Designed for advanced users GELID Silent PWM fans provide additional airflow by using Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) to automatically adjust fan speed according to the CPU load. The fan can be idled down and thus be much quieter. An intelligent IC had been integrated into the fan’s PCB to exploit your mainboard’s BIOS software. This technology is more efficient and convenient than using an external fan controller to adjust the voltage.

Each fan impeller has been individually balanced using the latest technology to guarantee steady, unwavering operation. To add to the silence fan mounts replace traditional screws and are made of high quality, temperature resistant, extra long lasting rubber and stop vibrations from the fan motor from traveling into your PC case.

  • newegg Intelligent GELID PWM Control PWM (Pulse-width modulation) uses a digital signal to calculate and adjust to the appropriate cooling performance according to CPU and System temperature, without generating any heat during operation. Fan controlled by intelligent GELID PWM is more efficient than the traditional PWM fans.
  • newegg High Performance With the optimized fan blades, the GELID Solutions FN-PX12-15 120mm case fan delivers airflow of up to 58 CFM and high static pressure for impressive heat dissipation.
  • newegg Rubber Fan Mounts Included rubber mounts have been designed specifically to deal with fan-induced vibrations and are an ideal alternative to standard fan screws, leaving vibrations 100% decoupled from your PC case, ideal for building a very quiet or virtually silent PC.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent general cooling fan

Pros: Excellent quality
Pleasing deep. low-pitch hum at high speed
Standard 4-pin connector; no adapters, no extra wires.
braided sheath cable
Rubber mounts

Cons: Price
Lower CFM than many 120MM
All-plastic construction

Other Thoughts: This is an excellent general cooler for medium to large cases. It has lower CFM than most 120MM fans, but it is extremely quiet even at full speed, and it doesn't vibrate or emit a high-pitch whine like many cheap fans do. Overall its worth the price, but if you are building a small ITX case or need more airflaw, the Delta ACF1212 is the way to go and the only fan I'd recommend over this one.

However, it is louder than the Delta ACF1212, which is about the same sound pressure at 40% as the Gelid FN-PC12-15 at 100%. The Gelid actually pushes more air than the Delta at 40% as well. But the Delta has greater overall cooling capabilities and is the only fan with superior construction to the Gelid.

Avoid Coolermaster, Corsair, Arctic Cooling, Deepcool/Rosewill and most other fans with gimmicky blades, designs and wiring. Gelid keeps cooling traditional in the footsteps of Delta with a quality motor and a properly engineered conventional, balanced blade design.

4 out of 5 eggsNot that bad

Pros: Relatively inexpensive
Nearly silent
Cord is contained nicely in a sleeve type of thing.
Flow direction indicator
Adds some decent air flow into my box

Cons: Not a heavy weight, powerhouse fan. I have a 965be Phenom II X4 and the CPU fan is still working relatively hard in there (I'm using this fan as an intake). Not as much of a con as I thought, but the rubber grommet thingys used to attach this fan to your case, while different, were not as hard as some other reviews may suggest.

Other Thoughts: The rubber things:
Just have something to grab onto these things other than your fingers, I used a needle nose pliers. My hands run hot so they sweat a little. This helped me to somewhat lube and warm up the rubber a little before I tried to force these pieces through the holes. At first I thought, what did I get myself into here. But after I was done it just wasn't that bad.

So just plan out what direction you want your air flow to go, how you want this fan mounted (I had to travel a bit to the mobo fan plugin, there is a good amount of cord on this fan though), get the rubber into the fan first, then attach to your case. I removed the side of the case I was mounting on, seems like a no brainer but...

Once I had a plan going, I went to the manufacturer website. Although their directions are very brief, the few pics I did see helped kick start me a little faster. I found the pics in the FAQ section.

After that, I put the rubber into the fan first, grabbed the inside part and pulled with the pliers. Repeat for case mounting. You do have to pull pretty hard, but it goes. I was surprised it didn't snap. All of the sudden you get that moment of enlightenment and poof! Done deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fans!

Pros: Seem to be made fairly well, and push quite a bit of air. They pull more air than the bitfenix spectre, and spectre pros I had before, and are quieter. The price is extremely reasonable as well. At lower RPM's which from water cooling is what I'm at almost all the time, these fans are completely silent, no noise at all. When at a higher RPM these fans are not loud by any means, however they do emit a deep hum.

Cons: There is only one problem, and it's not with the fan. The rubber mountings are the only mounting mechanism provided, so when attaching to case, unless using long screws used to mount to a radiator or to the front of the case or something, you have to use these rubber mounting things that are short, hard to hold onto, and even a wrench wont pull them through (didn't have pliers during installation). They work extremely well after installed, but Gelid, please, fix this awful mounting system, copy fractal design's, it's much much better (and even theirs isn't that great).

Other Thoughts: The deep hum explained in the pros is extremely acceptable. I've bought maybe 5 sets of fans (could've saved money by just buying some noctua's initially) trying to find best price to performance, each one has had some sort of issue, either airflow, or way to loud, or caused an annoying noise. The hum at high to max RPM's is deep enough and subtle enough to be acceptable, and most of the time I'm running low RPM's or most of them off, so it's completely silent which makes me happy.

5 out of 5 eggsGood and cheap

Pros: Very good build quality, silent and cool. I like the rubber grommets. It makes a silent build even quieter, eliminates all vibrations.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Very happy with my purchase

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Inexpensive for a PWM fan.


Understated design

Cons: Concerns about its longevity?

Other Thoughts: Really impressed. Normally I buy fans in the $20-$30 range, but for $14 I feel like I got a lot of value. The fan seems really solidly made, the design isn't ostentatious (no garish LEDs or anything) and it seems to move a fair amount of air.

I'm a little concerned about people saying that they've had their die, though. I've only had mine for about a week now, so hopefully they'll continue to run well.

I'll definitely recommend these for people looking for a good fan at a low price.

3 out of 5 eggsGELID Solutions FN-PX12-15 120mm

Pros: Seems like a good fan, but I'm not too experienced in buying them. Seems reasonably quiet with a decent amount of air movement.

Cons: The rubber mounts that came with it were impossible to use. They fit on the fan fine, but the other side that goes on the case is bigger. Doesn't seem to make much sense to me. I eventually tried pulling it through with needle nose pliers until it ripped. I went to the gelid website and sent an email asking about this and got no response.

1 out of 5 eggsGrinding, Clicking Noise - JUNK!

Pros: Nothing spectacular

Cons: Very audible grinding/clicking noise in both fans at any speed. After dropping $30 on a pair of these, I am highly disappointed.

Other Thoughts: Can I RMA a fan? These things are terrible. I want my money back.

1 out of 5 eggsWish I bought a different fan

Pros: I bought a fan and they sent me a fan.

Cons: Took a long while to put the fan in the tower because of all of the rubber pins or whatever they are called. Was happy with the fan at first but only after a few months it started making noises. I am very disappointed that the fan is already noisy. I have to poke it to make the noise stop.
