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

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: *Looks impressive.
*Airflow is quite good.

Cons: *Rattles at both low and high speeds.

Other Thoughts: Judging by the other reviews, I'm far from alone with this issue.
I installed it in a vertical orientation, fan buzzed loudly when powered on then lowered in volume but continued buzzing when RPM decreased. I'm RMA'ing this.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very quiet at moving air. Reasonably priced. Easy to mount.

Cons: I hear a high pitched whine after installing this fan. Could be the PWM.

Other Thoughts: It's easier to install the rubber mounts than some think. Just get it wet, and Puuulll it through the case. After you have all 4 through the case, index the fan and start with mounts hardest to get to, and puuulllll them through the fan mount holes. The rubber seems to be plenty strong to complete the mount process.

5 out of 5 eggsBest fans you can buy

Pros: Everything, this fan moves more air than a standard ball bearing fan and does that quieter than a standard fan. I use these fans on my liquid cooler radiators and they are phenomenal.

Cons: You can't buy 4 for $10 like a standard fan, but that is expected when dealing with a high quality item such as this.

Other Thoughts: I spent a long time making a decision on which fans to buy for my new rig, and after owning multiple of these fans, I will never buy anything else. My new rig has 7 fans (4 120mm & 3 140mm) and it is more quiet than my old build with 7 120mm fans by a lot. My old PC sounded like a spaceship taking off and my new build with these fans is whisper quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsCOUGAR CF-V12HPB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan with Pulse Width Modulation (Black)

Pros: Bought 4 when those on sale. The fans works perfectly. I can barely hear the fans create any noise.

Cons: The only con is those noise adapters are so hard to pull in the right place

5 out of 5 eggsvery cool fan

Pros: this fan is very quiet , I am surprised how quiet it is, even at heavy loads. I also haven't seen temps as low as they are now.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: it's a great fan. I only wish I had bought more than one.
but yes will buy again as needed.

2 out of 5 eggsNoisy in a couple months.

Pros: Turns on.
Pushes air well.

Cons: Can't be used to blow air up.

Other Thoughts: Makes ticktick/wobble wobble noise after a couple months mounted on top of my case blowing out.

5 out of 5 eggsCool and quiet

Pros: High air flow, very quiet, and sturdy design. This is not your common plastic fan. The rubber pads by the screw holes make for vibration free operation. Very pleased with these fans. They are a little more expensive than some other fans, but well worth it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I wish they came with a bigger variety of LED colors, but one can't be too picky.
