^ What Marin said. It would be a huge bonus to take the time to test different high-quality fans and compare the TRUE and Hammer with each fan, see if the 1-2-1-2 design on the Hammer does what it's suppose to.

Yes, it weight about ten pounds by the feel of it. I'm going to polish it up for photo's when I get ready to test.

More motherboard bending. Wooo...

Anyways, wonder how the TRUE and XTH compare with a 38mm fan such as a Panaflo.

(yes I'm coining the shortened named for the cooler. It is now XTH, remember that )

I rather like XTH as an abbreviation and might use it in a future article, but credit goes to Marin.

I need to get a good 38mm fan for testing. Suggestions one what people use most?

Well Ultra Kazes are the most popular even though they're pretty bad fans.

Good fans:

To get your hands on a San Ace you'll need to search around eBay. Also Newark.com sells their fans.

I Agree with Marin, Vapors fan review over on xtremesystems showed the San Ace 1011 as top dog,$25 a pop but you get what you pay for apparently. It would be great if you could get your hands on a couple of them and include the numbers in your future reviews.
