ARCTIC COOLING ACF12PWM 120mm Case Fan - Retail
Very Good
Below Average
Rating: 8.97/10

Review Date: 06/09/12
Cons: Rien à signaler.

Pros: Très bon prix.Très silencieux.Bon manufacturier.Connecteur 4 pins PWM.Bon debit d'air.
J'ai acheté ce ventilateur pour remplacer le ventilateur frontale de 120mm de mon boitier Fractal Design qui était trop bruit. Le débit d'air est assez bon et ce ventilateur est très silencieux même en l'utilisant comme ventilateur frontal. Un bon achat à recommander.

Review Date: 06/07/12
Cons: Wires are a bit short

Pros: Cheap, Quiet, can plug up to 5 of these fans together off one case fan MB port
Nothing fancy but it does what it's suppose to quietly. One limitation is its wire length. While for most computer-cases they will be fine, for a large case you might run into problems, especially if you plan on hooking more then one fan together.

Cons: doesn't blow much through heat fins.

Pros: quiet, looks nice.
I said it doesn't blow much through the heat fins. but it still keeps my OC 2600k below 71c using the Corsair A50.

Cons: the cord to bridge to the CPU fan controller is short

Pros: great for the price, quiet enough, excellent idea with the bridge to the CPU fan controller
Another reviewer said this can only be used as an exhaust. That's not true at all, I built a system with it as the front case fan and it worked perfectly fine.The fan is quiet enough and was much quieter than the stock exhaust fan in the budget case.The best surprise with this product was that it came with a system to clone the CPU fan controller's speed regulation so that this fan ramps up in tandem with the CPU fan. This is perfect for a budget build or HTPC where you don't have many case fans and the CPU computer mostly operates at idle speed and low usage. The downside is that the cord is quite short and barely reached to the CPU fan header in the small (but still regular ATX) case that I used. I had to put the cord all the way out of the cable management channels along the fan edges to get it to reach. The cord is probably too short for many cases, but it would still likely reach for the rear/top/side fan positions. If it doesn't reach you can still operate it with another non-controlled fan header or the 4-pin molex from the power supply.

Cons: PWN Module wires are stringy, they could be streamed together

Pros: More than one PWM fan can be connectedQuietSufficient Air Flow
I ordered 4 of these things to do a push pull on my CoolIt Eco c240, much quieter and the temps stay reasonably low, highest temp on my AM3 955 4GHz was 45 using OCCT, avg was around 40-43c. If you are looking for a decent PWM fan that enables you to hook up more than one at a time, this is a good one

Review Date: 08/03/11
Cons: None yet

Pros: QuietPush a decent amount of airLook goodAwesome price
I bought 10 of these for push pull on 2 rads. They are decently quiet and push a fair amount of air considering. They look great mounted on my rads. As mentioned in another review the cables are short. I however took the cables and extended them myself. Voided warranty but really they are $5 fans. Not really worried about warranty. The only issue I have so far is one of them is rattling a little. It could just be not tight enough against the rad or something simple. With only 1 of the 10 making the noise it is hard to narrow down which one. Either way it is hard to hear unless I put my ear close to my case. So even if I do nothing it will still be okay. Overall great quality fan for the price. Hopefully these last a few years before I have to replace them.

Review Date: 03/31/11
Cons: Flimsy + short power cables

Pros: Quiet, Cheap
I'm actually quite displeased with these fans. The cables are so short and don't have a molex connectory, I couldn't run them anywhere except for at the back of the case near the CPU fan connector. This meant that I had to move existing case fans around so that I could use these. I did want to plug them into the CPU fan connector, but I wanted to use them to cool the hard drive array in my NAS. They wouldn't reach from the front of the case to the CPU fan connector (about 3 inches too short). I had to use one on the side of the case and one at the back. Plus, they are just single strand 20-24AWG wires so I worry about breaking them.

Review Date: 02/09/11
Cons: AC didn't include the 3pin to 4pin Molex adapter that most fan makers provide free of charge

Pros: Value, Quiet, Decent Air Flow, ability to daisy chain with other fans
Bought this as a front case fan on a new ANTEC 300 Gaming Case. Works well provides enough air flow to keep my HD's cool, I just with Ac would have provided a 3in to 4 molex cable since some of us don't plan on plugging it into the mobo or a Fan controller.

Review Date: 11/09/10
Cons: Can't do intake

Pros: QuietGood airflowPWM
I'm pleased with it and I'm pretty much just re-enforcing what other reviewers have said. I plan to buy more for the system I'm currently helping build.

Review Date: 07/05/10
Cons: n/a

Pros: Extremely quietPWM
This fan is excellent. The no-shroud design makes it very quiet and the daisy chaining feature saves a fan header on the mainboard...as long as you are using another PWM fan.

Review Date: 05/22/10
Cons: Can only mount it as an exhaust fan, unless you zip tie it on backwards like me.

Pros: Good airflow, quiet, and PWN.
Good airflow, quiet, and the PWN makes even better. But the coolest feature is the PWN 4-pin splitter, so you can plug two of these fans into one PWN 4-pin port on your mobo.

Review Date: 04/14/10
Cons: Taller than standard 120mm fans. Can be only be mounted in one direction (exhaust mainly).

Pros: Quiet and 4 pin socket. Price ($3.50 on sale).
Mounted 3 of these in my Coolermaster CM690 (rear exhaust and 2 top exhaust). They work great. Since they are 4 pin connections, I linked them with my cpu fan. They run at 400 rpm during cpu idle and 1000rpm at full cpu load.Since they are taller than standard fans, it was a tight fit installing them near my cpu heatsink.

Review Date: 09/27/09
Cons: -Exhaust Only

Pros: -Airflow-Quiet-Speed Control
This fan works as an exhaust fan only. But it does it's job quite well. It is quiet, and moves a lot of air, also has connections to allow the speed to be controlled which is a bonus. Looks good as well if that may matter to some people.

Review Date: 09/27/09
Cons: -if only they had a 80mm anti-vibration version to use as an intake for my case

Pros: -moves a lot of air-very quiet
This fan was a very good replacement for my 120mm Cooler Master low speed fan on my Centurion 5 case.My case is in a tight spot in my desk where the side panel has very little room to breath. The CFM from this fan helps to overcome that.If you're looking for a replacement, try this one out.

Review Date: 05/25/09
Cons: only can be used for exhaust.

Pros: Very quiet, no vibrations. looks good.
These are great fans. They don't cost much, they are quiet, there is no vibration and they look cool. The only downside is they can only be used for exhaust.

Review Date: 02/28/09
Cons: Looks Really Cheap

Pros: InexpensiveDoes The Job
Works fine. Just make sure you put it in a part of your case where it's not visible as it's uglycheap.

Review Date: 02/24/09
Cons: It's not available anymore? Thanks a lot, NCIX... >.>

Pros: Best fan ever for the price! Read on to the summary!
Awesome fan for the price, especially after price match! Anti vibration is an extra. This thing can really move air! Too bad I only got one with my order, should have got 2. Unfortunately, it's not available anymore >.> NCIX, could you please order some more of these things? I need to throw out the fan that came with my case and replace then all with theseIt's silent, and if you press on the fan, it feels like it's on suspension, just a bit better quality than the ones on my dad's car.

Review Date: 12/14/08
Cons: Can't really feel the CFMUncontrollable from Speedfan on my board

Pros: Rubber mountingAdvertised high CFMLooks good
Got a EP35-DS3L, plugged it into PWM and it works. I have it stuck to the case panel rather than the back, but for some reason I can't really feel the advertised 56CFM. My power supply puts out more air than this. Plus with the way I got it, I can't control it from Speedfan - though that's most likely my own issue. Looking forward to use this on a Xigmatek 1238 cooler sometime.

Review Date: 10/21/08
Cons: Fan direction cannot be switched

Pros: Great cheap fan, nice and quiet
I originally bought this for my front case fan but didn't know it couldn't switch directions. So I switched it with my back fan and put that in the front and it is working good. You cannot hear it further then a meter away so it works out nicely and keeps the temperature down.

Review Date: 09/18/08
Cons: None that I have found

Pros: Quiet, PWM control, price
Excellent quiet fan with pwm control.. as usual Arctic-Cooling has done it right. Not only does it move a good volume of air it's whisper quiet.. easy to install and even includes the screws for installation (sadly not black coated). Simply put as w/other AC fans it's a winner.

Review Date: 09/12/08
Cons: I would check the air draw that this could do before purchasing for a gaming PC that needs lots of heat dissipation.

Pros: The fan speed can me autoadjusted.The price is extremely reasonable.
I purchased this to replace my stock case fan so that I could have my motherboard auto adjust the speed according to the measuared temperature. This works well with my HTPC since it keeps it quiet and cool for my purposes. Price is right too.

Review Date: 08/15/08
Cons: does not support TRUE

Pros: Silent, Cheap
Pretty good fan overall for the price. Got three of them and they make less noise than my graphic card alone... need to silent here tought :P

Review Date: 08/09/08
Cons: not completly compatible with watercooling rads

Pros: quietrubber mounts
Excellent fans, go download speedfan and you can control the fans right on your desktop! or set it up to auto adjust according to the temps you tell it to. they even have rubber in the frame so they are dead silent unless u set them to 100% then you hear the incredible air flow. they need to be slightly modded to use them for a rad though

Review Date: 08/05/08
Cons: hard to mount on cooler

Pros: Good movement... quiet.
not compatible with TRUE.. disappointed... only good as a case fan. moves a decent amount of air though.
