Oil surface tension and hydrodynamic pumping forces provided by grooves, no friction, extremely quiet

HYDRO-DYNAMIC-BEARING TECHNOLOGY

We defined HDB to Hydro Dynamic Bearing. An oil seal design that has a higher reliability and advantage than conventional fan motor design.
1. High revolution precision, low vibration noise
2. Fluid seal design provide extremely long life span
3. Surface tension effect, runs more smoothly with no friction, extremely quiet
Fluid seal design is achieved through the use of oil surface tension and hydrodynamic pumping forces provided by grooves. Bend area is centralized oil and prevented oil leakage out of motor (oil leakage is main problem of sleeve bearing, short life time) . Friction between shaft and HDB will be down due to herringbone structure reaction(friction between the metal is disadvantage of ball bearing, noise & waste heat problem). So HDB conquer sleeve & ball bearing disadvantage to become more reliable & quiet technology for Top-notch fan. Such design concept is successful and applicative on HDD, and we can see a reliability application in it.

HDB, Ball, & Sleeve comparison

Sleeve Ball Hydro-Dynamic
revolution precision mediocre good best
vibration noise mediocre loud quiet
life span (hrs) 30,000 50,000 >150,000
waste heat high high low
Cost low high high

5 out of 5 eggsFive years and still perfect.

Pros: Quiet
Reliable
Outstanding air flow for the sound rating

Cons: Don't offer 200mm size.
They hurt if you stick your wang in them.

Other Thoughts: Guys... I just don't write reviews. My system is now about 5 years old. I leave it on 24/7. I just tore the whole system down to check out the fans. All of my fans with sleeve bearings were toast - noisy or not working. I bought two of these Cougars for my H80 and they are still running like new 5 years later. They still have among the best noise:performance ratios I could find. The fluid bearning are no joke. If you buy these you will never have to replace them.

5 out of 5 eggsWow...

Pros: I am not one to spend $15+ for a single fan. However I needed something quiet and powerful for my new build so I gave this a shot.

This fan is designed to be quiet yet get the job done. I hooked this up in my Silverstone Temjin TJ08B-E as an exhaust fan and wow does this thing move some air!

-Hydro bearings
-Designed to be quiet
-Pulls a lot of air (at least in my experience as an exhaust fan)
-Even includes 3pin to Molex adapter (did not need)

I highly recommend this fan. My previous setup I ran the CoolerMaster 4pack of 120mm fans, and compared to those this thing is a leaf blower without the noise. I will be purchasing more of these in the future.

Cons: Cost, however this is justified given the quality of the design and performance of the unit.

5 out of 5 eggsBest fan money can buy

Pros: This fan is a high velocity low speed fan that just keeps running. I have 4 of them in my computer and have dropped my temps by 10F

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If your thinking about buying this fan stop and just do it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet, rubber grommets and rubber mounting plugs are great for a vibration free install. I have several of these for several months now and they work great with speed control on my motherboard although they really aren't loud at full speed anyway.

Cons: I have not had any problems with these fans

Other Thoughts: The rubber plugs are very easy to use you just need to keep tension on the tab until it seats. In some tight area's you may not be able to get a hold of the tab to pull it, using a needle nose pliers can work just don't tear the rubber.

5 out of 5 eggsHappy Owner

Pros: Air Flow
Quietness
Construction Quality
Inexpensive

Cons: Rubber mounts are somewhat difficult to install

Other Thoughts: I have four (4) of these installed in my case. They provide great airflow and are very quiet. The rubber vims on the corners are well padded and work.

The rubber mounts were tough to install sometimes. But are manageable, just have to have patience.

Overall, I am very happy with the fans and would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsUltra quiet fans

Pros: These fans are extremely quiet and flow a good volume of air through my case. They're optimized for silence with no tools needed rubber studs. They also come with metal screws, but I didn't need to use those.

Recommend these highly!

Cons: The molex to 3 pin power connectors aren't so great. The molex pins are slightly misaligned so you really have to force a connection in a way that makes me uncomfortable. I used the 3 pin connections from the fans to my mobo instead. Don't let this stop you. These are excellent fans.

Other Thoughts: Wish I had found these about a year earlier.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent Fan

Pros: Virtually silent, unique aesthetics, great price

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have had a few of these for some time now, going on a few years, with absolutely zero issues. I would definitely recommend this fan, and will continue purchasing these as long as they are available.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: I do not think these guys make a bad product, all is very top quality.

I have several cougar fans of many different variations and they are all superb.

Very much so, these fans are just excellent

Cons: none
