5 out of 5 eggs120mm Prolimatech PRO Blue Vortex Fans

Pros: Awesome balance of CFM to noise
Beautiful color matches my system layout
These work great with my Cosmos 2 case's fan controller

Cons: They weren't free. They won't do the dishes or take out the garbage.

Other Thoughts: I bought 8 of these 120mm fans and one 140mm to replace the ones that came stock with my case (all except the front 200mm & the 2 silentwings fans in my Dark Rock Pro 2 CPU cooler) plus fill up all the optional fan mounts. All 9 of the Prolimatech fans installed easily, look amazing and work great.

Even after going from 5 fans (incl the cpu cooler) to 13 fans in all, the noise level of all of them maxed out seems to generate even less noise than the stock fan configuration and they weren't even rated to but about half the CFM that these are.

5 out of 5 eggsGrows on you.

Pros: I thought it worked well enough. I used some filters on them to control the dust off my beater case.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: They are nice fans. I suppose the shade of blue is easy on my eyes. Makes me think about replicating this shade and mixing up some paint at the store to match the other fans...

5 out of 5 eggsClicking noise

Pros: Already owned 2 from 2011. a 120mm and 140mm.
Blue fins, no LED, minimal vibration and noise. Honestly if there's any noise it is the mass of air going through and not the motor.

Cons: Received 1 out of 2 with a considerably audible clicking noise. Newegg gave me a credit to order another one. But this complaint is about prolimatech quality control.

Other Thoughts: I'm actually hungry right now.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Fan

Pros: Well Built, comes with 3-pin, or Molex adapter. Decently quiet. Have it as an intake fan on my NZXT Source 210 case. FX 4100 usually stays at 95* F (I'm not that intense of a user, don't laugh)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you mounting this as an intake fan, and desire to use the 3-pin, so you can manually control your fan speed, the 3-pin cord might be a little too short, or it would be a big stretch. Not a big issue for me, I just tucked it behind the other side of the Motherboard.

I am glad some fan companies are not seeing an LED light on a computer fan to be essential. I am glad this one does not have one, but this may deter some, younger, more flashy users.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Quiet, Great Quality

Pros: Great fan. I compared it to a standard 120mm Inland fan that I originally had, and the noise level was so much better with the prolimatech. Not to mention these fans look great if you have a case with blue accents. Very quiet, look awesome.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsNice and Quiet

Pros: These fans offer decent airflow with minimal noise. Plus it doesn't hurt that they are also a good looking fan as well.

Fantails come sleeved from the factory. And if y ou're like me and prefer to remove the stickers, you'll find that these come off with no fuss or muss.

Cons: Fantails are a bit shorter than I was used to.

Other Thoughts: Right now I'm using three of these fans in my 800D. Two are mounted as push/pull intake on my H50 and the third and a bottom intake.

did see a noticeable difference in case temps with the additions of these fans. But to be honest, I can't say that it was these fans specifically that contributed to the temperature drop. More due to the fact that I added more fans to the mix.

The sleeve on the wires is a bit strange. It's feels rubbery rather than the plastic or cloth feel you would get from paracord or sleeve.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat fan!

Pros: Great airflow. High quality sleeved cable.
Looks good in my case, matches my blue asus board. No LED's, I prefer lighting individual from cooling.

Cons: 3 pin connector is not black.

Other Thoughts: Also purchased 140mm and it is silent.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat fans

Pros: Extremequiet, moves a lot of air, decent static pressure

Cons: a little over priced.

Other Thoughts: I use 2 of these on a Corsair H80. I run them at full and I can not hear them. They have no trouble pushing air through the rad with little turbulence (noise). I was willing to spend a bit more because of the color of the blades, but you can find fans that are just as good $5 to $10 cheaper if color isn't an issue.
