Looks cont.

I thought it was about time i modded out my Silverstone TJ05 case, and as i had previously planned to add water cooling to it, now was a good time to add a radiator and some fans. Funnily enough i had some AC Ryan mesh fan filters in my pile of computer gear, so i decided to pop them on my case too.

Now lets turn the lights off, power the fans up and see whats in store!

Ah, it looks like we may have a bit of a problem here. Despite both of the fans being the same model, there is a destinct difference between the LED colours. The one on the left looks...well...pink.

My initial thoughts were that this may be down to the fans being hooked directly to my fan controller, and maybe one was recieving less power than the other, but after reconnecting both directly to a molex, it was clear that there was indeed a manufacturing issue here.

I have arranged for another couple of fans to be sent as i am curious to see if they have similar problems, however it would be nice to hear if AC Ryan have any explaination for this problem.

EDIT: The replacement fans have arrived, and i am pleased to say that they are the same colour - however, they are actually the same colour as the fan i previously described as being 'pink', which is a great shame.
