I wish we could convince Scythe to start ordering their GT's with PWM. With PWM you can still control rpm with Voltage.
When i spoke with the ditributer he conferenced me in with the representative form Nidec who i asked all my questions to directly, They said that pretty much PWM fans account for so small of a market they refuse to make them for retail purposes, also that there are some manufactured for japanese/Asian markets but sales are so bad on them its not cost effective to manufacture on a regular basis.
All of the plugs are being taken care of by the distributer, Molex is also located in CT wich along with the distributer is a town away, so all the fans are being sent there by the distributor upon arrival form Nidec.
The cost will vary based on the quantity of fans being ordered, as of right now its a rough estimate of an extra 5$ but that also includes the Tach sensor. Thats why the fans are about 20$.
Base price at about 100 fans is 14.88 plus 5$ for the sensor and fan plug brings it to about 20$, then the price drops as the quantity rises same will go for the adding of the sensor and fan plug.
Im still waiting on exact quotes cause they had to all be redone cause of the PWM issue, so hopefully ill hear something back in the next few daysEdited by Therionx - 1/24/11 at 9:11pm
