    Haha i almost totaled my blorb!!!!!!

    Wow what a scare. I took my GF2MX out of the case cos the fan on te blorb was making a racket!(anyone else got a dodgy blorb fan?)
    anyway i found that one of the fins had snaped off, how i have no idea .
    So i removed the fin and put the blorb back. Now after turning on the system, one of the pins holding it in flew off! lol and landed on my kt7! it starting glowing too ! must of landed on a resistor or something but the plastic was yellow . So in panic i turned the machine off and examined the pin.It was bent to s@*t. But the mobo was ok.
    Anyway i definately got a good scare. The pins must of come loose for some reason. And now another fin has broken off so i no longer have the fan plugged it. Damm it sounds louder than my delta So now i am using the thermal tape to apply the sink.

    Phew i think is the best word to describe this

    I think all of the fault lies with Phillip for broken fan blades. You know phillips head screwdrivers

    Haha, that's pretty funny

    I made my BLOrb quiet by giving it 7v instead of 12v.

    Use the supplied 3pin to 4pin adapter, and change the wires accordingly.

    I just unscrewed the fan on mine, oiled it while it was running and now it is (was) one of the quietest fans in my case.... they tend to run dry quite quickly. I'll have to get a new one for my Geforce2 Pro. Its a right pain the way they need lapping and oiling before u use the damn things. I'm suprised that they are made so poorly
