COUGAR VORTEX PWM 120mm Fan: PWM-FUNCTION

PWM-FUNCTION

PWM stands for Pulse Width Modulation. The 4-Pin connector allows the mainboard to control the fan speed from 800-1500RPM. Fan speed is controlled by the PWM-signal, which delivers a value between 0-100%, the operating voltage remains a constant 12V

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 eggsSilent Breeze

Pros: The soft rubber-like mounts isolate the vibration(noise) so there is no buzz or hum like many other fans. This thing blows a nice breeze.

Cons: I have none. I will buy more for future builds

Other Thoughts: I am not a fan of orange, I'd prefer clear or black, etc., but this is a utility product and it does its job very well and without necessary noise and vibrations all at a great Newegg price!

5 out of 5 eggsThese fans blow.

Pros: In a very good way. They are super silent and sturdy as heck! I accidentally dropped one out of the case and was very worried it wouldn't work properly afterward. Much to my amazement it is just fine!

I love the orange color, but it may not be for everyone.
These fans are almost completely silent.
Rubber pads for mounting surface.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The rubber grommets are quite hard to use and there was no instruction on how to use them properly. I just went with a screw.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet and powerful

Pros: So quiet I had to make sure they were actually spinning to verify they were on

Cons: Very orange. If you're concerned with aesthetics, they may not fit your color scheme if they are in visible fan slots. Personally, I love the orange.

Other Thoughts: Super quiet, move a ton of air. Connect them to your 4 pin Sys fan connectors on your mobo for increased air flow under heavy loads

5 out of 5 eggsgreat fan

Pros: These move a lot of air, are very quiet, and look good too. i like the rubber corners which cut down on vibration noise. and the MTBF is something like ~30 years of continuous use; this is a part i expect to reuse in future computers for years to come

Cons: none really, this model is even PWM

Other Thoughts: Case fans are more important than people think, its totally worth the premium to get a good one like this over the cheap generic case fans.

5 out of 5 eggsBuy it from NewEgg not 3rd party

Pros: It's a great fan. Very quiet.

Cons: Buy it directly from NewEgg not from a 3rd party thru NewEgg.
NewEgg want $15 ... look for item N82E16835553002

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very quiet
Strong airflow
Solid build

Cons: None so far, no difficulties installing

Other Thoughts: Really surprised by the push/pull of air by this fan. There was a real feeling of resistance when my hand was put behind fan. It was as though I stuck my hand out the window of a moving vehicle; I have to slightly push back against the force generated by this fan. Super quiet for the force it puts out. Super quiet for any 120mm fan

5 out of 5 eggsCan you hear it? NO!

Pros: Runs quiet and gets the cool air in and the hot air out.

Cons: None, sweet fans!

Other Thoughts: I was having some minor heat issues in my case. Got 2 of these boss fans, now my comp is running nice and cool and QUIET!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Fan

Pros: Very quiet and beats the heat. I installed this as an additional case fan on the side panel. No more heat problems at all. Would recommend for sure.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsstill blown away

Pros: Great, quiet cooling. What else could one ask for from a fan?
Moves a hurricane of air and keeps my CPU on chill.

Cons: None since i've owned them

Other Thoughts: these are my second pair of these fans. i liked them so much on my previous build, i decided to get some more to replace the noisy scythe fans on my older computer. all you hear is the whoosh of air flowing through the cooling fins and it's air flow you can definitely feel. These will stick around for future rebuilds i'm sure
