I was just going to buy 80mm Antec fans tomorrow but everyone seems to love these fans.

I will look into getting these instead.

Hehe i was just moments away from posting the same deal myself. A bunch of us hopped on this deal the last time. Now to debate if i'll need/want 10 more....

Build yourself a wall of fans 5 high and 2 wide, keep ya nice'n chilly during the summer months. Or build yourself a funnel contraption to induct some cooler air.

Alternatively they can be rigged as a blender/drink mixer/smoothie machine/alcohol fermenter ;), You can finally build that better mousetrap you've been dreaming of.as well (eww the gore!)

Boy how the creative juices can flow on my day off from work :p

Edit: What the heck i ordered 10 more, for $10 it feels like a gift.

The deal is not bad due to the price, but they are sleeve bearing fans. If you want something decent, spend a bit more for ball bearing fans IMO.

I picked up 10 of these, last time they came up. They're decent fans, I've used 5 of the 10, so far.

What did you ever do with 25 fans?

Back in the day when i was still building/selling rigs, these things were great to have stockpiled. They were always an annoying (but necessary) added cost when i was building someone a rig, but at $1 each they're practically free.

As soon as I hit the bank and deposit my paycheck this is getting ordered... I missed it last time, but I need 5 right now anyway, so why not get some more? :cool:

someone posted this a month or so ago. I think several people got 11 shipped, including myself, instead of 10.

I actually got in on this same deal a couple months ago and I was pretty tickled pink about what I got for my money.

sure, the fans arent top-of-the-line by all means but they do what they're supposed to do and some.

and considering their price at a buck a piece, I'd say they're worth every penny.

Just ordered my ten. I wonder how these will do at 7V - anyone with any experience with 7-volting these?

My fans arrived today. 10 fans each with 3 pin speed sense and standard 4 pin molex connection with only the +12 and ground leads, so you can't do the 7 volt mod unless you move the leads on the molex pins. The cables are sleeved in black nylon and each fan comes with 4 mounting screws (which also double as fan grill screws). Great buy and I am glad I posted this.

Also, I just ordered 10 chrome fan grills for $10.00 with free shipping to use on these fans. here is the link...

douglas, your link points to fan grills for 90mm fans, but the fans from NewEgg are 80mm. Mayhaps the link changed?

I finally borrowed a credit card from my dad so that I could take advantage of this great deal. I'm glad that I was wrong about the deal being over.

This is a great deal for me to jump on since I build PCs for friends and family. I ordered 10 about a month ago and ordered ten more tonight.
