Oh yes, we need to be engineers to know that 4 x 40mm fans together perform less than a single 80mm fan at the same speed. Just because you lack any sort of criticism and logic of any kind doesn't mean we do.
Why do you think some cases come with 200mm fans, instead of using 4 x 100mm ones?
Tip: 40mm Nidec fans:
80mm Nidec fans:
A single 80mm fan is MUCH more efficient and silent that any combination of 4 x 40mm fans (that occupy the exact same area). So, I suggest you remain silent and don't post much in this thread, as you are totally clueless about the specs fan has, and that current logic moves towards using bigger fans ALL THE TIME. Such small fans are only used in stacked servers because the space needs are much more important than the efficiency or the noise.
In this specific case, we are talking about a TRIPLE
slot card (which negates the space factor of the facts), that will have a terrible cooling efficiency and will be louder than a vacuum cleaner.
But hey, If you like to believe what ever a PR department can give you...be my guest. This card is a flop, end of story.
