5 out of 5 eggsExtremely powerful, but also very noisy—works great at lower voltages

Pros: Exceptionally powerful when run at the full input voltage. 240 CFM of raw airflow on tap makes this beast ideal for systems with very high airflow requirements, such as rackmount servers.

Very efficient at low input voltages. While the specified input voltage range is 6.0–12.8 volts, it'll run, albeit slowly, with voltages as low as 5 V. Below 6 V, the fan moves a good amount of air without being too noisy.

This fan is also designed to be safe and reliable. It uses double ball bearings and has a specified life of 70,000 hours, according to the datasheet. The fan has reverse polarity protection, preventing damage due to reverse connection of the + and - leads, as well as stall protection, which shuts down the fan in the event it stalls.

Cons: Unless operated at low voltages, this fan is very noisy. As specified on the datasheet, the noise output is 62.0 dBA, this value is measured in an anechoic chamber one meter behind the intake side of the fan. Needless to say, you'll want to use a fan controller.

The power consumption is also unusually high, unless you're running it below 6 V. This fan pulls nearly 30 watts at the specified voltage, with a peak draw (e.g. when spinning up or stalled) of about 50 watts. Fan controllers that can power this fan without burning out may be hard to find.

Other Thoughts: Something to keep in mind if you're powering this fan from a 5 V power source such as USB: At low voltages, especially below 6 volts, the fan speed can vary noticeably with small differences in voltage. At 5.25 V, the fan pulls about 0.36 A. At 5.07 V, it pulls about 0.25 A, with a commensurate difference in speed and airflow. Fan speed and power draw ramp up dramatically as you increase voltages from the low end of the operating voltage range, tapering off towards the 12 V nominal voltage.

5 out of 5 eggsBig time Fan for a big time computer.

Pros: 120 mm. Does not make in 140mm, 200mm etc. I wish... fantasy of moving thousands of cooling CFM.

Goes onto the back of the case near the top behind the CPU, Memory sticks as a exhaust fan.

Cons: It's hard to find a con with this fan, after some thought I found three.

No grill, usually have them in a side box parts or buy them seperately. I consider these a health safety requirement as this type of fan can cut you to the bone.

They do not make this fan in other sizes such as 140mm, 200 mm etc.

Power. 3 something amps on 12 volts. It's awesome when you consider that it is more than what HO Scale model trains need in a multi diesel unit lash up.

Other Thoughts: I have a Ultra Kaze of similar class and strength working on the front of the case, exhausting forward outwards trying to cool 4 Seagate 2gig hard drives. Two of which are operational.

5 out of 5 eggsMoves air like no other 12 volt fan

Pros: The ONLY reason to buy these fans is because you need to move a ton of air with a small 12 volt fan. (Instead of a 120 volt AC box fan or something)
They are loud. That's all there is to it.
Hair-Dryer loud or louder.

Cons: Loud? Not a con because you know what you are getting.

Other Thoughts: These fans move a lot of air and are worth every penny if that is all you care about.

5 out of 5 eggsJet turbines

Pros: Incredible power

Cons: I believe these fans were originally made for jets, but yet ended up in my computer.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you use these fans with a speed controller, as you are liable to lose a finger or two, or blow your eardrums on max power. Other than that, these fans are incredible.

2 out of 5 eggsFind something else.

Pros: Push's a whole bunch of air, when and if it works.

Cons: One was DOA, the other had broken corners during and couldn't get a proper seating when fastened down. That's more USPS's fault, but there was no protection in the packaging, so newegg definitely dropped the ball with that. Just threw two fans in a box and kicked it out the door. Noisy as all get-up, too. So unless you keep your fan outside or in a sound proof box...good luck. May be able to cut the noise down with some headphones, but definitely not good for constant use.

Other Thoughts: When these do actually work it pushes enough air to make a wind tunnel. But unless you're putting a server in a nevada desert and you can't afford an air-con. well...You get the picture.

2 out of 5 eggsUnnecessarily Loud

Pros: This fan moves a lot of air

Cons: The motor creates a vibration which adds more noise
The 2.45 amp draw will kill most PC fan controllers

4 out of 5 eggsAwesomse Fan

Pros: -Massive Air Movement, Blows almost as good as my Industrial Fan that cost me a pretty penny.
-High RPM
-Great Control of PC Temperature

Cons: -Lots of Noise equivalent to a small/medium vacuum

Other Thoughts: I have to be honest, as much as this thing pushes air. Its like listening to a small/medium Vacuum running in the background.

Also be aware this is also 120x120x38 its a bit thicker than more 120mm fans. Learned this the hard way when I bought two thinking I was going to replace my front fan as well as the back one. LoL Very much my Fault, but I was just looking for something that would get my desired Air flow from under 50CPF. At 240+ CPF with the added bonus of being bigger in girth, it actually pulls more air through my CPU, kicking that fan up past its normal range of RPMs. Impressed, yes. Temperature difference in CPU = YES.

Replacing a standard 1500 back fan with this bad boy dropped CPU temp by 15 Degrees Celsius. To most people this might not seem like a lot, but go look at the difference between Celsius and Ferenheight then think about it.

If your Aiming to buy this for the air movement alone, then this fan is a BEAST. I call it a Behemoth. Due to its suction power alone. When you could block your fan flow easily with even a thick piece of paper, now its impossible unless your forcing the paper against it.

I love it, in fact I'm buying a bigger tower so I can actually put this and its partner in the middle area so I'll hear it less but create more air flow.

End Result, 4/5 Because of the noise being the only thing that could be bad. =P

5 out of 5 eggsA True Man's Fan

Pros: 240.96 CFM of raw unadulterated airflow. If you are looking for a cat that purrs this is not for you. This baby stakes its claim as airflow champion by screaming at 62 dBA. This is its war-cry that will strike fear into the hearts of its competitors. Even that sissy vacuum you have will drop its tail between its legs and hide in a corner whimpering after it hears this monster from across the room. Sure you could buy a fan that is silent, one that conforms to the standard toy of a fan, the kind of fan that won't bite if you try to pet it. I am sure it will get along nicely with the world's propeller hats and pinwheels. Or you could get this beast of a fan that growls because everything gets too close. The kind of fan that bites if you get too comfortable with it. The kind of fan that would make a manly man grunt like 'Tim "The Toolman" Taylor' in satisfaction.

Cons: Despite it's airflow tenacity, it will not generate enough lift to make your computer fly. This is a huge con but since other computers don't generally fly I won't dock an egg.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fan

Pros: I laughed for 15 minutes straight after powering up this beast for the first time, so much awesome in such a small fan. The pro is simple, it does what it says it does, moves a ton of air.

Cons: Not compatible with sensitive operators/users.

Other Thoughts: Its loud, the manufacturer says its loud, everyone of the reviews says its LOUD... So don't buy it unless you don't want loud, or are not willing to by a fan controller to operate it.
