5 out of 5 eggsAs Silent as Ezio Auditore on the job

Pros: These fans are SILENT!

The fans that came with my case a few years ago pushed air like they were supposed to... but they rattled and were loud.

After researching some new fans, I went with these... and I am glad I did. I can barely hear them at all at idle, and my computer is only 2 Feet from me when I am gaming.

Cons: The only Con I need to mention are the fasteners. They are rubber "screws" that you have to push through the fan mount and the case. One of them broke on installation.

As a side note on this... once you get them in, they eliminate any rattling or movement of the fans, creating an even quieter experience.
Not taking off an egg because there are many good products that are tricky / difficult to install, but serve their purpose well.

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor and order a few extra if you are buying alot of these fans like I was (I think the "screws" are around 2$ for 4)

5 out of 5 eggsAll the difference in the world

Pros: 1. These actually are quiet. I had a couple of stock case fans (made by cooler master) that these replaced. The noise level difference was utterly astounding. Comparatively speaking, I can't even hear these.
2. They're cheap, under $15 is a good deal.
3. They're 3 pin but come with molex adapters for the power supply should you need them.
4. Decent air movement. My temps before putting these in were idle at 30C and max load at 55C. With these in I get the same numbers. Same numbers, quieter fan = win.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I really don't have much to add. These are cheap fans that make little to no noise and move enough air that my idle and CPU temps aren't affected from the louder (albeit more powerful) fans they replaced. If they ever come back in stock, these are highly recommended. I have 2 of them as dual intake fans on my HAF 912 and they do the job I ask them to do: intake fresh air into my case to cool my components.

Nuff said.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Fans

Pros: Super quiet. Easy installation with the rubber pull tabs.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: These fans are amazing. Can barely hear them and the CFM is good. They're installed with some funky rubber pull tab things which I'd never seen them before... but the installation was easy.

I can't recommend these fans highly enough.

5 out of 5 eggsCool and Quiet

Pros: Fans are very quiet. The sound they do make is a low and soft hum
Comes with Rubber mounts
Sleeved Cables
Low CFM keeps case from getting dustier than with other fans
Comes with 3-pin to molex adapters

Cons: Slightly pricey
Rubber mounts confused me at first
B/W color scheme might not be for everyone
Doesn't move as much air as other fans
3-pin to molex adapters have a pokey wire on the back of the 3-pin, be careful

Other Thoughts: The main thing that sold me on these fans was how quiet they were. These fans don't blow a huge amount of air, but I got 4 and combined with my other 2(noticeably louder) case fans it keeps my rig cool.
The 3-pin to molex has a sharp wire/connector left sticking out, which poked me when i was trying to fit it on the first fan. Unlike me, f you pay attention you can avoid it, and with the way these fans perform, I won't knock off any eggs. Even plugged into a molex on full blast these things are quiet, no undervolting required. Also, the official instructions for the rubber mounts are on the Nexus website under 'Accessories.' Scroll down and click on Silicone fan mount to see their diagram. It helped me at first.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet

Pros: Quiet
Works for my uses
Low CFM (Can be a pro/con depending on use.)
Includes 4-pin Molex converter
Fancy material cover over the wires (Not shown in pictures, but it looks nice. Wish all fan wires had it.)
Looks good

Cons: Low CFM (Can be a pro/con depending on use.)

Other Thoughts: My Antec 1200 came with all adjustable fans, but even at the lowest speed they were noisy in the back. The front fans have filters in front of them which dampen the sound a bit, and are actually quieter on full speed than the back ones are on low. (You can hear air passing through the fan.)

I just wanted something quiet as exhaust, but I also wanted low CFM to keep air pressure positive and dust out of my case. This works very well.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet!

Pros: - Extremely quiet
- Low RPM
- Solid / quality feel to the construction
- Flow and rotation indicators on housing
- Long power leads!!!

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: I purchased 6 of these 120mm fans for my Lian Li PC-D8000 monstrous case. They may not push a huge volume of air at high RPM's but that's not what I wanted them to do. They are super quiet; that's the key. Having 6 fans in combination blowing air over 20 hard drives, these things do their job perfectly. Exactly what they are intended to do. All 20 hard drives stay below 36ºC under high activity.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Great One

Pros: It's sleeved so it matches my modular psu cables.
It's Silent
It comes with silicon mounts/pins which after figuring out how to install, were actually a lot easier than screws IMO.
Comes with Molex adapter

Cons: It doesn't push much air at all but I'm using it as a bottom case fan to bring in a little more cool air i'm fine with this as long as it's quiet.

Other Thoughts: Plugged this into the Psu as i'm out of Mobo headers and don't want a fan controller still I can't hear it over the other fans in my case and could only hear the air moving when I put my ear to it.
I suggest this fan if you want a little more cool air flowing into your case without added noise but don't expect it to blow your socks off hehe.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet

Pros: Extremely quiet. I have several of them in a NAS blowing over the hard drives, and can just barely hear them when the drives spin down.

Also they seem pretty durable. Got them in mid 2010, and they've been running in a fairly dusty environment. So far, no problems.

Cons: None that I can tell

Other Thoughts: Since I'm staying in a dorm room and the only space for my NAS is under a desk, I wanted a couple of fans that would keep the drives cool without getting too loud. These work well.
