Warning: RANT! (Click to show)
You are either very rich and expect all of the rest of us to be the same way and not care about money, well i have to break something to you when you are running a setup like many of the people here you need 15-20 fans and at 20 dollars a piece that is $400 in fans alone, where as with YL you only need to spend ~$50 for all of your fans. And your arguments are that the YL are worse than GT and i will agree with you but it is like pitting your grandmothers honda against a ferrari, the ferrari gets you from point a to b and so does the honda, however the ferrari will get there slightly quicker because it has better acceleration. the same thing with these fans, the YL at worst will function about 2-3C worse than the GT at the same RPM however the YL will spool up to a higher RPM and many of us game with headphones on so we can stand having a slightly louder computer if it will save us $350.
The thing that really ticks me off though is the fact that your just starting here on OCN and have no reputation whatsoever however the person you are calling an idiot has been here far longer and has a far better reputation.
There Rant Over
Fanboy's will do what they will.
I'm a reputable member on forums that existed long before this place was even a glimmer in the owners eyes. I came here because this is where people with 560ti 448's are congregating. Just like other forum. There are lots of people like you and Cheadder.
Neither you nor Cheadder have provided evidence of any sort. Nor do you OR he need '15-20 fans'.
I'll also correct your math.
15*7 = $105
20*7 = $140
15*16 = $240
20*16 = $320
Which as I said already, is around 2x the cost.
Oh, and if you actually ARE like the majority here and are running a 3x120mm rad or two 2x120mm rads, that's 6 or 8 fans. Not 15-20... lol. And you have an H100.
I'm sure you needed copious amounts of help setting THAT up.
Also, I love how people spend $100 on a reservoir that provides no cooling benefit, but looks cool. Then complain about not wanting to spend money on expensive fans. Spend $20 on an MCRes v2 that works well, and then you have $80 left for your fans, which actually improve your performance.Edited by zoson - 4/15/12 at 2:41pm
