Summary: The fan on the QX9650 was awesome. Quiet, large, 2-speeds, and very effective. So why ditch a perfectly good fan? And why not highlight the heck out of this little point on the main product page? Nothing like another delay while I order a fan, or drive an hour to local store to find a Kalman. Jeesh!
Pros: Fast enough for you.
Cons: $1400 and no fan?? What makes this model so special to not include same fan as on QX9650??
Summary: Silly me for thinking retail box meant HSF included
Pros: I don't know yet, but I am sure that once i fire it up i will be amazed...
Cons: Well it was mostly my fault on this one... I assumed... i assumed it came with a heatsink and i did not read the part where it says it does not have a cooling device, cpu only. so I opened the box and realized no HSF, so i ordered a Zalman 9700NT and it should be here soon.
