Good fan, moves a lot of air, and no exactly where near as loud as some people claim it to be. None. Organizing on replacing my 3x 120mm xigmateks applied for my rad, with these.

I wanted a couple fans that could truly chill my case devoid of becoming loud or ridiculously pricey , and these are just that. Bought two to place on the leading of my Cooler Master Elite Case. They are quiet, put since they move so substantially air, you can hear the air moving by way of the grill of the case. I plugged them in outdoors my case and WOW, they are truly quiet. If you want a really quiet machine, employing these fans with a limited grill or no grill is an superb alternative. You have to be sort of forceful with the mounting screws to get them started, but as soon as they are, it mounts solidly. The extension cable to hook it up to a 4 pin molex is genuinely lengthy and klunky, but nothing a bunch of zip ties can't repair!

Wonderful fan. Ordered 2 a couple months back for my build. nice and quiet, with still a large quantity of airflow. The power cords are a small brief, you may want to check where your power ports are on your motherboard.

-Moves a substantial quantity of air- Considerably quieter than Antec 120mm Tri-Cool at a comparable speed- Not also loud - Value, though was purchased elsewhere for ů.five/piece Shop about, there are generally deal. If heart is set on these you won't be disappointed. Replaced five fans all with these and the noise levels dropped noticeably. So much so I've currently inadvertently restarted my computer a couple time not realizing it was currently on. So far so very good for these.

This fan moves a lot of air...but here's the ideal portion...its QUIET!!! I spent a lot of time researching the a variety of fans on the market place right now, and right after a few hours of research, everything pointed me toward this fan. 1200 RPM is arguably the excellent speed for somebody who desires it quiet too. If you're in the industry for a 120mm fan, look no further than this guy. Doesn't make a cool jet engine sound when it spools up...oh wait..that's a pro. I have this fan connected to a mobo header, and control it with speedfan. I truly have it shut off when my personal computer is at idle temp, but when I hit the games it spools up to 80%. Any higher than that and it gets a TINY TINY bit louder than i like, but thats only becasue its mounted to my case's side panel which resonates a tiny bit. I am such a fan of my new scythe fan!

Nice fan, was low cost, only a few bucks shipping, Newegg got it out the warehouse and to my door very swiftly as usual. Its quiet (my power provide fan and video card fan easily drown out any noise from this fan). none Does what it advertises, moves a lot of air, doesn't make incredibly substantially noise at all (I can't hear it). No problems installing it.

Very quiet, affordable, and move air properly. Good intake fans than can pull enough air by means of the sides of my closed front door. Not a FDB? Will be replacing additional fans with these. I applied silicon mounts and would recommend to others.

Quiet, move a lot of air, came with 4 pin (molex) to 3pin adapters, look pretty cool. Ordered two, paid Ű.05 for shipping! It came out to just a bit more than ฝ per fan though, so its not all that negative. Good for a media/bedroom pc, considering that they are quiet and don't light up the room with stupid LEDs.

This fan does its job and it does it properly. It moves plenty of air all the though becoming quiet. Performs with a NZXT Sentry two fan controller. Replaced an productive but incredibly loud Silverstone Fan. Id say it is a good replacement. This fan does not have LEDs. The box it came in had Japanese writing on it. Not a con but it created me doubt the products validity. Furthermore, the fan smells like it has been spray painted. The fan I received in the mail had either been blue and painted or was black and had blue paint brush strokes. Makes me wonder. If it had been not the smell of paint and the blue markings, this fan is incredibly powerful and a worthy replacement for loud and obnoxious fans. Would I obtain it once again? I would want to know if the fans are reconditioned and put back on the industry or if the manufactoring process designed the blue marks. If the fan I have is a fluke, then certain, Id purchase yet another two.

I installed five of these in an Antec 1200 case Ɠ front, 2 rear) and I can't hear them AT ALL. Period. My pair of GTX260s, even at idle, drown out any sound they could create.THEY PUSH A TON OF AIR... Comes with a 4-pin motherboard connection and clumsy Molex splice. Not terrible, certainly workable (ok for cable management if you have the space)...but somewhat of a pain.

It moves an obscene amount of air! Given that it's in the back of the case, I can't admire its beauty. Sad face. It's silent sufficient for me and moves a LOT of air out my tight Apevia cube case (which consists of an i7 920 @ 3.33Ghz and a GTX 460 1GB). This fan was the last necessary component in constructing a smaller but potent gaming system that was each cool and silent. The stock Apevia fans were very good but they don't evaluate to the superior air flow provided by the Scythe ones.

It spins and tends to make my create cooler. Not much far more I can ask from a fan. None I'm not a pc specialist, and this portion was applied in the course of my first make. Enthusiasts, ignore what I have to say.

Awesome fans. push a lot of air in much less noise than you believe. note tho they nonetheless produce noise (fixed by a fan controller). i purchased four of these to go into my new CM690 and they rock. The case has so much air going by it now. Sharp fins tho..got a little cut on a finger so watch it now my laptop or computer picks up additional dust lol, but i dont care, i have a friend with a large air compressor. now i go to him for cleaning each three weeks TIP: to boost the life of these fans, take off the sticker in the middle, take off the lil red rubber cap, and squirt in a lil WD-40 inside, then twirl the fan both ways some. the added liquid will support it move easier, longer.

A really great fan than is quite, extremely quiet. I can\'t hear it more than the GPA fan and my case stays much less than 35 at all instances - and that is in an Antec 300 case with a 125W processor. None. All the chinese on the packaging scared me a bit, but every thing is there.

Cons:- Screw holes aren't the size of my case's (Antec Sonata II)- Would've preferred a speed selector instead of a set RPM

Pros:- Quiet relative to the rest of my system- Strong enough to affect temperatures- Cheap, got it for $6
Comment:
A good buy if you just wanna quickly and cheaply lower the temps of your hardware by a degree or two. Very quiet too, I got scared seeing 24dB but after installing I realized either its less than 24dB or the rest of the fans in the case are over 24dB.

Good airflow at very first. I purchased 4 of these fans to replace the fans in my 4-in-3 drive cages. After about a year, they just locked up on me. I didn't understand that the fans weren't operating until it was as well late, I lost 2 striped arrays out of four. Took apart the cages to replace the drives, and identified out the fan wouldn't spin. Going to a different brand and never ever going back.

Very good cost. Excellent brand. None. Was seeking for a thing about as loud as my HDDs. It's nearly best so it doesn't matter that they're not silent.

Moves alot of air. Spins at � RPM. Relatively quiet, substantially quieter than the Antec Tri-cool at the same speed, which moves a lot less air. Immediately after about a month and a half, it started to rattle and squeak and slow down to 900 RPM. Not silent, or totally free. Due to above issue, I took the sticker off, dripped some Added Virgin Olive oil onto the bearing, and spun it, and repeated, and voila, its worked stunning considering that then, with about 2200 hours on it since. I consider Scythe wants to superior seal, or lube the sleeve bearing. But this is a excellent way to bring it back to life if it happens to you.

These replaced some old 75CFM monsters I had that created a ton of noise - regardless of getting about 7CFM much less, they're substantially quieter than the old fans. Nonetheless push a ton of air and the blades and motor style are excellent. May well get some additional as soon as my Antec 300 comes in... Wish they had been typical 4-pin molex for power, because I don't plug the fans into mobo headers. Not a big deal, fans each come with three to 4 pin adapters and they perform fine and don't add added clutter to my case wiring :) Fairly excellent deal general, employing 2 of the 3 fans I bought in my present case, certainly encouraged considering the noise to airflow ratio.

Moves a lot of air. Great design and style3 pin connector Looks fantastic Not substantially negative to say....could have been a couple of bucks more affordable I guess....some may well feel it's too high-priced. The options for related fans are largely LED and I wanted one thing with no LED. This child moves some air and stays extremely quiet. I suggest it.

Great cooling for the price. A small louder than I'd expected. Decent for a side fan.
