Exclamation Check this price difference! And a question too.

Seriously, TigerDirect are ****ed up in the head.

Tiger Direct: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicatio...674635&CatId=0
21.99

Vibe Computers: http://www.vibecomputers.com/index.c...f=n&vID=200808

Is it possible to connect this fan to my heatsink?

If your heatsink uses an 80mm fan, then yes.

If it doesn't, you can look for an adapter.

I think mine is 80mm. I just got a ruler and put it diagonally on the fan. It's about 8 CM.

OK. I've heard they are loud, and I want to hear it. Is there some site where I can hear and see how loud it is.

WOAH!! IS THIS HOW IT SOUNDS!!!!!! http://lib1.store.vip.sc5.yahoo.com/...tornadosnd.wav

NOTE: Recording was done with an average mic 2 inches from the fan, outside of the case. The sounds on this site are an idea of how the fan sounds compared to other fans.

Yeah. I was doing a Google search for something like that, but my browser crashed... guess it had something to do with me converting and burning some AVI files to DVD in the background...

TigerDirect can have bad prices, then again anyone can on some items and have great prices on others. All depends on how many they have, how in demand it is, ect.
