4 out of 5 eggsDoes what it says

Pros: Does what it is supposed to do. Exhausts warm air from the bottom of the case. I have it running below my video card to get all the hot air out from underneath it. Otherwise, the hot air has no where to go, andd this is a quick fix to just get some airflow down there.

Cons: Doesn't have much airflow at all, but it's only $3, so what can you expect?

Other Thoughts: If your video card is actually running HOT, try getting a more powerful exhaust fan.

3 out of 5 eggsGood fan for the money

Pros: Easy to install, moves alot of air.

Cons: A bit loud, no speed variation knob. Other than that good fan for the price.

Other Thoughts: Thinking about placing a resistor in the circuit to drop the voltage and lower the rpm for a quieter fan.

5 out of 5 eggsI FOUD OUT HOW TO MAKE IT QUIET!!

Pros: This blows, literally, for a cheap price...

Cons: When i first plugged this in it was loud ( a whiney kind of loud) then i wanted to reverse the way it goes in the pci, so i took the metal thing off, and that peice of plastic with the basketball looking thing comes off, without that is is virtually silent, but it blows a little less

Other Thoughts: TAKE THAT TOP BASKETBALLY LOOKIN THING OFF ITS A LOT QUIETER, MAKING IT A REALLY NICE BUY

5 out of 5 eggssolves my problem

Pros: At full speed, I found the OK GEAR GC510 has about the same airflow as a more expensive and popular product available elsewhere. It runs almost silently at 5 volts with just a very quiet ticking noise that is buried amongst the sounds of CPU fan and PSU (once mounted in a closed case). Although the bracket is not designed explicitly to be reversable (as are the brackets of some competing products), you can reverse it with no problems.

Cons: At normal speed, the noise is bothersome, as it was with a competing fan that moved this much air. It was slightly more noisy than the other fan, but excess noise disappeared at lower rpm. The excess noise also disappears if one removes the plastic enclosure, so a motivated person might be able to fix it. Comparing fans at reduced speed, the this fan may be quieter than the other fan. Objective measurements were not taken, but at a speed that moved enough air to satisfy me, this fan is almost silent.

Other Thoughts: I'm using the GC510 a low speed... 5 volts... with a homemade shroud to draw a little air across a passive heat sink newly affixed to an nVidia 5200 card whose fan died a horrible death. I have seen warnings that a fan may eventually need more than 5 volts to continue to start, so I will eventually switch to either 7 volts or 12 volts and a resister. Comes with molex 4 pin connector only.

2 out of 5 eggsCheap, Not Worth It

Pros: Not that loud, moves some air

Cons: With this exaust in my case near my video card the gpu was at 54 degrees Celcius idle and 64 under load, without it fell to 51 and 59, I think the exaust was choking out the fresh air intake on the gpu heatshink. For my needs this was useless.

Other Thoughts: MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum, AMD X2 4200+, Zerotherm BTF90 CPU Cooler, 3Gig ram, Sapphire Radeon X1650 512MB AGP, 500Gig Seagate With 32Mb Cache, 500 with 8MB, 320 with 16MB, 2 160 with 8MB, Dual DVD Writers, Dell PowerEdge 600SC Server Case with a 120mm exaust fan, another 120mm exaust on my psu and two 92mm intake fans (one in front, one just below gpu)

3 out of 5 eggsloud

Pros: It's cheap. I got it with free S&H (from newegg), so it was really cheap. The is designed to snap off, so you can change the direction of the air intake duct. That's nice. Note: this is an exhaust fan. It pulls air from you case to the outside.

Cons: LOUD LOUD LOUD. I have a 5 other fans (including the PSU fan) in my case and this was louder than all of those put together. Really. It was that loud. I haven't seen a dBA rating on this and that's probably why.

Other Thoughts: Did I mention that it was really cheap?

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: Its a PCI cooler that cheap! The intake port can be switched from left side to right side depending on how you snap the bracket inplace...

Cons: Dosen't move a whole lot of air but it is quite...

Other Thoughts: I have two of these in my case one exhausting air off my North bridge 680i.. and the other pumping air off my tween 8800GT's...
I really enjoyed the fact that the Intake was "adjustable"...
Note: the picture shows the fan intake in the opposite position in which it came to me however you can correct this! even without tools!

4 out of 5 eggsWorth it if it has free shipping

Pros: Definitely helps keep my case cooler, avg CPU temps have actually gone down by about 1-2C and vid card is cooler now that I've added two of these, one next to my 8800gts and one right near the NB heatsink. Cheap as heck when they're running the free shipping deal.

Cons: These aren't as quiet as other reviewers led me to believe. Can definitely hear a quiet "whirr" even over my PSU and other case fans (one reviewer said they were totally silent. The 3 I got were not). That being said, considering cost and what not they're definitely worth a few bucks if you have empty PCI slots. Also, I ordered 3, one of them is definitely defective and the fan makes a pretty loud mechanical sound while operating, so that one went into the trash. Other two are quiet enough to use.

Other Thoughts: They definitely do the job, but aren't *amazing*. I'm quite curious to see if the "dynatron" version of these things are much better. Not willing to spend the 5$ shipping per unit to find out though :P.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat addition to Vid Card fan

Pros: Moves a lot of air quietly. I'm going to get a couple more for my other computers when they are back in stock.

Cons: Power cord could be a bit longer.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: This thing really does move a lot of air. You can literally feel the air being pushed while you hand is a foot away from it's discharge. Compared to my other fans, I can't even hear it on, very quiet. Cheap can't be beat! Seems pretty rigid and well built, to my surprise.

Cons: Overlaps to adjacent slots above and below it just slightly. I haven't tried putting any kind of pci card in these slots but I wouldn't think it work too well. I have a well ventilated case (Apevia Jupiter Jr) and got this out of curiosity. I haven't noticed any change in any temps though, but for those with heat problems, I imagine this would do a lot of good for your system.

Other Thoughts: I found it elsewhere for about the same price, but in a UV reactive red color. Overall I'm pleased.
