Agreed. $30 for one case fan, is just ridiculous. I'd rather strap those two Yate Loons, to my TR Ultra Extreme. More airflow that way.

would two 140mm 73 CFM be a better option than two 120mm 90 CFM?
would the 140mm hit more surface area of the heatsink?

That might work, and they'll be quieter than those 120mm. I have 3 x 140mm fans in my case, and they are very quiet.

1) Diamond
2) Silver
3) Copper
4) Aluminum

Gold isn't even an awesome conductor...copper is way better...it's just preferred in some situations because it resists corrosion.

Interesting, I never knew diamond was a good conductor of heat - its thermal conductivity is about 4 times greater than that of copper at room temperature.

Yeah...I was surprised when I found that out as well. I love engineering
