Comment:
Moves tons of air - a lot much more than the Tri-cool fans on my antec 900. Solid feel, pretty packaging, reliable brand. Also has straightforward to access lube point under sticker. Dropped general method, VGA and even CPU dropped by a couple degreees centigrade. It is louder than my other fans, but it's a steady white noise so seriously not that bad.

Ultra Quite appears to push a good quantity of air. Not sure if it lives up to it's specs as far as air flow, but it does push a good quantity.

Had 2 of these in my old system for 3 years, just bought 2 more for my new case to go with the old ones. These are by far the best fans i have used. A good balance of airflow and noise.

+ Cost+ Variable speed+ Rather (seriously really)+ Good paired with Scythe fan controller KM-02+ Moves a lot of air none You may well feel that Ű.99 for a 120mm fan is a lot of funds, nevertheless getting purchased four of these for my Cool Master 690 case, I can say that the investment helped lessen my technique temps by five degrees overall even though remaining darn close to silent. Recommending these to any person searching for a solid, quite and effective fan.

Quiet! Ordered two and they moves plenty of air in my XBlade case. Old 120 mm fans were screamers. Have to look at the power and/or HDD lights to tell the pc is on now. None! What's to say. They made a screamer personal computer into a incredibly quiet laptop or computer that stays cool.

Sucks air in one side, blows it out quietly and rapidly on the other. Has several connectors. Sturdy create. 1 day they will wear out and I'll be forced to buy far more. Good fans make for good cooling!

It fit, it functions, it's not loud. Believed it would move a lot more air. My Antec's upper vertical case fan died, bought this to replace. Not as very good at the original fans that came with the case, but it works.

I bought 3 of these fans for two intake and one outtake in my case. They blow a great bit much more air than my previous SlienX and AeroCool fans. They come with a 4 pin molex adapter that has a plug for the motherboard. This is a incredibly good function considering that you can take away the fan for cleaning or replacing then you can just plug it correct back in. They aren't that quiet compared to slower moving fans but they blow a lot of air compared to other 120mm fans. With headphones on you can barely hear them. My GTX 480 at 70% fan speed is way louder. So don't be worried about loudness. If you want more air flow and don't care about noise then I would suggest obtaining the same fan sort that has higher RPM's.

-Quiet as avdvertised-Simple install-Native 3pin for MB equals cleaner look and much less wires-Fantastic for the cost -I wish it flowed a little bit additional For the income I can't envision purchasing a better fan. It flows virtually as considerably as my Antecs on the medium setting but with less noise. Serves it's purpose as a lower speed near silent fan.

silent fan, pushes enough air to maintain heat down. silent fan, it's not right away apparent when the fan stops turning. I had this fan installed in my technique for much less than a year when it stopped operating. I didn't understand it had died until I checked the temperature on my technique. It comes with a 2 year warranty, but why would I want one more one?

Not an exaggeration, this fan is precisely what a 120mm case fan needs to be: efficient, good cost, quiet, moves a lot of air, effortless install, and quality construction Absolutely nothing to complain about, but I've heard mixed feelings from friends about other Scythe items. So far she looks excellent and doesn't make a peep in my mini-tower Will be purchasing these guys for my next full tower build. I would have purchased five additional but my case only handles 1

I put 4 of these into a Coolermaster Centurion case, and I can barely hear them, though they're keeping my case good and cool. They're not ball bearing fans, so their lifespans may possibly be shortened a bit, but at this price point it doesn't truly matter. Newegg should sell a wider selection of fan filters; I hate getting to go somewhere else to obtain pc gear.

Comment:
Fan moves a lot of air, audible in a silent room, but my room normally has a fan going anyways so no major deal. Employing as an intake fan in my Gigabyte Sumo 4112 and produced a huge improvement. I at 1st when I plugged it in to the case fan header, all 3 case fans plug into one header and from that header into a single fan plug on the mobo, it was only spinning at 500 rpm's. I routed a four pin cable up to the front and plugged the fan into that using the included adapter and then it was spinning at the appropriate speed. I probably could have performed that to the stock fan, but didn't know that at the time and a different fan wont hurt my case. ŭ.99 shipping on this appears a little ridiculous to me, but I'd rather get it here exactly where I know that I wont get abused.

Picked this fan up on sale as I couldn't pass on the sale price. For moving air and cooling off my PC it does an excellent job. Appropriate now I have three case fans for my there all at present running at about 1200 RPM, the primary reason I wanted this one was to replace a case fan that had gotten to loud. Brand new I installed this and its already louder than the fan I wanted to replace. All in all stay away if your seeking for something that quiet.I read that it was suppose to be about 24.00 dBA at 1200 RPM, the dilemma is that its about 40. dBA and is a lot louder than my previous fan. For me it will be a waste of money because I wanted to get a fan that could push a superior amount of air without becoming to loud, sadly I got stuck with this loud fan and am incredibly disappointed. If you want a low cost fan that moves air and don't care about noise pick this up.

Quiet fan, lasts a lengthy time, moves a very good amount of air for the speed and noise None I've had this fan for over two years. In that time, all the Antec fans my case came with have gone bad by either freezing up or making rattling noises. This guy is nonetheless operating powerful and is nonetheless quiet.

I use this in an Aerocool M40 SFF case as the sole intake fan and it keeps it additional cool!. It's quite quiet, you have to put your head appropriate up to the front of the Case to even hear it and it pushes practically 70CFM of air!!! Sleeved Cables would have been good but it doesent take away from the efficiency of the fan.

The air flow to noise ratio is quite good. The ideal fan for Intake/Exhaust.Quit complaining about it becoming loud; it's 120mm and produces 68.54 CFM, of course it's going to be loud. I don't complain about Airplanes getting loud because they're going 700mph. The only con about these fans, other than their two-three year typical life expectancy; the number of individuals who waste review space complaining about their noise level.Getting LOUD isn't a Con if it's moving air; it's a Side Affect. No where on the package, or in the description does it say "silent, silence, silencio, quiet, whisper, church mice"If you care sufficient about your components to keep them as cool as doable, you'll deal with the noise.

Quiet. Great CFM:dBA ratio, in particular at this cost. Installed two (intake & exhaust) in an Antec Sonata and can barely hear them from 3'. Does not come with fan grill. Don't genuinely care as I installed these internally, but if it makes a distinction to you, be aware. This is my initially Scythe fan but it positive won't be my last. Applied this to replace a 120x120x38 Panaflo, pushes the same quantity of air (according to my quite scientific detection approach of sticking my hand behind the exhaust to really feel it) at ӭǚ the noise. Temps stayed the identical across the board, possibly even shaved a C or two (they had been already sufficiently cool, so receiving the case quieter was my primary objective). Enjoy these fans.

Comment:
Quiet enough two out of 3 broke inside a year. They really feel like they're moving air around rather then pulling air via them. I purchased 3 of these fans to replace my case fans for the rear, side, and front of the case all facing outward with yet another 80mm fan facing inward. My hardware began overheating and I didn't know why so I looked in my case and located that my rear and front fan had seized up. I'm now buying three new fans from another manufacture so I can finally keep the side of my case attached.
