3 out of 5 eggsDecent, but would avoid

This review is from: COUGAR 12CM CFD Blue LED Hydraulic (Liquid) Bearing Ultra Silent Fan 1200RPM, 64.4CFM, 16.6dBA - Retail

Pros: -Good price
-Good color selection
-Looks good
-Worked out of the box for 7 months

Cons: -Took a lot of adjusting not to buzz
-Started making noises 6/7 months in

Other Thoughts: I would just suggest throwing down the money for a better fan than this. If you already spent money on quality parts for your PC, I would say buy some Noctua fans. If you are going strictly for budget, these will do just fine. Just don't be surprised when you replace them one by one as they go out each month.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet Fans

This review is from: COUGAR 12CM CFD Blue LED Hydraulic (Liquid) Bearing Ultra Silent Fan 1200RPM, 64.4CFM, 16.6dBA - Retail

Pros: Running four of these Cougars as intake fans. They are inaudible at max rpm's and deliver adequate airflow. They have an appealing design in case and project nice colors. They come with rubber or metal screws. I have some with the rubber and some with the metal, neither cause vibration noises.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsThis fan is sick!

This review is from: COUGAR 12CM CFD Blue LED Hydraulic (Liquid) Bearing Ultra Silent Fan 1200RPM, 64.4CFM, 16.6dBA - Retail

Pros: SERIOUSLY at FULL RPM you ONLY HEAR THE AIR
-No ugly stickers on the intake side.
-Stylized fan blades to cut the air.
-Is quieter than the Aercool Dead Silence fan, but it runs at 300RPM less.
-Another comparison to the Aerocool Dead Silence: The RUBBER on the corners on THIS fan actually act as RUBBER WASHERS. On the Aerocool, screws simply SPREAD the rubber away and tighten onto the plastic.
-The semi opaque smoke black plastic looks great with the LED's on

Cons: Had to buy from a site that had Fedex because this has moving parts.
Not a con for the fan!

Other Thoughts: I actually bought more later after I was _BLOWN AWAY_ at the quality of this fan.

5 out of 5 eggsPrepare to be amazed!

This review is from: COUGAR 12CM CFD Blue LED Hydraulic (Liquid) Bearing Ultra Silent Fan 1200RPM, 64.4CFM, 16.6dBA - Retail

Pros: I would rate this one 10 eggs if the ratings permitted. For all practical purposes this fan is totally silent and circulates a substantial amount of air. I have a Dell Dimension E510 with a 12 CM fan that pushes air across the CPU cooling assembly. When CPU usage became intense the original Dell fan would get noticeably louder. However, that issue was solved by attaching the Cougar 12 CM fan to the other side of the CPU cooling assembly. Now the original fan pushes air across and the Cougar fan pulls air through. The result is that having two fans running is substantially quieter than the single original Dell fan. The system is practically noiseless even with intense CPU and graphics usage.

Cons: None. Except that it would have been helpful if they had supplied black cable ties to mount and secure the fan. I did not use the screws or rubber grommets. I had to mount the fan to the plastic chassis that surrounds my CPU cooling system. The black cable ties worked great.

Other Thoughts: This fan is beautiful with the blue LEDs. Good quality. Sturdy no vibration. Cools CPU substantially. I have read several criticisms that this fan is not PWM. Since this fan is totally silent it is not necessary. By running at a steady constant speed this fan causes my existing Dell fan to work much less. The two fans running together are almost unnoticeable. The system is very quiet. The 4-pin adapter was very helpful.

3 out of 5 eggsGood product if you don't get a lemon.

This review is from: COUGAR 12CM CFD Blue LED Hydraulic (Liquid) Bearing Ultra Silent Fan 1200RPM, 64.4CFM, 16.6dBA - Retail

Pros: Quiet
Moves air effectively
Blue LEDs looks sharp

Cons: overall construction of product seems slightly under quality

Other Thoughts: I purchased two (2) 120mm and one (1) 140mm Cougar blue LED case fans for my rig. I purchased and installed these fans around March 2015. Already, one of the 120mm fans is failing and needs to be to assisted in rotating by a push from my finger. But even then, the fan barely spins and hardly moves air as intended. It's rather disappointing. But I really like them when they work correctly.... They keep my rig nice and frosty. I might have received a lemon. Nonetheless, still let down. 3/5 Eggs.

3 out of 5 eggssilent but deadly...or they just die so it seems

This review is from: COUGAR 12CM CFD Blue LED Hydraulic (Liquid) Bearing Ultra Silent Fan 1200RPM, 64.4CFM, 16.6dBA - Retail

Pros: These are pretty silent compared to the cheap fans I had before though they are crazy loud compared to a noctua. I bought 7 of these fans 1 of which was doa and 1 other has died already. I've owned these for about 3 months now. They are pretty though. It's hard at times to notice when these die because they still light up so you'll have to watch your temps to notice when they die.

Cons: I'm posting via mobile so I just wrote one review.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Fan

This review is from: COUGAR 12CM CFD Blue LED Hydraulic (Liquid) Bearing Ultra Silent Fan 1200RPM, 64.4CFM, 16.6dBA - Retail

Pros: Very quiet fans. I'm running 8 of them with my computer right next to me.
Two arn used with a Corsair H80i cooler. The fans that came with the cooler do move about CFM more air but at the cost of 15+db of noise.
They move enough air to keep a Sandy Bridge 2600 running at 60 degrees Celsius max at 100% CPU load & the fans controller set to about one-half .
Very nice deep blue LED color, more of a Pacific ocean blue that the lighter blue we usually see on LED fans.

Cons: None that I see so far.

Other Thoughts: I have owned liquid-bearing fans before, probably 8 years ago. Those fans were very delicate and if they were not cleaned regularly, they would break and the liquid in the bearing would spew into the case.
So far, so good with these. They seem much more durable. They pass the cat test.
The cat test being that my cat can pay the rotating fan without breaking the fan or injuring himself. The previous liquid bearing fans would have failed miserably.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the money!

This review is from: COUGAR 12CM CFD Blue LED Hydraulic (Liquid) Bearing Ultra Silent Fan 1200RPM, 64.4CFM, 16.6dBA - Retail

Pros: These are stylish, and have a great color to them. They aren't lying when they say ultra silent! Easy to install.

Cons: The only issue i had was one of the connectors was pretty tight but that's not a huge deal.

Other Thoughts: Got 4 of these to replace my cheap old ones in my case and I can say it was worth every penny. No longer sounds like I'm turning on a vacuum cleaner.
