The ARCTIC F Pro PWM fan outperforms other 80mm/92mm/120mm fans in the market, in regards to their performance/noise ratio. With efficient central cooling, the ARCTIC F Pro PWM fans offer excellent cooling and noise control performance for the system.

  • newegg Best Noise-Performance Ratio The ARCTIC F Pro PWM fans deliver unbelievably quiet performance. The key to this performance is the patented vibration absorption of the ARCTIC F Pro PWM fans. This sophisticated feature absorbs vibration, caused by the motor of the fan. This way, the vibrations cannot be transmitted to the PC Case and other components.
  • newegg Easy Installation Installation can never be easier. Users can mount the ARCTIC F Pro PWM fans on the PC case by the four screws provided. Alternatively, these fans can be installed with screwless mounting mechanism provided in the chassis.
  • newegg Efficient Central Cooling by PST With the innovative patented PWM Sharing Technology (PST) function, the ARCTIC F Pro PWM can connect up to five fans, including CPU fans. The speed of all the fans in this PST system is now centrally controlled by a single PWM signal via BIOS.

Pros: after 2 years of constant Media computer use, its still dead silent!

Cons: Not massive airflow but i just got 3 of them.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, quiet fan

Pros: Good price
Moves plenty of air
Fluid dynamic bearing give long service life.

Cons: Unusual mounting frame means it won't fit in places a standard pancake-fan would go.
Apparently, the 4-pin PWM plug does not send fan speed data to the mobo.

Other Thoughts: Replaced some AC AF 8025 PWM fans that were finally starting to get noisy in my HTPC. These fans were amazingly quiet and move plenty of air.
The one unfortunate problem I had with them is, the 4-pin plug doesn't send the fan rpm data to the BIOS. There is a separate one-wire plug that you're supposed to plug into a 3-pin header for that to work. I'm using a specail passive heatsink on my CPU, with these fans plugged into the CPU fan header. When I first booted the system with these fans installed, the CPU fan failure alarm went off. I had to disable that setting in the BIOS before I could move on. Other than that, these are pretty good fans.

3 out of 5 eggsQuiet at times.

Pros: PWM keeps speeds low unless more cooling performance is required.
PWM sharing helps keep all fans under control even when motherboard only has one PWM fan socket.
Fluid dynamic bearing resists wear and is nice and quiet.
Rubber tethers absorb vibrations.

Cons: Rubber tethers are not stiff enough. When mounted vertically, fan blades sometimes strike shroud. When mounted horizontally, not a problem.

Other Thoughts: Doesn't move as much air as I'd like, but I knew that when I bought it. I'd like to see this same fan at a higher speed.

5 out of 5 eggsLove these Arctic PWM fans

Pros: Just replaced a six yer old standard Lian Li top exhaust fan and the noise is down significantly and the air exhausting out the top of the case is more definitely at least as much if not more at reduced fan speed of around 1600rpm, and at 2000rpm still quieter than stock Lian Li but much higher air pressure.

Have these fans (92mm version) running on my CPU cooler for 6+ years and still going strong

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsSize Matters

Pros: PWM and quiet. It works, as advertised. Will buy again when the need arises. They work great blowing across the mammoth heatsink of the Asus C60M1-i. I don't ever expect any heat issues.

Cons: see Other thoughts

Other Thoughts: They are just a bit thicker than most fans. In 99.99% of the cases (yes, pun intended) this should not matter. However, I am putting these in an Antec ISK case, which is small, so it does matter. I will be doing some case modding to remedy the issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: The idea is great, the blades and motor are dead silent(not the whole unit unfortunately.) Puts out a good amount of air. Its design starts this review well,

Cons: but the execution erases any practical use of this product.I was excited about the "rubber fan holder" when I saw it, but that's where it all falls apart for me. The rubber suspension holds the entire weight of the motor, blades and cage. This, combined with the flexibility of the mounts, lets the fan blades droop low enough to touch the enclosure mounted to the case or CPU and rattle or click against it constantly. The only application these fans would be suitable for would be as a top vent fan, but I have a 120mm fan for that already.

Other Thoughts: If the rubber suspension connecting the cage to the enclosure were a bit stiffer, these fans would be perfect. Another possibility would be higher clearance on the enclosure.

2 out of 5 eggsClicks, doesn't fit

Pros: Nice looking

Cons: I ordered two of these. One of them made a clicking sound straight out of the box. The other one took a couple weeks but it, too, clicked. The problem is that these fans don't sit properly in my case, a Silverstone GD05B. When you put the fans into the rear of the case, the box around the fans is squeezed and then the fan blades hit the box, making a clicking sound and often causing the blades to stop occassionally.

5 out of 5 eggsWrongs Specifications Right Fan Choice

Pros: While it's fun and educational to test numerous fan vendor concepts, I have recently emptied my numerous chassis of any other brand fan because the PST patented PWM sharing technology from Arctic Cooling simply works effectively and quietly, offering a high quality air-cooling solution with a Plug and Run, unified, integrated, demand load RPM regulation feature that control all of the respective AC fans which includes up to five (5) case/system, memory, and CPU coolers. I found that many of the product specification listings here for the AC Case fan products are incorrect at the time of this review.

Air Flow ( From the Manufactures Website )

F8 : 33 CFM / 56.1 m3/h
F9 : 39 CFM / 66.3 m3/h
F12 : 54 CFM / 91.7 m3/h

ARCTIC F PWM ( i.e. without floating frame feature)
Air Flow

F8 : 31 CFM / 52.7 m3/h
F9 : 43 CFM / 73.1 m3/h
F12 : 74 CFM / 125.7 m3/h
F14 : 77.3 CFM / 131.4 m3

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I found that when used across various yearly revisions of motherboards, using this brand eliminated the surprises that come with one motherboard versus another having different fan header pin types, (3) versus (4-pin) and also numbers of headers. I have them installed in both intake and exhaust configurations and as the primary for several water-cooler radiator cooling solutions.

5 out of 5 eggsNice and Quite

Pros: Very quite even at full speed. Open rear allows broader / less directional air pickup for more even extraction. Good air flow for such a quite fan.

Cons: This fan can only be mounted from one side and fan rotation direction is not reversible (it blows air out from it's mounting side). In most case configurations, it will not be suitable for use as a "front" case fan. It might work as a side exhaust fan to augment a negative pressure configuration but its primary purpose appears to be as a basic rear case exhaust fan. An 80 mm fan is a bit small for this but it can work if it gives you sufficient airflow. Keep in mind that most of the smaller "quite" fans are quite simply because they run slower and move a lower volume of air.

Other Thoughts: This is a good technology choice that will help future proof your computer case. I expect all future motherboards will support 4-wire PWM case fans. I have tested this fan with a 3-wire motherboard connector and it works just fine - at full speed of course. The ability to daisy chain off the PWM CPU fan is trick but keep in mind that case fans service more than just the heat generated by the CPU. It might be possible to have a memory intensive application running that does not use a lot of CPU. In that case, if a chained case fan was running slow due to low CPU utilization (i.e. cool operation), a condition might arise whereby the memory (esp. if overclocked) would not receive adequate airflow.

There's a lot to think about when spec'ing case fans. For best results, do some homework first. Remember, the CPU fan's output is not normally counted toward total input/output ventilation. It just removes heat from the CPU which must then be extracted by the case fans or power supply
