Effizio Quiet Fans are designed with silence and optimal airflow in mind. Smaller, domed motor hub, larger, more dramatic fan blade sweep area, no other fans on the market come even close in performance! There might be fans that offer more airflow or lower noise levels, but when it comes to a balance between the two, these fans can't be beat, now with Japanese fluid dynamic bearings for ultra long life and reduced vibration.

  • newegg Ideal balance between performance and noise The SilenX Effizio Quiet Fan EFX-14-12 offers efficient heat dissipation. The 140mm fan delivers air flow of 48 CFM at a noise level of 12dBA, perfect for your quiet computing/gaming cooling needs.
  • newegg 3rd generation fluid dynamic bearings With 3rd generation fluid dynamic bearings, the SilenX Effizio Quiet Fan EFX-14-12 can last long and operate with minimum vibration.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet Little Fans

Pros: I can't here these sitting next to my computer over the front intake fans on my case. Comes with a molex 4-pin connector.

Cons: Doesn't come with a stat power adapter also. Had to dig out a modular cable for my PSU.

Other Thoughts: I use these as the top exhaust fans on a Corsair Graphite 230T, combined with the 120mm rear fan they provide more than enough exhaust power. Had to use the 4 pin connector because I finally ran out of connectors on my ASRock Fatal1ty motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsDang, that's quiet

Pros: Very quiet. I've never had fans this quiet before. I swear, it seems like the only noise is the air itself being moved, and you can only hear that when you put your ear right next to it.
I put my computer on my desk, and I can't really hear these fans at all from my chair.
Works absolutely as advertised.
Contains a nifty rubber mounting system that does not use screws and helps reduce noise

Cons: Moves air slower than other fans. It's a fair trade-off for the noise (or lack thereof).
Yellow color isn't the most beautiful, but it's not too bad. Fans are colored according to noise level by SilenX.

Other Thoughts: I recommend this fan, if you are looking to build a more quiet computer. However, if you need extreme air cooling, these fans may not be for you.

4 out of 5 eggsSuper quiet.

Pros: It's large and in charge of moving air. It is exceptionally quiet too.

Cons: Could be cheaper but it is still worth the money.

Other Thoughts: I use it in a recording studio where I need my computers to be absolutely silent. It isn't dead silent but with the case stuffed back behind a desk, it's barely there versus before, with my stock fans, I would have to shut the computer down.

5 out of 5 eggsgood solution for AV cabinet

Pros: quiet, pushes air

Cons: none really, unless you expect a smaller fan to push as much air quietly

Other Thoughts: I put two of these on an AV cabinet with (Zalman FANMATE-2) controllers.
While these are not at all noisy, I was able to use the controllers to drop the speed so that I could not hear the fans at all with my ear next to the exhaust side.
Big, slow moving, silent with all the air flow I needed!
I have used other Silenx for a couple of years & they have not quit.
When they do quit, there is no LED to inform that this has happened, which suits me fine.
Rather than have unwanted light, I opted for redundancy, relying instead on being alerted of any fan failure when I clean the (Silverstone FF143B 140mm) dust filters.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: These are about as silent as you can get while still pushing a decent amount of air.

Cons: None, if you want a powerful fan look elsewhere.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and Effective

Pros: - Very quiet at 12dba
- Moves a good amount of air for noise limit
- has a molex and a 3 pin connector

Cons: none thus far.

Other Thoughts: Really like the yellow look as top case fan. not really into to LEDs so some color is nice in an all black case.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: Moves a lot of air

Cons: Loudest fan in my new Corsair Carbide Series 300R case. The stock fans are more quiet- by a long shot.

Other Thoughts: I suspected it wouldn't be very quiet when I saw it has far fewer blades than the stock fans of the same size.
