After watching the video I had a play around with the fan again, I think the ring gives it a silver stone air penetrator effect and the air it gives out is cold. I noticed in the video there's didn't tick which means my one i got off ebay could be a bit dodge
Its a good idea to have a fan controller for this fan, I am using a lamprton FC-2, its cheap, 6 channels and 40W per channel.
I have this odd urge to get the 5400rpm model.
Thats very quiet indeed!
I didn't know the ring did anything else then reinforce the fanblades, nice! Perhaps.. But it could be that the once in the vid are dodgy as well? Possitive state of mind..
I've got a Scythe kaze master pro atm, but I think these new typhoons will cause instant combustion when I hook'em up. Might get the Lamprton instead.
The 5400 goes over my comfy border, and I'll probably never run them at full speed unless I want to vacuum my room..
