These fans have been specifically developed to deliver significant airflow while maintaining low noise levels. Silent Series R2 fans are available in sizes from 40mm up to 140mm.
All new Silent Series R2 fans are equipped with high performance hydraulic bearings, increasing both fan performance and reliability. Each fan 60mm and larger is packaged with both 4 metal screws and 4 rubber screws to ensure maximum fan-mounting options. Using the rubber screws allows mechanical decoupling from the case itself, reducing vibrations and decreasing the noise level (40 and 50mm feature metal mounting screws only).
The cable on each Silent Series R2 fan is fully sleeved for effortless cable routing and enhanced aesthetics.
Pros: Designated as silent series and it really is, unlike the Evercool one I purchased at the same time.
Cons: I would have appreciated an adapter power cable to plug it in with, but I had one that worked in my junk drawer.

Silence is golden
Pros: It's incredibly quiet for an 80mm. I picked it up to replace an OEM case fan with something that would move a little more air. The cable thing is long enough to reach the fan header at the bottom of an mATX board, no issues.
Cons: Really none at all.
Other Thoughts: This was a gamble for me, I've never bought a Fractal Design product before. Now, I'll definitely consider them in the future.
