Doh, I have been missinformed. I would have bought one weeks ago. Grrr.
Oh well, I plan to repaint the front of the Sunbeam all black for a stealthy look. I may end up getting the Sythe anyways as it is very sleek looking.

Here is the splitter in stock for $1.27 NXSource.com - Buy 6 in. TX3 Fan Power Splitter Cable

You should paint the Sunbeam AND get the Scythe fan controller, thats what I am going to do. I got the Scythe one early because the Sunbeam one was not in stock at NCIX, but now it is..I like my Scythe.. So sleek and shiny..

Exactly what happened to me. I'd been waiting for the Sunbeams and jumped on it as soon as they got them in.

I'll end up getting the Sythe soon as I really like the look of it. To run both I'll have to make my card reader into an external but that's another fun mod project. Thanks for the info on that by the way.

No problem, thats what forum members do for each other, right?

You should look here: The CM 690 Case thread - Page 17 - XtremeSystems Forums

Most of those systems on that page have the Kaze Master in them, so look at them, it will make you want it even more.

Yeah, those look great! It was in a thread in the NCIX forums where I read that the LEDs were green on the 2nd line but obviously thats not true.

I have the Antec 1200 and want to replace all my fans with Noctuas and S-Flexes but the fan controllers that come with the case only work with the Tri-cools.

Here is a link to what I've done with it so far
NCIX FORUMS - My Antec 1200 Build

Right now I have all the fans running off a terminal block but that will change once the fan controller(s) arrive.

Someone on the NCIX forum stated that when they ordered simular cables that were out of stock they got them pretty quick. Hope it works out that way for you.

You need to buy another set of fan clips. Otherwise you need to get creative with zip ties. Just don't use rubber bands as they may dry out and snap.

You make one fan push and the other fan pull. Don't know how to really explain it. Basically you mount both fans the same way so one fan you'll see the "front" and the other fan you'll see the "back" (side with the plastic support frame)
