5 out of 5 eggsupdate after install

Pros: The Prolimatech Ultra Sleek Vortex 140 is very quiet, has pwm control, moves decent air through filtered bottom grill with minimal/no vibration, and it fits in restricted 20mm space below graphics card. This two ball bearing fan is suitable for horizontal mounting, while the many many dishonestly mislabeled sleeve bearing fans are not reccomended for horizontal mount.

Cons: blows air sideways

4 out of 5 eggsthe only one that fit

Pros: The ultra sleek vortex 140 is a very quiet and15cm thin long lasting two ball bearing 140mm pwm case fan with 120mm mounting holes.
Fan comes with both an unsleeved 4 pin extention, a molex adapter, and 4 black screws.

Cons: a bit pricey. As a filtered intake fan it mainly blows air siseways off the blade tips instead of straight air flow.
For my purposes this is actually a benefit, driving hot stale air up from under graphics card.

5 out of 5 eggsQuite and Sleek

Pros: Very sleek looking fan was very quite as stated in specs. Works nice with any computer used for gaming due to high CFM. No problems so far with this product.

Cons: Price is a little high but as they say you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Overall very happy with this product. $20 price tag is a little steep for the low budget builder/gamer but it is worth the money if you can afford it.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty cut and dry.

Pros: -Its all The Last Airbender up inside this case, Fight off the entire Fire Nation by pointing your PC at them.
-Win the fight, Get the girl.
-Very Quiet.
-Skinnier than my anorexic cousin.
-Seriously. It moves air...pretty quietly... GOT IT?

Cons: -Looks cheapish. Pretty Woman style; Cheap and rough with a heart of gold, could clean up well or be hidden away.
-Not the "thinnest" fan at 15mm.
-Not the cheapest fan
-Not the sexiest fan
-Not the final answer
-Not the droid you are looking for

Other Thoughts: If you're counting millimeters to get something in your case there are thinner fans. If you are bulding a case that showcases its fans, there are sexier fans. But honestly, This fan fulfills my every desire that a fan can fulfill.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Moves lots of air...

Cons: ...at the expense of lots of noise. I was under the impression this fan would be really nice. I was looking for a shallow 140mm to fit in a 120mm space, be quiet and move some air. It sure failed at the noise part. I thought perhaps it was because of moving air thru the grill, but I held the fan up in open air, no obstructions and at full speed, 12v, was just as loud.

Very disappointed in this fan. I have it in my pc parts boneyard box. Basically these will eventually be thrown away or reused as spacers for other fans in my cases.

Other Thoughts: Don't know if I received a defective one, but I have tried using it in several scenarios, just doesn't work. I would not recommend this fan.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good fan

Pros: Low profile fan that moves a lot of air. I am using this fan as an exhaust in the top of my case and it pushes a ton of air while being nearly silent!

Cons: Would have been nice to have an arrow indicating air flow direction. Fortunately I got lucky and mounted it correctly the first time.

4 out of 5 eggsGood thin fans, could be faster

Pros: Two of these fans fit my Armageddon heat sink perfectly in a push/pull configuration, using the add-on clips (purchased separately) from the manufacturer.

The temps are nice and steady under heavy load.

Cons: Peak RPM between 1,100 and 1,200. I wish I had picked up faster fans in a small profile like this.

Other Thoughts: Antec 902 case
Rampage 2 Gene motherboard
Armageddon heat sink

1 out of 5 eggsOver rated air flow

Pros: Slim if you need it.

Cons: I think the airflow is over-stated. I had two of these and two other fans rated at 89.55 CFM. I had one each mounted side by side in an intake position and an exhaust position. In both cases you could feel with your hand that the other fan was moving a lot more air. I would say at least 25% more. The pressure spec. is actually quite low.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fans

Pros: I'm using these in a push / pull configuration on my Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. They fit great and cover 95% of the cooler fins. They move a lot of air and have given me the opportunity to OC my i7 960 to 4200 on air.
The fans are pretty light too which is good in this application.

Cons: I ran two 120mm Cooler Master fans on the 212 Evo for a bit and think I was getting a little better cooling. However, these fans work great and did not fit as a replacement for the 120mm case fans so I've kept them on the heat sink.

Other Thoughts: These fans are pretty quiet for the work they do. They are not the high RPM fan that a 120mm is so they will be quieter.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't but this fan yet..

Pros: Fan looks pretty cool...

Cons: If you but this fan for anything other that a case fan (like Megahalems, Genisis, MK-26, etc) , you have to but special clips for these fans. Prolimatech only recommends one place to get them and the cost of shipping alone is $10, so you pay $15 for a $3 pair of clips. Newegg does not carry them. BE WARNED.
