5 out of 5 eggsSuberb quality and super quiet

Pros: I bought 3 of these fans from newegg(on e8ay to avoid tax) upon reading an online review. I wanted to share my opinion here. I think this may be one of the best 120mm fans on the market.

Pros-
+Very quiet. No noise from motor and at full rpm you just hear the air circulation.
+Great static pressure.
+Easy mounting with included rubber tool-less mounts.
+Looks very good next to led's. The blades reflect and it appears to be made of glass. Super cool.
+Excellent versatility. I have two mounted horizontally and one vertically. No problems with horizontal mounting.(I've had them for over 5 months now and they're on all of the time)

Cons: Negs-
-Cable is neither sleeved nor mono colored. It is silver and black. Still looks ok.
-The frame looks black here but it is actually a deep grayish-blue. This may or may not matter. It's still a great looking fan.

Other Thoughts: Get this fan if you are looking for days and in forums like I was!

5 out of 5 eggsworks well and is quiet

Pros: It does a good job as a rear case fan. Doesn't produce any vibration due to rubber grommets. Easy to install and works out of the box.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet, well-made, but . . .

Pros: Quiet. Quality construction. Should last several years on continuous use. Pushes a reasonable amount of air for a quiet fan.

Cons: Very high impedence. Do not attempt to throttle these babies with a fan speed controller - at all! They either run at full speed or not at all.

5 out of 5 eggsZalman 120mm

Pros: Very quiet
Rebate $10 so I paid only $2 for this fan. Still waiting for my rebate though

Cons: Silcone pins are useless, unusable. Better of with screws.

Other Thoughts: I replaced the H60 corsair fan to this fan.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth every penny!

Pros: -Fan pushes a lot of air.
-Better then any case fan i have ever used.

Cons: -Has weird rubber pins instead of screw. I understand that the rubber pins reduce the vibration and sound of the fan. They should include a set of screws for people who would rather use screws. (Not worth taking an egg)

Other Thoughts: I ended up using this fan on my 212 Evo. Very satisfied with this purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsIn my case, it sucks :-P

Pros: Quiet
More powerful than similar blade count and size (120mm)
Quiet
Quiet
Good lead (wire) length
Quiet

Cons: Silicone plugs were unusable/inconvenient

Other Thoughts: Zalman, nice thought on the 4 silicone screw-replacement things, couldn't use them - come up with a more compact design, throw in an extra one or two in the package, and you may have a fool-proof system.

VERY quiet fan in the front of my ThermalTake Versa II case. I wanted to make sure it was working as the case has a crawl space behind the front foam grille and it literally "sucked" with a good amount of force. I just wish I had a CPU fan as quiet, but I would need that one to "blow."

With the fan, my case temperatures for my Athlon II X4 640 with 4x4GB RAM, 3xHDD, 2xDVD-RW runs 29-30°C.

5 out of 5 eggsUsing as CPU Fan

Pros: - Fantastic fan, much better then the one that came with my heatsink
- Keeps everything cool

Cons: - None, except for the rubber pins took some workshopping, check other thoughts

Other Thoughts: In order to get the little rubber pins to work with my current heatsink I had to do some work-shopping by pulling them through with the bent needle nose pliers. It wasn't easy but It's snug now and works.

PS: I also had to plug it into the fan connector not the CPU fan connector so I get the "CPU FAN ERROR" every-time I boot-- oh well.

5 out of 5 eggswindy

Pros: Great wind, not super loud. I installed this on the side of my case which had a space for a fan. I had heat troubles with my last setup so my rebuild had to be COOL. Definitely works great. I know others have commented that there aren't any fancy lights and such, but it's QUIET which is what some of us are looking for.

Cons: None really. Great connector to have MB control.
