Any word from Scythe on when they're going to have N. America distribution again?

For what it's worth the Scythe USA website has this to say at http://www.scytheus.com/

"We expect to be back in operation by end of October under a new management team at a new location in La Puente, California. "

I will be glad when they are back up and running with product available.

I got me a few 140mm Slip Stream XT's, two each of the 800 RPM and 500 RPM, and the sample variance was significant. One of each model has a lot of ticking going on anywhere beyond lowest possible speed above 5V, while one of each were fine. The practical speed of the two 500's were a bit above 600 while the 800's were fairly close to their spec at just above 800. So for case use I'd limit myself to the "500" model, if I buy them again. Kinda reminds me of the old Slip Stream 140 which of two bought separately were both clickers, as oposed to the original 120mm Slip Stream model of which I've had over a dozen samples all being just fine. To me this significant range of variance bothers me much more than any low specs in the MTBF category.

They are inexpensive, but it makes them feel too cheap, even if they certainly are being scrutinised beyond the average consumer level. Even the ticking samples are after all ok for average builds, especially if used well inside a case like on a CPU cooler. I liked the full sized frame and the included extra set of holes for 120mm mounting makes it possible to combine with something like 120 fan guards, filters or what not. The included silicone mounting pins were a good bonus and installable without needing much tugging at their ends to engage. With a bit of fiddling they could practically be pushed on even when reaching the pull-end was not possible, something the designers of such pins should really aim for.

Might be old news, but I just noticed that the America website now are alive and kicking. And there's a list of resellers, so it seems Scythe finally got their act together.

Thanks for the info, its nice to see scythe back in the US, hope to see their prodcuts at the usual prices on the US, kinda sad that no amazon just newegg (my cc are not accepted there), but i guess Frozen n PerformancePC should do.

GTs have been available even without ScytheUSA, i believe they were importing them directly due to high demand there is for the 1850rpm version, some were not imported though like 500rpm version, but the higher 1850/1450/1150 usually were in stock, i think when we see CPU heatsinks on those sites might be the time when US supplier is already functioning.

It looks like the tried and trusted Slip Stream 120-M is now included in the 120mm fan charts with the new setup. It would be nice to have a spectrum diagram of it, for the sake of reference :D.
