Scythe Gentle Typhoon High RPM series Review
By virtue of visiting the hallowed realm of OC3D you have already identified yourself as a connoisseur and as such appreciative of all things "high end", something of an aficionado when it comes to selecting the very best kit your hard earned wedge can buy. It comes as no surprise then that you will already be aware that Scythe produce some of the very best fans on the market. The Gentle Typhoon 1850rpm can be thought of pretty much the Wayne Rooney of the fan world, like Mr Rooney, it's no looker, but it can be guaranteed to get the job done.
Some of you will also know that the Scythe Gentle typhoons actually originate from a company called Nidec Servo, in fact their logo can be clearly seen on the box.
All this is very interesting of course, but you're probably beginning to wonder where it's going. That said as astute devotees of all things great and good you've probably already worked out exactly what we're going to be looking at in this review. And if you haven't, then the title of the review should have given you an idea at least.
So what's all this about then? High RPM? How high? Well simply put, should you so desire you can actually get the quite wonderful Gentle Typhoon fans in some quite ridiculous RPMs. How ridiculous? Well how does 3000rpm sound? not ridiculous enough? Try 4250RPM. Still not mad enough for you? Then take a bite out of the totally insane 5400RPM model, and while you're at it, be careful it doesn't take a bite out of you!
Lets have a look at the numbers then shall we.
