5 out of 5 eggsworks for me

Pros: does what it says it is supposed to do. Mine was not as loud as other's reviews say. it does not move a lot of air, but it does move some, and I have it next to my video card to keep it cool and still no problems.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I've had mine almost a year now and it is still running just as the day I got it!

1 out of 5 eggsjunk

Pros: its a pci slot fan

Cons: This thing looks cheap feels cheap is cheap doesn't move much air at all and after only about five min of running I guess the vibration of the fan caused one of the power leads to break off.

Other Thoughts: I know it has a cheap price U get what U pay for this part is practically useless don't put your money here.

2 out of 5 eggsDead

Pros: worked awesome for a month... great air flow.

Cons: Died within a month. Started grinding and went to look at it and it died. Soemtimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. When it does, its loud and doesn't spin fast (10-20 rpm's)

Other Thoughts: Kinda mad that i wasted that money, but since I'm getting a new case with a 140mm and 80mm on the side panel, its ok.. otherwise i would be pretty mad.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat exhaust fan

Pros: Its perfect for venting out the heat exerted from my video card.

Cons: Wish I had a UV light so it would glow!

Other Thoughts: Its good if you have any wind tunnels in your computer.

4 out of 5 eggsNice, Decent, Nothing Spectacular

Pros: Well this thing blows air. It's blue, it does its job. It has a low reaction to Neon lights, no clue about UV though.

Cons: Someone mentioned that these have plastic bearings. I checked and found metals ones in mine. *lift up the sticker* On the other hand it has a plastic housing and a metal core form what I saw, unless it has a metal sleeve somewhere in there.

Other Thoughts: It's had to give an item like this a perfect overal rating as it's function is pretty straightforward. The product its self is good and I am hopinh it lasts me the year... after which I probably would have upgraded to something more.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Fan

Pros: Convenient for AGP or PCI-E cards, moves a good ammount of air, quiet, easy to clean.

Cons: I bought it for $xx at T.x., hence why i never shop there anymore! Not really UV-Reactive, though I don't have any real UV lights in my rig.

Other Thoughts: For $x, it's nice for what it does. Mount it so you have one PCI slot between your GPU and the fan so you have some room to pull air through or you really won't get any airflow. Make sure you clean it monthly, you won't believe how much dust gets clogged in it.

3 out of 5 eggsVery strange design

Pros: The fan isnt that bad, its under my AGP which is a passive cooling card this keeps it very cool. The fan itself isnt what you would ever expect, there is no blades, its like those old wooden water generator things that the water pushed around and they are tall. They have rungs that pull the air in, then I guess it ejects it through the back.

Cons: It doesnt blow too much air, its not very UV or whatever it claimed. Its not loud but its louder than it puts out air (if that makes sense, its too loud for its small air output)

Other Thoughts: I like it even though it doesnt do much, its quieter than my other fans even though its not working as strong as it could. The design is really strange I never would have expected it in a fan! Its cool, but if you need your PCI or AGP (or pci-e) actually cooled spend a few more bucks.

2 out of 5 eggsNot very powerful

Pros: No noise at all and connectible through PCI slot. It's Blue.

Cons: Almost powerful enough to make up for the heat that the motor makes.
