    those fan clips look awesome, probably a much better ergonomic/humanistic choice than those fiddly noctua metal clips which you realize you didn't put on properly only after you've refitted your motherboard into your case and have to dice with death putting the clips on. (with the machine still on, i may have been under the influence of something at the time)

    Well this is a bit OT, but I will be really disappointed if SOME cooler isn't going to take the crown from the TRUE this year... It's been the king of the hill for quite a while already.

    i really liked the noctua clips... really satisfying when they finally clicked home into the hole on the fan... although i might be a bit of a weirdo in that regard (and i can't give an opinion on intoxicated fan attachment)

    30% more airflow than a standard fan with traditional blades running at the same RPM, also the airflow is more focused directly below the fan, less escapes sideways, that 30% extra is achieved without any increase in sound level.

    they look very similar to the method of fan mounting the arctic freezer pro has , if i'm right its a kind of rubber which you pull the fan into.

    the only problem i felt was when i was mounting the fan i thought i'd stretch the rubber so much it would break.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess its a fan with traditionally shaped fins, on the basis that the S-Flow has 'S' shaped blades. I find it hard to believe that you can't work out something as obvious as that so I'll put that down to you wanting to be facetious.

    The veracity of the claim is obviously under question but what the claim itself is pretty self-evident.

    The fan blades look to be copying the designs used by some aero engine manufacturers on their intake fans,moves more air than straighter blades varieties.The GE-90 engine springs to mind.

    Is it? Really? Not according to all tests. There are way too many different test results out there.
    I'd say we just wait for a couple of reviews of the Nero S before we jump to any conclusions, hmkay?

    I can appreciate some people not wanting LED fans, but with many cases having windows now, surely a brown/black colour scheme would be the last combination people would go for. After cooling performance, asthetics are something I find quite important, but im shallow. So if it isn't going to have lights, i'd have white/red colour combo.

    I hated that motherboard we all discussed a while back with its brown PCB, I forget the name of it now.

    But I actually think this looks really good. If I hadn't just water cooled, I would be all over this when it comes out. I have the akasa vortexx(xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) neo cooler for my gfx card and it is great. The temps aren't massively better than the zalman one that was on my card, but it is achieving those at a lower noise level than my pump, which annoyingly is the loudest thing in my case.

    Looks promicing. 30% is bit stout a claim for a fan, will wait for FrostyTec review on that. Their Nero review was pretty quite tho. And Akasa makes some good looking fans, where was the market research team on the colors of this one?? Might could work it into some sort of desert camo mod maybe, how many of them do you see?? Can you say Krylon??? ROFL
    Wonder what it weighs, and how much ram clearance it has? And does not seem tobe much Akasa distribution in the states.
    Fan mounting seems good plan tho. Yep, reviews will be welcome.

    Those silicone fan mounts are really great. I used them instead of simple screws with which the rear fan in my Sonata was held, and the difference is audible, since with the screws the side panel was vibrating quite badly.

    They are available, e.g., from Nexus, if you have their products available:
