Oil surface tension and hydrodynamic pumping forces provided by grooves, no friction, extremely quiet

HYDRO-DYNAMIC-BEARING TECHNOLOGY

We defined HDB to Hydro Dynamic Bearing. An oil seal design that has a higher reliability and advantage than conventional fan motor design.
1. High revolution precision, low vibration noise
2. Fluid seal design provide extremely long life span
3. Surface tension effect, runs more smoothly with no friction, extremely quiet
Fluid seal design is achieved through the use of oil surface tension and hydrodynamic pumping forces provided by grooves. Bend area is centralized oil and prevented oil leakage out of motor (oil leakage is main problem of sleeve bearing, short life time) . Friction between shaft and HDB will be down due to herringbone structure reaction(friction between the metal is disadvantage of ball bearing, noise & waste heat problem). So HDB conquer sleeve & ball bearing disadvantage to become more reliable & quiet technology for Top-notch fan. Such design concept is successful and applicative on HDD, and we can see a reliability application in it.

HDB, Ball, & Sleeve comparison

vibration noise mediocre loud quiet

5 out of 5 eggsReliable

Pros: After trying dozens of fans,. found these to be one of the quietest. Puchased multiple of these throughout the years, all of them still work.

Cons: Wish they were quitier. Had to invest in fan controllers to reduce the speed. still no over-heating issue. When running multiple of these, still audible from 4-5 feet. Wish newegg but these on sale more frequently, got them usually around $8-9 range.if you don't mind waiting months at a time to save a few bucks

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and Powerful

Pros: I have four of these in my CM Storm Scout II case. Two on intake and two on top exhaust. They're never at 100% simply because they keep everything cool at much lower speeds. There's no sound to speak of, my DCII video card fans are louder than these (whisper)

Cons: Funny looking power cable

5 out of 5 eggsQUIET POWER

Pros: EXTREMELY quiet. You won't hear it if it's the only fan running. My graphics card makes more noise.
It's also really good with airflow. I don't have much to compare it to, but it hasn't disappointed me yet.

Cons: Not really a con.... but the color is sort of ridiculous and no LED's makes it even more obnoxious. I get it, it's their trademark color, but it looks laughable.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away Cougar Fan

Pros: Creates noise

Cons: Less than 2 months and fan already making noise. What a joke. Better joke, I am still waiting for the rebate, what a rip off. I wouldn't have bought it if it wasn't for the rebate...what a waste of time and money. Look for something else... don't even try like I did.

Other Thoughts: Stay away from this product. Even it is free with rebate, don't waste your time and money.
