The Scythe Slipstream

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185060

I bought two of these earlier this year [spring?] and I was amazed. I don't care much about noise (I take performance over noise) and I found that these are a very balanced fan. They have 110 cfm and are relatively quiet (COMPARATIVE TO WHAT I HAVE USED). They aren't flashy, but they do the job and do it well.

Good build quality, excellent price. [When I bought them, it was 13.99 for 1 fan or 8.99 for 2 fans.] They spin up very quickly, unlike my 230mm 932 fans [which causes my controller to beep briefly at startup].


It replaced my original Tuniq Tower 120 fan, which was failing. Dropped my temps by about 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit (load).




Note: The Tuniq fan (Sunbeam brand) is STILL going. The bearing is worn out and clicks at low speeds, but crank up the controller and it runs normally.

It was 15 years ago that I first met Mariah. She was beige, blocky, and full of possibilities. The flashy new girl in town that everybody wanted to be with. Brains, looks, and money. Mariah had it all. Yet, by some glorious twist of fate, we fell in love.
I promised her we'd see the entire World Wide Web together. Each night, I would cradle all 45 pounds of her on my lap as we chased hyperlink after hyperlink. From .com to .gov, we did it all. There wasn't a single firewall or a trojan out there that could keep us apart. No matter what I clicked, she was always up for more.
She was insatiable.
One night, after a particularly strenuous browsing session, she made a little yelp. "How cute", I said as I affectionately stroked her warm chassis. It wasn't uncommon for her to make little squeals of joy when we were spending time together, she did it all the time. I found it comforting to know I made her as happy as she made me. Several minutes later, she lets out another yelp. This one was much louder than the previous one and gave me quite a shock. "Mariah?" I whispered to her in a concerned tone. It was getting late, perhaps she just needed to rest for the night. After all, she was no longer the spry 200 Mhz gal she was in her youth. We both knew getting old would be a natural part of our relationship. Of course, that didn't mean we were going to let it happen easily . A springy new mouse, a shiny new screen, and a thorough dusting every 2 weeks. These are all the things Mariah wanted, and I was more than happy to oblige. Although, I always thought she was beautiful just the way she was.
Snapping out of my nostalgic haze, I quickly made the necessary clicks to ensure a speedy shutdown.
Menu.
System disk.
Eject.
Shut Do......
But it was too late.
Mariah's final cry of anguish rocked the entire house as she collapsed into a heap before my eyes. My one true love of seven years was gone forever.
After spending the next decade in a depressed slump, I decide to investigate her killer. The part that drove a wedge between me and the greatest connection I'd ever known. Through angry tears, I dissected my once lively bride, determined to find the cause of my lifelong sorrow. Two days later, I came face to face with the beast who had done this to me.
The fan.
Since that day, I vowed never to be a victim again. That my lifelong pursuit to regain my will to love would return in full force. All of these desires came to fruition, when I found the Noctua Nf-P12. Each time it's blade spun, I felt as if I was being kissed by my own Mariah. Sometimes, when it's late, I can even hear her whispering through the hushed breezes. It's silence gave me the chance to think about all that I had lost, but more importantly, all that I still had. My memories of her will live on forever and it's all thanks to Noctua.
It made my life worth living again.

I like my cooler master r4 fan smile.gif

http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-Computer-Cooling-R4-L2R-20AC-GP/dp/B0026ZPFCK


I like it because it moves a pretty good amount of air, is pretty quiet for the air it moves, it looks great, and best of all, it's really cheap thumb.gif

I like my Scythe GT AP-15s. They just look too clean! I replaced some CM r4s with them and they are so much quieter. Also bought them pre emptively for my Christmas Loop.

I know a lot of people going to jump in and question this. My favorite part lies with green LED is not as bright as other LED fan. It is perfect brightness.


Also I have a second copy here from a recent card purchase and I am going to give it to frickfrok99 for the entertaining story.

Thanks to everyone for sharing their favorite fan and tune back in next month for the next freebie.
