5 out of 5 eggsBest fans I've seen for the price

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: These are good looking fans, and they are quiet while still having decent airflow. They aren't sleeve bearing so can be mounted vertically or horizontally. No LED's!

Cons: none so far

5 out of 5 eggsThese fans are THE best bang for buck.

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: I bought two of these fans to replace an outdated sleeve fan that I used previously in my last build, and fill in an open slot on the top to provide more ventilation. These fans have absolutely showed heat who is the boss, dropping my temps on my motherboard, graphics card, and VRM by nearly 10 Celsius! I currently have one pulling air in on the front, which is doing a fantastic job of keeping my hard drive nice and frosty. The one on the top is making sure that no hot air pockets exist next to my CPU and ram. Both of these are doing these jobs fantastically by producing hardly any noise AT ALL. The noise is literally almost non-existent, especially during gaming and just casual use. The rubber mounts are also a really nice bonus. They weren't too hard to install with. You just have to know how to do it haha. They are also a little hefty, which is quite nice.

Cons: None at all, other than that there isn't a black fan color option haha. For what you're paying for these fans though, I'd take them in any color haha.

Other Thoughts: I hesitated to buy these fans for a while because I thought that they would've been cheap. Well, I was dead wrong. I really wish that I had acted earlier. Don't keep contemplating on whether or not to buy these fans. Just buy them!

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and really moves air

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Fairly quiet. Not totally silent like the 12 db fans by this company, but still much quieter than most fans.
This thing moves air! Very good airflow considering how little sound it makes.
I switched the original Zalman fan that came with my liquid cooler with this fan, and the cpu temp dropped 10 degrees Celsius under full load. I couldn't believe it either; how can changing a single fan make such a huge difference? Now I have better cooling with less noise. I strongly recommend this fan.

Cons: Slight humming noise when running. It's very slight, and probably only noticeable if all your other fans are already SilenX. It's a fair trade-off for the amount of air this fan moves though.

Other Thoughts: Shout-out to their customer support here. I contacted SilenX directly when this fan seemed a little louder than I anticipated (my expectations were set a little too high after using some of their 12 db fans). They sent me another fan in three days for five dollars, and did not ask for the original fan back.
With good customer support and good products, what's not to love?

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: These fans are pretty impressive. The red color is a very nice darker red and will look good in many themed systems. The fan is incredibly silent, and I've owned some many higher end, much more expensive fans. They move a lot of air, especially considering the price they are and their volume level. They'll do well in any case.

Cons: The silicone mounts are useful, as case mounts. But are pretty hard in some installation spots. It's definitely easier to install the mounts to your mounting location first. Then trying to feed the tab into the fan screw hole, and pulling it through until it's all the way in.

Also, the MOLEX connector may be useful to some, but it's cumbersome in my application. Luckily, the 4-pin MOLEX power is an extension of the 3-pin. So I was able to cut off the connector and use electrical tape, so it fits without any clutter.

Other Thoughts: The fans are beautiful, but I had one with a minor defect in the paint. Not noticeable, really.

The cables are not braided, but they are all together in a black sleeve-type closure. They look nice. All the way up into the motor.

At the end of the day, an absolutely great value.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat DVR System Fan

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: *As quiet as it gets.
*High airflow, almost three times as much as most 80mm
*Runs at full power even off of a known low powered 3-pin
*Looks pretty awesome, especially with Black/Red themed cases.
*Rotational and airflow direction arrows on the side.
*Low cost.

Cons: *Doesn't come with a grill of any sort for the open bladed side of the fan.
*The 4-pin peripheral connector is a little too close to the 3-pin.

Other Thoughts: Installed a total of three of these fans at the front, side panel, and rear of a Xigmatek brand ATX mid-tower case. Constant cool air at the front and center of the case, and all heat effectively pulled out at the rear, whereas the stock 120mm fans left hot air build up at the center of the same case.

3 out of 5 eggsmostly hype

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Does move a fair amount of air, feels pretty solid

Cons: rubber mounts are hard to put in correctly
while quiet in open air, as soon as you add any kind of restriction (dust filter) gets much louder, still quieter than old 39db fans, not the advertised 15db for sure

Other Thoughts: just not as good as corsair air series fans

5 out of 5 eggsGood fan

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Quiet!

Cons: No molex pass-through...

Other Thoughts: For the extra couple of dollars, these fans are worth it for those who want a quieter system. The rubber bushings can be difficult in tight areas of the case to install, but nothing I couldn't handle.

5 out of 5 eggsFans you can sleep to

This review is from: SilenX EFX-12-15 120mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Quite possibly the most silent fans I've ever had the pleasure of installing in my case. I now have every possible location fitted with these fans, making a total of 4 in my Antec 900.

Cons: My CPU fan is too loud.
I can hear my HDD's, that's not good either.

Other Thoughts: Great fans, if you're looking for silence, get these.
