5 out of 5 eggsawesome fan

Pros: Put this fan on my water cooler radiator and I wouldn't have it any other way. Moves an insane amount of air to keep my CPU cool

Cons: A wider variety of styles and maybe LEDs would be cool

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding fans

Pros: Quiet, move plenty of air, not bad looking in you're into orange.

Cons: The sleeving on the cable is pretty odd. It's not your standard mesh sleeve and feels more like a rubber coated cloth. It kinks when you bend it. That's about the worst thing I can come up with though.

Other Thoughts: I put two of these in pull configuration on my H100i running with the stock fans in push mode. I've got these set to ramp up faster than the factory Corsair fans since the stock fans can get pretty noisy at full clip. This setup has lowered the overall sound profile of the H100i by at least 10db and I'm not sacrificing any cooling ability in the process. I intend to pick up a pair of the black versions to replace the Corsair fans later since they're visible through the front mesh on my case.

5 out of 5 eggscool and quiet

Pros: Heavy quality made fans
Moves a ton of air
great looking as they are
PWM motherboard controlled speed

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: replaced the stock 120mm fan with two of these on my Cooler Master Hyper 21 EVO CPU cooler for in and out operation and WOW, Quiet and the fact that they are made to last is reassuring when closing the case cover.

4 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: These fans are solid through and through in both material and function. I didn't bother with the rubber "screws," as they're a major pita, but these fans emit more noise in the form of air than actual mechanical function.

There's no noticeable bearing grinding of any kind when the fan is vertical, and the cabling is very solid. It makes you feel like someone actually enjoyed waking up in the morning to make this fan.

Cons: These don't seem to like being placed horizontal (top fan) as much as vertical. I do notice what is either a higher vibration or minute bearing "ticking" when in this position. It's barely recognizable 1-1/2 meters away.

Other Thoughts: I can't distinguish the noise of other fans (water cooler block, and a couple other OEM fans) and what noise this fan may be making without practically putting my face near them.

The minor vibration/ bearing buzz aside, in real use this is never noticeable. I'll definitely pick up more of these to drop in and replace my remaining 2 OEM fans. The only issue is that I have a 140mm fan on my waterblock as well.

In the end, my system is dramatically quieter than my full stock config, and will certainly be quieter still when replacing the remaining 2 fans.

I don't have a means to measure Decibels, but like "bottom dyno's," my ears tell me I've lost half the noise as before.

My case is an Antec P182, which is already a considerably quiet case.

These are well worth the cash, but I wonder how they perform against other high end fans like Noctua's. I know people put money in everything but fans, but do your gear and your ears a favor -- get some nice fans! Air volume is noticeably improved.

5 out of 5 eggsGood fans.

Pros: Inexpensive (when I got them on sale), compared to Case Manufacturer fans (Corsair / Cooler Master / Antec, etc.). Good air flow, PWM, no hassle installation in a Corsair 400R.

Cons: None that I have found...

However, as required by internet etiquette, should I later have any trouble what so ever, I will be sure to return and post a highly negative review; that will likely suggest that all those involved with the design, production and distribution of this piece of computer hardware have limited mental faculties (to the point of warranting a clinical diagnosis), that they devised the failure of the part as a deliberate plan to show the up most contempt and malice towards me personally and that they may very well all hail from questionable heritage.

Other Thoughts: I would buy these again for any future builds. Probably should have ordered spares when these were on sale for $7.00 each.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I feel like if you need serious airflow and serious quiet operation, this fan is the exact right option. You can get a little quieter for a huge drop in power, or a little more power for constant noise.

They're not kidding about the directed flow. This thing puts air exactly where you point it. I have it directed into the channel separating my two SLI'd video cards, and I think it's the best fan for the job bar none.

Cons: Not silent at the speed I selected, though I can't hear it from where I sit (3-4 feet away)

1 out of 5 eggs2nd review lasted about 4 months

Pros: when they worked, they work well.

Cons: I bought 2 of this & now Fans must be set to full speed when they are in cool or cold temps (in the mornings) from bios screen for at least 2 hours before they perform at 800rpms & faster. THAT SUCKS for a 4pin fans.

Other Thoughts: Now I must buy a fan controller cause it would cost to much to freight them back to manufacture!!
