5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fan

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-12 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: This is a great fan.

Cons: I wish the fan came in black.

Other Thoughts: I own an IT business and use this fan exclusively when I need a 120mm case fan. It is very quite, but still manages to move plenty of air.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't bother

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-12 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: It works and puts out the air.

Cons: It's loud, kind of like the bearings are gone if it had them. In comparison, my Antec PSU is whisper silent and my standard AMD CPU fan is almost.

Other Thoughts: I see that there are bad reviews for the 12-15 model, but not this one. Odd.

5 out of 5 eggsI love these things

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-12 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: These fans are about as good as it gets. The airflow to noise rival even the best PWM fans out there. No need for a fan controller when you can't hear them running at full blast!

Cons: Not free?

Other Thoughts: I pride myself in having a VERY quiet computer. I have a total of 5 of these in my computer and they work flawlessly.

5 out of 5 eggsVery quiet, decent investment

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-12 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: - Straight-forward install
- Quite silent
- Impressive amount of airflow for the level of noise

Cons: - Probably not worth it unless you get it on sale, like I did

Other Thoughts: The other reason I got it was to swap out a blue LED 120mm fan. It seems that many of the best fans nowadays only have options with LEDs, which isn't a great option if you sleep in the same room as your computer and leave it running all night.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-12 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Almost totally silent, especially when mounted with the included rubber mounts

Has both Molex and hard drive connectors built into the cable

Cons: None for its purpose

Other Thoughts: This moves a lot more air than I expected considering how quiet it is. Even with other fans removed I can't it over the power supply fan. I found the rubber mounts easy to use and secure.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty quiet, bad rubber mounting grommets

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-12 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: 1) Pretty quiet. Nearly inaudible outside the case
2) Quality seems OK

Cons: 1) Terrible rubber grommet design. You insert the grommets into the case first. Pulling the grommets through the fan is DIFFICULT/ IMPOSSIBLE if your motherboard and other components are in the way. I swapped grommets to those from a LEPA fan that could be installed in the fan first. With these grommets attachment to the case secondarily was easy! Minus 1 Egg for terrible rubber grommet design.
2) NOT totally silent. This fan makes a soft hum but I seriously doubt you'll hear it outside a case. Moves excellent air for the very soft noise level

Other Thoughts: I wish they would make a version of this with LED lighting. The present LED offerings have slightly higher RPM and noise levels

5 out of 5 eggsGood fan...quiet

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-12 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Very quiet... i was looking to replace the existing 120mm fan because it was much too loud. This one did the trick. Im using it as a front case fan to cool 2 HD's in a RAID configuration.

Cons: none...

5 out of 5 eggsWow!

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-12 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Quiet. Able to connect directly to motherboard. The two I purchased achieved their intended purpose - to lessen the noise. That they have done superbly.

Cons: None that I can think of.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent results

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-12 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: very quiet

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: I've been using silenx products since the early 2000's..beginning with their power supplies. To be honest their products didn't live up to the hype. I've also used their previous generation fans - and while satisfactory - it was not up to my expectations. The third generation fan however does. You never know until its installed due to no industry standards for sound measurement - all listed specs must be viewed with skepticsim. This one is the real deal. And at half the price of Scythe fans I was looking at I'm very pleased. I will be replacing all case fans with this product shortly.
