4 out of 5 eggstemp/rpm curve not to my liking

Pros: Didn't even plug it in but looks nice. And no LEDs.

Cons: Once it arrived i finally saw the temp/rmp chart for the thermistor on the packaging, which I searched for in vain b4 buying. it's a a slow climb up to 40C (900RPM) then a sharp rise to 1,200RPM at 50C, then a slow climb again to 80C. That doesn't work for me as a cabinet fan so returning it, but going with 4 stars since might be great as a PC case fan. I'm gonna guy the yellow version I think - seems like a nice balance of noise vs. airflow for my purposes.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little radiator fans

Pros: 1) Quiet
2) Good airflow even through a radiator (SP++)

Cons: 1) The thermistor should be removable or have an option to substitute it (so I could use my liquid temps directly)
2) Cables have molex and 3 pins hard wired together - untidy.

Other Thoughts: Cons aside, I'd buy these again.

5 out of 5 eggslove these fans

Pros: - really are quiet
- even quieter when your system doesn't need them running, the thermal sensor is fantastic
- easy to clean

Cons: - even with monthly dusting, the fans aren't as quiet after some time as they are out of the box, although still not loud

Other Thoughts: put these is every system i put together, they're reasonable priced, quiet, and only run when needed.

my system doesn't run much hotter than room temperature even before these fans, but i have fanless video card, so i anchor the two thermistors near the card, and when need be, the fans kick in for some extra cooling power.

5 out of 5 eggsUltra Quiet, great radiator fans

Pros: I bought these to replace the stock fans on my H80i, which were noticeably loud during gaming.

Plugging these directly into the H80i seems to bypass the thermistor and keep the fans running 100% at all times. Even at full tilt, these fans are almost silent sitting less than 2 feet away from the case. They feel pretty sturdy and don't seem to cause any extra vibration.

Cons: The rubber inserts are usless for attaching to a radiator, which should be pretty common knowledge.

The thermistor cables are long and get in the way. If you don't need them, you should probably opt for the version of these fans without them.

Other Thoughts: Even with another pair of EFX 14-12's (140mm) in the case now, my computer is quieter than it was with just the H80i stock PWM fans at load AND idle. If the non-thermistor fans weren't a blood red color, I would have opted for them instead, but a little bit of cable management solves that problem easy enough.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: They push a lot of air.
Quiet.
Variable speed keeps my case cool AND quiet.
White is sexy.

Cons: Kind of expensive for a fan, in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: The blade on one of the fans just slipped off. I was able to pop it back in, though. Haven't had any problems with it since. Guess it was just loose.

4 out of 5 eggsVery quiet

Pros: Very quiet fan and great airflow

Cons: The Thermistor solution require too much heat to start the fan so I plugged the 4pin power directly instead

5 out of 5 eggsExceptional!

Pros: I sometimes wonder if the fan is on, I have to look I can't hear it at all. I bought these to add to a NZXT Tempest 210, I mounted it in the front. Price isn't bad at all.

Cons: The fan has a thermistor on it, meaning it turns on when the case is at a certain temp. I personally don't like it. I'd like to manually change the fan speed. The rubber mounts that come with the fan are trash, they are made out of cheap rubber. I used the Screws. The fans don't start up immediately. That's due to the thermistor. Within 5 seconds they fire up.

Other Thoughts: Go ahead and purchase these fans. They are more then I expected.
