Default SS Wilson...........

i had the red/black yate loons. i got 10 of them. cant remember if it was 2 of those 5 pack. whatever.

anyway all of them except for two would buzz like there's no tomorrow when they were mounted vertically. i tried them on the side of a case , inside on the back pushing air out and on the front pushing air in. and did the same on 4 different cases.

i even tried rotating them . nothing mattered. 8 of them buzzed. the buzzing was louder than the fan itself and was incredibly annoying.

since they were so cheap, they werent worth the return postage and as such i
"terminated" them. they were beyond "salvation"


those scythe slipstreams look rather nice. but i suppose you get what you pay for.

cheers to all and thx for the info
