The ARCTIC AF 12Pro PWM fan outperforms other 120mm fans in the market, in regards to its performance and noise ratio. With efficient central cooling, the ARCTIC F 12Pro PWM fans offer excellent cooling and noise control performance for the system.

  • newegg Best Noise-Performance Ratio The ARCTIC AF 12Pro PWM fan delivers unbelievably quiet performance. The key to this performance is the patented vibration absorption of the ARCTIC AF 12Pro PWM fan. This sophisticated feature absorbs vibration, caused by the motor of the fan. This way, the vibrations can’t be transmitted to the PC Case and other components.
  • newegg Easy Installation Installation can never be easier. Users can mount the ARCTIC AF 12Pro PWM fan on the PC case by the four screws provided. Alternatively, the fan 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 AF 12Pro PWM fan 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.

4 out of 5 eggsMotherboard Fan Speed Sensor

Pros: Unique style and high quality fan, construction feels and looks very solid

Cons: Weak instructions, short cord length

Other Thoughts: When connecting to my Sabertooth z77 motherboard I could not get the chassis fan 4 pin connections to display the rpm for this fan. Any chassis fan connection I plugged this in (there are 4 on this motherboard) just displayed as N/A for rpm. I could mess around with the speed in the ASUS Thermal Radar program and see/hear the fan spin up or slow down but I could not get the RPM. Finally after looking up a number of written and video reviews I found one where the reviewer plugged the extra 3 pin connection into the 4 pin connection that can be used to daisy chain multiple fans. After doing this the RPM now displays in both the BIOS and in Thermal Radar. The instructions did say to plug the 3 pin connector into the motherboard to read fan speed, but I am using all of my cpu/chassis connections to track each individual fan and did not have any spare ones. Instructions are not clear that you can plug the 3 pin right into the extra 4 pin used for daisy chaining.

Also I bought two of these but the one I wanted to use in the front of my case (I am able to connect an exhaust fan to the HDD cage in the front) didn't have a long enough cable to connect to the motherboard.

3 out of 5 eggsDisapointing Quality

Pros: Rubber mounting for the fan reduces vibration greatly.
I had 80 mm and 92 mm version of it previously and I was pleased with them.

Cons: Fan blade is not well balanced. The fan is vibrating badly. If it wasn't for the rubber mount, it would have created very loud noise.
I did not have problem with their fans before.
Rubber mount does take care of vibration, but that does not mean it is ok to have unbalanced fan.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: A silent fan. Provides enough air to help my GPU cool off a bit (see other thoughts). PWM controllable, but I didn't hook it up to it.

Cons: (More like a heads up) Learn from my mistakes young eggawans (I tried). This fan is mounted by rubber stoppers that suspend it in the air. Those holes are not for your screws, there is no need to rip them out of their sockets. However, if you do this by accident all that is required are some needle nose pliers to pull them back through.

Other Thoughts: I mounted this as a side fan. It had a grill, It was protected, and my GPU was getting a bit warm for my tastes. This fan is attached to the side panel of my Cougar Challenger case and my motherboard's PCI-E ports are right below that spot, giving a fresh supply of air to my GPU. The reason why this is on the outside and why something else isn't on the inside is because of my massive heat sink reducing the clearance between it and the inside of the side panel. If you do this watch your cords as they will also be stuck on the outside as well (just need some maneuvering that's all).

GPU is an overclocked 7870 GHz edition by Sapphire with dual fans.

4 out of 5 eggsExhaust only

Pros: These are quiet fans. The engineering is interesting.

Cons: These are exhaust only. As someone else mentioned, who doesn't design a fan to work either way? Should have read reviews more thoroughly before ordering.

Other Thoughts: Have had one fan that "sags" when mounted vertically, causing the blades to strike the housing. Not sure why only one is doing it (have more than 6 deployed in various machines), but it does mean I have to open the case and "jiggle" it a little to get it to quiet back down.

4 out of 5 eggspleased.

Pros: quiet.
nice rubber mounts to reduce vibration.

Cons: Did not need ability to "daisy-chain" these fans, just an extra [very small] wire in case----but good price.

Other Thoughts: Speed sense did not seem to work at first, but after a (cold) reboot the MB had no problem; not sure why.
rpm test was 493rpm (40%) to 1587rpm (100%).

1 out of 5 eggsdisappointing

Pros: quiet

Cons: the P8Z77-VLK motherboard cannot detect it (maybe a defective fan---impedence/load mismatch?). I can, however, control the fan speed (as confirmed by hear and feel): but the system rpoerts no fan-speed reports ... disappointing. Will switch back to old fan :-(

Other Thoughts: not worth the cost in time and money to try and return it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Still quiet after running for one and a half year basically 24/7, at max. RPM most of the time.

Cons: I have to clean it every once in a while because it doesn't want to fail. Could be cheaper do.

1 out of 5 eggsShort life for a fan

Pros: It was quiet while it lasted.

Cons: Fan died after about a year of use. That is a really short life for a case fan.

Blades are very sharp. It will cut you if you touch the fan while it is running.

Would not buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: It's a fan and it does everything a fan should do. Keeps my case cool and is extremely quite

Cons: Mounting it in the case was a bit difficult. I eventually just used zip ties to hold it in place. The way to mount it is by using the mounting screws to thread the small outer holes in each corner of the back side of the fan.
