC's within the last ten months or so and I have my CPU and GPU's water cooled, so skill really isn't a factor. If you can build a PC then you can put together a water cooling system no problem. With these hydro kits reaching into custom water territory, it'd be silly not to atleast consider water when it offers plenty that sealed kits don't.

I repeat:
I got a great deal on it.
It looks and PERFORMS better than my D14 with the SAME FANS.

How in the crap am I being "unreasonable"?

Perhaps you should choose your words carefully. You'll end up starting a flame war with crap like that spewing out of you. Take your baseless crap elsewhere.
Calm down. You posted how great of a deal you got on it after I started my post -- hence the edit.

For your particular case it was fine -- but in general the cost of the cooler + 4 good fans for P/P makes very little sense against the D14 or water cooling.

That was kind of the point. It was meant to be a contradiction.

The fans ARE great. Albeit noisy, they are very solid, well build, and great performers. Plus, they are PWM. These are the things that make a great fans.

Actually, I posted that I got it for 90$ pages ago. Learn to read. If you shop around, anybody can get it for as good a deal as I got.

Np man. Almost anybody will suggest one of those two for a radiator. Yate Loons are decent as well, but with less static pressure.

Because everybody gets the same deals no matter where they live
I also don't remember you saying you owned the fans until few posts ago.

I'll cop to this... if you already have several nice fans and get the cooler on a deal then
