Sorry for delayed response. But PWM fans, I have had 3 before I switched to Akasa. Coolermaster blademaster, and two fans that came with coolers that were PWM, one thermalake, other cant remember. But all 3 died, I think mainly because I used them horizontally. These Akasa fans have a bearing that can take being mounted like that, were as the others were sleeve bearings and cant take it. I just bought 1 of each, Apache and Viper, fans the other day, because Performance PCs had them for cheap(scratch and dent section lol). Which puts me to 3 vipers, and 5 apaches.
I also modded an Gentle Typhoon high speed fan(5200 RPM IIRC) for PWM control since the sensor it built in already. All I had to do was solder a wire to it lol. But I dont use it, it is scary sounding when it revs up, all I can thing about is my niece sticking her finger in it...
EDIT: as Traches said, Aquaero 5 FTW. Adds another dimension to your build. But can cost two arms and a leg if you go crazy and buy everything lol.Edited by goodtobeking - 12/3/12 at 5:16pm
