    the mouse itself is fine
    but the fan :banghead:
    why dont they use smarter idea, put the fan inside the mouse so it would much better in aesthetic

    Calling the Switch 810 a trash case makes me jiggle, are you really serious about your statement? It is one of the best cases recently released.

    I don't know much about their PSUs, there are only Corsair/Enermax and Seasonic in my book.

    Anyway, I don't think flaming what he represents makes a good choice, you should just point your finger at him not to NZXT.

    Judging by how well the fan on my Challenger Pro works (Not at all) this seems like a great idea..... :rolleyes:

    Apologies to ThermalTake, my own personal opinion is not that of NZXT's.

    So your saying you design or build things for NZXT? So why make things you yourself dont like?

    EDIT: looks like someone walked into your cubicle.

    Hi guys -

    Tuan here from NZXT. The entire company apologizes for what went down here. It was totally uncalled for, and not representative of us on any level -- community, or corporate. I actually called Ramsom Koay, the director of marketing for Thermaltake and had a talk with him. Thankfully, he and I are close!

    And this is the way it should be. It's a close knit community -- there's no reason to degenerate down to the level of flaming or bashing.

    NZXT would like to ask for your forgiveness! Honestly.
    Also, please forgive XNine -- he has a case of pinkeye.

    For the record, ThermalTake and NZXT have agreed to take a picture together and post to our Facebook to show that we're actually bed buddies -- lol.

    Thanks guys.

    / Tuan N.
    Director of Marketing, NZXT

    My direct email in case you guys have comments/questions: tuan dot nguyen at nzxt dot com.

    In a universe of potentially unlimited variation, to ask the question "why?" without a context is so ambiguous that it is impossible to formulate a valid response.

    So ... uh ... why what?

    sorry guys ,im not getting down with this idea , nice to see you guys here supporting your stuff though , imho a smaller fan in the grip would maybe have sounded better but just make a good wieghted mouse with plenty(plenty) of buttons - some leds done:)

    This is actually quite inspiring.......but what we really need is airconditioned underwear for those long sitting sessions

    Why put a little fan on a mouse. I feel like there are much, much better solutions, like air conditioning, a fan pointed at the player, and innumerable other options...That is the why...

    What about fresh mint boxers? You'll feel the breeze!!! :roll:

    Maybe a wire routing stand with a fan would be better than a mouse with the fan, seems unconfortable like this, I don't know and anyway I should try before saying anything that isn't a guess

    The fan housing would look better reversed. Who wants to look at a sticker with the fan's specs and branding mixed together? Not me. Cool idea though. Can't wait for a review.

    I think its probably best to stick to a deskfan personally.
    The mouse looks alright though

    They most likely already did, and may be that is why we don't see Aliens coming to earth very often. :laugh:

    we at razor realised your ass crack becomes sweaty after hours of gaming, with this nifty little device you can forget sweaty arse fever and enjoy a calafornian breeze that will lift you up mentally, giving you the edge on WoW....lol....

    seriously, this is a bad idea... constant cold air blown over your joints is known to cause stiffness among other medical probs...
