The ARCTIC F PWM forwards the PWM signal from the CPU to the whole case ventilation system. With ARCTIC F PWM fan, your entire system delivers the superb performance while being cooled quietly.

  • newegg Versatile Applicable With the standard 25mm frame, the ARCTIC F PWM can be applied as intake or outtake system fan.
  • newegg Silent Operation Thanks to fluid dynamic bearing and the patented fan holder design, the ARCTIC F PWM is not only quiet, but also highly durable.
  • newegg Quick and Easy Setup Via the PWM signal, the CPU fan is controlled by the mainboard to reach the ideal temperature for the CPU. The exclusive PST (PWM Sharing Technology) is forwarding the PWM signal to all other fans inside the system. This way, all fans are spinning at the same speed. This provides silent operation in idle mode, but also gives sufficient performance, when required to offer efficient cooling.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat fan, quiet, PWM!

Pros: Great price for PWM! Quiet at max rpm.

Cons: Wiring the "PWM Sharing technology" is kinda funky and if you don't use it (as i think most won't) it just adds clutter. Not a huge con tho.

Also, would be nice if RPM maxed higher.

Other Thoughts: The "PWM Sharing" concept is to daisy chain multiple fans if only one 4-pin connector is available- so it comes with 4-pin, 3-pin and adapter. If you're not "sharing," just plug the 4-pin directly to the mobo- and then connect the extra 3-pin to the adapter, neatly tie and you should be good to go. (The directions are pictures only so figuring all this out took a few extra minutes)

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and inexpensive

Pros: - Quiet
- Came with adapters and cables for any hookup
- PWM (4 pin) fan
- Price

Cons: - Doesn't report RPM to my BIOS

Other Thoughts: Bought this as the primary exhaust for my HTPC build.

This is a great fan that came with all of the accessories you could possibly need to power it. Runs quiet, moves a good bit of air. My only gripe is that it isn't reporting RPM to my BIOS or Speedfan, but I'm OK with the constant, quiet airflow this provides.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fan

Pros: I used this fan to replace the fan on a stock hp heat sink (JasmineR motherboard) and the change is really noticeable. I am getting lower cpu temps now. It has great airflow and is very quiet.
This fan looks nice.

Cons: The wires!
I don't know why they couldn't sheath the wires, but it looks bad and gets in the way.

Other Thoughts: Was going to give 4 eggs because of the wires but the performance of the fan is great.

5 out of 5 eggsGot an Old Case that Only Uses 80mm Fans?

Pros: > Excellent Air Flow to Noise ratio
> Very Durable (I only have less than a year on my initial purchase, good so far)
> sturdy construction
> Nice looking

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For my small mATX corporate build where I only have one 80mm fan port, these babies flow more air, with greater quiet than anything I've tested and I've tested every decent fan on the market. I still have a few of the old Aluminum "Dragon" gaming cases that are still kind of cool but all require 5 80mm fans and that all barely cools enough. With these F8's the old Dragon is way cooler & quieter then ever before!

5 out of 5 eggsDaisy chaining all day

Pros: -Quiet
-Easy to install
-Color neutral

Cons: -Not as much airflow as I thought

Other Thoughts: The best feature about this unit is the ability to stack them together or use more than 1 fan per slot on your motherboard. My model of motherboard doesn't have a lot of connectors for fans so this is a dream come true. I insert this little guy on the front fan mount to pull air in, and i have a top fan coupled into the socket ( 140mm) to push the air out of the top of the case.

4 out of 5 eggsGood fans

Pros: They move a decent amount of air with a minimum of noise. PWM control works great.

Cons: The "PWM Plus" cabling seems to be a bit of a gimmick. The point is to run this PWM fan in series with a PWM CPU fan so they spin up at the same time and rate, giving the CPU fan the speed control wire in the passthrough cable. The 3-pin pigtail would then be plugged into another motherboard header for monitoring. This is great for motherboards with a single PWM header, presumably assigned to the CPU fan. However, just about any motherboard released in the last 3 years is already sporting multiple PWM headers. The extra cabling isn't needed.

Other Thoughts: If you want to run this fan by itself, you can plug the 3-pin pigtail into the PWM passthrough connector. It's clunky, but it works.

Otherwise, you could easily adjust the connectors to a single, 4-pin PWM connector by removing the pins from the connectors, snipping off the leads going to the passthrough, and putting the pins back in place.

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice, quiet fan

Pros: I recently upgraded the cpu in this slim cpu that my wife has been using. The stock fan was clocking at over 2600 RPM at 60 degrees Celsius just streaming Youtube videos. With this Artic fan, the temperature has dropped to around 52 degrees at only 2000 RPM. For a slim pc, there is not much room for adding extra fans, so this fan does make a difference.

Cons: It maxes out at 2000 RPM. I wish it could be 2500.

5 out of 5 eggsnice option to have..

Pros: used on CM 80mm Intel cooler for P/P config
PWM on 80mm for mini coolers, nothing else said..

Cons: wires could have more quality

Other Thoughts: 80mm CPU cooling solutions even with dual fans can only hold down an i3 stock, I clocked an i3-2130 to 3.6GHz and it ran hot.
so mini HTPC or office builds it's nice.
