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.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet!

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

Pros: No LEDs
Very, very quiet

Cons: Maybe a tiny bit thicker than some other fans

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace the garish blue led fans in my original Antec Nine Hundred case. They fit perfectly with one exception -- The clips for the side fan don't quite close over these. That may have more to do with the case than the fan.

I can't hear these over my GPU/CPU fans.

3 out of 5 eggsLoud.

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

Pros: they work.

Cons: i switched from 28 db fans to these fans hoping they would be even quieter than a 20db noctua fan. these things are sure loud for 12 db.

Other Thoughts: fairly disappointing. don't buy if you think these are quieter than noctua.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well, Looks Great

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

Pros: This fan is freakin silent and freakin yellow! Got it to match the color scheme of my In Win Buc case. Much quieter than the stock case fans.

Cons: Had to pay for shipping :(
The included vibration-absorbing mounts didn't really work with my case, but that was alright. The mesh grating on which I have it mounted provides enough flex to not induce vibration noise.

Other Thoughts: Not really a pro or a con, and I know a lot of you are thinking "awesome, that cord is short so I wont have to do a bunch of cable management," but the cord is kinda short for my purpose. I have mine mounted on my access panel to vent heat from my video card, and I have to be careful not to remove the door too quickly, lest I yank the cord out of the mobo header.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good

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

Pros: - Runs very silent
- Reasonable CFM
- no stupid LEDs

Cons: - None really

Other Thoughts: Use this as a push case fan for a previously fanless SFF (HP Pavillion, 2006 model). I used double-sided mounting tape to attach it to the side vents, this way it sits directly above CPU and NB heat sinks. Works well with motherboard sys fan connector.
