Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm Fan
Very Good
Below Average
Rating: 9.62/10

Review Date: 12/26/13
Cons: $$$

Pros: Great quality. Moderately quiet.
At first I bought 2 of these for my water cooled pc. Was so impressed that I bought 4 more. Now I understand why some people like them so much especially for water cooling. They push a lot of air through my rads. I tuned them with Speedfan to run u 600 RPM when the PC has a low use and u 1100 on load. Quiet even on load.

Cons: None at all

Pros: Amazing and super quiet
I just went and grabbed these fans today. OMG are they so amazing. I use them to replace the turbines supplied by Corsair for the H80i and I am now at peace since I can't hear anything in my PC. I plan on ordering more for my rads when they get here. Top dollar for top performance. Cheers!

Cons: Unsleeved cable

Pros: Near silent at full speed.
The sound to noise ratio for these fans is amazing. The only downside for me is that the cables are unsleeved, but I suppose anyone that truely cares has sleeving and heatshrink handy. The corners are a bit weird though; for certain fan clips you may need to remove some of the plastic.

Review Date: 12/22/12
Cons: It's quietness was overhyped.

Pros: Moves lots of air. Relatively quiet.
I bought these fans because I wanted quiet fans that still performed well. From what I read online people made it seem like these would be super silent fans. That is definately not the case. However, considering what speeds they are spinning at and the amount of air they are moving it is still an impressive noise level. The noise to performance ratio is still outstanding, compared to previous experiences.

Cons: none

Pros: moves lots of air and quiet
Great fan for the price considering it moves a lot of air and its quiet. Its great when used as a case fan or heat sink fan.

Review Date: 12/02/12
Cons: -Certaines personnes peuvent trouver ca plus bruyant

Pros: -Silencieux (pour cette vitesse)-Haut CFM-Déplace beaucoup d'air
Le ratio bruit et performance est excellent pour cette fan, j'en ai acheté 2 pour mettre sur mon corsair h100i, tout marche à la perfection.

Review Date: 11/15/12
Cons: - Very ugly wiring.- Closed screw holes.- No PWM versions.

Pros: - Surprisingly quiet.- Excellent air flow.- Good static pressure.- Solid build, long life.
I just purchased six of these, three to go in my case and three to go in another. I can't believe how quiet they are running at the full 12 volts. Not silent by any means, unless you have some really fantastic sound proofing in your case, but way quieter than one would expect from 1850 RPM fans of this size. The only major complaint I have is the wiring which do not have any sleeving. Considering the price, they could have at least have used ribbon style of wiring like most good fans have instead of three separate individual wires. I had to braid mine to keep them from getting into places they shouldn't. Anyways airflow is great and temperatures went down significantly with these (ambient temp hasn't changed). Will definitely be buying more of these down the road. Definitely the best 120mm fans I've ever purchased.

Review Date: 10/26/12
Cons: Dead zone.

Pros: Excellent static pressure while maintaining a low noise with no humming. Bearing is made to last alot longer compared to ceramic bearings and other oem crap brands like Sunon and Delta
This is supposed to be one of the best static pressure optimized fans out there, although it comes at a hefty price I would recommend putting 2 of these in a restrictive heatsink or radiator. Grab a bundle deal of these here for a few dollars off.

Review Date: 10/02/12
Cons: Annoying to mount to a rad

Pros: SilentFantastic static pressureBetter looking than noctua
I bought these without first initially believing all the hype about them. After weeks of research and digging up reviews in foreign languages(found it difficult to find comparisons to fans I've handled before)I figured it was time to make the leap and bought 3 to fit into my fractal R3. when used with a fan controller they scale significantly better in terms of air/noise than the preinstalled fractal 120mm fans and can in fact push more air while being quieter than them. I also found when installing one on my coolit eco ALC cooler to replace my eye sore noctua NF-p12 it seemed to do a slightlly better job of pushing air through the rad while doing it more quietly(marginally so however).Overall fantastic fan that should be standard in every computer that has at least some sort of fan control. My only complaint is mounting these to rads as the screws can be hard to come by.To save future buyers some time for coolit and corsair all in one setups the require 30mm 6/32 machined screws.

Review Date: 08/18/12
Cons: Loud at highest speed. Though pretty much all fans will be loud at 1850rpm.

Pros: Quiet, moves a lot of air.
Currently using 2 for my H100. Really quiet and i can feel a lot of air being exhausted. Does a great job.

Review Date: 07/06/12
Cons: - Expensive.- Non-PWM.

Pros: - Quiet.- Excellent radiator fan.- Pushes a lot of air.
Picked mine up at a surprise 2xGentle Typhoon 1850rpm bundle sale for $20.It's currently attached to a Corsair H80 in push-pull config. Even through the radiator I can feel a significant amount of air coming through. It's quiet when idle, but at 1850rpm it is audible.A fan controller is also recommended for optimum control.All in all, excellent fan and I'm looking to replace rest of the fans in my P280 with either the GT 1850rpm or 1450rpm models.

Review Date: 07/01/12
Cons: Loud when they are at full speed. Price. After I bought them the price went down-.-

Pros: Moves a lot of air. I can feel it with my hands. Spins fast. Double ball bearing.
Using them as exhaust for my case. I like the color of these fans. They are quite when you turn them down a bit.

Review Date: 06/17/12
Cons: Gray fan? Not sleeved 3pin?

Pros: Performance, Quiet (for the air it pulls), Solid, Quality build
The best fans I could've bought for my Hyper 212 EVO (push/pull). The temperature of the cpu went down by 7C at load!The only little cons I have is in regard of aesthetics... For the price, a sleeved cable would've been better. As for the color, I won't go there since it's preference and some companies do like "odd" colors.Overall, one of the best fan I got for cpu cooling!

Review Date: 06/14/12
Cons: - not silent enough- non-PWM

Pros: - silent-ish- better looking than Noctuas- move more air than Noctuas
I was using Noctua NF-F12's on my H80 radiator and they had an annoying whine at higher RPMs (starting at around 675 RPM) and I've read good reviews of the Scythe Gentle Typhoons so I bought these to try. At the same RPM, they are about as silent as the Noctuas, but they definitely move more air. One problem I had with these fans however is that since they are non-PWM fans, they don't play with the Asus Fan Xpert software on my computer so I had to plug them on another fan header than the CPU header. Long story short, so far I wasn't able to lower the RPM to around 600 and at the current 1000 RPM they are not exactly quiet. At least they don't have the annoying whine at high RPM that I experienced with my Noctuas.

Review Date: 06/01/12
Cons: - Expensive

Pros: - Powerful, good CFM, SP, dB ratings.- Japanese engineering FTW- Long life DDB.
BEST FANS EVAR. Multipurpose as a case fan or as a radiator fan. It performs well in all situations.

Review Date: 05/31/12
Cons: none

Pros: quiet, powerful
i use these fans only. They last a long time and move alot of airLove them

Review Date: 05/26/12
Cons: -Expensive if not on sale-Newer motherboards support 4 pins so you might not be getting the most out of this fan since it's a 3 pin.

Pros: -Relatively Silent for the amount of airflow it provides.-Easy to Install-Comes with screws, 3 pin to molex converters
Definitely one of the best 120mm case fans/CPU fans out there. I would suggest stocking these up or buying extra if these ever go on sale.

Review Date: 05/09/12
Cons: NONE!

Pros: Moves airReally quietLOVE THEM!
Sleeved them and they look great and so quiet!

Review Date: 05/02/12
Cons: -Got 2 faulty fans at the same time (had no air flow, and the fan was very resistive to spinning-Expensive if not on sale-Cables are colorful and unsleeved for the high price

Pros: -Highly regarded fan in the pc community-Pretty quiet but not dead quiet-Good static airflow for water cooling radiators
-Great fans (exluding the 2 defective ones).-Highly regarded as one of the best fans in general, particularly for radiators

Review Date: 04/30/12
Cons: no real cons... it makes some noise?

Pros: Pushes alot of air
great fans... they are the best bang for the air if that makes sense. I used to be a Noctua person but they are just quiet and do not push much air at all. These fans are pretty quiet and you can feel the air its pushing! my temps lowers a couple degrees

Review Date: 04/23/12
Cons: -unsleeved cables-expensive

Pros: -quiet-they move air!
In my mind these are the best 120mm fans for air moved/noise. I just tried the Noctua NF-F12 fans but they do not measure up to the GT's, much less airflow. I would love to try the 3000 rpm version of the GT,s but they are not in stock.

Review Date: 04/22/12
Cons: - a bit expensive (luckily I got them for a smokin' deal!)- not exactly pretty, but they certainly do the job!

Pros: - quiet- move a LOT of air for the noise!- solid! (I was surprised at the weight of them! I guess that means they weren't built cheap!)
I originally bought two at an awesome deal (four more on order)! I was really impressed with the amount of air the move for so little noise! I have some other Scythes in my case as case fans running around 1300RPM making about the same noise but not moving anywhere near as much air. The only other fans that moved as much air that I've had in this case, was my tricools, and they made a lot more noise while doing so.

Review Date: 04/18/12
Cons: color scheme, price

Pros: Good performance, sturdy design
i am running these in Push Pull for my H100 cooler and temp/noise ratio is noticeably better than stock fans. Though for a regular price of $20.98/each seems to be a little overboard, i picked these up for 12.99 each on sale.

Review Date: 04/16/12
Cons: For the price it could of been sleeved.

Pros: Very quiet at full speedSuperb static pressure
Bought two of these for my CPU cooler and they run very quiet at full speed can barley hear them and push a very good amount of air. These fans are awesome for CPU fans and case fans also i will buy more near future.

Review Date: 04/14/12
Cons: -None so far!

Pros: - Silent- Massive airflow- Easy to install- No defect on arrival
I paired 2 of those on my new heatsink, a Corsair H80 on a i7-920 (OC to 3750 mhz) / Asus P6T mobo. My CPU temperatures were reaching 55 celsius idle / 90 celsius load before the install.After the install of the new heatsink, the CPU temperatures are now: 35 idle / 62 load.I recommend that fan for anyone wanting to overclock!
