5 out of 5 eggsGreat fans, terrible screws

Pros: The blue look is pretty nice
Low sound, high airflow; I can turn these to max in a Nanoxia DS1 and I hear my water pumps over these

Cons: The screws...where to start...
First, the screws are a shade too big. The threading is also way too loose; Prolimatech definitely could have threaded these tighter. The most annoying thing is the mounting points aren't prethreaded, so either you have a power drill with the right head or a huge screwdriver.

Other Thoughts: I'm still giving it 5 stars because although it was kind of a pain to install, these fans are the reason my case is usually with 2 degrees of ambient.

5 out of 5 eggsCase fan

Pros: For a one speed fan it moves the bulk of the hot air out through the top of my case. QUIET! Looks great through fan grills. Easy to install, like most standard case fans.

Cons: One speed might be a con for some, but I don't mind it.

Other Thoughts: It was mentioned that this fan can be undervolted for slower speeds, but I don't think that is all that necessary when it's only running about 1100 RPMs.

5 out of 5 eggsTHE BEST !

Pros: Move a lot of air
Avg to low noise

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I placed it on top of my case Apex EL 660 and guys this fan can take some air from inside that case in a beautiful way. I don't believe is loud at all even connected it straight to the power supply also the wire is long enough for my case which is rather bigishhh. .

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good fan

Pros: Simple, understated design, attractive, not flashy. They move a lot of air and are relatively quiet doing so.

Cons: Out of the 4 I purchased, three are very quiet, you can only hear them at all at max speed. One, however, gets fairly loud even at low speeds. Not obnoxious, and it could be my install (though I don't think so, used rubber grommets and everything), but there is a kind of whining buzz at anything above the lowest speed. Not an issue for me since I installed it in a place that rarely needs more than minimum speed, but enough that I'd call it a con.

Other Thoughts: 3 out of 4 are perfect! They move lots of air, are very quiet, and look nice behind my black grilles, all at a very reasonable price.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing blue 140mm fans

Pros: Its blue, my case color theme
very quiet
sleeved cables
pushes a lot of air
comes with molex to 3pin (which I used)
Cheap

Cons: had to thread the fan myself
sleeve has a weird sticky residue on it

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these to add to the bottom and rear of my Fractal R4 after moving the exhaust to the front to have 2 front white fans in the front. I connected my front 2 and 1 prolimatech (mounted at the bottom) to be intake fans and connected to my fan controller that came with my case. And added the 2nd one to the rear. I can't express how happy I am with my setup. The exhaust blows very well and overall my case is nearly silent under typical operations. (I wear my headset when I game)

Not taking away any eggs due to how trivial the cons are.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and powerful

Pros: - Pushes lots of air
- Quiet. Can't hear it at all under 80% load.
- The blue color is nice. Looks good without being too flashy.

Cons: - The cord is a bit short (about 8"), which wasn't a problem for me, but might be for those using a big case.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these fans to replace the loud fans that came with my Fractal Design Define R4 case. I have them hooked up to an NZXT Sentry 2 fan controller.

3 out of 5 eggsDid I get a bad one?

Pros: Moves a lot of air.

Cons: I have 3 other case fans, a CPU fan, and a PSU fan. This fan is louder by itself than all of those running at once.

Other Thoughts: I got this fan because the reviews stated this moves a lot of air quietly. Maybe I just got a bad one. YMMV.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent fan

Pros: I wanted to add a fan to the top of my case, and this fan did the trick. It's quiet and moves a lot of air. The blue blades look great when my computer is not running.

Cons: None
