@derfer

What retailer did you order from?

Thank-you.

From this thread you found that retailer info?
6.25hrs ago I let a bunch of people know in this thread that I successfully* ordered from Linke.
Great minds think alike!?

*well I hope successfully, they have a history of having outdated inventory counters.
I've ordered in the past, only to be refunded because they didn't really have the item in-stock.

I don't suppose you can add any more thoughts on any remaining questions/points in that post?
Nothing springs to mind. You are getting a fan that can be controlled with voltage. For this you will need a fan controller. There is no way around that. Now, one of the brand sellers (Sunbeam?) has announced a controller that will accept pwm signals from the mb and put out varying voltage for the fans. I suspect it will be pricey. There are also controllers that seem to be able to monitor temps and adjust fans, but I know very little about them. They all cost at least the price of two highspeed GT's though.

As an illustration of choices available now, I am stuck for the moment with an As.s mb that will allow only pwm control of fans. So I'm using only pwm fans on my heatsink. And when Nathan gets his 2150's in, I will order some of those. And when Gigabyte releases Rev 2 of the GA-P55A-UD3P/R, I will get one of those and go back to voltage-controlled fans.

High Amperage fans do present challenges in control. Too bad Scythe didn't decide that since the fan is already expensive, a pwm version would be worth reselling.

Not sure what you mean...
Depending on one's MB one can plug a PWM fan into their PWM header, & the +/- into their PSU, & adjust voltage/RPM that way.
A controller isn't imperative...
Of course depending on the quality of high-freq PWM implemented on my MB, I may not be able to lower these fans to their rated 1000RPM. (YTBD)
And there's a few other reasons why I'll probably want a discrete controller LT.

Yeah aware of it, ruled-it out in this thread of mine for various reasons.
Sounds like you're more inclined to go with option #1 than option #2:

For the 2x 5400RPM 120x25mm fans I'm considering*, the options -as I see them- are:

(1)
Buy 2x D1225C12BBAP-31 & pair them with a controller that has at-least 2x LVC channels.
Granted I'd be using linear voltage control instead of PWM, but I'd still retain all the functionality of option (2) right?
e.g. RPM/voltage feedback, and speed control, just not the same power efficiency...

(2)
Buy 2x D1225C12BBZP-00 & feed +/- wires of 2x directly to the PSU (not sure how best to manage that), & then connect their PWM/RPM wires to the 2x PWM fan-headers on my mobo.

I haven't done the math, but I suspect option (2) will be pricier than option (1), despite the latter not needing a discrete controller.
This is because Nidec 5400RPM 25mm PWM fans, have to be imported at much greater expense than their Scythe equivalents.
This makes option (1) attractive, as not only will it be cheaper or similar price, but I'd also own a multi-channel PWM/LVC controller.
Admittedly though I haven't done the maths, so I may be totally wrong...

*assuming that's the highest RPM 25mm fan from Nidec now?


I'm erring more on the side of option #2...
As I'm not sure #1 is the great value I originally assumed, + I want time to find a controller that meets most -if not all- of my demands.
Time to actually obtain ROUGH pricing for both paths, so I can make a more informed decision!

I will ultimately have no more than 2 of these high amp fans.
One only initially, then 2 others later if testing goes well (one to be donated).

I have a dedicated thread here (& two clones at other forums), I will continue my thoughts there.

Thanks for adding yours.
night.

Damn it. I've been looking for the AP-15 everywhere, but no matter where I look it's always OOS.

Yup, looks like it's disappeared from Linke now too.
Hope that doesn't mean my order made 27hrs ago was rejected.
Haven't received notice of a refund yet, will be pissed if they do that to me again.

Maybe they're clearing out all the old inventories and getting ready for the new high-speed GTs? idk

who cares none of the scythe high-speeds are PWM
