    Made a correction.

    The CX750M and CX850M were ALWAYS rated at 40C. Only the label changed, but the insides were always the same.

    Depends on the blade shape.

    It does LESS than the outer blades, but you can't say it does nothing or you negate the usefulness of any small sized fan.

    Yeah. I've already thought of that. You would put the motor on the other side of the PCB and run the spindle through the center, but then I would fear the spindle would have vibration since it...

    I would think so. We already see performance increases just from reducing the fan hub size from, say 35mm to 22mm.

    You know how some attic fans are belt driven? I was wondering if you could do that with a PC fan. Because there would be no need for a motor in the hub, you can drastically increase blade size.

    It actually costs more.

    It's a volume play. Only Corsair uses the Blue Jay frame. Everyone uses Hong Hua's frame. Therefore, Hong Hua's frame is cheaper.

    I do have to think though... I...

    The likelihood of that cap going bad is very slim. The likelihood of it going bad and damaging anything is equally slim. The controller would simply stop working.

    Yeah. MSRP price delta is $10, so I guess that's pretty close. But to some people, that little bit of savings is worth it.

    Because more stable is better?

    Honestly, it's a pretty cheap solution. A really expensive fan controller would have DC to DC in it (even though the output is still 12V).

    You want to know a secret?

    The Hong Hua fan in the RM and the Corsair Blue Jay fans like the one in the RMx are exactly the same other than the fan frame.

    You're welcome. ;)

    What's wrong with the RMx fan?

    If the RMx gets a refresh, it's going to be to meet new efficiency requirements (2% load) and new power up timings and the IEC 62368. Not so it can get a different...

    And UVP is not required.

    I put the red stop light on the fact that it's 230V only. That's a show stopper right there for me.

    Well... To be fair, Intel lets you implement OPP in lieu of OCP, so saying it's "ATX 2.31" doesn't mean anything.

    Still would be good to know what supervisor IC is used. They typically use the...
