Default Daz... Why are these fans $200!!!

This is going into the water cooling section as they where found on Dazmodes site. Instead of seding Daz and email, I thought I would like to share this with everyone (I am not poking fun at Feser or Daz).

Dazmode, why are these fans $200 a piece?
Exclusive --- The TK-121 Prototype - smoky blades Triebwerk - Ultimate Cooling Fan [TK-121] - $199.99 : DazMode, Watercooling enthusiasts store
Exclusive --- The TK-121 Prototype - smoky blades Triebwerk - Ultimate Cooling Fan [TK-121] - $199.99 : DazMode, Watercooling enthusiasts store

If I do 12 in a push/ pull configuration, how will my temps look?

Again, I am not making fun of anyone, this just really interests me. Why? Well, a San Ace is $30 because of its performance. Since these $200 fans are more than six-times the price, do they push 600cfm?

That fan usually sells for about $30 US it seems; however, Daz's site clearly states that they are pre-production prototypes so someone might want them as a kind of collector's item.

I just want to keep them to myself!

This is collector items as those two smoky blade fans exist in only one copy each in the world. I was able to "steal" those when I visited TFC headquarters this summer as well as their DDC X-top which never saw production.

What if someone was to buy them, would you part with them? Can we see the DDC top???

Only low speed left at the moment (1200 rpm). The 1800rpm version will be back later in the month...
