Hello, I am looking into selecting the right fan for me in a low-RPM 9x120mm loop in an external waterbox. the Gentle Typhoon has grabbed my attention, but it sucks that they are not available in red (my whole color scheme). grey completely throws it off, especially in a block of 9, not shrouded and tucked away. plus the box doesn't have an entire side, so its a little obvious. (http://www.dangerden.com/store/external-3-x-360-radiato...).
so assuming it is painted evenly to avoid throwing off balance, would the weight of the paint have any adverse effects?
I will probably test it on my own with a cheapo fan (as to not insult a Gentle Typhoon if it doesn't work out ).
any alternate fans out there (in red) comparable to GT's? Enermax Magma's are perfect color but don't quite hold up to my performance specs.
what actually happened when you disassembled the fan, treefrog? i know some fans are designed to have removable blades for cleaning and such, I am not sure if this is so with scythe's.
I could not reinstall the fan to the shaft on Scythe and Antec 120mms. None of my models were designed to be removed, and appeared to be mounted by the friction of the blades receiving slot with the fans' shafts. I was unable to re-place the fans to the shafts with sufficient pressure to hold. After ruining one scythe and two antec fans, I decided to mask the housings on their replacements. That worked.
