    to me Ratings of products are like polls for politicians...They can be made to say anything they want. Also like reviews at Newegg..90% are just silly and make no sense.

    For example the 90CFM rating. Is that in actual use, in a vacuum, under ideal conditions, at what voltage? etc...I have no clue so I take things like that with a grain of salt.

    Personally I prefer to find out on my own and by word of mouth that I trust.

    What I do know it the fans move plenty of air, are very quiet and the blade design is the coolest one I have ever seen.

    The ratings are based on best conditions, sound proof room, from 3 feet away not infront of the air flow etc, and also at the ratings they state on the fan. The fans would also be mounted in heavily sound dampened equipment.

    Hehe, I just had to laugh at you guys talking about using flexible PCI-e extension cables to lay the cards flat and then deciding that won't work cause you need a crossfire connector. Ummmm, if they can make a flexible PCI-e connector they can sure as hell make a flexible crossfire bridge...

    I have a bunch of the flex Crossfire/Sli connectors.. But when the cards are stacked they are reversed (so one sucks air from underneath and one on top) and they look terrible all twisted.

    I have made my own but its a lot of work to make it look nice.

    Elfen Lied, ftw!

    Hmmmm, that just gave me an idea. You should do an Elfen Lied themed case next. :D

    Hi Mark,

    Sorry to hear you didn't get submitted in time.

    Did you talk to anyone live about it? Forward them this thread and see if they'll get it in there.

    I was just at Intel too, I could of talked to them maybe.


    Either way, it looks amazing.

    Thanks Bob, I spoke to some lady by phone (who was pretty vague) but kind of said I missed the deadline.

    While I am quite disappointed they didnt accept it at least they improved the rules and contest itself (something I have been whining about for a few years now so thanks Intel for at least paying attention)

    So I basically see it as a win for me in the long run.
