5 out of 5 eggsI love these

Pros: I love these things. Adjust the speed to the maximum airflow for the space it occupies.

I lived in a van and ventilated it with these continuously for several years.

Cons: It might be less energy efficient to regulate speed this way.

Comments: Great fan. Moves a decent amount of air on the low setting and i can't even hear it. I had no problem with the resistor. I think that some people just turned it to far. Would recomend to anyone especially for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good little fan

Comments: OK, well you probably have or will read the other reviews here, so I'll try to just stick with my personal experience...I've bought quite a few of these guys. Why? Two reasons...first, they are inexpensive and second, I like the gold grill.

They are quirky little fans. When you crank them up they move a TON of air. As in standing in front of a jet engine....well not that much but a TON nonetheless. And as you would expect, they are loud as H E double hockey sticks.

Fine. So what to do about it??? Well, if you turn them down they still move a lot of air, but are SILENT at 1000RPMs.

My solution....I got one of them there fancy fan controllers and hooked four of them up. This way, my PC is silent and cool 98% of the time. When its time to frag, then I crack up the fan on my HD and get to work.

These fans make for the perfect balance of power and quiet, but it is important for YOU to be in control of that power. So get a cheapo fan controller and you'll be very very pleased.

Also, try to but them on a single channel on your Power Supply...becuase you can get into voltage weirdness if you turn on down and not the the others when they are on separate lines. Keep your voltages clean!

Great fan, in my humble opinion, better than the Stealth fans but a small margin, but they do slightly different things so it's not really a fair comparison.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: I have 6 of these, in 3 computers. One is actually a CPU fan (using a 60mm to 80mm adapter I got at Newegg). I have not lost one CPU yet. The key to the potentiometer deal is to set it and forget it. Like the other reviewer said...CPU hot? turn it up! CPU cool? Lower speed and live in silence. I set them low, and haven't lost a CPU in 3 years of using them.

Here's another tip: Install 3 of these to replace 1 or 2 noisy case fans. The 3, set at low speed (say, one sucker and two blowers), will be quieter than one stock fan at 4,000 rpm.

Here's another tip. For 6 bucks, what do you expect? Gold plated control knobs with imbedded pearls? For the love of Pete...it's only 6 dollars!

I promise you, I have 6 running for 3 years now. I think I got a good return on my investment, and my tiny apartment is quiet with 3 computers running non-stop.

With the money I saved, I bought expensive nearly-silent power supplies to keep the noise level down.

4 out of 5 eggsNice product

Comments: I purchased 2 of these fans. They are as quiet as the zalmans at the same rpm level, but are cheaper and more adjustable.

I've had no problems with the variable resistor. However I did have one fan die (started making an irritating noise so i threw it away) within a sort period. Just a dud I guess. The other fan is working great.

Comments: I was pretty impressed with these fans. I read the reviews about the fragile speed adjusor screw, so when I was adjusting it I was just real careful and there's no problems at all. In reality, once you get your system temp tweaked you won't be re-adjusting it that often anyways, so I don't think it's much of a concern. Time will tell if these fans are good and durable, but initially, they seem like just what the doctor ordered. They are very quiet when set to the lowest speed. If your case holds multiple intake & exhaust fans, fill 'er up. They'll keep your case quiet and cool.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: I've been running with one of these fans as a CPU fan for 2 years or so (and another as an exhaust fan) and have had zero problems with it - including the speed controller. The speed control screw breaks when you use "too much torque" (according to another reviewer)?? I got news for ya - *anything* will break when you use too much torque, that's the definition of "too much torque". The screws in the speed controller in these fans require almost zero force to turn and can easily be adjusted with a fingernail. When they stop turning, you've reached the limit. If you keep trying to turn the screw (assuming you're using a screwdriver), of course you'll break it - don't keep trying to turn it when it stops turning! We're hopefully not children, these are not difficult concepts.

My fans came with markers on the speed control to let me know the RPM - but I don't go by that. Anybody who knows anything about PC's would just be using their motherboard monitoring to determine the true fan RPM. Regardless, there's no reason to be so precise - your CPU is running hot? Turn the fan up. It's running cool? Turn the fan down and live in silence. Again, not difficult. I don't care if the fan is running at 3,254 RPM or 1,839 RPM, I care if my CPU is cool enough and my room quiet enough. This fan fits that bill perfectly.

The sound coming from this fan is not bad even at max speed. It's definitely a noticeable whir at top speed, but it's not the loud rumble of, say, a Thermaltake case fan at the same speed. The Enermax fan whir is almost pleasing, and I have no problems running at max speed when I need to (though I do turn the fans down in the winter, and at low RPM they're nearly silent).

Never had a problem with my case or CPU temps with this fan.

1 out of 5 eggsBOOOOOOO!!!!!

Comments: jUNK! Like a few other ppl, my adjusters stripped out and are no longer stable. Buy the YS Tech fans and mount the adjusters on a plastic 5.25" slot cover. Or better yet, grab a high powered Panaflo and a fan controller. Bottom line: don't buy these till Enermax decides to invest in higher quality adjusters. Plastic screws? WTH is that?

1 out of 5 eggsWorst Fans I have ever used

Comments: Bought 2 Fans. These are the worst fans I have ever used. LOUD at all RPM ranges. Very unreliable. Poor Quality for Enermax!
