SilenX IXP-54-14 80mm Case Fan

  • 80mm
  • 1700 RPM 32 CFM
  • 14 dBA
ICON Loading...

The ultimate in airflow to noise ratio, iXtrema Pro Quiet Fans are the only fans in the industry to be designed with silence and optimal airflow in mind. A smaller, domed motor hub with a larger, more dramatic fan blade sweep area, no other fans on the market come even close in performance! There might be fans that offer more airflow or lower noise levels, but when it comes to a balance between the two, these fans can't be beat.

  • newegg Forward Sweep Fan Blades The exotic fan blade design has nearly twice the surface area per fin than most conventional fans, allowing far more air to be pushed per revolution than fans without the unique forward sweep blade design.
  • newegg Smaller Domed Motor Shape iXtrema Pro Quiet Fans feature a motor size smaller than other fans, maximizing the lateral area to facilitate airflow movement. Not only is this dead space reduced, a domed top allows for better aerodynamics and therefore, reduced air turbulence.
  • newegg Hybrid Motor Bearing System Ball bearings are prone to vibration causing too much noise. Sleeve bearings have a short lifespan. With the use of harder materials for the bearings and larger lubricant capacity, longer life and minimal vibration can be achieved.
  • newegg Silicone Vibration Dampeners Use the included silicone vibration dampening mounts to minimize vibration even further. By utilizing the mounts, vibration from the fan will not be transmitted to the casing, thereby preventing unwanted “rattling” noise from the case.

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely Quiet

Pros: Great fans, they are very quiet and the rubber feet are a nice touch. I bought 3 of these to put into 2 different systems and I have noticed the difference in airflow and how quiet the system have become.

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Fan

Pros: VERY quiet. Moves ~2X more air than a 92mm fan in my AZZA case. Rubber feet are a nice touch while they last.

Cons: The rubber feet wore out after 1 year. Not too big of a problem: just used screws to mount it and there is no noise increase.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for an old P4 system that I got from a flea market because it was missing its exhaust fan. Plugged it in and it is SILENT, I mean SILENT. Inhereted a new core 2 duo machine from a friend who built his AZZA case with the cheapest fans possible. He had a 92mm exhaust fan in the back. I replaced it with this 80mm model because it is quiter and moves more air.

5 out of 5 eggsWhisper Quiet

Pros: Silicon mounting screws make the fan even easier to install and hold the fan firm.

Whisper Quiet, as advertised.

Cons: Would have liked the power cable to be a little longer.

Other Thoughts: After making several extremely loud computers, I decided I would make a significant effort with my new project to be as quiet as possible. Replacing the stock case fan with this unit significantly decreased the noise level. All of my expectations were met.

4 out of 5 eggsInstall Properly the first time

Pros: Great product that works as advertised. CFM:dBm ratios for the price make this a niche market product sized fan.

Cons: The rubber plug 'screws' will eventually partially melt. If you pull them through too hard they'll also eventually break. Installing them perfectly isn't easy and must be done right. Little attention to the threshold and its importance was given in any of the included material and l found out after a few months that I had messed this part up as the vibration made the fans very loud.

Removal to install the metal screws means ripping apart the rest of the plugs that have melted to the slot. So not only do you have to install them correctly the first time, but you'll never be able to remove them without buying more or switching to the slightly noisier metal screws. The difference is noticeable.

Other Thoughts: I'm only taking one egg off for the lack of documentation and information about the nature of using these screws that are crucial to achieving the advertised CFM:dBm ratios.

Also, if you plan to use a filter (like I do on the intake set) then look carefully at the filter's design and how removing the filter to clean it will take place regularly. The first time I did this three month in, the rubber 'screws' had melted to the filter. It wasn't drastic as they pulled apart with no residue left on the filter; however, I had actually installed my front fans rubber screws correctly and wouldn't have needed to replace them with metal screws if this weren't the case.

Again, I'm only taking 1 egg off for lack of documentation explaining the significance and proper use of this aspect of achieving the advertised CFM:dBm ratios. They do work as advertised if you install and use them properly with consideration given to peripherals. My issues are otherwise user error (and cheap filters)

1 out of 5 eggsDON'T BUY!!!

Pros: They blow air.

Cons: THIS FAN IS LOUD!

I'm trying to figure out why people would say these are quiet. What are they comparing to???

I wasn't happy with stock fan noise level in the Antec Microfusion Remote 350 HTPC case (3 x 80mm, Antec Tricool on lowest speed setting).

I read the reviews, looked at the specs, and bought 3x of the SilenX.

To my surprise the SilenX fans were much louder than the Antec Tricool fans!

What a rip-off. Mark my words, you will not be happy if you're looking for a very quiet HTPC.

I ended up buying 3 Zalman Fanmate2 controllers to dial the fan speeds down. Easy to mount / hide inside the case. Even though they use resistance to slow the fans, and they generate heat, the Zalmans work great.

Save your money. Forget SilenX. If you're looking for a cheap method for HTPC cooling, stay with stock fans, and then dial-back the fan speeds with a controller (PWM or resistive based).

My PC is almost dead silent now running at 32C idle, 65C full load. CPU fan
