Yes fresh load of FrozenQ is on the way. Do not forget that San Aces come with bare wires.

Why are San Aces better? Is it simply that they run at a higher RPM=more air? Is it the design of the blades/body? Please enlighten me.

In short words, SanAces has very good static pressure which is great for using on radiators and other tight enviroments (like blowing trough the rack server).

From the Sanyo Denki reference guide:

Sanyo Denki product success relies on:

High projected MTBF (reliability), low vibration, low power consumption, low leakage of flux and high performance.

San aces were first developed in Japan in 1965 and since then they were continued to develop new models with lower noise, lower profile and higher efficiency.

Dc fans expected to perform 40,000 hours at temperature of 60c. Long life family (aluminum frame) has 200,000 hours life.

DC Fans family starts with simple axial fans (we use) to splash proof fans, oil fans, long life fans, blowers, cpu coolers and liquid cooling solution systems (proprietary).

If you put radiator on top, no modification is required; you just loose top 5.25 bay.

In my case (second build) I removed HDD cage completely (you neeed to drill rivets out) and cut extra hole for the fan. It looks good, but draining system is somewhat complicated.

the case i have is thermal take armor + bws6000
the power supply is fixed in the top position
and i really don't like to put rad outside of the case, i think it looks very ugly
so my only option is to put it at the bottom

i ll post pictures later to show the interrior, but what tools u use to cut open the holes for the fan and ventilation?

the bottom of the case just happen to be 500 mm right on the pci expansion slot edge

i wonder if this length is enough to fit the feser 480 rad, and certainly more ventilation hole and fan holes ll need to be drilled
that is the tricky part =(

i wouldn't bother and just use good dual radiator. And may be single rad at the front, but only if you have heavy overclcock and couple GPU cards in the loop.
