    I've contemplated buying. But...is it really worth it. Does anyone out there have one? Do you like it? I've got plenty of room left on my case to cut holes in it, so placing it is no problem.

    infact after seeing then put 92mm fans on 80mm screw bases, I was expecting someone to put a 150 on a 120mm base

    Thermaltakehave just released a 130mm fan that fits into a 120mm mounting holes that looks pretty sweet.

    Never come across 150mm fans, although my mate was planning to use some 200mm steel-blade fans (bloody deadly things) in a project, but it never came to build.

    I've seen them but the ones I saw were LOUD and power usage was significant.

    I was referring to this fan, or ones just like it (yes, they exist...and a friend has built a case door out of fans, including this one)

    I haven't seen those 150mm fans before, but I have seen some 170mm fans (I think) that moved like 200cfm or something outrageous like that. The fans I saw had to have aluminum casings because they generated so much torque.

    i guess when it comes right down to it, 150mm fans are more of a burdon...but still...showing off a 150mm fan would be pretty funny.

    I cant think of a situation where a 150mmm fan would be advatageous if you are anything close to a human being (that can hear properly). We have 120mm "Silent" fans that people dislike due to noise levels, let alone a 150mm 265CFM one!!

    Delta make fans of all sizes, shapes, configs etc.

    I did see on an American site, years ago, 162mm high-output delta fans.

    The kind of thing you couldn't actually speak over really.. Who would put that in a computer? :confused:

    Lower output maybe though.. higher CFM, nice low noise. But there's not really provision for things like that in most cases.

    With all due respect, can you hear properly?

    Multiple fans, if configured right, and not all run of the 12v rail, can be as quiet as a rabbit on a motorway. Add speedfan and a PWM fan controller, and it's just slightly higher than norm.

    Size is everything, the bigger the fan, the slower it needs to run, and the noise is reduced. If i had a 150mm fan, this lot would get junked big time.
