Shark’s Fin Blade Design:
Optimized for maximum airflow, Shark’s Fin blade greatly reduces the turbulence caused by fan rotation, thus decreasing the noise and vibration while increasing the airflow.

ELQ (EverLasting Quiet) Bearing Technology:
High-tech ELQ Bearing is made of nano-composite materials which minimize friction between the fan’s shaft and bearing, thus resulting in maximum fan life cycle with minimum noise.

Anti-Vibration Silicone Pads & Pins:
Silicone pads and pins prevent minute noise and vibration caused by friction with the case.

150,000 Hours Guaranteed Product Lifespan:
Aerodynamically optimized Shark’s Fin blade and high-tech ELQ Bearing made of nano-composite materials guarantee stability and product lifespan of 150,000 hours.

5 out of 5 eggsShark-Tastic!

Pros: Form AND Function!

Used this to upgrade Kraken G10 VRM fan on a R9 290 with great results.

Rubber mounts included.

Resistor included for lower speed/noise.

Cons: This fan is ever so slightly audible at full speed.

I will be very honest and say I am nitpicking, but for my HTPC I demand absolute silence. If it wouldn't have given such a performance increase I would have likely returned it.

Price. Once again, if it didn't perform I would have likely returned it.

Other Thoughts: Pricey, but functional even when pulling heat off of a VRM heatsink.

Results would probably be even better if it was pushing air through the heatsink.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Fan!

Pros: Definitely was not expecting this thing to move the large amount of air for the RPM and diameter! I'm an aerospace engineer I should know. Also, it IS as quiet as advertised.
The silicone pads and pins dramatically reduce vibration and the overall design is just cool looking.

Cons: I have had this fan for over a year and the only con I can find is that, when I change my case later down the road, if I don't have a 92 mm fan opening on the new case I will not be able to transfer this great fan.

Other Thoughts: None.

3 out of 5 eggsDid half the job

Pros: Very quiet fan, the rubber mounts it comes with actually work like a charm making the fan completely silent - cant even tell when it is on.

Cons: The airflow is not that great. I bought this because I wanted to get a fan that had more flow than my old old stock fan and was silent. This did half the job. Speedfan says this thing is running at 1600 rpm so I should be getting around 34 cfm. I dont know any home method to measure cfm nor do I have equipment but this pushes out less air then my noisy 7 year old stock fan and I'm pretty sure its not at 34 cfm at all. I put my hand to the fans exhaust and I barely feel a breeze. I think everything in my pc has gone up a few degrees (32ish-36ish). it was also quite a dime compared to other fans. Looks like I might be shopping around fans for a while till I find the perfect one.

Other Thoughts: Cause it's only three pin i cant tell when/if it will run at max speed so I can see some real results. I have a small case so I was hoping this would make a great main exhaust fan. I guess this would be perfect as a fan in the computer to just move air around but i wouldn't suggest buying it as a main exhaust.
If I see serious changes in temperatures on load I will probably return this fan and look around for another one. Shame I probably wont find one as quiet as this one.

5 out of 5 eggsUse the resistor (voltage reducer)

Pros: I am a stickler for a quiet case. Using the voltage reducer the fan is undetectable and I am quite pleased at the volume of air that it still pulls through. After a year the fan still runs well and makes no noise. Better than SileneX fans at any rate.

Cons: White? i dont get that.

4 out of 5 eggsLoud without the voltage reducer!

Pros: This punches out a good volume of air. The included voltage reducer works great. I liked the white color and the fan blade design is unique and seems to work. I really liked the design of the silicon grommets also. They hold the fan nicely in place but as quiet as possible.

Cons: This fan is quite loud at full speed without the voltage reducer. I was actually really surprised about that. I had just added a 7870 Tahiti LE card also purchased from Newegg and thought the fan on that was causing all of the noise. I found out that it was actually this fan at its native speed.

I connected the voltage reducer that is included and now the fan noise is minimal and it still pushes a good amount of air. I'm using as supplemental supply to my CPU in a Lian Li case so I didn't need the full supply of air that this fan could provide.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm pleased with this fan. I think most would prefer the full speed of the fan to produce less noise than it did, but the voltage reduction makes a big difference for the noise of this fan.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective Product

Pros: None

Cons: Ordered this fan the first time and the fan packaging was smashed and so was the fan casing. Preventing it from spinning at all. They sent me a replacement, installed it an it worked for 5 mins. Will not be ordering this fan again!

3 out of 5 eggsDOA....or was it?

Pros: This fan turned out to be very quiet and just want I needed.

Cons: When I first installed this fan, it didn't work at all. I tried it on different computers, different power supplies, etc. At most it would wiggle back and forth a couple of times then stop. I was about to get an RMA but I was making one last check and I spun the fan with my finger and it turned ok but sounded a little rough. I pushed and pulled on it some to see if it was binding and the fan actually separated from the motor! I put it back in place and the magnet held it in place fairly firmly and it could spin but something was still not right. I pushed down on it a little harder and heard a little click. Gave it a spin and it was perfectly smooth with no sound. Pulled on it to make sure it didn't pop off again. It was solid. No way this accidently came loose in shipping, it left the factory this way. Plugged it in and it is now working perfectly and silently.

Other Thoughts: If this fan worked when it arrived, I'm sure I'd give it 5 stars. The fact that it arrived in a faulty condition suggests to me that these are not tested before being sent out. I might expect this from a stock/OEM fan but not a "premium" fan.

If you have a problem with yours, you might want to try what I did before you spend time with an RMA.

5 out of 5 eggsShark Fin Laser Beams.

Pros: The shark fin design actually seems to pull alot more air than a normal fan of the same size while maintaining the silent factor. Comes with the rubber plug type of screw which is very lazy and easy to use. You will not be dissatisfied with these

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought this alongside a scythe and a cougar fan. They all perform well, but the design of the blade on this is great as an exhaust fan.
