Skip the fan controller and go with PWM fans. Wont be spending much more than buying a decent fan controller, and in the end I bet it will work better, quieter, and more precise.

Thanks for catching that. I have corrected it in my post.

I'm not getting the whining noise you got when you mounted this fan, but it is loud with "moving air" noise when turned up all the way.

However, even when turned down to half speed it still moves a lot of air. I disagree that it's no better than the other fans when you turn it down because in that configuration you still have the headroom to turn it up for the full awesome air flow, an option you don't have with the other fans.

Try redbeard@corsair.com. That's CorsairGeorge. Maybe if you get hold of him he can help you out.

If I was you, I would be phoning them. Not acknowledging a customer's email is unacceptable in my book. Maybe I expect too much, but I always answer every email I get at work, and I expect others to do the same. After two weeks with no answer I would be phoning and asking to speak with a manager (an employee manager, not a "case" manager). Corsair may have a very good reason for not shipping your case yet, but if they don't tell you what that reason is and acknowledge your queries it's just as bad as ignoring a warranty request.

Personally I'm a little "old school" in that I always give a company a month to make things right. I figure a month is more than enough time to get a solution happening. However, after a month I will purposefully start getting a little nasty. Many people these days expect much faster solutions, and maybe they're right. Personally I still use a month as my window of good response, anything longer than that is unacceptable.

Of course, being old school, I purchase my cases in town, and if I have a problem with them within 8 days I can just take it back and get it exchanged on the spot. I really like the store I deal with in my town (I am now unashamedly going to plug Memory Express for Canadian computer enthusiasts. If they are not in your town you can order from them at memoryexpress.com). If they are in your town, my experience has been service second to none.

I'm thinking about doing that lighting mod on the NXZT fan myself. My case theme is blue (my favorite colour) and I wouldn't mind adding blue LEDs to that fan. I am wondering how it would look with the white fan blades. Unfortunately, with two video cards, an overclocked CPU, 9 fans, 2 fan controllers, a 2m NZXT LED strip, a hard drive and an SSD, I'm starting to wonder about my PSU capacity. It must be getting close to maxing out under load now (750W).

I'll have to think this over. I don't want to end up with a spare AX750 PSU. It's not a cheap component.

Of course you are correct in your disagreement. At the time of the post I had just browsed the other 200mm fan links in your post and the CFM and RPM figures for those were still in my head. ie. Dropping the NZXT 166CFM fans RPMS down from 1300 to 700-800 like the other fans would drop the CFM figure down to their level as well and thus straight away I thought whats the point given the case configuration changes needed for the NZXT (all assuming someone only needed better 200mm cooling as opposed to uber 200mm cooling) Totally forgetting that I myself have agreed with the same type of arguement in terms of headroom in relation to keeping the Stock Corsair fans on the H100 but with AP15's in pull configuration (as opposed to all AP15's) to keep the H100 from kicking into high gear longer. Thus quieter for longer but with the 'headroom' to kick into high gear with the stock fans.

As for the NZXT and LEDS. I'll race ya!! I am thinking about taking the white LEDS off the stock 200mm fans. One set on the 200mm NZXT which should be easy enough with the holes and cable channels already there and the other set on the 120mm NZXT I have mounted underneath my bluray in the vacant 5.25" bays. I'll have to drill LED holes and route cables in that one though. My one worry like yourself is that with the white blades, they might be too 'in your face'. Ironically, we may end up having to spray paint the blades black to get the intensity of white we want

EDIT: and i still have original fan controller untouched in case i want to RMA it in the future. i just unscrewed old one and screwed new one in.
Thanks. That would be great to see some pics

Can someone add me to the club?



What do you guys think?
Still need to flush the system to get it clear, was a bad idea to have it colored in the old system, and a bit of cablemanagement. trying to get another gtx570 working so everything is a bit messy.

Man, I love how articulate people are on this site. Sometimes makes me feel a little under educated.

Great idea about the white LEDs. If they were blue I would try the same thing. (hmm, maybe I could paint them? Heh heh, I doubt I would get the effect I'm looking for).

I would have to pick up some super bright blue LEDs from a local electronics parts store. Lemme check a sec....gees, they have one in stock and they're selling them at $2.50 CDN x 8 = $20 just for blue LEDs. That's more than the fan cost me...lol...

I guess the rest of the parts could come off of the stock fans. I think I might just go ahead and order those LEDs tomorrow. I'll take my PC to work to do the mod since I still need to repair one channel on one of my fan controllers.
