    Ah ok, yes that may be possible.

    I always set 5000 rpm, after 4100 or so you don't hear any changes in the spinning sound. I always thought that they are running at the max. then.

    I dont notice any changes in fan speed after 5800 rpm for the cpu and 4500 for the gpu, but I think they are definitely maxing out because I don't think they could spin much faster

    Did you remove the PWM wire for testing?, or by Software?

    I didn't on my current fan, but when i was soldering the modded fan I did the pwm fan incorrectly one time but it didn't go any higher then the max speed when it was done correctly

    That makes more sense to me since 100% PWM should just match missing PWM wire.

    Now the SW might not command 100%, that is different.

    If someone wants to try ordering the fan with the blue sticker on it instead of the green, it may be faster too. It's from a 3rd brand.

    Hi, Where can I get that fan? I have seen the green label on ebay at 300 euros, it seems a real scam to put them at that price when its real value does not reach or 10 euros....

    Thank you. I had been trying to get one like that for some time. Currently I have the one of the m14x r2 which I had to adapt it. This one that has linqueado seems to be plug and play. A greeting
