5 out of 5 eggsQuiet(er) than what I had

Pros: Bought this to try to find an adequate replacement for a Scythe Slipstream 1900. Wanted high CFM fans for my Prolimatech Megahalem but didn't account for static pressure. Was running two 1900's in push pull, switched the push out for this fan, and temps at load dropped 4 degrees Celsius. Considerably quieter than the 1900's as well.

Cons: Price. I'm fairly certain that if you were to get a name brand 120x38mm fan that you'd have better results, if not for the same price, cheaper.

Other Thoughts: I haven't tested the fan for CFM or dB, but it accomplishes what I've set out to do. Take it for face value, don't buy into the hype. It's a nice fan, but fans make noise. If noise is too much of an issue there's always sound dampening foam.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It spins.

Cons: Does not blow much air. The fan blades seem to get really hot if its an outtake fan and eventually slows down and blows even less air. It's also a lot thicker than most fans which seems odd to me. Another 120mm fan made by the same company and less thick blows more air at the same RPM's.

5 out of 5 eggsGot it from the "Cooking" store

Pros: I was pretty much forced to buy a fan after my hard drive crashed, cause I decided to put in a mirror RAID. The two drives were 1TB and ran HOT! I asked my spouse what I should get, so I wound up with one of these. Runs quiet, and my drives are cool.

Cons: The blades are very thin, light, and fragile. I suppose that's part of how they run so quiet. They slice the air instead of bullying it.

Other Thoughts: I have a very beautiful Cooler Master case. It's white with pink trim, decorated with "Hello Kitty" stickers. I have a G-Cube wireless keyboard that is pink. and I have a Logitech high speed wired gaming mouse that my spouse tore apart and painted pink for me. The factory fans are very quiet, but don't move very much air. I wanted to keep things pretty and quiet, but move enough air to keep things cool. This seems to have done the trick!

1 out of 5 eggsOverstated performance, understated noise.

Pros: It'll blow air, just not nearly as much as expected.

Cons: This thing WILL not run below 20dBA if tested more rigorously.
Companies are often far too lax with what they write on these reviews, since there is no industry standard on the dBA.
Have not seen a review on this specific fan, but will probably run closer to 30dBA/30-45CFM.

Other Thoughts: This problem occurs across the board in the fan market, find a good review site (There are a few that specialize in quiet PC hardware, especially fans.) and compare as many as possible for what you want to see.

Rule of thumb for 120mm case fans claiming to run <20dBA is they will probably only generate 5-25 CFM at 20-30dBA.

3 out of 5 eggsConfused

Pros: Silent

Cons: I bought this to replace a cooler master fan ( and thought that this would be a big improvement over my old cooler master fan, unfortunately once this fan was installed my cpu and case temp went up 5c, even though it is supposedly quiter and moves more air.

3 out of 5 eggsNot for me

Pros: When being used as a rear exhaust fan i think these would excel. They move allot of air and are very quiet when there is no load on them

Cons: 1 of the 2 fans i bought had a "ticking" noise, sounded like a hard drive working. I planned on using one as a intake fan on the front of my case with a filter soon as i put the filter in, it trippled in noise. I planed on using the other as a exhaust fan out the top soon as i put the fan blowing upward i heard bearing noise.

Other Thoughts: I took them both back, i would have kept the good one as a rear exhaust fan but my case will only fit a 92mm back there

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Put 1 of these in as my main exhaust near CPU and dropped a couple degrees at idle - also dropped a couple decibels.

Cons: $$$. It's pretty thick...I had plenty of room but could picture it being tough if you have a smaller setup.

Other Thoughts: If you got the $25 to spend on a fan go for it. I also have 2 Thermaltake A2492 's (good for only $9) but I wish I had 3 Silenx.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful, quiet, and not stinky

Pros: I have four of these running in a thermaltake armor case (one on the CPU heat sink, one on the rear exhaust, one blowing over the hard drives, and one under the optical drives blowing towards the RAM). They have all been running for nearly a year with no issues. They move a lot of air and are much quieter than they really should be. I have not had any of the issues described by other people: no strange smells, no failed bearings. I'm also very glad they came with the 3pin connectors rather than the standard molex found on so many other fans. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the purchase (from the "cold" CPU store since they were considerably cheaper at the time).

Cons: For me, the only con has ben the aesthetics, or rather, the lack of. Fan color is pretty nasty and no LEDs. Other than that, nada.

Other Thoughts: Reviews from other sites have indicated that these fans tend to fail if used on a PC that is run 24/7. Mine usually runs for an average of 6-8 hours a day, so I can't really comment on the long-term viability of these fans under constant use. I can say, however, that over the last 2 weeks of 24/7 use (folding), I haven't had any issues. This, after 11 months of use already.
***to the guy blaming the failed fan for damaging his CPU, if you're using an aftermarket cooler that requires a fan of this caliber, your are likely overclocking and as a result, you really ought to keep better tabs on your CPU temp. Anyone that goes beyond "stock", knows the importance of temp monitoring and clearly, you were not.***

Pros: Pretty nice, while it works. Definitely quiet.

Cons: Died after about a month and damaged my processor because it was the fan on my heatsink. Thanks, SilenX.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fancy looking, lots of big claims on the box. Does move lots of air.

Cons: Ridiculously loud considering they claim they are one of the quietest fans. No where near 14dba. The fan has a lot of motor noise, makes a whining sound. It sounds like a fan with worn out bearings. I tried the 11dba fan and it made the same noise. It's a design flaw, not a defect, IMO.

Other Thoughts: Spend your money elsewhere if you are looking for something quiet. My Cooler Master case came with 2 very quiet Cooler Master fans. They are silent compared to this.
