1 out of 5 eggsBroken Fan Blade

Pros: Relatively silent. Decent price.

Cons: Shoddy construction. When transplanted this fan to my new gaming case, I noticed a small hairline crack on the housing. I am a system builder and have over 20 years experience building custom workstations and gaming rigs. I'm disappointed in the quality and service. The manufacturer has yet to return my phone calls for a replacement.

Other Thoughts: So much for the 10 year warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsUsed this fan in my Mac G4 AGP tower

Pros: Fit exactly into my G4 main case fan shroud, using the rubber mounting tabs to isolate vibration. I had the option to use original screws, but the flex posts are nice and easy. Put a tiny bit, like 1/4 drop of dish soap on them, they then easily pull into place. Don't soap the part you pull, just the fatter part that snaps into the hole. They fit the existing holes fine.

Cons: Fan model only comes with a three wire connector. My old Mac G4 tower has a two wire case fan, but I simply cut off the last one inch of each lead, new and old fan, and soldered on my old connector onto the new fan, black to black, red to red. Ignore the yellow lead, just fold it back and cover it with shrink tubing. The varistat control mounts in a PCI slot (you need an empty one available). The knob doesn't push down on the post very far after mounting in the PCI slot unless you file some of the skirt off the bottom of the knob, which is easy to do, then it's fine and works smoothly. Because of my mods, I probably nixed my warranty, but it's not a super expensive fan anyway.

Other Thoughts: Very happy with this fan and how it works. I was able to reduce speed about 20% and get a pretty quiet condition, with only about a three or four degree F penalty on processor heat, no big deal, still well within bounds. I sent some back and forth e-mails to Nanoxia plus photos regarding my connector mods, maybe they will offer a plug adapter for the older two wire Mac fans in the future, and make it really easy to install.

5 out of 5 eggsFinally

Pros: Airflow to noise ratio, durable bearing, quality, braided cable,

Cons: no native PWM connection

Other Thoughts: I've wasted so much money trying out different fans but they were all either too weak or too loud. This is finally the fan to keep. The airflow to noise ratio is just superb. The included fan mounts are a bit of a hassle to use though, especially if you are mounting the fan in a tighter space.

5 out of 5 eggsWell made, quiet fan.

Pros: I have an XPS 410 and I put one of these fans right up against it's heatsink blowing toward the back grill. I got a 10c drop immediately, and when I get an adapter to hook up the fan controller I can push it even higher. (it's on 5V rather than up to 12V now).

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I got two of these planning to make exaust fans out of them. Now I know how big a 120mm fan actually is :P So I got a spare, but with the way these fans are rated I don't know if I'll ever get to use it :D

5 out of 5 eggsGreat.. :]

Pros: Pushes air.
Green/Black color.

Cons: Controller knob was to fat to fit my pci-slot.. so I have them all just laying on my harddrive bays.. (i could mod it.. but I'm a bit busy)

Other Thoughts: Overall it's QUIET.. .. i have 120mm and 92mm from nanoxia.

I even suggested they get it on newegg.. (I had to buy elsewhere.. before it came into stock)

Buy it.. You won't regret.. (plus this thing uses nanotech for their berrings.. their watter-proof.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb

Pros: -Solid design, cool looks.

-Lacks LED's (I don't like LED's really).

-Pushes lots of air relatively quietly. (Full 2000 rpm speed rated at 36-some-odd decibels)

-Rated for long life and smooth operation.

- Sleeved power cable makes for easy routing / cable management.

Cons: Rubber "vibekiller" bolts are difficult to install, if impossible depending on your case. They can break/snap if you stretch them too much.

Other Thoughts: I own an Antec 1200 case, and replaced the two exhaust fans in back. Couldn't install vibekiller bolts in all places. The stock Antec fans are actually of comparable stats, but these fans make the case COOL to the touch. I have some real heat producers like an ATI 4850 graphics card, and a large cpu heat sink on top of a quad-core - so this is a big feat.

I absolutely plan to replace the remaining 3 front case fans. The price is a bit steep, but the thrifty shopper can find them elsewhere for a bit less. Even so, they're worth every penny in my opinion.

Also, there's an FX+ series available in Europe that adds the PWM function if that's important to you.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Don't let the weird name scare you - this is a serious fan. Construction is good and strong, and the wire tail comes pre-wrapped, making it much easier to route the wires where they need to go.

The included fan controller works well, and its easy to make small adjustments to fan speed if that is all you want.

At full bore though, this fan moves A LOT of air. I don't have a number to reference, but my case is running significantly cooler with this fan pushing air out of the case. Fan has been running at full fore since installation as a "burn in" test, and so far, it works like a charm!

Cons: Not sure what to do with the included rubber "bolts", as no instructions come with the unit. I'll call tech support and find out.

Other Thoughts: NOTE: This may seem obvious, but the to make the included fan controller fit, you need to pull the knob off the controller before it will fit through the PCI holes in your case. Just pull straight back on the knob to remove it, and push back into place when ready.
