    £5.99?
    Yeah, I'll pass. I've never found a cheap Silverstone fan that I didn't want to throw at the wall in furious disappointment.

    Silverstone seemingly make two widely separated lines of products - Low priced stuff that is utter cack and not even worth burning as effigies of technology, and quite expensive stuff that tends to be stunningly awesome.

    Get yourself a mate, who has read something on the internet and assumes that this means he knows far more than you, but is only paying you to do this work as it's beneath him and he has no interest in doing it himself....
    Then sit down and swap out the seventeen Noctua fans in his Push-Pull watercooled and flippin' fiddly case, before then installing seventeen brand new, cheap, flimsy Silverstone über-budget fans he got for £2 each, before running some benchmarks and being expected to deliver award-winning 8-Pack level performance....

    Yeah - Fan, wall, pub. In that order.

    Nope.
    As mentioned, he's a mate and was actually my Best Man. He's just an Old Man, from a different time in a faraway land, and is fully embracing both the cultural differences and the nuances of being an Old Man... as well as being a hip, happening, down-with-the-young-folk kind of IT support guy, who is a hipster without becoming a Hipster.

    It's complicated and he's a PITA at times, but the best friends usually are!

    Most of that will be threatening him with a large stick, to get off his backside and learn the technology himself. He's high-end IT support for a very well known American media company, for Pete's sake...!!

    There's more (50 years' worth) behind all this, but that doesn't make it any easier...


    But yeah, back to the topic.... Silverstone.
    Their cheap stuff tends to be cheap cack, expensive stuff tends to be flippin' awesome and well worth the money.
