    Here's a big clue



    Full of Rubycon, NCC, and Ltec. No piece of junk here. Probably better performing regulation and ripple wise than a lot of what you can buy out there.

    Because it's not a pure delta system.

    ADDA Fans are cheaper, and Dell probably asked for them to cut costs.

    Delta fans always run rough.

    More reliable? Maybe. Would you pick it over an Adda by ear? No.

    That's really not true.

    Though it would be accurate to say that a majority of Delta fans are made to run higher (in RPM's) than most people are used to. And thus usually produce more noise.

    But when you undervolt them, or lower their speed with PWM, then they can get as quiet as other fans because of their good designs.

    And Delta does have low-speed (aka quiet) models as well.

    Yeah, every Delta fan I've laid hands on makes kind of a soft motor boat noise when it runs slow. Could just be my bad luck, but all my NMB and Adda are much better in this regard.

    What's the consensus on Ltec? I haven't seen them all that much in the top tier, but never heard of them being blacklisted anywhere.

    I've heard they're about on par with Teapo.
