Cons: No 3 pin to molex adapter

Pros: Whisper quietIncludes rubber mountsGreat Value
Comment:
Compared to most case fans out there, this one is nice and quiet. Purchased it for $4.99, and happy with my purchase.. As another poster stated the rubber mounting supports are a pain to install. Once they are on they do the job well. With no vibration on the case.Would purchase these again.

Pros: works fine, cheap! on SALE
Comment:
If you are looking for cheap and working fine computer fans, then you are in the right place. Since I am not sure what makes my build so noisy and I dont mind. I think it would be a perfect choice for a budge build or ppl like who want to save money.

Wanted a quiet fan and this product does the job well. Got it for $5 and it's running great. The rubber fan mount is kind of tricky to put on though.

well, these are MUCH quieter than the antc tricools. i had two tricools on lowest setting (3 spd switch), and 3 of these gelids are quieter than them. Very nice! I can't comment on durability yet.

Cons: Fan-controllable, but could not get it to always start-up at 5v.

Pros: Very silentPushes good amount of air when running at max rpmNice black & white color schemeComes with rubber mountsSleeved cables!!!
Comment:
When running at low rpm, it's totally silent. When running at max rpm, you can hear it, but it's still quiet and doesn't have the annoying clicking, buzzing, vibrating sound that most fans do. I can control the fan-speed with my fan-controller, but it sometimes doesn't start-up when my fan-controller is set to minimum, which is 5v. Gotta bump-up the speed and then turn it back to low when I start-up my rig.

Cons: - No 3pin to molex

Pros: - Rubber mounts- Nice design- Quiet
Comment:
Comparing it against my other Yate Loons that were on sale for $1 cheaper than this fan, i'd have to say that i'm a bit disappointed that this fan did not come with the 3pin to molex adapter. Other than that, should do the job just fine.

Comment:
Is definitely quiet, but does not move all that much air.Using it as an exhaust case fan, so it's okay, but as a heatsink fan, I may reconsider.

Cons: not completely silent, still buzzes

Pros: fairly quiet, lots of accessories, good price point
Comment:
Second time I got one of these, they're probably the best silent fan at this price point. They still buzz though, albeit less than Yate and Nexus fans. They look pretty nice and come with a case badge too!

Pros: relatively quite for the amount of air pushed.
Comment:
Works great with my swiftech triple rad in my HAF932. easily the quietest fans ive ever heard, but not anywhere as silent as id like honestly. i went watercooling to be silent more than anything. in my opinion decent airflow considering how quiet they are. helped me alot getting my dustbuster i7 920 GTX260 SLI sound levels under control!

Comment:
It does not pushes a lot of air but you have to keep in mind that this is not the purpose of this fan. It is not a "performance" fan it is a quiet fan and it's filling that bill. It is dead silent.

Quite happy with these fans, I've found them to be very quiet. I like the anti-vibration rubber mounts similar to those than come with Noctua fans. This review was modfied by poster @ 01-17-10 03:50 PM

Cons: Nowhere near as quiet as specs claim

Pros: rubber mounts, quality braided cable covers, sturdy frame, PM under $5
Comment:
While they provide a nice amount of airflow, there is no way these measure at only 20.2 dBA when running at 12v.At 12V the fans are louder & more noticeable than my hard drives which claim dBA figures in the 30-40dBA range, and even when running at 5v they are louder than my Scythe Slipstream 800RPM fan j 12V, and roughly the same noise as a stock Antec TwoCool 120mm fan j 5VOverall, these are decent fans, but they simply don't compare against actual "Silent" fans from the likes of Noctua & Scythe.

Cons: None that I can think of. It does exactly what it says, looks great, and is really, really cheap.

Pros: Extremely quiet, and well made fan. I can't hear a buzz coming from it, only air.Aesthetically, looks great: The ugly tri-color wire is encased in a black mesh tube, and the white fins are very nice looking without all that LED nonesense which I hate. Very high quality fan!
Comment:
This is, in my opinion, the best 120mm silent fan that I've used. Very quiet, great looking (without all that LED garbage), only one power molex (which reduces my case clutter), and it pushes a very nice amount of air for how quiet it is! I would easily choose it over another more expensive model.

Cons: -Can be pricey-Rubber screws may become a hassle

Pros: -Quiet-Adequate cooling-Nice colour scheme
Comment:
I bought these for a quad core gaming system and they are fairly quiet and seem to do their job. The only issues I have is that you need to PM them to get a good price and the rubber screws provided can be a real pain when installing it tight areas without much access.

These fans are great for the price, they are extremely quiet. Although they don't move a lot of air, I use 3 of these in my case and it's good enough to cool the internal environment.

Pros: price, quality, rubber mounts, quiet
Comment:
Very quiet fans, and has included rubber mounts (I believe it's to reduce vibrations). Some might still prefer screw mounts though, because the rubber mounts may be a bit tedious to put on or take off (depends on the person really).For the price paid (less than half), I can't complain.Never tried this brand before, but overall I'm quite satisfied with the purchase, so I would buy another product by GELID again.

Cons: Packaging is initially misleading. The features listed are not all of this fan, but of the different models that are available.

Pros: This fan passed all my expectations. For less than 1/2 the price it is well worth upgrading all your 120mm case fans.
Comment:
Using as an intake fan on the side of cm 690, keeps my graphics card quite a bit cooler. I looked for a quality fan and I found it.

Comment:
For $3, you can't go wrong.These are extremely quiet, barely audible unless you're right up next to it.However, like most others have said, this doesn't move much air compared to the Wing series.Overall a good buy, but I'd buy the Wing series over these any day.

Overall I'm satisfied but I wouldn't pay full price. It's very quiet...I cannot hear it at all and I'm a noise freak. I paid 3.80$ so it was well worth it.
