Default would like to know your views on this antec fan

Hi
What do you guys think of this antec smart col fan
http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...494963-9202036

am planning to use it with the antec sonata in conjunction my gigabyte 81875 ultra

you think two 120 mm fans will be sufficient for 5 hard drives,

i plan to go for the RAID configuration of 4 hard drives and a 5 storage hard drive in the long run

Not a bad fan. The price seems a litte high though. Shoot for 7-8 pounds. (I would type the symbol, but I have an American keyboard.)

lol...what an insult! Our keyboard have both the $ and £ signs!!! ...

I happen to have an Antec Smart Cool 92mm Case Fan. Bought it after my previous fan needed replacing. Started making strange scraping noises!

It is rather quiet...and does transfer a fair amount of air.

Looks like it will use a presicous molex, and not give you a replacement for free. I used up all my molex connections on my antec 330watt truepower, and I only have one harddrive and one dvd drive, and one of the other standard stuff. (I have 4 fans btw, 3 of which are powered by psu.)

Hello,

My Antec Case Fan came with a Molex to 3-pin fan socket converter.

Optionally, I can either hook the Fan's 3-pin plug directly onto the thermally managed fan socket on the motherboard, hook it directly to a molex connector without a temp sensor signal line to the fan socket, or hook it to a molex connector for power, and to the fan connector for just the thermal line.

Confusing!? Either way... the fan is built solid with a 3-pin fan connector. The molex connector & dedicated 3-pin temperature connector is seperate on an adaptor.

the 4 pin for the power and the 3 pin for the control?
