Maybe these things are made to be run a certain way that reviewers are not doing, like with pump to fan speed ratios or something. I don't know, but I'm going to sit it out for now.
That's the weird thing: they aren't. If you read most reviews they work just fine by plugging in and adjusting your PWM control to whatever sound level you like, presto you are done. Only TTL and Linux have had any issues at all. Even Anand, a review many of us didn't like the way they tested, didn't have nearly as weird of results. Feel free to wait, I'm sure once it releases it'll have many positive reviews.
And holy crap, that's a lot of extra cost for $140 unit. Isn't NCIX shipping free if over $100 dollars, or does that only apply to the US store?
