oh golly what to say, this local shop is nothing but a big friggin rip off. at there website they had some fans listed at $5 each, so went down to their store, and they had them for $13 at the store, and they didn't even have connectors, just bare wire. they did have some 3 pin led fans, but they wanted $24 for each fan, what a crock. I was so pissed, I stayed and looked around and in the front of the store they where showing off a custom case they modded, or at least that is what they say. was nothing more than a chieftec case with a window.
Now get this, this pc was their showcase pc in the front of the shop and i looked in it, and the wiring looked like a cluster f***. And I told them that it is sad that they display a pc with this [content edited] of a wiring job, no cable sleeving not even an attempt to route the cables or tie them up at all. was disgusting and for that they charged some 400 bucks holy geez. I should get into this business. would only charge 50 for a general assembly and for a good wiring job another 50 as that takes me longer than putting entire pc together.
anyways, got 2 fans from newegg in 2 days installed them last night, and fired that puppy up and started folding at 100% and temps stayed steady at 47C all night long, where before it would jump to 50 almost instantly and keep climbing. definately a keeper. Cleaned up the boys pc yesterday. lots and lots of furballs in that sucker, but is all nice and purty now. so will start getting the data moved off of it. then get it folding.
on a side note. Norton Friggin sucks. installed AVG on these 2 pcs as I had it on mine, 6 friggin trojans, and 3 virus's that have been on this pc for 6 months and Norton never found them. but AVG did and it even found them before I updated the virus def. holy geez. Norton will never get another dime from me.
