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.

Pros: Quiet, four wire.

Cons: None for 8 bucks.

3 out of 5 eggsI'm getting more performance

Pros: from my Asus z87-plus pwms, these are setup as intake on an SF-201 case. They hang around 17/1800 rpm at system idle and rev up a bit past 2500 under load. Of course they get louder, but not so much. My cooler's Hyper TX-3's rifle-bearing 120mm at ~1700rpm is much louder. Somehow they always manage to spin faster than the exhaust fans (noctua reduxs) so I know they're maintaing positive pressure.

Cons: Does not advertise how much static pressure they produce. The only marketing they say is that it has "high static pressure." Well... gee, is that higher than Noctua redux? Because those have a 1.4 in their specs.. So, I'm guessing that the high number of fins will lead to a higher pressure than 1.4... but who knows!

Other Thoughts: easy installation. I had no need to attach to the cpu fan header though, and to keep the wires out of the way they're only plugged into a single header, so I'm only getting rpm readout for the both of them which is fine by me.

3 out of 5 eggsHard to install with supplied screws.

Pros: For not being silent fans they are not too loud, but I did change the BIOS to "slowest speed off". As a replacement for the case fans it matched two back-side grills in a row. Heat is the enemy of electronics. Good that they were at a discount considering the install.

Cons: They maybe good fans but toss the screws away and use some with a tapper. The supplied screws are blunt nose and I almost broke the fans trying to start them straight into the holes, and grab the threads. The wires are fragile and solid conductor, so not very flexible, that remind me of cheap door bell wire. The wire insulation was nicked with the difficult install. Shrink tube to the rescue!

Other Thoughts: The ability to run the fans off of one jack is nothing special, but just a cross over of the wires to the jack. There is no electronics propelling/monitoring successive fans. Next time I may use my Roeswill silent fans and fashion a female jack for the additional fan. Study the picture to see the arrangement of the wires and jacks.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Fans

Pros: PWM Sharing, moves decent amount of air through my case, Have three of these in my case two as intake and one as a exhaust, along with two 120mm fans. Case is the Sunbeam Transformer.

Cons: Fans get a little more dusty than what I thought they would. Just something to keep in mind.

Other Thoughts: Would buy again

2 out of 5 eggsMoves air well, horrible high pitched coil whine

Pros: Cheap
Actual fan blades are quiet
Moves air well and keeps things cool
Standard installation, no problems getting it operational

Cons: Coil whine has given me a headache after only a few minutes of use.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend on its own merits. But it could be issues with this specific fan or my specific power supply/motherboard setup causing the coil whine as other people have reported not having this issue.

4 out of 5 eggsPWM sharing

Pros: PWM sharing works well - powering 2 of these off 1 motherboard PWM header. Came with installation screws.

Cons: You can start to hear them when they start going above 60%. Cables aren't sleeved (but you know that before buying) and the PWM sharing can sort of get in the way if you aren't using that part.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fans

Pros: Well I thought it would be a little bit quieter, But it's not to bad, I just have a thin case. It's a cute lil guy and you can daisy chain with it.

Cons: Nothing really

Other Thoughts: I would go with the 92mm, Or the 120mm, I had a 120mm and it was whisper quiet

2 out of 5 eggsNot as quiet as you'd expect

Pros: Looks nice, cools well

Cons: loud, had to return. Spent more money on a Noctura fan. Only fans I'll pay for anymore it seems.

5 out of 5 eggsCool fan

Pros: Looks good (no lights) and is quiet for an 80 mm fan. Mounted in my case as an exhaust without any hassle.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have this running on a 3 plug PWM wire and plugged into a PWM header on the mother board. I'm using this fan to set the RPM and have 2 older 3 pin 80 mm fans on the other 2 plugs of that wire. Now all three case fans run at the same RPM off of one header.
