if I remember correctly, supply issues were already cropping up by the time I ordered, which is easily 6+ years ago now. I ended up driving over to Perf-PC to pick up an entire box full . I have 40 of that box left, and all 40 have ran near 24/7 since, and all but one are as quiet as day one.
folks were even getting the wrong gentle typhoons in the right boxes @ one point. I have a few of these. The easy tell is one came with white tips, the others black. I just don't remember which is which now.
R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If I'm gonna spend that kind of coin on fans I think I'll stick to my reliable & superior Noctua NF-A12x25's but thanks anyways EK... after all the issues with their Vardar fans I'm wondering who is going to buy these?
Those new 120mm EK fans look a bit like a 'merge' of the GentleTyphoon (~28mm thick) and Sunon (~40mm+ thick) from early in the decade, the latter being fans we mostly used for servers. I still use all (10+) the GentleTyyhpoons, but the Sunons are just too plain loud...hopefully, EK's new offering has that noise sound problem licked
Also making me do the Jackie Chan what the F meme face. I thought the $150 I spent on 5x Noctua NF-A12x25s were expensive, but this fan doesn't make much sense. I still have 5x PWM 2150RPM GTs and 6-7x non-PWM 2150RPM GTs that are perpetual "backups" since they are too good to sell for cheap and wouldn't want to just toss away.
Too damn expensive. You can easily buy high RPM fans that thick costing less than a third of it. Industrial grade if I may add too
Agreed. I use to run 3 high amp 4000RPM fans on my radiator. They work brilliantly. Never saw temps on water that low. They move a lot of heat off the rad quickly. https://koolance.com/fan-120x38mm-184cfm (price is a bit higher than 10 years ago.)
......noise on the other hand.

Meh, probably nice but expensive. I'm running Delta AFB1212SHE 38mm thick fans on my radiators. They are PWM, can run as low as 200 RPM (silent) and you should be able to find them cheaper than that. MTBF is like 50k-80k hours too haha.
Oh and in case I want a tornado, they can go up to ~3700 RPM....
