5 out of 5 eggsDirected air flow works very well

Pros: So I picked up a Silverstone case off Craigslist at a steal of a deal for my micro ATX build and it included one of these Air Penetrator fans in the front of the case connected to a built in 2 phase fan controller as an intake(the one in this case happens to be a 180mm AP fan). Let me tell you this fan moves air, and it moves it in an a "tunnel of air" that you can easily feel (as one reviewer put it, "6 feet away"). That reviewer wasn't exaggerating one bit. The fella I purchased the case from owned it for two years in a smoke free environment and this fan is still working at probably close to factory quality. Impressive to say the least. The case I picked up is the Silverstone TJ08B-E

Cons: I guess a little noise, but that's to be expected with fans. Fans make noise and no matter the gimmicks companys keep coming up with, fans make noise. If noise is your issue, go water cooled in a sound dampened case. Radiators require fans so..... there's no way around it in the long run. Also, the Air Penetrator series most certainly couldn't be the best choice for rads, but they also most certainly couldn't be the worst either.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Square frame - so many 140mm fans have a round frame that can prevent them from clipping into a fan holder, like the one on the front of a Fractal R4. This one slides right in.

DAT AIRFLOW - Works as advertised. It's like a tiny little tunnel of air, instead of just turbulent blah-whatever air that undirected fans put out.

Reasonably quiet at 5V and 7V
Price is reasonable: could be about $5 cheaper, but hey

Cons: Gets loud at the highest 12V setting

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic fan!

Pros: Very quiet, especially if you do not have anything obstructing the intake. I have a blank hole cut out for it, no filters or mesh, and while it's not silent it's the quietest fan in my system.
The cable sleeving is good, while I would have preferred that it went up to the actual motor hub it's not a big issue. The colors of the wire are not visible through the sleeve.
The directed airflow design works exactly as advertised, check out Silverstone's video demonstration of it for a better idea.

Cons: Fairly weak static pressure, though that's an issue most 140x25mm fans have at the moment. I personally would not use these on a rad, I would go with very high static pressure 120mm fans and a 140mm adapter. That being said, these are not really designed for rad use, they are designed to be intakes on your case.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Fan I Own

Pros: This fan moves a TON of air. You can really tell the difference from any other fan just how much air it moves and also how directional it is. I HIGHLY recommend this fan to anybody! The MIR also came back!

Cons: To loud for me at full RPM. Don't like the RPM getting any higher than 1250 for this fan in-particular. At 1250 RPM I can't hear it. Its nice to have the head room though if you really want to max out the performance of your system and fan.

Other Thoughts: MIR took about a month and a half. Not bad really. I will defiantly be fitting my system out with these if I can.

5 out of 5 eggsthe fan for all Rad & Heatsink

Pros: really the best fan for Radiators. no dead or weak spots on coolings fins on Rads or Heatsinks. so get that maximum cooling. highly recommended for 20+ FPI (Fins Per Inch) on rads like the hwlabs BlackIce GTX. and its not much noisy at all at1500rpm @ 12v. great Static Pressure for the rad and heatsink. good air flow.

Cons: turn the fan up side down makes humming noise like something isnt right in the motor must be just the one fan i got to test out on my rad like the other fans i'm trying out

Other Thoughts: all around really good fan where you want the air the Most

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Product!!!

Pros: Excellent airflow and easy to set-up. Has a nice blue tint to the fan blades. Cheap price. :)

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Purchased this fan to replace PSU fan that began clicking and making this noise periodically. I replaced with the ap141 and now it works silently and effectively. All I had to do was a tiny wire mod to join a 3 pin to 2 pin in order for fan to work in my older PSU. Excellent product!

5 out of 5 eggsPassive cpu cooling?!

Pros: Lowered my cpu temps several degrees. No need for fan grill.

Cons: No leds to make my case glow (though im looking into uv lights)

Other Thoughts: I am using dual xeons and its hard to find (i know noctua has one) active coolers when the processors are that close together. So I got a Lian Li pc-x500 case that has no drive bays in front of the motherboard to help airlow. The fans that Lian Li includes are pretty and quiet but don't put out much air. The Air Penetrator isn't the highest CPM fan but it does a great job at channeling all that air directly where I need it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Intended Applications

Pros: Very effectively tunnels air to components. Also very quiet operation for a 1500 RPM case fan, which is in contrast to what "starkline" observed in a separate review, so it's possible that "starkline" received a defective fan. This fan is designed more specifically for case intakes and areas that require high static airflow, such as high-density finned CPU coolers, hard drive cages, etc. If you are looking to exhaust air from your case, then you may be better served by a standard, higher CFM fan, which diffuses the air stream in a much wider pattern. In all, however, the Silverstone AP141 (as well as its 120mm brother, the Silverstone AP121) is an excellent consumer-based fan that is very well-suited for its designed purpose. Highly recommended in this regard.

Cons: None that I've found.

Other Thoughts: Dropped case and CPU temperatures across the board in all three of my company's most recent computer builds. Have been running four AP121's in conjunction with three NB-Multiframe M12-S3 fans (the NB’s used as exhausts) in a fourth build from several months ago, and no fan failures or unusual fan noise in that machine, which runs hard for an average of 14-16 hours per day.

4 out of 5 eggsGood but not epic

Pros: Comes with a 5v/7v/12v 3 header, 3 pin adapter to lock in a speed and sound if you wish. Very powerful at 12v but a bit noisy

Cons: Honestly for a 120mm it's quite noisy at 12v on mounts that are point blank intakes with no spacing in front of them. 7v is the right noise you would expect but feels rather week in a spaced or point blank mount see other thoughts for details.

Other Thoughts: @ 7v in the side door it matched the other fans in my case fractal design r3 with COOLER MASTER R4-S2S-124K-GP 120mm Case Fan swapped in as well to fill all fan spaces. I was using a gtx 275 that constantly hit 100% fan speed and even in a sound dampened case was noisy as all hell. This fan aiming direct to the GPU and the other fans increasing overall airflow lowered the temps under load by at least 5c making it only get up to around 75% fan speed brining DBA outside of case that is otherwise silent down greatly when gaming.
