The ghost of Edsel Murphy rises again.
At least you are getting something better than what you had.
It really frustrates me when I have to replace multi-hundred dollar devices just because the maker wanted to save a few
cents on a fan.
Decent fans are available, but no manufacturer seems to be aware of that, they want to cheap out any way they can.
They know that no potential buyer will make a decision based on the quality of the fans, or the PSU, another favorite way
for the OEMs to save money.
