So, does Nidec hold both patents for the fan blade design & the servo? Or just the servo.

Nidec holds ALL the patents and rights to the GT series fans. I'll have to look for it again, but I know I posted their statement to the fact in one of my posts in the past.

either way, mixing fans hurts my ears, i'm paying the 20$ premium.
They aren't going to discontinue them though.



Once the Scythe branded stock runs completely dry, I hope that someone take a gamble on this. I thought before that Phobya might, but that would be direct competition to their red and blue NB rebranded fans.

"Servo" is part of Nidec's name ( http://www.nidec-servo.com/en/ ). Perhaps it's some sort of subsidiary / partnership with Nidec, or whatever, but it's not anything specific to do with a fan.

As Wisk pointed out (see it all as part of the discussion here in the later pages of the thread) Nidec owns the rights to the design, and they own the rights to the Gentle Typhoon brand name, and they have specifically said that they plan to keep on making the fans.

The initial email from Scythe's Hank Peng to FCPU, that FCPU posted on their Facebook page is what started all the hoopla. The message falsely said that "Scythe reserves the right to the name Gentle Typhoon. That means Nidec can’t sell the product to anybody with our label, our package, our brand and etc. attached to it.". Scythe has since admitted that what Hank Peng wrote was not correct and that "since we won't be continuing our collaboration with Nidec in the future, later GT fans to be produced will not have the Scythe name on it".

Sooo, we're all just waiting now to see when/where/how the new, non-Scythe Gentle Typhoons are going to start showing up at the usual places. There's definitely a bit of a shortage of them at the moment, so it's not the best time to buy them, but all signs seem to point to the likelihood that our Gentle Typhoons will be back before long just without Scythe's name attached to them.

You must have missed the part where I said it's interesting that PPC & FCPU both respond that they know nothing about Nidec carrying on the brand. That was the entire point of the re-hash.

I ended up getting 4 of the smooth angle 45s from Frozen CPU, and the others we the angles with EK logo... I don't like those at all.

Being as I am running 4 rads and one pump, I think I will stick with smooth flow lines for now, and once I figure out how, and where, to mount the second pump, I will drop the fittings in and clean up the rest of the lines.

If you haven't read the write up Martin did on Martin's Liquid Lab regarding fittings and flow rate you may find it very interesting. Good luck with the second pump!

I didn't miss it.

Scythe was just the distributor for Nidec Servo, so they handled all marketing and delivery of the fans to retailers. Since all retailers only dealt with Scythe to get their Gentle Typhoons, and thanks to FCPU's posting of their correspondence with Scythe, it's a known fact that Scythe was sending exaggerated/false doom & gloom messages to all their customers, it shouldn't be all that surprising that places like FCPU or PPCs fell for their line of bull-oney.

Nidec Servo doesn't usually market their products through a distributor. Instead they supply industry and electrical supply companies. etc, not at the retail level. It may just be that places like FCPU/PPCs etc now need to contact Nidec Servo directly to place bulk orders for them or go through some electrical supply company middle man in order to get them.

Thanks a lot. I will read it in depth tomorrow. When I tear everything down for maintenance, I will replace those fittings.
