Foxconn to quit motherboard market?A couple of weeks ago, OC3D reported on industry whispers that had been heard regarding Foxconn. The short story is that Foxconn are rumoured to be moving out of the end user, branded motherboard market. Although the original story was met with disbelief by some, it seems that these whispers are being heard elsewhere too. Digitimes have published an article with the same story to tell as our original article. Foxconn are said to have told their sales team to stop taking orders on some motherboard models and to stop gathering order volume forecasts on them too. This is indicative of a company who is clearing out stock.
 
Foxconn have answered to these rumours on the expreview website. Eric Zhu,channel manager of Foxconn was quoted to have said that the rumours were untrue and that the reason behind stopping taking orders was for the sales dept. to adjust the existing stock for a few days. He was also keen to highlight how well Foxconn are doing with their motherboard sales.

Hey guys. Just ordered 3 of these for a 360mm radiator, they are the white 110cfm 120mm silverstone fans. Usually well over £10 but on sale for £5 at afterhours.co.uk. Thought some people on here might be interested.

Just done a lil research and while even the 122s are cheaper it seems the 121s are better... Also a little better than the 123s. Quite tempted to buy a few.. Would get rid of the controller and use my own though.

That said, Yates are still meant to be better.

Nice price though :)

I think the silverstone fans look nicer though, and they're really going to help pull off my black and white case theme once I get all my money sorted for my next project! :D

They are awfully loud at full whack (where they shift 110CFM). I bought 3 months ago to replace the fans in a NZXT Lexa but instantly chucked them in the toot box after hearing how loud they are.

Could a fan controller not deal with the noise? or were they even too loud at that speed?

At 1000-1200 RPM they are much less intrusive, but the CFM drops rapidly and theres better alternatives in that area (Xilence RedWings or Scythe S-Flex for example).
