When it absolutely has to be cool, nothing beats the Vantec Tornado Case Fan. Vantech's Tornado TD9238H 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 4,800rpm. It can be easily installed in a wide variety of desktop cases and yet is capable of pushing more than 100% of the air than a standard 92mm 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.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful

Pros: This is a very powerful little fan.

Moves a lot of air.

Cons: The noise level is high.

Other Thoughts: I don't have these fans installed in a computer case. I'm using them instead installed in an innovative way that I may attempt to market at some point to keep my entire computer room cool. Yeah, they're that powerful.

I also have one installed in my home made kegerator to circulate air. In that application I believe the tornado fan is considerable overkill.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat

Pros: Great airflow.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Yes, its loud, but in Louisiana, you can't have a 'quiet' gaming pc unless you live in a tiny airconditioned apartment or have the funds for serious watercooling. If you use this as a cpu fan as I do, and have a good set of 2.1 or better speakers, something with a nice sub, you'll hear your games and movies fine over this. Now if you tried using them to replace all your case fans as well, you'd have a problem, but as a single fan for cpu heatsink, you get used to the noise. plus it moves enough air to cool a richland 6800k with a mild overclock and keep it under 50c at full load in the sweltering Louisiana summer.
this is in a microatx tower, with a simple 92mm heatsink, and three cheapie case fans. Te only hard part is mounting it, since most heatsinks dont have screws for 38mm fans, but this is solved by using shorter screws through the bottom holes, and a screwdriver that is skinny enough to go through the upper holes. put a little loctite on the threads first, then install, and finally reattach the fan guard with its included screws, and you're good to go.

4 out of 5 eggsThe Frig

Pros: Pushes air like non-other. Help keeps my PC cold to the point that during the winter light frost formed outside of the case.

Cons: The knock on it, which is why I gave it a minus egg but not bad, is it's a bit loud so this is not the fan for a HTPC. If near a TV or radio, use headphones if possible. Sounds like a jet taking of and in flight.

Other Thoughts: I'm using this fan along with its smaller brother (80mm version) in my InWin J-508G Mid Tower case. Smaller one in front, Larger one in rear. The old fans weren't doing the job. People who've seen it nickname it "The Frig" or "The Freezer". Mind you it is loud and pushes air like non-other, but it gets the job done. I love these fans.

5 out of 5 eggsLOUD!!

Pros: It keeps the case nice and cool or it gets the hose again. I knew that it was going to be loud when I bought it. I thought that I could use the fan controller that I bought or the case that I bought has fan switches on it to use to tame this sucker, I was wrong. I used it for 2 hours. It kept the case at 74F, as well as my CPU at 100F (Runs at 119F without this beast fan) and my GPU at 95F (Runs at about 115-120F without this fan). So the thing works, I just don't know how to tame it.

Cons: Of course, it's loud. Like someone described "a hairdryer...on high". I say more like a vacuum. If you need a baby that needs to go to sleep that likes white noise while you game then this is a fan for you. It sounds like a loud drill. I don't know what else to compare it to to warn you not to buy it unless you know what you are doing or are willing to deal with the noise. I live in a house that is 106 years old...with thick plaster and lathe walls and real yellow pine wood. I could hear it downstairs....through shut doors, walls, and a 12" thick insulated floor.

I knew that it was going to be loud when I bought it so no loss of an egg because it does what it is intended to do, keep things cool.

Other Thoughts: I still don't know what type of controller to buy for this thing, so I will just keep it until I get around to installing it for an attic joke. I read that someone uses 2 of these for his camper.

Find a controller and you might be able to tame this beast of a fan. Good luck. We're counting on you.

5 out of 5 eggsThese things Blow, HARD!

Pros: They Blow. They come with Fan grills to protect your fingers. They keep things cool, by moving a lot of air in a shorter amount of time than the competition.

Cons: They're loud. (duh!)

Other Thoughts: If you are running these on 12v, you're gonna want the machine outside, unless everyone in the house is deaf.
If you run it on 7v, noise is not an issue. of course, this means the fan will run slower, which means your device will probably run hotter (7v mod = put red(5v) in where black(ground) belongs. 7v mod is important if you want to run this indoors and do not have a fan speed controller.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's loud.

Pros: Moves lots of air.

Cons: Too loud in all honesty.

Other Thoughts: I cut the molex cable off and soldered on a three pin fan header. The fan still works, but it's not being voltage regulated by the motherboard like it should be. Could be a faulty solder, or maybe the fan cant be voltage regulated. Not sure. Can't really understand the purpose of the molex cable. The three pin header seems to power it just fine...

Pros: 2nd highest cfm for 92mm only behind delta's dh3 8k rpm beast (but its got 4 amps current draw compared to 1a with this)

Cons: none at all the noise means its working :p

Other Thoughts: so much airflow it slowed down my psu fan (it used to be an exhaust guess ill have to flip the fan) case is well sealed but its pulling air in through usb ports too :)

5 out of 5 eggsVantec Tornado 92mm

Pros: Super high air flow.

Cons: YES it is loud you have been fair warned.
But it can be tamed with the proper fan controller.

Other Thoughts: Just this 1 fan as an exhaust fan dropped mt internal temp 32f under heavy gaming load which is great.

5 out of 5 eggsThey last

Pros: They move a lot of air and they last 4ever.

Cons: They are loud!

Other Thoughts: I built a dual Xeon system using these for CPU cooling back when CPUs had one processor in them and NT4 was new. Ran it 24X7X365 for 10 years before I gave it away. Had to replace a couple of case fans during that time, but these were still trucking on. Great fans if you can live with noise.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Reliable Bought in 2005 - Moves a ton of air - - Noisy Yes

Pros: Moves so much air its not even funny. Can use for any application ( Intake, Exhaust, CPU cooler, Hot summer days on your desktop) .

So much air is moved with this, that on HIGH , it was able to lift itself off my desk and sustain a hover when I stabilized the sides.

This is a very very reliable fan - Ive owned (2) 80 (2) 92 mm since 2005 - and I have been using them daily ever since for gaming as almost max speeds.

Will keep your case very cool.

Would recommend replacing your CPU cooler fan with this as to the .001% fail rate, and air movement. Great for overclocking on air.

Cons: Yes it is extremely loud - only annoying when trying to watch a movie - Get a fan controller and well... they are still kinda loud .

Only con.

Other Thoughts: After 7 years , I will be replacing these with a slightly quieter model - though double ball bearings have proven themselves to me - and vantec. Great Job!
