Koolertek gets them via a distributor, not directly from Yate Loon. I know because I'm Director of Operations for Koolertek.

As far as I know, Petra's Tech Shop (Now run by Sidewinder) has the factory direct Yates still, but you'll pay a lot more (3.59 vs 5.99).

I believe Danger Den is also getting the "good" Yates, at least if their site's pic is accurate. $6.99 there.

6 bucks isn't bad, but personally I'd rather step up to something better and pay a little more if I was going into the 6 or 7 dollar plus range.

I actually run the distributor sourced versions in my own rig on my Thermalright cooler in push-pull...they've not had a problem in 4 months or so, and they're actually mounted horizontally, which is reeeeeally not ideal with sleeve bearing fans. Of course, I get them cheaper as a dealer, so I don't mind just tossing them if they start getting noisy. Warehouse full of fans, and I'm running the cheapest we have

Thanks ff02!

I guess I'll have to think about it first

When are you going to get those 2150rpm GTs?

Step back for a moment and look at this statement. This kind of honesty is rare in the business world. +rep

 

I wouuld say that you should get Yates as cheaply as possible, and buy extra. Lube them before you put them to work (see my sig for a how-to) and check on them twice a year. If some fail, use the extras to fill in.
