2 out of 5 eggsGood...and Bad

This review is from: SilenX EFX-08-12 80mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Build quality looks quite good. Frame and fan are both quite sturdy. While running there is no vibration nor any electronics noise. The addition of both regular screws and isolation mounts (rubber screws) is a nice plus. Since I'm not a windowed case user it's nice to have the molex pigtailed so neither connection option ever gets lost.

Cons: I'm amazed that so few find these fans have a definite whine while running at the standard 12v. I this EFX-08-12 (12db) and the EFX-08-15 (15db) versions thinking the 12 would be absolutely silent while the 15, if I strained hard enough, would offer at least a faint noise. Unfortunately I was surprised that both offer up blade induced airflow whining noise surpassing that of my purported 18db and 24db fans running at 12v.

Other Thoughts: Sadly I have to rate these SilenX fans low as my main reason for buying them was the claim of being quiet. While the airflow is greater than expected so is the noise.

The Linkworld FAN-8-2 80mm fans I bought here just over a week ago for 1/3 the price (multi-discount) are rated 30db @2600 RPM but are much quieter when comparing airflow noise. Unfortunately they do have an ever so slight ticking noise and a little less airflow than the SilenX. I was expecting to under-volt the Linkworld fans for near silent use but they are quiet enough at 12v out of the box albeit a bit airflow challenged.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fans.

This review is from: SilenX EFX-08-12 80mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: I ordered two of these fans for my Corsair Obsidian 250D build. They are silent and work great.

Cons: No cons.

4 out of 5 eggsScrew too small

This review is from: SilenX EFX-08-12 80mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: 1. Silent;
2. Moves air OK;
3. I like the yellow blade color.

Cons: 1. I installed 4 of these in my chassis, the noise is a little louder than I expected;
2. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: The screws comes with the fan is a little bit small, as a result, I cannot secure the fan tight enough. Lucky I have some backups from other case fans which works great.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet

This review is from: SilenX EFX-08-12 80mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Lasted only two years

Other Thoughts: The fan worked well before it started making all kinds of horrible noises. Literally two years to the week since I originally bought it. I don't know how long fans are supposed to last, but most fans have given me more life than two years.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet. Easy install.

This review is from: SilenX EFX-08-12 80mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Cool, quiet, comes with rubber mounting "pins" to reduce vibration. Big improvement from original 80mm fans in an old PC that's ended up in the living room and needs to be quieter.

Cons: Colored fins could be, but not in my case.

Other Thoughts: They use fin color to highlight different product lines (defined by noise level), which could be annoying if color mattered to you, but it doesn't in my case.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Quiet Fan

This review is from: SilenX EFX-08-12 80mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Fan runs extremely quiet. Silicone dampeners provide extra vibration deadening as well.

Cons: Does not move as much air as some of my previous fans.

Other Thoughts: As I mentioned, this fan doesn't push as much air, but the benefits of less noise outweigh air flow in my current setup.

5 out of 5 eggsVery quiet

This review is from: SilenX EFX-08-12 80mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Extremely quiet. I virtually cannot hear them. I'm not sure airflow is super high but they seem to work quite well. I'm also just using for a HTPC setup so it seems sufficient

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Was using Antec 3-speed fans prior. Perhaps it was rattling from not using the rubber mounts but these are noticeably quieter. Absolutely worth the upgrade
