Nicely taken picture.

This is how much light it gives off in a completely dark environment

I personally like the Gelid fans, to bad they do not have a bigger product lineup.

You can use a PWM fan with a 3-pin fan header without any adapters. The fourth pin is just left hanging off the edge, and the fan will be locked at full RPM.

Agreed, however with the Passthrough I used the houseing on the 3pin with RPM Line will not allow it to be connected, nor will it connect on most Fan Controllers that don't have a PWM adaptor.
That was the point I was trying to stress in regards to that.

Thank you, as these units come out of my own pocket expenses I will have to wait until I can afford to purchase another set of Fans to Test.

Best Regards,

Ah, I see what you mean. Would you mind specifying that in the review? As you can see, I found it a bit unclear.

Edited and done. I miss the small things sometimes but now it should make more sense hopefully.

Never did like Gelid fans.

Always thought they were overrated.

The only thing really overrated on them is the cost of ownership. Otherwise they are a real solid and quiet performer.
