At the time of purchase the price was not as close as they are atm. Had i known the hale90 would only be another 30dollars any time soon i would have gone for it. At the time it seemed to be the best price/goodies ratio out there. And efficiency was never very high on my list plus the HALE82 is said to have very good voltage regulation wich is something i was looking for to keep a stable overclock. Believe me if i knew about the fan i would have gotten anything but this one. Its bad.
