And all this time the customers keep biting at your heals wanting the product. biggrin.gif

I've been waiting months for some PSUs thumb.gif

Especially when the product has been sort of available in PSUs and heatsinks for quite a long time now wink.gif
Who knows, by the time I decide what case fans to get (I still havent chosen) the SW3 140mm PWM's will be available and my mind would be made up for me biggrin.gif
(Sorry I'm a fan (heheh...) of be quiet products with a Dark Power Pro 10 650W, Silent wings 2 case fans, dark rock pro 3...

I'm tempted to replace the DPP10 for a DPP11 at the same wattage for that platinum lovelyness (a friend in germany has one and his voltage readings never stray for 5.000 and 12.000) but then I'd need to try and find somewhere that has the cablemod all black cable kit in stock too...

I just did! poke.gif
I always worked at the near completion end of things. The last few details in building houses, building custom engines and cares. There is no such thing as a project that completes in projected timeline. Funny thing is the earlier things go wrong in a project, the more and longer the whole thing takes. Not just because of how each throws timelines out of sync, but for some unknown reason if a project has early problems, it will inevitably be plagued with them. "If it can go wong, it will" applies.

I dunno how accurate that is doyll...
Some things have had issues crop up where the entire thing has to be started from scratch all over again...late on, too. That'd be the ultimate nightmare

Replacing the centre fan since I had it lying around anyway and looks like it's a new revision too smile.gif

Indeed, sometimes it better to admit failure and move on. Had a marriage like that once. biggrin.gif

Hope you have a good medic handy. biggrin.gif
I've never played with the fans on mine. Now I don't think I ever will biggrin.gif

Differences between the new and old 135mm fan: the rubber ring is now on the correct side

0.4A power draw?? Man that's a lot for such a slow spinning fan!

My NF-A14's are bigger (140) and have .18A at 2000rpm i believe...

Wondering why it draws so much current? redface.gif

Ps: I still love my DRP3, mind you biggrin.gif

How that for great customer support? Chris told you to let them know 6 days ago and you already have the fan. thumb.gif No faffing about with RMA forms, returning defective product and waiting at least 2 weeks for replacement. be quiet! just get up and move!

:thumb:For such a quiet! bunch the move very fast!

Yup and excellent timing since i just replaced by board because one ram slot had 2 pins joined by a solder blob - weird

anyways
it's running @ 800rpm when set to 12.5%.
Doh.
By contrast the noctuas I have are running at 250rpm (sorry BQ but the SW2's just werent able to suck air in when constricted by a filter and door even at full speed frown.gif) so err....yeah that's still odd...
New board, new fan...same result :/
