    Frisian, but that's not very useful I guess.

    Well I hated French at school, and only had it for one year. So I don't remember much, it was also about 10 years ago. But I understand German, only reading and writing isn't that great anymore, because I never use it.

    I did, but the yellow transformers are a downside (or is that a CWT thing?), so in the end it doesn't make a difference. Nothing beats a golden plated heatsink of course, it's just like a gold plated HDMI connector, so much better!!!1

    Thanks for the review, Mask: IMVHO the only interesting fact about that unit is that definitely the Antec FDB fan REALLY sucks! Someone should be fired there, or so about.

    Whether those PCBs had been black or dark brown, I would have agreed with you: but those red-ish (pink? salmon?) and green ones are so "appalling" (I think only MSI did worse with their LGA775 boards) that I think quite the opposite.

    I guess both black & green tapes are reserved by Corsair.

    Probably but I can remember green tapes on something other than corsair. Nothing to write home about though.

    Well that aren't my words.

    But I'm curious if it's really the same fan as in the Corsair HXi series, like GI_Joe stated here.

    Who knows? Actually GI_Joe never published any shot of the Antec disassembled fan.
