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

4 out of 5 eggsGreat flow, slightly noisy

Pros: Very high flow and pressure

Cons: Slightly noisier at the same RPM than 140mm stock Corsair fans which came with my Obsidian Series 550D case. Low RPM rumble which gets amplified within my case's large volume. Rumble is caused by out of balance impeller. Bought 3 fans to replace all 3 stock case fans, and they all exhibited this issue!

Other Thoughts: Excellent value if you want the airflow, watch out for rumble

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet fan

Pros: I got this to use as an exhaust fan in a mATX case. It runs great - it pushes out a fair amount of air and is really quiet. I also got the non-PWM version for use as a front intake fan.

Cons: It comes with rubber nubs that you can use for an anti-vibration mounting. I just couldn't get them in for the exhaust fan because I didn't have enough room to work with. They are such a pain to get on. It's not a big deal though, I just used the screws. It's nice that they include both.

Other Thoughts: I am happy with it and would buy it again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fan!

Pros: >Fairly quiet at normal rpms.
>Cheap (9$) on sale.
>Great build quality.

Cons: None really. Does get a little bit louder if you run it at max rpm, but honestly its nowhere near as bad as other fans I have seen running at maximum...

Other Thoughts: Wait for them to go on sale and you will get a great deal :)

5 out of 5 eggsawesome fan

Pros: Put this fan on my water cooler radiator and I wouldn't have it any other way. Moves an insane amount of air to keep my CPU cool

Cons: A wider variety of styles and maybe LEDs would be cool

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding fans

Pros: Quiet, move plenty of air, not bad looking in you're into orange.

Cons: The sleeving on the cable is pretty odd. It's not your standard mesh sleeve and feels more like a rubber coated cloth. It kinks when you bend it. That's about the worst thing I can come up with though.

Other Thoughts: I put two of these in pull configuration on my H100i running with the stock fans in push mode. I've got these set to ramp up faster than the factory Corsair fans since the stock fans can get pretty noisy at full clip. This setup has lowered the overall sound profile of the H100i by at least 10db and I'm not sacrificing any cooling ability in the process. I intend to pick up a pair of the black versions to replace the Corsair fans later since they're visible through the front mesh on my case.

5 out of 5 eggscool and quiet

Pros: Heavy quality made fans
Moves a ton of air
great looking as they are
PWM motherboard controlled speed

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: replaced the stock 120mm fan with two of these on my Cooler Master Hyper 21 EVO CPU cooler for in and out operation and WOW, Quiet and the fact that they are made to last is reassuring when closing the case cover.

4 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: These fans are solid through and through in both material and function. I didn't bother with the rubber "screws," as they're a major pita, but these fans emit more noise in the form of air than actual mechanical function.

There's no noticeable bearing grinding of any kind when the fan is vertical, and the cabling is very solid. It makes you feel like someone actually enjoyed waking up in the morning to make this fan.

Cons: These don't seem to like being placed horizontal (top fan) as much as vertical. I do notice what is either a higher vibration or minute bearing "ticking" when in this position. It's barely recognizable 1-1/2 meters away.

Other Thoughts: I can't distinguish the noise of other fans (water cooler block, and a couple other OEM fans) and what noise this fan may be making without practically putting my face near them.

The minor vibration/ bearing buzz aside, in real use this is never noticeable. I'll definitely pick up more of these to drop in and replace my remaining 2 OEM fans. The only issue is that I have a 140mm fan on my waterblock as well.

In the end, my system is dramatically quieter than my full stock config, and will certainly be quieter still when replacing the remaining 2 fans.

I don't have a means to measure Decibels, but like "bottom dyno's," my ears tell me I've lost half the noise as before.

My case is an Antec P182, which is already a considerably quiet case.

These are well worth the cash, but I wonder how they perform against other high end fans like Noctua's. I know people put money in everything but fans, but do your gear and your ears a favor -- get some nice fans! Air volume is noticeably improved.
