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 eggsWow! Quiet amd refined,

Pros: I bought two of these fans and they are the most quiet and fluid fans I own, they come with the rubber attachments for moutning the fan to a case panel, they also come with standard fan screws.

Cons: No cons I found.

5 out of 5 eggsA review on a fan lol

Pros: This fan is so quiet and I tried looking my best for fans to get this

Looks pretty cool I guess I don’t see it in my case

Cons: Was making a sound when I first got it but its fine now

Other Thoughts: I got this and a 200 megaflow fan from coolermaster for my top fan and this is the quietest PC I ever seen even when gaming. On idle all my fans turn off and I own the RM series power supply so that fan never turns on below 400 watts which my equipment doesn’t use that much power at load.

I use this fan to replace my fan that came with the 212+ evo heat-sink works really well.

5 out of 5 eggsThey're my go-to

Pros: - I have run no less than four of these in my main rig going on two years.

-Not dead-silent, but probably one of the best fans you'll find in regards to flow/decibel ratio.

Cons: -You either love or hate the orange. Cougar does offer fans in black though.

Other Thoughts: I'm not quite sure what another reviewer was talking about in regards to using these mounted horizontally. It's possible that he got a bad sample; I've got two on the top of my case that are near silent.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fans

Pros: Great fans, if you see them on sale buy them!

Cons: Can be slightly louder than "silent" fans but these guys move more air and are still quieter than normal fans.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Fan

Pros: Good Looking
Well Made
Quiet
Pushes a good amount of air

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Newegg got it to me in three days. I can always count on you guys for a good selection, and decent prices.
The fan is much better than the Coolermaster that came stock in my HAF 922 (rear exhaust). I put up with a noisy, failing fan way too long. I can't believe how good it is to have a quiet PC again.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Well constructed, sturdy fans that run very quietly. Installed 2 on the top of my Cosmos 1000 to replace 2 CM fans that had gone. World of difference. I need good pressure and a strong fan to maintain temps in this case and these have done the job better than the old CMs did new. I'm down 6c avg over the failing fans and 2c avg down over when they were new.

Cons: Orange. Not a con for me, my case has no windows and you cannot see the fans but this is an obvious con for someone with a color scheme.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a molex to 3 pin adapter and rubber pins for extra silent mounting if needed. Very complete kit. Will be replacing 2 more fans with these shortly.

5 out of 5 eggsCougar 120

Pros: Pretty orange really stands out (mine is in place to help an Asus Radeon R9 270X stay even cooler which seems to be helping out a bit-

-Like my other cougar fans in my case doesnt make much noise

-Moves more are at a concentrated air flow with a lower RPM requirement

-Supplied 3 pin to molex adapter
-Supplied case screws or rubber pin options which further absorb vibration noise
-Good quality construction

Cons: None really other than price, they can be a little high but in this case its okay because its a great respected brand.

Other Thoughts: These fans are only rated at one speed, the 120 according to my motherboard controller is running the blue LED versions at 1400 RPM but its rated for 1200 so an automatic gain if the motherboard supplies the voltage. Keep in mind this model and the LED type are pretty much the same product so I expect the same results with any of mine currently installed.
