5 out of 5 eggsComparable with more expensive fans for half the costs

Pros: - This fan pushes A TON of air
- The noise levels are great, you can barely hear it spin
- The fluid dynamic bearing means I'll have this fan for years without worrying about the bearings failing like with sleeve bearings

Cons: - The fan is more of a dark, navy blue color than black. The promotional pictures are pretty misleading in this regard.

Other Thoughts: Seriously get this fan. I replaced my very mediocre Thermaltake case fan with this as an exhaust fan and the difference was phenomenal. I seen a large decrease in CPU temps and motherboard temps in general. I am really impressed with this fan and plan on filling my case exclusively with these when I get the chance. I also plan on using two of them on my Hyper Evo 212 in a push/pull configuration.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Bought 2 of these to mount to the top of my rig to push air out and they sure work swell. Quiet enough with a whole lot of air flow. I notice some people dont like the silicone mounts that came with, I was a hesitant myself but found they were convenient and made installation a breeze. Would buy again

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: They don't work well with a fan controller, just let em rip.

5 out of 5 eggsZALMAN F3 FDB

Pros: I have 3 of these mounted with silicone pins, in my line m case by rosewill and a enermax all in one water cooler at the rear exhaust.. this combination works great.

Cons: still working great for these last couple months. vibration is down and noise is o.k.

Other Thoughts: 1500 rpm isn't silent by any means, without backround noise they would be a little noisey for a really quiet situation. Get 1200 rpm or 1000 or lower if your cooling can tolerate it. these are on a fan controller anyway.

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.
