yea i've cut myself on my processor fan....vishious it was, but i can stop my 120's or my graphix fan and it wont hurt, then again the 120's arn't running very fast. i will look into this fan though, i want to get a powerful one for my "The Terd" project

Opps...

I dont have a fan cover on the 120mm fan on the front of the computer, because the one we had restricted air flow, so anyone can put there hand in there....

I've tried it though once by "mistake", and it stopped, so its safe

I wouldn't try it for instance though on those Tornado fans that spin at 5000 odd RPM, haha.

Mooseman, the most powerful fans i know of are Deltas, and those hurt, a lot. Sanyos arent bad either, but they have curved edges, www.petrastechshop.com has the sanyos, and www.sidewindercomputers.com have the deltas.

Oh yes. You definately DO NOT want to get a finger caught in a Delta running at full blast. I own one, and I was lucky it was running at lowest, or I might be missing the tip of my index finger. Heh, still hurt like a bitch though...kinda felt like a needle going in, then it started numbing and had this dull throbbing pain. Pretty annoying.
