Bearing noise after just 5mos
This review is from: EVERCOOL EC-3510 Series FAN-EC3510H12E 35mm Case Cooling Fan
Pros: Works as advertised for awhile.
Cons: Short bearing life, non-standard 2-prong plug (still works W/3-prong fan to 4-pin molex adapter when plugged in right), and wire through the special mtg hole ruins the mounting hole.
Other Thoughts: I bought two of these and after just 5mos one is now making bearing noise until it warms up. Pretty shabby lifetime. Not worth the trouble to warranty. Just don't expect these to last a long time, prob is there are very few alternatives out there at this size. Also, one hole is blocked by the wires unless you remove them from the slot, making it easy for the wires to push into the fan blades. That hole is made into a slot, meaning you can remove the wires without pulling them through, and said hole is significantly smaller, making it nearly unusable as a mounting hole. Since I was mounting using tiny cable-tie straps, it was not an issue to me.
