Who Would Want Gentle Typhoon 2150s?  

post #1 of 374
Thread Starter 

This group buy in on hold indefinitely until we can restore contact with the organizer.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

A Message From Chipp:

As a little more info to this thread, this group buy would be sponsored by Overclock.net. Whats that mean? We'll be funding the initial cost of the fans, and then facilitating sale at-cost to you folks. This allows us to avoid anyone needing to middleman money or pay in advance; all we need is a confirmed number of fans to order thanks to Therionx's great legwork. The sooner we've got that number, the sooner we can get the ball rolling on the order. Hopefully, this system will also get some more people involved who might have been hesitant to participate in a traditional group buy.
Though we are still happy to middleman this deal to protect everyone involved, it is now not likely due to the extreme size of the order that we'll be able to finance the initial costs (approaching, and possibly over, $10,000...) This means that payment will work much like a normal group buy, just with Overclock.net acting as the middleman on costs. A buyer would pay Overclock.net; then Overclock.net would place the order and handle distribution to all who bought in.

UPDATE:
We officially broke the 720 fan barrier so complete fans from here on in are about 16$ a piece after applicable fees and 9$ for a bare-bones fan.


To start off The fans can come 2 different ways.

Option 1 has a Tach sensor and a 3-Pin fan connector pre installed and The estimated price per fan is about 16$. There is also an an estimated wait time of 10-15 weeks.

Option 2 is a bare-bones fan, this fan come with 2 pre attached power wires (Positive and ground) but no 3 pin fan connector. The price for this fan is about 8-9$ and the wait time is about 3-5 weeks. I would like to see if i can get fan tails or connectors included with the purchase so you can terminate your own ends if needed, this would only add at most 1-2$ to the price. These fans DO NOT have a RPM sensor but can still be controlled by any fan controller.


I personally would like to shoot for 2 separate orders, One bare-bones and One Complete. This does not mean that this will happen though but its a feasible idea and would be beneficial to everyone.

The only requirement that would need to be met for 2 orders is there will have to be no less then 720 fans per order. This will guarantee bare minium pricing.

I want everyone to remember that all this is still in the beginning stages and right now this is to gauge ideas for a finalized order. There is bound to be changes so please do not think that this is all final.


UPDATE:

Turnaround Time:

I finally got word back from the distributor about some costs and turnaround. What was taking so long was Nidec is not actually producing these fans on a regular basis anymore, they are pretty much for order only and are not stocked anywhere because of this. The distributor was trying to get a definite production time to relay back to me wich took a little bit of time, but heres the information.

From date of initial order it wil be about a 10 week turnaround for production of the fan at Nidec, shipping from Nidec to the distributor, delivery from distributor to Molex for connectors and delivery back to the distributor for shipment to purchaser.

Another little tid-bit of information given to me was this is going to be the last year 2150s will be available, starting next year the 2150 will be discontinued and removed from production and will officially be replaced by the new 3000 rpm model just released. So it looks like this will be everyones only chance to get their hands on these before they cant be had at all.



I removed the quantity discount because we are already over the limit needed for the maximum discount.


Regarding Shipping:

Message From Chipp: Please note - all costs provided in this thread are rough estimates! We will never try to make a profit on initiatives like this, but, may need to add minimal markup to each item's cost so that we do not loose large amounts of money on shipping.


For those of you who may not know what the GT 2150 is, it is the model up from the Gentle Typhoon AP-15.

Here is the specs


Max Airflow:1.95 m³/min
69 cfm

Max Static Pressure:28 Pa
0.113 inH2O

Noise:29-30 dB

Speed:2150 rpm

Voltage:12 V

Operating Voltage:5 - 13.2 V

Current Rating:123 mA

Current Starting:530 mA

Operating Temperature:-10 ~ +60 ºC

Dimensions:120 x 25 mm

Weight:200 g




This deal has been made official and now in order to reach the next level I need everyone to post the exact amount of fans they want at current estimated price of 16$.

Raise hand...

If it has PWM then I'm in for 4. This is a really good step-up fan from an AP-15 while maintaining a good noise/performance ratio (not as loud as those high speed GTs that were just released a few days ago.. with no PWM).

Yup they have PWM. lol know they are like what only 1db louder then the AP-15s and have 40 more static pressure and 20% more CFM. these fans are awesome.

The new GTs are a little overkill for me in the sound department, except for the 3k one thats not to to loud

I updated your quantity in the main thread.

Just an update...

We have potentially just broke the 100 mark in a 3 hour time window, so shooting for 500 or more seems extremely promising.

Thank you to everyone who's helping spread the word, hopefully all our work will pay off in the end.

What do you anticipate the cutoff point to be before the first order? 100? Perhaps we could get the first order in and get the fans out to a few of us to review first. If all works out, I may be down for another fifteen .

I was wondering where I could get PWM GTs. Are you getting these straight from Nidec? I'll take 3 (6 if they are around $10).

To start off The fans will have PWM/Tach sensors and will also include a 4 pin fan connector. The estimated price is about 20$ a fan.

Depending on how many people are genuinely interested the price may actually go down to about 15-16$ a fan (rough estimate ATM) This is only if 500 or so fans can be accounted for. (I will update pricing info should anymore information become available.)

This is how the quantity discount works, the only thing is this is for bare-bones fans without the sensors or power connectors. To add the sensors and power ends adds about 5-6$ to the cost maybe less depending on final quantity.


1 - 49= $38.36

50 - 59 = $24.66

60 - 99 = $16.74

100 - 359 = $14.88

360 - 499 = $10.88

500 - 719 = $10.20

720 - 999 = $8.10

any amount over 1000Requires Custom QUOTE


As you can see the prices drop significantly the more that are ordered. If somehow we can hit the 1000 mark they will probably only be about 11-12$ a piece after sensors and cabling.




For those of you who may not know what the GT 2150 is, it is the model up from the Gentle Typhoon AP-15.

Here is the specs


Max Airflow:1.95 m³/min
69 cfm

Max Static Pressure:28 Pa
0.113 inH2O

Noise:29-30 dB

Speed:2150 rpm

Voltage:12 V

Operating Voltage:5 - 13.2 V

Current Rating:123 mA

Current Starting:530 mA

Operating Temperature:-10 ~ +60 ºC

Dimensions:120 x 25 mm

Weight:200 g



Please post how many fans you would be interested in and i will start a list with your Username and quantity of interest.

we need a middle man to buy all of the fans! then look how cheap they are!
if we manage to get 100+ the price for each fan halves!
then if the middle man put $1 extra onto it, it would mean he will make $100+ and everyone gets cheap Typhoons!
