Grrr, just found out I'm going to need a 120mm fan for my sister's computer I'm (naturally, as a good tech-minded brother) providing support for. I'm really kicking myself since I noticed this thread when it started, January 18th to be exact (or at least that's when I added it to the 120mm fans sticky thread), but decided to pass since I wouldn't need a 120mm fan in the near future...or so I thought.

Anyhow, I would be interested in purchasing a good Yate Loon sample from one of you guys who wisely bought in bulk. Please send a PM my way! FYI I'm in south-east USA.

Thanks,
DrCR

DrCR,

Check this thread for an altnernative:
http://forums.silentpcreview.com/viewtopic.php?t=19639

Here's the link to the actual fan on the MadDog website:
http://www.maddogmultimedia.com/product ... -CF-UC.htm

I don't have any genuine Yate Loon's to compare it to, but I am VERY pleased with it. I bought 2 at CompUSA, and might buy a 3rd.

I previously had a Vantec Stealth Fan, which I never used because it was such a piece of trash (lots of motor/bearing noise at low RPM). The Mad Dog Tech Toys fan is the absolute opposite end of the spectrum, is very quiet at max RPM (1800), and at the low speed on a Zalman fanmate it's only audible if I put my ear right up next to it. It should scale VERY well from a noise/performance perspective when throttled using a program like speedfan.

Yeah, I am already familiar with the CompUSA/MadDog thread. That might be what I end up with since I don't won't to make my sister pay for a pricy Nexus.

Thanks pm_. Oh, and welcome to SPCR! :)

i still want the 4 dollar yaleloon haha. I can't afford a 12 bucks fan. that's a little out of my leage, if it comes to worst, i'm replacing them with alot of 80mm at very low votage.

Well I got my 55 Yate Loon D12SM-12 Crystal Clear fans two weeks ago. I thought I share a nice picture with you:

They are nice fans too, my two SLs might be a little bit more quiet but not very much.

:shock:

Try breaking them in all together daisy-chained and let us know what they sound like then!

I bought a few D12SM-12s (black) from PCTek. I'm finding them louder than the Tri-Cool in my SLK3000B. Is that to be expected?

This is true both at minimum speeds or maximum speeds.

I,

I am interested in your findings, but w/o any more info your post doesn't really help very much. The tri cool has a much greater top spd than the D12SM-12, and if you use the speed switch on the tri cool at the lowest setting its at 1200 rpm. There's no point in posting unless you atleast give the min/max spd. of your test. - FG

new fan at tekgems

There's a new 120 mm fan at Tekgems. It's a clear Logisys
for $3.60 w/purchase of 10. I don't have any specs. and neither does Mr. Kim - I'm sure you could get them from logisys. - FG

I believe this is an everflow from looking at the corners.

W,

Don't forget about the black D12SM-12's at www.pctekonline.com
The only draw back is they lack rpm sensors. They are 10 for 45.00 or 5.50 each. - FG

I just got an email from geeks.com that their orange Yate Loon fans are back in stock. I had this item on my wish list for what seems to be a few months. Also looks like its in stock at iSellSurplus. This was the company that I ordered from and was very good. The blue LED medium speed is also available at both places.

Am I missing something, because I don't see the low-speeds in stock at either place?...

They apparently only had a few -- and they are sold out, again...

One of those sites said they had 1000 of the blue yate loons(after the orange ones were gone), and now all of those are already gone?

Umm... OK I skimmed through this entire thread. I decided I wanted to buy 10 of the tekgems yate loons, but I see no way to get the bulk price... is that gone now? That's too bad... so we're basically saying that it's either:

For the low-speed version:
$11/fan at http://tekgems.com/Products/et-13713-fan-d12sl-12.htm

For the medium-speed-no-rpm-sensing version:
$5.50 or 10/$45.00 at http://shop.store.yahoo.com/pctekonline ... sefan.html

And from the posts I've read, I understand that they can both achieve similar low-rpm's (with similar sound levels), with the main differences being that the medium speed version can achieve higher rpm's, and the medium speed version has no rpm sensing.

Does this all sound about right? Cuz I'm about to buy the medium speed version, because I don't care about rpm sensing, and they should (theoretically) be just as quiet as the tekgems low-speed version. as long as I undervolt. Someone please correct me if I got this wrong... :?

Thanks!

PS, that sounds about right. If you go in for it, check out this fan controller, it comes with four 3-pin to 4-pin adapters so that you can dynamically undervolt any fan.

I personally would go for the pctek SMs, but that's just me.

The difference between low and medium speed isn't much, only a couple of hundred RPMs. TBH I wouldn't worry about which one you get unless you absolutely have to run it at 12V - if you're cutting it that fine choose another fan.

Just as a reminder last I heard the pctekonline guy was substituting young lin fans in place of the D12SM-12's. There's a parallel thread about this. Be careful. - FG

quantity purchase for orange yate loons

I do see a quantity price for the orange yate loons. You can get [email protected]$, [email protected]$, [email protected][email protected]$9.50

Posted: Tue May 24, 2005 1:43 pm
by PS
damn FG, you're faster than I am, and I even had the inside scoop! :lol:

Yeah the tekgems dealer pm'd me that he'd put the quantity discount back up there when the next shop update occurred. I guess that has already happened. So I think I'm gonna buy me 10 of the orange yate loons from tekgems. I should come out with at LEAST 3 or 4 excellent fans, right? And I'll be saving money compared to buying 4 Nexus's, so... I guess it's a decent way to go.

Where I'll put all my extra fans in my little ass apartment is another question altogether.... :?

Posted: Tue May 24, 2005 2:19 pm
by frankgehry
my guess is that you will end up with 7 excellent ones, 1 marginal one, and two that "sound like tree branches on a tin roof". (original quote from yeha not refering to these fans)

I have to say that hunting down a place to sell those Yate Loon UV fans in Europe is a tough job..

These are obviously Yate Loons, as even graphics have been copied from YL website and model numbers match, but specifications are completely different to what YL website tells: :-o

http://prisguide.hardware.no/vis_katego ... r_id[]=922

And no, I do not read norwegian either :-].

Oddly enough, search with name CyberCooler brought out _Panaflo_ labeled fan sold with same CyberCooler brand:

http://www.amamax.com/fncybb833csefan12cm.html

Why on Earth does those chinese companies have to sell their products in different names? One could imagine it would make good to their business if people were able to find their products..

But hey, if you happen to live in US, this site sells them: http://www.case-mod.com/store/120mm-cas ... -1708.html

It's too bad they do not ship to Europe :-(.

Since my other topic mentioning the $4 per fan sale got locked because of previous topics existing, I'll bump this one. Here's the web page:
http://tekgems.com/Products/et-13713-fan-d12sl-12.htm

Also, can anyone tell me if the RPM sensing is enabled in this? It has 3 wire and 4 wire connections so I would think it is?

Yes, tach signal works on this fan. :)

D12SL-12 is the right model number, but the picture is black instead of the orange fans I got awhile back.

Regular price $8, now $3.99
