Vantech's Tornado TD8038H 80mm black case fan is a powerful cooling solution for today's desktop computers. The dual ball-bearing design extends the life span of the fan and keeps it spinning at 5,700rpm. It easily installs in a wide variety of desktop cases and yet is capable of pushing more than three times the air than a standard 80mm case fan—whether it's used to pull cool air into your system or push hot air out.

The fan can connect to your motherboard's standard 3-pin fan connector for power or the optional 4-pin cable allows you to connect this fan to your power supply. Perfect for gamers and overclockers, the Vantec Tornado Case Fan is a no-compromise solution to overheated computer woes.

  • newegg High Performance Operating at 5700 RPM, this 80mm fan delivers an air flow of up to 84.1 CFM for near peerless heat dissipation!
  • newegg Custom-Made Cable for Fan RPM Detection With the custom-made fan RPM detection cable, monitor fan spindle speeds in the motherboard BIOS and system health software.

3 out of 5 eggsGood quality, too noisy

Pros: Good quality, lifetime guarantee, effective.
Therefore, it could be a good choice in some situations

Cons: Many people won't want to be in the same room with this fan for an extended period, at least not regularly. So not a good choice for many people. The noise is similar to that of my vacuum cleaner, perhaps slightly softer. Also similar to my 20 inch three speed box fan on the highest speed, but higher pitched.

Other Thoughts: Before buying, try the following test for a few days: whenever you turn on your computer, also turn on your vacuum cleaner, leaving it on as long as the computer is on. If that noise bothers you, then find a quieter fan.
At first, I thought I could tolerate the noise by using earplugs, but finally decided to return it. Everyone is different, but here's when the noise bothered me most: (1) when sitting at the computer for an extended period; (2) sometime I play music on the computer while not sitting at my desk (couldn't enjoy the music); and (3) sometimes I leave the computer on while doing something else in my apartment (didn't like to constant vacuum-cleaner sound).

5 out of 5 eggsSUPERFAN!!!

Pros: moves air beyond belief !! my rig stays between 15 to 20 degrees cooler on idle for extended periods of time. i have an older custom system in a HP 6000 case. i use this fan on my stock heatsink with a 125W amd quad core. my case fan is the 92mm one. absolutely no complaints about my cooling. system temp. at 27C and CPU temp. at 32C.kudos for that!!!!!

Cons: noisy fans. about half as loud as a vacuum cleaner. and thats because i have 2 of them thats the price you pay for great cooling. its not vantec's fault for the that. sometimes you have to make sacrifices for quality cooling. if you like a quiet computer, this fan is not for you.

Other Thoughts: i am getting a speed controller to turn up or down at my choosing. sometimes they do get on my nerves being noisy.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat

Pros: lots of airflow.
keeps my a10 6800k frosty even in hot Louisiana summer without A/C.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: sure they make noise, but if you live in the deep south and don't have airconditioning you learn to live with noisy computers.

5 out of 5 eggsThe 80mm fan of 80mm fans

Pros: Pushes some serious air, even when running at lower RPMs.

Cons: Sounds like a vacuum cleaner when running at full tilt. Also, it needs a Molex to 3-pin adapter to work with regular fan controllers.

Other Thoughts: When reigned in with a decent fan controller this fan not only runs relatively quiet but still manages to push air better than some of the other fans I've dealt with. I use it to exhaust air out of the top of my case and I can't be happier with the difference this one has over the Rosewill I was using before. Compared to the Vantec, that Rosewill (which was rated at about 33 cfm) is nothing more than a waste of space.

5 out of 5 eggsTORNADO WINDS AND VACUUM SOUNDS

Pros: One of the best 80mm fans I have ever owned, when wanting strong, high pressure cooling for a computer. I say again, not just high speed, but, high blowing pressure, and powerful cooling capability. Pack a case full of these and set some OC records.

Cons: NOT really a con, but.... Thicker than normal 80mm case fans. I sadly could not fit in a few places I wanted to use it, due to thickness.

If you put in a computer that is located in a quiet room/area, be ready for the vacuum cleaner / jet fighter-like sound it makes. I was aware of the sound up front, so not an issue for me.

Other Thoughts: Be careful if you have anything lose, or, that could get loose in your case. I thought I had other case fan cables secure, and this thing blew them loose, just to show you what kind of strength this fan has!!

3 out of 5 eggsLOUD! But still going strong

Pros: Long lasting--- bought 9/18/2011 still works as of today 7/1/2014

Cons: SO LOUD it gets old after a few weeks!

Other Thoughts: Bought fan Sept 2011 and have been using it ever since (today is 7/1/2014) But after having this fan for so long I can't take the loudness of it anymore! Now that I have a newborn I need to hear her in the bedroom right next to my computer room so the fan has got to go!

3 out of 5 eggsToo loud even for industry

Pros: Moves a lot of air.

Cons: Too loud.

Other Thoughts: Thought it would be OK since we were installing in rack mount systems in loud industrial lab areas but they are too loud even for that. They are louder than nearby cooling compressors and can be heard several rooms away (with doors open).

3 out of 5 eggsToo loud to use

Pros: Definitely moves a lot of air - if that's all you need then go for it.

Cons: It is WAY too loud to use in a personal computer. Originally mine was installed in the back of a case which was being used in an entertainment cabinet - even that didn't dull the noise down enough to use.

Other Thoughts: Would be great in a server or tucked away in an used room.
