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 eggsQuiet

Pros: I have purchased many different fans with low decibel levels but this one is the best. It provides a lot of RPM but is virtually silent. It also has a very long lifetime but I haven't had it for over a decade to confirm this.

Cons: -none

5 out of 5 eggsCan't be beat for the price

Pros: -easy install, they use the same rubber tack thing that Noctua uses, but these were infinitely easier to slip on
-incredibly silent, I put in three, removing two corsair stock case fans and then adding an additional fan and all you really hear is the moving air
-the price, at least in Canada these were the cheapest silent fans I could find, and they're working just as well as the one noctua I own

Cons: -Like a lot of fans, there's some unnecessary bulk especially around the screw mounts that made one fan install particularly difficult, where I had to remove my RAM before I could mount it to the top of the case
-not really a con just know, these fans are silent so they won't have as much of a cooling effect as others. Even with adding an additional fan, my temperatures haven't decreased

Other Thoughts: -As always Newegg shipping was phenomenal, and I would definitely recommend these fans to anyone who wants silent air flow. If you're in serious need of cooling buy something hi-flow instead

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy!

Pros: no sound at all with all 6 fan install to my pc. i not even sure it on anymore. pc running much cooler and use less power. i am very happy with this out all fan i ever own... i highly recommend getting this fan and replace stock fan!

Cons: only con i find is this fan will not run as fast as my old fan. but do not fear, it not really bad thing after all. with strong airflow is true and far make up for it speed.

Other Thoughts: for all it worth, the price is great and you can't go wrong with this fan. i not going bring rating down due to speed when airflow is far better than my old fan!

2 out of 5 eggsAnnoying

Pros: Worked great for a few months. Good speed and controllable. Very quiet when it was new

Cons: After a few months this thing is obnoxiously loud like someone is sticking a ziptie in it. It only happens for the first 0-10 minutes when the computer is first started. I usually can get it to stop by banging the front of the case really hard.

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?
