    Question When will Noctua restock their product?

    I've been waiting for Noctua to restock their NA-SAVP1 Chromax.Black Anti-Vibration Fan Mounts for a while now. I didn't think it was that hard to make a piece of rubber, but knowing Noctua they had their engineers think real hard to the point of an aneurism before slapping that on a fan and...
