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

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 eggsDoes the job well

Pros: I try to use these in every build I can. They put out a good amount of air and are pretty quiet. I have yet to have one fail after a couple of years.

Cons: Can't think of anything bad to say yet. - Will update if something bursts into flames.

5 out of 5 eggsJust wow...

Pros: This is an awesome fan. I found it very easy to install. SUPER SUPER Quiet. At max RPM's (1500) its still barely noticeable. The way the fans are shaped and grooved makes a big difference, it focuses the air better and moves alot of it. I used this for an intake fan for the front of my case, could not be happier, moves air, stays silent, long life span. It's rated for 300k hours, thats 34 years. Just wow...

Cons: None so far with the product. The shipping was awful tho.

Other Thoughts: Shipping was horrible. It had free shipping, so i took that. normally it take like 3-4 days for anything i order on newegg to arrive, been that way since 2008 when i ordered my first product on here. I ordered this on the 2/26/2016, it showed up today 3/8/2016. I found out the free shipping method this time was shipped out through DHL. first and last time I use them, next time ill just pay extra for ups, they are at least reliable.

5 out of 5 eggsCool, quiet, great value!

Pros: - A few bucks less than the competition these are a great deal for hydro-dynamic-bearing fans
- Super silent can barely hear them at idle and load
- It's literally freezing in my case

Cons: - Nothing I can think og

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case fans!

Pros: Super easy to install
Barely noticeable sound

Cons: The rubber mounts are a bit annoying, but I used the screws on one and it doesn't make any vibration noises

Other Thoughts: Purchased 2. Once I turned my computer on they both were going at around 1500 rpm for some reason. Used fan expert to tune them and now they run nice and quiet. My computer has never been at lower temps

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fans, decently quiet, full range of PWM control

Pros: -My whole build is Black and Orange, so these mixed with the LTT edition of the Noctua NF-F12s fit my build perfectly
-They are not quite as quiet as the Noctuas, but they are still much quieter than the average fan
-They allow for full-range PWM control, from a bit less than 300 RPM up to max
-The cable is nicely sleeved and is pretty long. This was a big bonus
-Includes a splitter, that is also nicely sleeved

Cons: -The rubber vibration dampening material is ok, but not as effective as having something that goes around the edges. Or, I guess making it thicker so it actually comes into contact with the surface would help, too
-Black screws would've been nice. They are black fans, after all
