The unbreakable rule has now been broken. Cooler Master’s Turbine Master is the company’s latest 120mm high air flow fan that refutes the standard of “high air flow fan = loud”. Modeled after a strong turbine engine, the Turbine Master produces a strong air flow from an ingenious 16-blade design and generates unsurpassed airflow combined with a circular semi-frameless design to maximize coverage and reduce noise. The Barometric Ball Bearing (BBB) can be easily removed to provide effortless cleaning and quick maintenance.

  • newegg Barometric Ball Bearing (BBB) Technology The innovative Barometric Ball Bearing technology provides longer life span while remaining lower noise level.
  • newegg Higher Airflow The COOLER MASTER R4-TMBB-18FK-R0 is equipped with 16 blades which cover maximum area and reduce the gap between blades, producing more airflow than regular fan, even under low speed operation. The blades are removable for quick and easy cleanup.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Fan

Pros: very quiet fan! using it as bottom intake in my CM Storm Stryker case definitely helps with my overall case airflow and temps!

Cons: None that I can find tbh.

Other Thoughts: only thing that would have really helped would be a bigger hardware selection for installing it into my case. But it came with what was necessary for a regular installation so all happy still.

4 out of 5 eggsFans

Pros: Look cool, move a decent amount of air. quiet, comes w mounting options

Cons: i have 3 diff brand of 80 cfm fans and these.. blow less.. not a lot less but enough to notice.. but that said they r almost silent at full power lot less than the other 80 cfm that im comparing them to

Other Thoughts: MFG should pump up the RPM a little would prob take care of the lower air. and if its too loud then we can turn them down lol

5 out of 5 eggsNoise overestimated, maximum effect

Pros: Alright this fan is actually decently quiet. I'm using it in conjunction with a 7970 Crossfire setup with no space between the card and it's really delivering cool air to the top card and keeping it nice and happy.

It moves a tonne of air, has a load of blades on it and is thin.
Looks pretty cool as well.

1800 RPM ± 10% as advertised.

Comes with a molex adapter so that is handy as well.
Long cable length so it can be put into very deep tricky spots and still be able to connect which is really handy. I run the cable underneath both of my 7970s and then up between the PCI bracket and the PCI slot onto the connector of my Biostar TA990FXE board beside the one molex.

The rubber pins used to hold it in place are very easy to install and hold really good; no need for screws but crews are included if you want to use them.

My favorite use for this fan so far is in the air duct inside of the Cooler Master HAF-X 942 in front of graphics cards.

Cons: It's not 4-pin PWM sadly. This fan would be absolutely 100% perfect on PWM functionality that way it could be applied to many different CPU cooling options. Not docking an egg because I'm not using it for CPU cooling anyway.

It only runs at 1800 RPM, varying slightly higher/lower as identified by listening to it. Knew this before buying.

Aside from essentially the product details, there are really no cons.

Other Thoughts: THIS FAN IS NOT NOISY.
Oh my goodness whoever individual thinks this fan is loud must be EXTREMELY SENSITIVE. Or a bunch of babies. Mahaha.

This fan is seriously over-exaggerated when it comes to noise. I was expecting it to be loud when I got it but when I plugged it in I was like "Wow. This fan is actually pretty quiet."

But no this fan is actually pretty decently quiet. Loud, is a 120mm standard fan running at 2200-2600 RPM like it did on my OLD computer motherboard. THAT was loud.
This fan is relatively quiet.

There is a slight buzzing noise but it is EASY to ignore. It's not annoying.

I've only had this fan for a few hours and already like it.
Give it a chance; you probably won't regret it.

5 out of 5 eggsImpossible Airflow

Pros: -Very high airflow!
-Quiet, and even silent at low RPM
-Smooth finish makes cleaning easier
-Very stylish - perfect for a window fan
-Well-equipped with quality mounting hardware

Cons: It's expensive. It is worth every penny though, so no egg removal.

Other Thoughts: I have this fan mounted vertically in the side-panel window of my Antec 900 case, and it is connected to a NZXT 30 watt-per-channel controller. My twin GTX 550 ti GPUs will register significantly lower temperatures when this fan is running at full RPM. I have come across hundreds of fans in the few years that I have been building, and I have never come across one that moves as much air as this one does as quietly as this one does. At maximum RPM, this fan makes a soft, humming whine that is hardly loud and pulls massive amounts of air into the side of my case. From low to low-mid RPM, it is nearly silent. I have been operating this fan nearly non-stop (I don't power down unless I leave town) for over a year now, and it still operates like it did day I installed it - perfectly.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerhouse

Pros: Extremely efficient (moves a TON of air), excellent design (comes apart easy for cleaning), super easy installation (less than 3 minutes), very cool looking with the turbine blades (if aesthetics is your bag), well priced.

Cons: Absolutely nothing. Fan is perfect as it performs exactly as it claims to, maybe even better. Think twice before deciding against this fan if you're concerned about the folks complaining that it's "loud"...(see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: I have an Xclio case with a pair of 240 mm intake fans on the side that are right in front of a pair of SLI'd GPUs. It all works great as those cards heat up pretty good but I was still a little concerned because I did not have an exhaust fan. Plenty of cool air coming in but nothing to pull it out. Adding this fan was the perfect solution and really made a difference in keeping the case nice and cool.

As for the "noise"...on full blast you can definitely hear it but I don't know what's "a lot of noise" as that is relative to different people...my video cards are much louder when they're running full blast (and it never bothered me plus I wear a headset for my gaming and I have that pretty cranked up so I had no problem with the sound.

If you are worried about sound you can plug the fan into the motherboard you can control the fan speed via bios and significantly lower the sound (IF it bugs ya) or you can get a fan controller and manually select your speed and greatly reduce the sound that way. Bottom line if you're looking for a powerful exhaust in a sturdy unit, this is the fan to go with

4 out of 5 eggsUnique Offering

Pros: Looks awesome, moves a LOT of air for a 120mm, optional nose cone (if you have the space for it) reduces noise noticably, undervolts well on fan conroller (more on that in other thoughts)

Cons: Lacking an outer case that fully covers the blades make it a little more vulnerable to being damaged by a drooping cable or something resting near it in your case (or your fingers installing it), the rubber pins they give you for install pull all the way through the mounting points making screwing a filter on the intake side impossible if you mount it with those

Other Thoughts: If you are looking at aftermarket fans and care at all about noise you are going to need to look into a little thing called a "fan controller". These handy devices let you manually select how much power is going to your fans and thus how fast they turn. This influences both the cooling performance and noise output. By turning a fan down even 10% from maximum the noise difference is HUGE. Ignore every fan review people whine about noise in when it's obvious they are running them all full out at 12v. Thats like buying a car that if its running must have the accelerator pinned. You don't always need a car or your fans running at 100% their capability. Just some food for thought to clarify A LOT of fan reviews I've read here on the egg.

5 out of 5 eggsThe name doesn't lie

Pros: -I got four of these bad boys as my side intake and man do they move some serious air!
-they look great except for one design flaw on cooler masters part (see cons)
-if your looking for near silent fans THESE ARE NOT FOR YOU! I personally like my computer to sound somewhat loud as a testament to the absurd amount of air I move through it (currently with these four Im pushing 600+CFM)

Cons: -the only real flaw I found in these is if your using them for intake like me the front bezel you have to install doesnt quite fit against the case mainly due to the frame of the fan, this didnt really bug me since I just left them off which doesnt seem to be hurting anything. Other then that these fans are another cooler master A+ in my book.

Other Thoughts: My build this far
-Rosewill thor V2 full tower case
-ASUS crosshair V mobo
-EVGA 660 FTW Nvidia Graphics card
-2 rosewill 230 mm, 1 corsair AF 140 mm, 1 bgears 140 mm, and 4 cooler master turbine masters
-Thermaltake 700 W PSU

2 out of 5 eggsProbably Going to Return... :/

Pros: This thing can really spin, it moves A TON of air for a 120mm fan. Have it sitting behind my front megaflow intake in my Haf XM case and it really helps pull the cool air deeper into my cases GPU area. High quality package, high quality fan with excellent build materials.

Cons: Jet Loud, I have four 200mm megaflows, one front intake, one side intake, two top exhaust, a single top corner 140mm exhaust and two blademasters on my Hyper 212+ and this thing is louder than all of them combined. This thing seriously moves air but its not worth the noise to me. I could not imagine more than one of these running at once. My system is now far from silent let alone quiet just from one fan addition. If you are trying to keep your system quiet this is not a good choice.

Other Thoughts: I am a HUGE fan of Cooler Master but this fan is a real drag from my personal needs/wants and expectations. This thing can REALLY move air. It is pretty dang loud, like I can barely take this thing sitting about two feet away from me it sounds like a jet. I have 30 days to decide for a refund but after two hours of it running am leaning toward it already. If you want extreme cooling this thing rocks but if you care at all about noise, I would NOT suggest this. It has a serious buzz to it, not high pitch like a wire touching it, just the 1800rpm blades moving air. If I do decide to refund it, which I am leaning more towards every minute, I will probably snag another Blade Master, Sickle Flow, Excalibur or maybe a slower Turbine Master. Thumbs down Cooler Master, your products are great but this is a real bummer was expecting much quieter.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, but LOUD!

Pros: Moves a lot of air.
Easy install.

Cons: LOUD.

Other Thoughts: This product is louder than the three other fans in my case. I have two Cooler Master that, 1@140mm and 1@120mm each at 900 rpm, that came with my Gladiator Case. The third is the CPU fan for my Intel i5, @ 1800 rpm. My fan controler lets me adjust this fan from 1000-1800 rpm. The sound is the same all through these levels. Once I turn this fan off, my case is completely silent.

It was touted as a quiet fan by reviewers, not so in my case.

However, it is WAY quieter than my old school Gateway from 2003!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We are sorry to hear that you are having trouble with the fan. Where exactly are you plugging the case fan into? Either the motherboard or power supply? If plugged into the power supply, the fan will run at max speed and will cause sound due to its high RPM. However, the speed of the fan can be controlled through the BIOS. If the fan is found to be defective, you can get it replaced under warranty. If you have any other questions, please contact us on live chat.

Respectfully,
CMUSA Customer Support
