"Top motor" brand fans? any opinions?

Postby Pechorin » Tue May 14, 2002 10:14 pm

Some of you may remember that I was searching for 92mm fans with a thermal controled rpm adjustment feature. Enermax and thermaltake make these in the 80mm size but not at 92mm. Well I found some!

Top Motor makes thermo-controlled 92mm fans! My only problem is that I have never used a top motor fan and am curious if there is any reason not too. So if you have experience with this brand, let me hear it!!

Thanks 8)

Edit:
Upon further investigation, I am led to believe that Top Motor fans and Antec fans are one in the same. If you can verify this, I'd appreciate it.

From my quick scan around the net, I came up with this website...
http://www.dynatron-corp.com/prodList.asp?cID=5 Can't pin it down for sure, but they seem to be saying that they make the fans.

Also, here's a couple of places that sell the Enermax fan you're looking for...

Thanks for the links Tolemac. However, the Enermax fan you linked to is not thermal-controlled; it has a manual speed adjustment switch. The Enermax thermal-control fans have an eight inch wire with a thermal diode on the end to govern rpms and are not yet available in 92mm. Thanks anyway.

Thanks, like I said, I believe Top Motor makes the fans for Antec. I've decided against both the Antecs and TM as the thermal diode is located directly on the fan. Therefore it only measures temps by the fan and not in the case. I'll wait for Enermax to make a 92mm version of theres that has a wired diode.
