decided to grab a photo.

Nice.

I think a lot of people here would have a pretty similar pile of stock fans and coolers lying around. I've got about 5 TriCools sitting around, as well as various other stock heatsinks and coolers. :lol:

Well, I got a pile of Acceleros at home: an S1 and an S2, plus a TwinTurbo and a Turbo Module...
I just buy them used at ridiculous prices and save them for hotter times. Big shiiiiiiiiiiiny aluminum :mrgreen:

So clean compared to my collection.

Eww, Zalman F1s... I have to say they're amongst worst 80mm fans I've ever used. :lol: What are the white round things on the fins of one of them?

I just went through my pile last night before reading this.

My pile was mostly various 80mm fans, mostly old Yate-Loon D80SM-12s (3-pin and molex), with a couple GlobalWin NCBs and Scythe's in the mix.

I'll have another D12SM-12 in the pile after the weekend when I upgrade my WHS. I have a PWM Slipstream I'll put in it from my new Mugen (for my gaming machine).

The worst ever for me were Vantec 80mm Stealths, in '04 or so. Those were awful in hindsight. I was deceived by their marketing at the time. :?

My worst so far has been a 120mm Thermaltake 2,000 RPM LED fan. It has poor airflow sound quality, and resonates very badly at all speeds. It's sitting in my fan pile right now. :twisted:

My pile is about 2/3 bad or broken fans, and about 1/3 good fans. I'd like to use my blue LED Apevia fan again, but not in place of my excellent NB M12-S2.

My fan pile consists: 2 Noctua P12's ( came with coolers ) 3x Slipstream 800 and 1x Slipstream 1200, AeroCool Turbine 3000, 7x Antec Tricool's and 2 regular non-tricool antec 120mm's, 2x Nexus 120mm RealSilent's and 1x Scythe Kama-Fex.. and then I found out some evil Thermaltake multiled-fan colored LedFan 2000 - 2500 rpm...
