Drama Over, GOW is Back!

Drama over, GOW is back!A couple of weeks ago, we reported on a problem with Gears of War and it's DRM. Epic used a digital certificate which was time limited, and expired on the 28th of January. This meant that players could not gain access to the game after this date, unless they altered their system clocks to before the 28th. They have now patched the problem out, and players can gain acees to the game.

The announcement was made on the offical Gears of War website, and the patch is available to download immediately. This affair may have left a bitter taste in many players mouths regarding an already controversial  subject, which is the use of DRM within modern games. It certainly won't have done any good for Epic's PR status, especially as Gears of Wars owners were left unable to play the game for 10 days.

I'm looking for some 120mm fans which glow white.

I want either a white, clear or black fan body.

Any ideas?

I have some enermaz 120's and 92's.
They look awesome, and the best thing is you can switch the led's on or off

I was wanting recommendations really as I'm not sure which ones are good.

The Xigmatec's aren't what I'm looking for for this build.

The Enermax's look nice, but I'm not sure if they're quite what I'm looking for.

Does anyone have any experience with these fans? http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Akasa-AK-FN055-120mm-Crystal-Clear-Frame-and-bright-white-rotor-blade-w-4-white-LED

By the looks of the specs, dead quiet and shift a lot of air at max revs. Nice!

See as my user title will attest, I believe db ratings about as much as I believe that 'the cheque is in the post', 'the dog ate it' and 'it doesn't taste of anything'.

So please tell me they really are inaudible. I'd be delighted to be proven wrong.
