5 out of 5 eggsSuperb

This review is from: SilenX IXP-76-18 120mm Case Fan

Pros: Moves a ton of air at exceptionally low noise level when running at full speed

Cons: No lighted version :(

Other Thoughts: I will definitely be using more of these in my high performance rigs that get hot. This allowed me to not go with water cooling. I'd rather put my bucks into a 10k hard drive than a water cooler and this allowed that to happen. I'm happy.
Please note that these are THICKER than a standard fan. Be sure you have room. Apx 1.5 times as deep.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SilenX IXP-76-18 120mm Case Fan

Pros: These fans are great. Great airflow to keep the components in your case cool. Being thicker then your average 120mm it has wider blades and can push much more air. While i admit they are pricy most fans have to generate a lot more noise to equal cfm or sacrifice alot of flow to keep it quiet.

Cons: -would be nice if it had 4pin plug for pmw control but i use a fan controller anyway so not really an issue for me. Perhaps those without one though.
-would also love it if these had led lights.

Other Thoughts: These fans are much thicker then your regular 120mm fan so make sure you have the space for them. For an idea of how big they are take two 120's and lay them on top of each other. The silenx is about 3/4 of the combined thickness.
As for the noise level it really depends on your definition of noise. What you hear is the whoosh of air not the mother or a high pitched whine. I recommend a fan controller so you can adjust speed/noise to your liking. I only crank it up during gaming. Only 50-70% otherwise.
These are great for top vents (no rattle when secured properly) and rear vent. Side placement may interfere with gpu depending on width of case and a bottom mounted hard drive cage will not allow for front placement unless its removable. As for a bottom case vent I'd say probably not but i guess it depends on the thickness of your psu cables. Mine are thick and won't allow it.

5 out of 5 eggs120x38mm

This review is from: SilenX IXP-76-18 120mm Case Fan

Pros: Moves a lot of air with less noise than anything else. Silicone fasteners work well in some setups.

Cons: Doesn't fit some setups at 38mm thick

Other Thoughts: I've had this for a bunch of years (since it came out so at least four, maybe six?) and there's not really anything that compares. It's big and if run at higher speeds, can be louder than anything else. If run at nominal speeds, it will push more air with less noise than any other 120mm fan.

To address the complaints in other reviews, first about noise: different boards/PSUs will throw different power at your fans, so these will run different speeds in different setups. If you can control the speed, this isn't an issue. If you can't, then yes, they might be loud. But so will any fan. If you have restrictions, that can make noise too. Ain't the fan's fault.

And just as some of the other reviewers, I had this fail loudly after about 4 years, in a pretty dusty environment. Pulled it apart and oiled it and it's running fine. If your in a smoky/dusty house, it might fail sooner. Other fans have not lasted so long. Fans are a mechanical wear part--they die. Fact of life.

And yep, it's 38mm thick, so it might not fit your application. I bought two more of these for a 240mm radiator and I expect them to perform just as well as they have in my case.

The color is not "silver". It's metallic bronze-y spray paint. If you care a bout looks, just buy a mac. If you want a brutal air mover, the IXP-76-18 (120x120x38mm) is your only candidate.

In summary: if you can't go wider diameter, here's a way to move more air by going thicker. It really works. This is good gear.

4 out of 5 eggsGood quality

This review is from: SilenX IXP-76-18 120mm Case Fan

Pros: They move a lot of air for the price. Nice and cheap. Fit in case nicely.

Cons: They come with plastic screws, and after 2 weeks 4 of them broke. Lost an egg for that. I have not had time to deal with that situation yet.

4 out of 5 eggsNot for Vertical Mounting

This review is from: SilenX IXP-76-18 120mm Case Fan

Pros: The fan is quiet and moves a lot of air.

Cons: This was bought for a specific purpose and to be mounted with a vertical air flowing up direction. It caused a lot of vibration and under and over revving of the fan. After different attempts to dampen the vibration, I flipped the case 90 degrees and the noise stopped.

Other Thoughts: Long story short it works well with air flowing vertically or down. but not up.

2 out of 5 eggsThey're OK-ish

This review is from: SilenX IXP-76-18 120mm Case Fan

Pros: The airflow is eyebrow-raising. I plugged it in and put my hand behind it to check. I don't know if it's around the level of 90cfm, but it's still pretty impressive. If good airflow is more important than anything else, this fan will certainly do the trick.

Cons: The noise. Oh lord, the noise… I don't know what dimension they traveled to and came up with an 18dBA rating, but in this one, it's nowhere close to that. I tried replacing a fan rated at 17dBA, and it was a LOT louder. Now, obviously, with a fan moving THAT MUCH air, the airflow alone is going to be the source of a significant amount of noise. In this case, I couldn't even hear that over the sound of the fan itself. At 1400rpm, it's unbearable.

Other Thoughts: I have two of these plugged into a Corsair Link cooling node. I had to update the firmware on it first, but I'm now able to control them pretty well. At around 400rpm, they're pretty silent. Generally speaking, if they're kept under 1000rpm, it's no big deal. Anything above that makes them sound like a fan I'd expect to find on a video card at full speed. I bought them thinking they'd be pretty quiet, even at higher speeds. For the high price, that is what I'd expect.

The fans themselves also just look and feel very cheap. I haven't had any problems yet, but I'm a little concerned with the high number of reviews I've read claiming that these fans only lasted a few months before dying out.

If the airflow is the only thing that matters, these fans will do the trick. If any type of noise management or longevity is important though, I'd recommend avoiding these at all costs. While these fans are working for me, I can't help but feel that I really wasted my money.

1 out of 5 eggsNoisy-X

This review is from: SilenX IXP-76-18 120mm Case Fan

Pros: I would be dead if my life depended on thinking of any. Zero. Nada.Zip

Cons: Purchased several. All are dead. Motors and bearings melt. Fan blades fall out on the floor. Impellers warp and blades scrape housing. These things just feel cheap and flimsy. Stay away from this junk.

Other Thoughts: Worst fans fans I had ever owned.

If you love changing fans, get a few dozen of these, you will stay very busy.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fan if you have room for it

This review is from: SilenX IXP-76-18 120mm Case Fan

Pros: Moves a lot of Air and is not loud at full speed. It comes with a 3 pin to molex adapter and Rubber isolators as well as screws. This fan lasted over 5 years of almost 24/7 operation in a dusty environment. Keep it clean and it will last a long time.

Cons: The finish of the plastic material seems to encourage dust to stick to the blades and internal body of the fan and needs extra attention when case cleaning.

This isn't necessarily a Con, the Fan body is thicker than a standard 120 mm fan, this wide body design with steeply curved blades is how it moves so much air at a low noise level. Make sure your case mount will allow room for this beast.

Other Thoughts: When the fluid bearing eventually begins to dry out (in 5 yrs or so) the fan will make a vibration noise someone else reviewing described as a lawn mower. I removed the fan from the case and pulled the rubber plug on the bearing cap, put 4 drops of ATF transmission fluid in there just to see how it would work and put the rubber plug back and reinstalled in my case. 6 months later still going strong and quiet as the day I first put it into service over 6 years ago. I am more than getting my money's worth from this fan.
