Small yet powerful and clean looking 6/17/2020 10:08:50 AM

Pros: The fan was easy to install. I am using it as an I/O cooler. Asus provided a little L bracket mount for a 40 or 50 mm fan and I chose this one because of the white color. It looks good, is silent, and adjusts to speed with no noise. Fits perfectly on the bracket and isn't much of an eyesore.

I more purchased it as Asus gave me the option to add an additional fan. For most, it isn't needed unless if overclocking. I am using a Z390 with an i7 9th gen with a Cromax Noctua single 140mm fan CPU cooler with the white Chromax cover. Looks great paired together.

Cons: No cons.

Overall Review: I would recommend this fan if needing a cheap 50 mm fan. Simple design, solid coloring, runs smooth and easily installed.

Good Fan 5/18/2020 7:10:52 AM

Pros: Nice and silent.
Good Contruction.

Cons: Not a PWM fan, only 3-pin.

Overall Review: It's hard to find a quality fan in the unusual 50mm form factor. I'm disappointed they didn't have a 4-pin version, but the 3-pin is quiet enough even at full RPM.

Works as advertised 5/17/2020 9:52:17 AM

Pros: Needed 80mm fans, and these did the trick. Not silent, but not noisy either. Did not need molex connectors, like the older fans they replaced.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Seems like a solid choice.
