They've arrived.

Much quieter than I expected, but they're still loud. Even for me.

Preliminary experience basically tells me these things BLOW. And I mean SERIOUSLY BLOW. To compare, take your average household desk fan, and set it on high. This blows more. I have to hold them down or they'll scuttle across the table. I had to find a heavy object (PSU) to actually hold back 4 of them zip tied.

I tried the "flying" test and it failed. If anyone's seen mythbusters and the jetpack episode, that's about how close these are to flying.

I'm gonna setup some video footage in the next week or so and post it comparing a bunch of fans.

I found pretty funny lol, especially when the fan started taking off.

But seriously, that fan is pretty loud.

I used to have a 90mm Delta I'd slap on my XP-90 back in the day when I felt like being silly, It was freaking LOUD.
