    My Tt Orb 3 fan blades decided to hit the gaurd that is over top the fan and broke one of the blades. :mad: Now it's a little off balance and makes a really bad vibrating sound. Not to mention a 2 degree temp increase. Anyone ever replaced these fans with something better. It's a little hard to since the fan is built inside the orb. But I was wondering if anynone here ever replaced it with a better one. The one I have is only the 5000rpm fan. Although my mobo says its running about 5750. I wouldnt mind having one thats running 7000+. Noise doesn't bother me. The more CMF, the better:D

    Well, I do believe tt has a replacement meant for upgrading an older orb. It includes a new gold cover tt link for it
    Hope this can help u. And it's a 7000rpm too so its alot better. I have the same orb.

    Orbs really suck something bad and you'd be a lot better off throwin' it and buyin' a Volcano 7+.

    i seem to like the volcano 11 that i got the other day. the speed control is fancy too, and it pushes a lot of air at max rpms
