    those specs are pretty good imo BUT i searched a bit and noticed that some people think that it messes up your "from front to back" air -route ..some sources say , in the other hand , that it cools whole mobo pretty efficiently..maybe im about to buy one and try to invent something different with this beast:wtf:

    Price is about 14 euros in finnish netstore.

    decided to put this in mod section since this is very modding related thingy.

    I don't even think enthusiasts would touch these they do not out perform a 120mm fan, from a marketing stand point these fans which are in the Thermaltake Armor and Antec 900 make it attractive these fans would make a good replacement but thats about it.

    I have an 80x80mm case fan from Akasa. A bit old (over 5 years old). But it is still holding. It has a built in thermal sensor, this is a fan that has never let me down as yet. It's from an old PSU I had on my K6 system way back then.

    However, I don't know if it's ball bearing but I would guess it is. Some of the other fans are as old, but I have to put grease on the bearings (sleave bearing) to keep the noise down a bit.

    I also have a "glow in the dark" PATA rounded cable from AKASA.

    But I don't know so much about their new products. Buy and try is all I can say.

    yeah its not expensive and i have a case ready for that to slap on :)

    all in all i think Akasa makes pretty reliable products as i have tested..but 22 cm fan is a epenis enlarger cant deny that

    I've got a 25cm fan, and I can attest that having it in a side panel does disrupt the front to back airflow, but with it installed, I had my front fan reversed so that all the intake came in through my 110cfm side fan.

    My temps were ~2 or 3 C lower than without it, probably because I had shotty cooling back then.
    Saakki says thanks.

    It's too bad you can't find my case anymore, it was $30 when I got it. Nowadays when you see a case with a 25cm fan, it's >$90.
