Default Lamptron & G-vans fan controllers

Hey,

I am sorry if this is in the wrong place or if it violates any rules I apologize but it seems significant enough to share.

Based on a statement from a Lamptron Forum rep, another company is using some parts from a Lamptron part supplier along with substandard components and then reselling them. The issue is that some well known modding / watercooling retailers have been confirmed to be selling these knock-off's as branded Lamptron devices.

Do we have any Lamptron reps on HWC that could confirm?

Here is the link to the thread I am referring to, I apologize again if this is breaking the rules.

Lamptron & G-Vans Controller statement

Here is Spawne's comment quoted from the site linked above

Quote:
...I have been notified officially that the following stores...

FrozenCPU.com | 1.877.243.8266 | World's Largest Selection of PC Modification Supplies
Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come
HeatsinkFactory.com - CPU Coolers, Case Fans, Quiet Cooling, and Water Cooling

are selling knock off controllers under the brand name "G-VANS" using Lamptron product descriptions and images. These are low quality and unsafe reproduction units of our own products and we at Lamptron are not associated or endorse any of the products associated under this brand name. As a personal recommendation until I have more detailed information regarding actual identifying details here, I would avoid purchasing Lamptron products from any of the following stores listed above until we can successfully verify whether the store is selling you a knock off unit..
