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

1 out of 5 eggsSame issue as Jake R

Pros: It's a case fan.

Cons: Started making a pulsating sound similar to what Jake R mentions in his review. I tried to reach out to the manufacturer and they asked for pictures... and then said it looked like nothing was wrong. What a joke.

Other Thoughts: All the positive reviews about these fans had me try them out - but after having this one fail after only a few months. I'll look elsewhere for future fans.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper quiet

Pros: very quiet.

Cons: don't push a ton of air so if you're looking for gale force winds, look elsewhere.

1 out of 5 eggsWas great until.....

Pros: Started out quiet and moves air well.
They appear to be structurally sound.
Good looks, nice mounting options
Rubber in all the critical contact areas

Cons: It's only about a month and a half after I purchased this fan and it sounds like a HDD grinding away in my case. Actually, its louder. I just started running a SSD and now it is complete with its own HDD sound, coming from this fan! The 30 day RMA is up with Newegg (of course, right?) and so now I will attempt to get this taken care of by the manufacturer. It's frustrating in the fact that this is the fan at the bottom of my case and so now all the connections on my modular PSU must be unplugged in order to get this out for replacement.

Other Thoughts: I have three total of these, two have made noise intermittently and the one I need replacement for is making the same sound as an HDD only louder and constant. These would be absolutely great fans if they would stay quiet.

5 out of 5 eggsSo quiet that cats cannot hear them

Pros: Bought a pair of them to cool an overhauled system. Mounted them to the top of my case to draw fresh air in over my CPU's fan and sink. No problems whatsoever.

+ Quiet, bordering silent.
+ Good airflow

Cons: None that I can think of. They're fans. They spin, and they're great at it.

Other Thoughts: I keep my case on the floor, and my cats used to hop onto the top of the tower to then climb onto my desk when they wanted to "help" with my typing. Since I've put these fans in, they've stopped jumping onto my tower. They don't seem to hear the fans enough to notice them, and a few times they'd stick their claws out juuuust enough through the grille to catch the blades. They've managed to not hurt themselves thankfully, but it has certainly spooked them enough to not use my case as a stepping stone.

2 out of 5 eggsNice, BUT

Pros: Price, Air Flow & Design

Cons: Started to make noise after 6 months. It's like bearing is dry or something. Either a defect or 300,000 hrs that they say is lie.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Fan

Pros: Effectively replaces the stock fan in my various power supplies. In-line resistor brings fan speed down to a quiet tolerable noise level.

Also use these fans as case fans on my water-cooled rigs. Tie directly into the motherboard CPU fan header since it is unused and keeps the fan at a lower RPM.

Air flow is nicely concentrated and effective at cooling a targeted area at a distance.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased 3 of these fans over the past few years. They stand the test of time.
