    Not really, i have such light case because i often move it from where it usually stands upt o my desk where i tweak it. I've had a steel case in between and it was a total pain to move half a meter distance because it weight a freakin ton in case alone.

    Electronically Erasable. Small magnets wont do anything to a modern computers parts, except for magnetic hard drives - and even then, these would be too weak to have an effect.


    the awesomeness of these gets reduced once you take into account that the wires to the fan wont come off with the fan - so if you do cable management or use zip ties, it doesnt give you that much extra freedom.

    That is a shame no ones thought of these yet. That is a pretty neat idea. Will have to look into these and see if they do ever make them in other colors. That blue might just kill it for some ppl.

    Does no one go on the fans and fan accessories section on e-shops?

    My 4 years old zalman fans came with similar pins, except that they didn't have magnets.
