3 out of 5 eggsTheir case fans...

This review is from: Fractal Design Silent Series R2 FD-FAN-SSR2-40 40mm 40mm Fan

Pros: Small and designed to be quiet. Wire is three pin and braided sleeved.

Cons: The wire is like 6in and I can only fit 1 1/2in plus the connector is too big for my header.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks just fine

This review is from: Fractal Design Silent Series R2 FD-FAN-SSR2-40 40mm 40mm Fan

Pros: Works good on my Asus sabertooth Z170S motherboard. Fan fit just fine and was picked up by the MB fan control programs.

Cons: time will tell

3 out of 5 eggsDecent...that is all

This review is from: Fractal Design Silent Series R2 FD-FAN-SSR2-40 40mm 40mm Fan

Pros: The move a lot of air for their size. Come with a nicely braided cable.

Cons: So why 3 stars? Well, I bought these to provide some cooling to a 1U server acting as a firewall. Withing a couple month, one of fans I bought started making a terrible sound. It turns out the bearing is pretty much shot on the fan. I would have liked to get more than 2 month of use out of it.

This review is from: Fractal Design Silent Series R2 FD-FAN-SSR2-40 40mm 40mm Fan

Pros: Was fairly quiet at first

Cons: Two months of continue use is a bit unreasonable

Other Thoughts: Hope it was a fluke and I purchased another one...but at 10 bucks a pop I can not afford another in two months...

5 out of 5 eggsSilent and moves a lot of air.

This review is from: Fractal Design Silent Series R2 FD-FAN-SSR2-40 40mm 40mm Fan

Pros: Quiet even at 4000 rpm
Moves tons of air for such a small fan
low power

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For a fan this small, I feel there should be a size comparison.

1 out of 5 eggs50% Failure Rate so far

This review is from: Fractal Design Silent Series R2 FD-FAN-SSR2-40 40mm 40mm Fan

Pros: Nice slick packaging, including mounting screws

Cons: 3 of 6 purchased less than a month ago have already failed. Loudly vibrating and rattling sounds when running. So far, the other 3 are running smoothly and quietly. Returning isn't worth it, so they've been thrown in the trash. 50% failure in less than a month is absolutely unacceptable, and I will not be purchasing this brand of fans again.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Fractal Design Silent Series R2 FD-FAN-SSR2-40 40mm 40mm Fan

Pros: Small
great packaging
sturdy cables
decent airflow

Cons: Not very powerful even on 12v loads (but hey its a tiny fan)
loud for its size (not a problem for my use)

Other Thoughts: Shipped out fast and arrived in bubble envelope.
Bought 3 for a custom Raspberry Pi b case and couldn't be happier. There's not a lot in the system other then lots of wiring, 4.3'' LCD, and several battery packs, but these fans keep the system at a comfortable temperature. Would definitely buy more as soon as I have more projects
