I found some really reliable fans!

I got the chance today to open up a server rack at a client that I've been eager to open for a good few years... I've always wanted to find out what brand of fan could survive a harsh environment 24/7 for the past 4+ years without failing...

The rack itself receives very little maintenance, lives in a busy school office with temperatures at times exceeding 35°C (95°F) and basically only gets looked at when a problem arises.
The rack itself is maintained by another company, a pity as I would love to get it in a better state!

So the best fans I have seen in a very long time and would highly recommend is from a company called FullTech (http://www.fulltech.com.tw/)

Ironically at the same time I was playing around I found a busted fan in one of my devices (the device is only about 2 years old) in the exact same rack... The fan in this case was so full of dust it simply stopped and was overheating, even trying to push the fan blades resulted in little if any movement...
