For me? some $700 USD charge showed up on my credit card in California... but I'm in Alberta, Canada! Luckily my bank is good and noticed it and froze my VISA until I called them. My credit card was cancelled and they're now issuing me a new one. Phew! :)

Well other than that? I ordered a new DC Jack for a friend's busted DC jack on his Alienware M14X R2. I'm gonna solder on a new one for him and I'm gonna make him pay me $40 and I might put that towards MGS 5. :D

So bought 6 GT AP-14's. Two of them arrived broken. One doesn't spin at all, just moving it by hand is hard, and one of them vibrates like crazy.

Also dissapointed in them slightly. While they are quiet, at 7v they are louder(mechanically not air noise) than my Fractal GP-14's at 12v. At 7v it pushes about the same amount of air but more SP for sure. At 12v the GPs are actually damn silent. Debating if I should refund all 6 and maybe get some Noctua's or Fractal Venturi's. Thoughts?

I got the refund for just the 2 broken ones. To refund the other fans I would have to pay some fees on the other 4 which is as much as one fan.. so wasn't worth it.
Was just looking at the NF-F12 or looking at the Redux versions. Darn expensive even though I paid $20 per GT. The fractal's are only couple dollars cheaper than the GTs but not sure how well the perform. I just like the look of them

Ya they arrived when the lady wasnt here. Got lucky:p
I don't like my SP120s. Overrated by a mile. In comparison they feel like crap in your hand to the GTs or the GP14s.
I'd get more GP14s since you have the Define S. I love that at 12v are completely silent. Doesn't move much air at only 1000rpm but it looks sexy so who cares:)
I personally hate LED fans. Rather get an LED strip and get higher quality fans:p
