Cons: Rubber mounts are hard to install!Need instructions

Pros: SilentThermal sensorhigh CFM!
Comment:
Great fan although the rubber mounts provided are impossible to install... I tried for 30 mins and I gave up and used regular screws. The fans are already silent so no complaints if not using rubber mountsThermal sensors requres you to test it in various locations to ensure you get the best airflow when needed

Cons: - No non-Temperature controlled option

Pros: - Good static pressure- Braided cables- Fairly quiet
Comment:
Great fans for case and radiators. I have 3 of this attached to my XSPC rad and have great static pressure to noise ration. Even running on its max RPM, its fairly quiet.Having a braided cable to improve cable management and aesthetics is a plus. Having a black frame/white blade fans also helps in having a subtle appearance as well.I have 2 sets, (3) PWM and TC) of these fans and an cheaper way to achieve great static pressure if you cant find the Gentle Typhoons AP15.Its a pity, Gelid doesnt offer a non-thermal control option for these fans. I hope they reconsider and adding just a 3pin version of this fans.

Cons: None yet

Pros: Quiet, responsive
Comment:
I had an issue with occasional overheating in an HTPC, and suspected the existing fixed-speed quiet case fan was not moving enough air. I replaced it with the Gelid temperature-sensing fan, and the problem went away. This Gelid fan has settled at 1150 rpm, and now my CPU fan (an older Zalman copper heatsink) never revs up, staying at a quiet 1200 rpm. I like; the new fan is doing exactly what I hoped. Recommended.

Cons: Thermal controlled, difficult to mount with screws.

Pros: Silent, really good color scheme
Comment:
Bought this to replace the stock fan in my case, found out it doesnt like screws, so i had to use the rubber mounting gromits which works fine i guess.It is silent, well against my R3s it is.

Cons: None so far.

Pros: Quiet, very good at moving air, very nice sleeving, great color combo (white blades/black casing), thermal sensor positionable, rubber fan mounts to minimize vibration/noise. Priced very reasonable.
Comment:
I really like these, granted I've only had them for a day but I'm already wishing I had bought at least 3 or 4 more... I already got 3 For sure I'll be switching over my new tower heatsink fan over to a PWM model of the 120mm Silence series fans (mostly to match all of these). So why all the gushing over a fan? lol, price, hardly any noise even at peak rpm's, I like the black case/white blade design, sleeving is pretty nice with barely any cable color bleed through. Rubber mounts included to dampen vibration. A very nice price point, I didn't get these on sale but I still felt as if I got a great deal on them.

It is pushing the air out of my box perfectly I like it and It is a pretty quiet fan. Using it in the back of my computer case to suck out the hot air. good stuff i recommand.

Cons: - Thermal sensor is.. yeah..

Pros: - Look nice in Obsidian 800d- Quiet- Screw less
Comment:
Could do without the thermal sensor as it is an extra cable to deal with and getting 4 of these didn't help. The sensor actually works but I am a cable management freak so I couldn't care less for it.

Pros: Silence (rubber mounting + low rpm)

I buyed this fan to mount it in my Antec Nine Hundred case side panel. While it doesn't have LED light, it is dead silent compared to Antec Tricool stock fans. It is however a bit slow.

Cons: You sacrifice air flow for quietness and vice versa. So nil.

Pros: Easy install and quiet! Push a lot of air.
Comment:
I really like the product. It's a steal when it's discounted. I got it at 6 bucks. I have 3 in my cooler master cm 690 chassis and I am loving it!

Cons: No 3 to 4 pin adapters

Pros: quiet, not as ugly as noctua fans, good price
Comment:
I had one out of 3 that was faulty. The thing just would not spin at all on any fan header. It would just try then stop and try again every 3 seconds or so. I looked at it and saw that it was not seated on the shaft properly. Once pushed down it worked perfectly. So they are excellent fans for the price. Quiet, not too ugly, and not terribly expensive. I do like the noctua fans better but they were also 2.5 times the price and butt ugly to my eyes.

If this fan sucked I'd tell you, but it blows! Liked the screwless mounting and it is noticeably quieter than the fan it replaced.

3-pin power connector fits on standard mobo fan header. Comes with a temp probe that you can stick anywhere in the case to automatically control fan speed.Rubber mounts appear to be good for reducing transference of vibration, however I really thought I was going to rip them off pulling them through the mount holes. I don't think they'll come out of the case without damaging them.I put this in a homemade NAS box with an Antec NSK-1300 mATX cube case and a Zotac Ion motherboard. Because the mobo takes dc power, I had pulled the psu out of the case, leaving a gaping 120mm hole and no internal air movement besides the Ion's tiny cpu/gpu fan, so my hard drives were running >40C. The addition of this fan dropped my hd temps to 26C (active) and 23C (spun down), a huge improvement.I actually ordered this fan by mistake; I was wanting the PWM model, but the TC model works fine.

Cons: Low airflow, but ok considering noise

Pros: Near silent, no vibration, mount included
Comment:
I had to add a fan near the HDD cage on each of my computer to cool it down, those two reduced the temperature alot without doing any noise more. Great buy!, and at the special price, I would pick those up to replace any cheap oem fans.

Cons: NIL

Pros: Appearance I Like! Long MTTF & 5 Yr Warranty. Thermal Diode to place in heatsink somewhere for varied fan speed. Hydro Dynamic Bearing which is as it claims...QUIET! Of course rubber installation grommets incl.
Comment:
I especially like this fan for it's Thermal Sensor that can be tucked into either my CPU's heatsink fins or my Video Cards HS-fins for when I'm feeling Rowdy...I've placed the fan on the rear of my Antec-300 case...when I'm feeling more gentle I simply place the heat diode up in the corner for my "quiet time".Don't get me wrong, when this fans is near full tilt it's roar is hardly heard...LOVE it! Am going to put the Gelid 120mm PWM version of this fan on the side panel of my 300.

I bought these fans to replace the antec tri-cools that came with my antec 900. they were garbage. These fans on the other hand are pretty cool - decent air to noise ratio. They pull a good amount of air thru the front grill.I like the temperature concept its a good idea and seems to work for my 3 fans

Pros: very quietmoves good volume of air
Comment:
It's a very quiet fan.the only thing that might be its weakness is the rubber pin you get to mount the fan, it's not a complete weakness, it's also a strenght. Strenght: keeps fan quieter, Weakness: might break when you wanna take the fan out and maybe replace it or move it somewhere else.Overall, I like Gelid fans, I replaced all my fans in my case with gelid fans, and this was the last one. I ran out of pwm controllers on my mobo, so the thermal control was great. Right now, my desktop is whisper quiet, the loudest is the video card which I'll do something about eventually

Comment:
use it in an Antec P182 to replace the top case fan, just place the sensor in a hot spot and it will react quit quickly, at low rpm it deseaper and at full speed it move some air without being too noisy....but if it goes to full speed it's becaus you need extra cooling so...... trade off is little noise

Cons: -Rubber clips are a pain in the...-External sensor seems kind of hit and miss

Pros: -Very quiet-Inexpensive
Comment:
Bought one these to replace the generic fans that were in my case. Although I added more fans than I had before, my case is quieter than it was before. Go figure. These are great quiet fans, although as far as I can tell, the external sensor doesn't really do anything, except make it impossible to get the fan up to full speed, and the rubber mounting things are annoying to put on.

Added 2 of these to my Coolermaster C690 case and I can hardly hear them. The machine is whisper quiet now. Just a slight hum. I like the idea of the rubber mounts but they could break if pulled too hard. but love the way they work!

Comment:
Replaced the 2 stock fans on the front and back of my CM690 with 2 of these. I also added a 3rd to the bottom of the case, which left 1 stock fan on the side panel. Airflow is very good considering the fan speed. These have yet to ramp up over 900RPM yet and the system is very cool, but also VERY quiet. The only fans I can hear on the system is the Scythe fan I have on my TRUE 120, and the side panel fan. These fans you can barely hear, if you can hear them at all.
