i just wonder if they are going to be the exact same quality handlebarssmiley.png

do you think at 1850rpm they both will perform the same?
(just makes no sense to me why they would be cheaper! makes me think the ap-15 are built with something higher quality in which they figured out how to cheap out on the ap45 )

don't see how curiosity means nervous

nervous would mean im nervous and not sure which to buy, meaning i must buy them, which i dont tongue.gif

however, i am curious to see if anyone else shares the info about these two.

i posted price diff a few posts back, it's about $4. which doesnt make sense. why would you save $4 on something better than the last model

I sent Martin some cougars and a new silverstone AP 125 for testing. He should have them tested some time soon.

Ehh could be, could also not be

how would a higher performing fan cost less than the lower performing one?

situations like this honestly make me wonder what the manufacturer did, or what corners they cut.

just doesn't make sense frown.gif maybe im paranoid? or my background in sales makes me question these suit and ties biggrin.gif

It's not a higher performing fan....it's a faster spinning fan. And it doesn't take much in design changes between an AP-14, AP-15 and an AP-45.

Plus...the manufacturer is not setting the price. The reseller is. And they can set it at whatever they want, based on their perceived demand and competition. The idea that a lower priced fan had to have "corners cut" is kind of silly. Just consider the different prices and price comparisons among some popular resellers of the Gentle Typhoons:

FrozenCPU - The AP-15 costs MORE than the AP-14

PerformancePCS - The AP-15 cost LESS than the AP-14

Sidewinder Computers: The AP-15 cost THE SAME as the AP-14

The idea that the manufacturer cut corners if a fan is lower priced quickly falls apart when you see that different resellers chose different price points for the fans. The AP-13, AP-14, AP-15 and AP-45 are all basically the same fans, that have been adjusted to spin at different speeds. If you are using a fan controller...there really isn't a strong case for buying one of the slower spinning fans.
