And that is exactly what its meant for....you don't go buying 38mm thick fans unless you are using EK XE, HWL GTR or Koolance high FPI rads, or else there is no point.

Which is odd, there must be a very select few people that fall into the niche within a niche, that will forgo the silence that people generally strive to attain when going with watercooling, and go for all out performance regardless of the noise generated (I once had a high FPI 480mm radiator with a 40mm thick fesser shroud, and then 38mm Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000rpm fans on it, in my first loop...it was overkill and unnecessary to say the least...).

at least if they were F4/FF models they would be quite good but for this much or adding 5-15 more you can get 3 high pressure fans

once they became popular they are just selling a brand it seems.. I mean there is no reason to spend 30 on one when there are far better for 1/3 the price

Hi,
Indeed dirt cheap non rgb corsair ML's are a far better price, better fan too, higher rpm as well 2k and 2 pack is the same price I believe.

Here's the rgb's

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.
About 3 or 4 years ago someone picked up the same Nidec Servo fans that were getting branded as the GT15's. I forget who it is off the top of my head, but you can get them on Performance PC's.

That said, my GT15's started dying off last year and I replaced them with Silent Wing high static pressure fans and they have been working fabulously. Just as good as GT15's if not better imo.



On topic: It's hard to make a case for expensive fans like this since the best application seems like it would be highly space constrained cases where you can't fit much rad space, and in that case the 38mm thickness would likely be problematic. On the other end of the spectrum if it's all about performance, slapping 4 180mm Silverstone AP fans on a 1080mm MORA-3 will give you all the performance you can muster on a single power outlet and do it cheaper than these expensive little boogers can.

if I remember correctly, they're still available in lots of 1,000 so that doesn't surprise me. I'd guess there's just no Scythe / Nedic shared branding or whatever.

also, if I remember correctly - they were less than $20 a piece when I got mine.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.

Watch this product start the next hype of 38mm fans again, RGB anyone?! I'll stick to the ole Panaflo 38mm I have running since 2009.

So.. whats the point?

The only thing this has over the venrable old Panaflo is PWM, and if you want PWM at the cost of all else, Delta's been providing that for years with proven reliability and a lower price point.
