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

COUGAR VORTEX PWM 120mm Fan: PWM-FUNCTION

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 eggsI have 24 of these!

Pros: Silent, massive airflow, great build quality, reliable, looks great!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: I have 24 of these in a Rosewill BlackHawk Ultra. I removed all of the fans that came with the case and replaced them with these, filled every other fan slot available with these and setup a 4 fan push/pull for my H100i. It is INSANE how much air these things move while being silent. I was worried that a PC with 24 fans would be loud but I hear my graphics cards over these - literally. Not to mention I'm going straight to molex with these so they are running at full RPMs. Finally, I ordered 2 extras because I figured there was no way all of them would work right out of the box. I was wrong. Every single one worked without any issue at all so now I have two extras. Love these things!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Very cool and quiet! This fan is just as quiet if not quieter than my old sleeve bearing Thermaltake that produced half as much CFM. I used the rubber mounting pins although I can't imagine the fan causing noise using screws. I love this thing and I'm buying another!

Cons: NONE!

Other Thoughts: I put a drop of soap on the pins for lube and still had to use pliers to pull the rubber pins through the hole but no biggie. The rubber pins don't give it a very tight fit against the case versus using screws.

2 out of 5 eggsDid not last

Pros: Looks are good, runs quiet, has decent specs

Cons: The product description claims 300,000 hours or like 34 years..mine lasted from April until October or 6 months. The fan makes a terrible noise while running so I just unplugged it, and it's also too late for RMA or replacement. I'll try a different brand at a lower price point.

Other Thoughts: Premium fan cost at value fan performance. This cost $15.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper-reliable, quiet, efficient, hot-looking fan

Pros: I use these fans as both case fans and CPU cooler fans (for i7 desktop CPUs). These run very quiet, but they are very efficient and reliable. The Cougar fans do not transfer vibrations, due to vibration-absorbing inserts located around mounting holes, so no special anti-vibration measurements are needed. Even the power/control cables are nicely made and sleeved.
Overall, a great, sturdy, cooling fan

Cons: So far I could not find any Cougar-brand fans smaller than 120mm or larger than 140mm. These are the most popular fan diameters, though, so I am not really worried about this.

Other Thoughts: No current production Cougar-brand fan could ever beat a good old Nidec Beta V fan, but keep in mind that the Nidec fans are nearly three times wider and feature no vibration-absorbing elements. I still like these, though.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worth the extra money for a quality fan. Moves a massive amount of air across my Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo.

Cons: None yet!

Other Thoughts: You will save money in the long run buying quality fans. Cheap fans never last and move considerably less air! Just something to keep in mind!

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet yet powerful fans

Pros: I added 3 of these to a Roswell case that came with 5 fans. These fans are so much quieter than then the case fans and they move twice the air as any other fans in the 120mm class. when I picked them up @ only $9.99 each, I'm kicking myself for not getting more back then.

Cons: none

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.
