Eh, I somewhat agree with the OP, as I have had two Scythe's die prematurely, and they were both sflex models. My cheap Yates are still going strong (and silent) after two years.

I love my Sctyhes and never had problem with them. Got three of them for almost a year.

I have a scythe fan that came with my Ninja. 3 years old still in great shape. One year old Antec tri-cools on the other hand....

Seeing all these comments, i'm beginning to think it's often Luck-of-the-draw.

*Shrug* I've got 16 different Scythe fans, and have yet to have trouble with any of them. To my mind, the Slipstreams and Ultra's are Scythe's attempt to cater to the budget crowd, while still charging a premium for the "Scythe" name. Not a good combination, I'd say.

This is a tad off topic but I think I should clarify.

NCIX.com - Buy Noctua NF-P12-1300 120MM Ultra Quiet Cooling Fan 1100-1300RPM 63-92M3/H 12.6-19.8DBA Molex - NF-P12-1300 In Canada.
The NF-P12 would be the Noctua fan to use. The NF-S12B fans are great as an open air solution but quickly lose power when faced with obstruction (Heatsinks/Grills). The NF-P12 however has a high static pressure rating allowing it to move more air in confined spaces.
