5 out of 5 eggsGood fans

This review is from: Vantec Tornado 92mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD9238H

Pros: Last forever, I've had two of them in my 11 year old computer since it was built and both are still dependably cooling my CPU and venting the case to this day, never any problems with them whatsoever.

Cons: Extremely loud without a fan controller to tone them down A LOT! These things would embarrass a vacuum cleaner at a who can make the most noise competition

Other Thoughts: Using ASUS Probe and a Vantec fan controller to monitor CPU temp and keep the noise down. They absolutely can move some air, lots of air! I can't make myself subtract any eggs for the noise because they work so well at cooling my machine and their longevity.

5 out of 5 eggsjet engine

This review is from: Vantec Tornado 92mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD9238H

Pros: Moves a lot of air! Blew the papers off my desk on startup.

Cons: Jet engine! I had to bolt my tower to the desk.
Loud at max, unfortunately my mobo won't allow me to adjust the speed. Super cool, extra loud!

Other Thoughts: Great if you can keep it away from ear level.
Not sure how quiet it is at slower speeds, at max it's almost intolerable!

5 out of 5 eggsLOUD,FAST AND AWESOME

This review is from: Vantec Tornado 92mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD9238H

Pros: Bought 3 of these fans! Yes they are super loud but anyone that thinks that fans that run off 1 amp,pull 15 watts,and push 119 cfm in a 92 mm size and are as loud as 56.4 dBa (decibels) are going to be quiet they are very mistaken!!!

-Keeps my old 2005 computer running at 83 on idle and 104 under full load with ambient temperature at 77 degrees in the old den/computer room!

-I have three of these! The First one is on my wife's Compaq's CPU Cooler (Cooler Master Vortex Low Profile 92mm Heatsink) Overkill for that heatsink but keeps her cpu at 85 idle and 102 at full load!

-I have the other Two on my cooler master hyper tx3 92 mm tower heatsink.Running push pull configuration (one on the front to push air in, the one on the back to pull air out) had to changed the included screws on my heatsink to get it to fit but it did after some modding (Used an old original xbox's screws).

-Once again loud and pushes massive amounts of air but I like the fan noise it tells me my computer is staying cool and is on! DEFINITELY NOT A "FAN" OF QUIET FANS!! I would rather have noise and less heat and silence and a hot running cpu! Oh and I can't afford liquid cooling otherwise I would go that route!

Cons: They are listed as running at 4800 RPM's but actually run at 4800-5300 RPMs Depending on the motherboard they are hooked up to my wife's compaq keeps at 4800 RPM's.However my computer keeps it at 5300 RPM's

um Had to modify it to fit my cooler master hyper tx3 92 mm cpu cooler but that wasn't the fans fault! Nor neweggs they were awesome as usual! Vantec Tornados normally don't fit the hyper tx3 cpu cooler!

Other Thoughts: These fans spin at 4800-5300 RPM's depending on the motherboard they are hooked up to my wife's compaq keeps at 4800 RPM's. However my computer's Motherboard keeps it at 5300 RPM's

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful

This review is from: Vantec Tornado 92mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD9238H

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

This review is from: Vantec Tornado 92mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD9238H

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

This review is from: Vantec Tornado 92mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD9238H

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!!

This review is from: Vantec Tornado 92mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD9238H

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 fan....no 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!

This review is from: Vantec Tornado 92mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD9238H

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.

This review is from: Vantec Tornado 92mm Double Ball Bearing High Air Flow Case Fan - Model TD9238H

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...

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 :)
