5 out of 5 eggsFantastic fan!

Pros: 1. Excellent quality
2. Uniquely designed pads dampen noise and they really work!
3. Long lasting
4. Comes with 4 rubber pins if you'd like to use those instead of the screws.
5. Nice coloring scheme

Cons: 1. The only thing I can tell you personally is you want to avoid the PWM fans at all costs unless you like hearing low frequency whining all the time, they are terrible.
2. Are these loud? Not really just use an inline resistor with 5v or 7v and it'll be perfectly quiet. All fans require one if you want silence period otherwise they run around 1000 rpms or 1200rpms (all fans) at 12v and it can drive you insane having 4 of those.

Other Thoughts: A few manufacturers take their work seriously, Cougar is one of them. The fans are absolute works of art and better than anything price/cost ratio-wise. I am completely impressed by their accessories which include a connector 3pin - molex, and the rubber pins. A must buy if you're building a new PC definitely!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Fan - Silent

Pros: Very Quiet, High Flow, Easy Install. Has 3-pin connector to attach to MoBo. Black is invisible inside case.

Cons: No PWM for 4-pin MoBo connections that regulate fan speed. Orange footpads on corners draw attention around corners of fan grating.

Other Thoughts: You can always use permanent marker to black out the foot pads. Overall this is a great fan- very quiet, no rattling or issues whatsoever after a year of near-continuous operation. I do wish it had PWM, though.

5 out of 5 eggsSoo much better than the stock fan...

Pros: Super quiet, perfect replacement fan for my Cooler Master liquid cooling system. Fit like a glove and actually keeps the tem cooler than the stock fan ever thought of. 32 degrees celsius idle, and 38 degrees Celsius under load.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this fan whether you're looking for airflow, or a replacement for a liquid cooling system radiator.

5 out of 5 eggsIs it running?

Pros: Is it running? OW! Yup, running.

Cons: OK, thinking . . . sharp blades, maybe?

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Have 6 of them in a case and together they are all still inaudible over the ambient (and almost dead silent) 22db noise of a house.

Havent had any issues in over 3 years with them; no whine, no stuttering, no failures.

Built in rubber dampers keep even the flimsiest of cases from resonating vibrations.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you are going to extend the leads on these fans, you will need to splice onto the existing wires. They, as with almost all others, do not have a sturdy enough pcb mounting point to survive desolidering the old leads and replacing them with new ones.

Also, I wish that the black version had black rubber dampers to give a totally blacked out look, but this is easily fixed with some masking tape and paint.

5 out of 5 eggsCouldn't Pass Them up for the Sale Price

Pros: Good air flow, quiet (the only fan I can hear is my CPU fan), and sturdy. Fans installed easily, and came with everything you'd need.

Very happy with this purchase. I bought two to replace 2 of the stock fans in my Rosewell Challenger case at a very good price (around $10 each on sale I believe).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't know that it was necessary as I don't do anything intense on my PC, but I bought these two fans for my first budget build. I feel like they push a bit more air, and I was glad to get rid of the LED fan I had in the front.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper quiet

Pros: Bought two of these, one for the front, the other for the back. Combined I have 5 fans in this case and it is far more quiet than the XP machine it replaces. Even at low speed you can feel the front fan drawing in air.

Cons: None
