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 eggs

Pros: Sleek Design
Construction seems pretty solid.
Cables are sheathed in a rubber covering, so that's nifty.
Anti-Vibration Pads are part of the fan's design.
Quiet enough, though the difference between my CM 120's at 19Db and these at 17Db is probably so minute one really couldn't tell without a sound level meter.

Cons: Only real con other than the price (which is still cheaper than most other Fluid-Dynamic Bearing fans), is that the one I had to pull air in from the top made the most aggravating noise imaginable (envision a stadium full of vuvuzelas, playing distantly in the background). Flipped it around to an exhaust configuration and the noise was gone.

Now it's likely that was more a result of something something air vibration and the fan grating of the case itself, but still something one might wish to keep in mind if they're mounting one of these as an intake on the topside of their case.

Other Thoughts: Bought these to replace two Cooler Master Sleeve-bearing fans whose bearings called it quits after a year and a half (probably due to them being mounted horizontally instead of vertically). Will see how these do in the coming years!

5 out of 5 eggsNice fans

Pros: Pretty quiet, speed controlled by mobo, nice looking. Moves enough air. Made my case much quieter, and reduced temps.

Cons: Could move more air, and be quieter, but isn't that the case with all fans?

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome fan

Pros: Quiet and pushes a lot of air!

Cons: None what so ever. Except kind of tough to get the rubber pins things through so I ended up just using screws, no vibration though!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Crazy quiet

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a top mounted case fan that was starting to get too loud. I had to check that this was actually plugged into the motherboard because it's so quiet. I'm considering replacing all case fans with these!

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet at it's best

Pros: Just as described quiet and moves a ton of air.
Very well made.
Good price.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Replaced both my new computer case fans with these Quality fans that are controlled by the motherboard via 3 pin connectors on the board even though they are not PWM the MSI X99S controls the speed . these fans run at 50% most of the time.
I had purchased two fan controllers that was waste of money as I don't need them.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fan

Pros: Quiet. High air flow. Quality product.
Easy install as a side fan in an Antec 900 case.
Quietest fan in the case.

Cons: Price.

Other Thoughts: Should replace all the fans in the Antec 900 with this one, but then they would cost almost as much as the case.
Would by again.

5 out of 5 eggsThey move air, they are quiet, they don't shake

Pros: I have 4 of these in a CM Scout Advanced 2 case. They are all quiet, well balanced and work with voltage speed control just fine.

Cons: none
