Cant find it in my country frown.gif
Thank you!

Thanks.

Rev A has bare copper pipes and the TY-140 PWM fan with a rpm range of 900-1300:

Rev B has plated pipes with the TY-147A PWM fan with a more extended (quieter) range of 300-1300rpm:

Can you order from a nearby country? Slipping the 162mm high Macho in the Hummer will be tight.

A decent alternate could be the Macho Direct (158mm height):

It comes with the tres sexy TY-147B fan with the same 300-1300rpm range as the TY-147A. The Direct is the lowest cost Macho and fares well in performance compared to the H5.

The specs on the site are wrong.

Just to be clear, am I correct in assuming this about changing an entire cooler due to a dislike for the fan curve? And that the tower itself is perfectly serviceable (the H5 is at the top of it's class)? And that this is somehow seen as a more efficient solution than simply changing the fan?

Pretty much that. Perhaps you've read the stories about a woman scorned - they're based on an enthusiast annoyed.

Yeah i was a little disapointed at first xd and maybe changing the full tower is a waste of money.
So im starting to consider the option of buying only a new/better/quieter fan. xd

Would seem to make a little more sense.
