But I can't find that link anymore.
It's on that Official Group Buy thread. I just can't get myself to read all of it to find it.

If my memory serves me right, a skid would be about 1,000 fans or so.
I would get 1-2 skids of barebones fans. I am sure I could get them for less than 7-8$ if I bought 2,000.
Sells for 14, or 16$ if you want sleeved and pinned.
Fair price, would sell like hot cakes.

I just don't know if I would get tge AP-15's or the AP-45's.
I think the AP-45 is a better choice, but the AP-15 seems more popular.

Worst comes to worst, I'd sell ehm for 10$ each if for some reason, nobody was buying.
Wouldn't make much money at 10$, but at least wouldn't be loosing any either.

At 16$ each, I'd almost double my return, and it's still a fair reasonable price considering they can't be add anywhere right now.
And than their's Werman will to buy 90 of them for 40$ each....but lets not go there. biggrin.gif

I bet you 2,000 fans would sell in less than 6 months.

Last Saturday I added 2 AP15 to my cart at FCPU(they showed 4 available) and saved the cart till Sunday and they sold out before I was ready to pay so I snoozed and lost out.
Broke down and grabbed 2 NF-F12 to see if they are a suitable substitute.

Sadly, the Grand Flex just isn't as good as the GT. It may have all of the right manufacturers spec, but it just doesn't meet it like the GT does.

Surely doing a proper group buy with a trustworthy PIC would be a good idea? Should a way of actually contacting Nidec be found, a group buy through kickstarter would be a great idea. Simply put down the pledge amounts for 1, 2, 5, 10 or 20 fans, and once the pledge amount is met the fans can be purchased, all with the security of kickstarter.

If contact with Nidec cannot be made, maybe Sanyo Denki would be a good idea? After all, the SanAce 401s are the only things that can beat a GT at similar RPMs. These can be bought in at slightly higher prices, but from experience are very worth it.

Also, if you're good with changing fan connectors, I seriously recommend checking these guys out - they do loads of high quality industrial fans, and from personal experience I can say their ADDA, Delta and Sanyo fans are brilliant.

You are mistaken.
Nothing beats a GT when it comes to Noise/Pressure ratio, and that at any rpm. Nothing beats a GT, period.

An avid GT lover I see - I was simply basing my judgement on personal experience and this: http://www.overclockers.com/65-fans-tested-megahalems/

The GT1850 comes in at 26.5 db and 54.5C, whereas the San Ace 9S1212L401 gives 19.5db at 55.5C - one degree difference and 7 decibels.

I implore you to try a SanAce - some samples can give motor whine, but the majority of samples are of unmatched quality. When comparing, this would suggest according to the other results that the SanAce can beat a GT.

One other thing, and not to be rude, you can't just say "You are mistaken". This doesn't leave a very good impression, it's very dismissive. I have both fans, and I love them both, but I just prefer the SanAce. At similar RPMs it is slightly better sounding, and it gives me tiny improvements in temperature on a radiator. The GT is a brilliant fan, but for me the San is better.

The test you linked is comparing water temp across different fans.
Martin of MLL doesn't want to do any more rad testing because he finds it's too difficult to get a good stable constant accurate ambient temp for the duration of even one test, much less across from one test to an other.

Your test of fans is not likely very accurate, is all I'm saying.
If he had measured airflowof each fan through a rad instead, maybe.

And yeah, after I sent it, I realized I should have written "I disagree" rather than 'You are mistaken".
But I consider both statements to be accurate. biggrin.gif

More than likely it would be XSPC, or another company that doesn't have their own high end fan.

We don't know how well the Helix fans are selling compared to the Gentle Typhoons, for all we know the Swiftech helix fans could have been manufactured as a private label through another OEM. This would be a great opportunity for Swiftech to capitalize since the Gentle Typhoon's are a legendary staple to many of our builds, it just makes sense for Swiftech to invest in it or even private label the new Helix fans to the Gentle Typhoon specs, every one is a winner in this case. thumb.gif

If GT's are a direct competitor to their helix, nothing snufs out the competition better than buying it outright.
