5 out of 5 eggsFollow up Review and New Fan

Pros: I bought this about a year ago, and it still working strong. I just bought another one of these to replace the exhaust fan (The two Deltas I have on my hyper 212+ blow so much air my Excalibur fan couldn't push the air outside fast enough).

Very powerful fans and will probably last the lifetime of the PC, if not longer.

These fans have a great PWM Range, able to go down to 490 RPM (about 18% fan speed, where it is dead silent) all the way up to max RPM at 3700 RPM.

These fans use ball bearings which are some of the most durable bearings for PC fans.

They give you mounting screws for it now.

The sheer fear you can instill into people by jumping the fan speed to 100% while they're next to your PC. Also, no other fan will ever come close to making your PC sound like a jet or putting out this much airflow.

Cons: None, unless you really nitpick the packaging, but hey, I'd have a high quality fan than packaging.

Noise, but anyone should know this isn't a con since the fast is fast and loud.

Your room may be hotter since heat is being taken away from the heatsink at a faster rate.

Other Thoughts: Before, these fans didn't come with screws, but I guess they added them in now. To honest, if you are in the market for $30 server fans, then you more than likely can afford screws for them if you don't have them already.

Also, as stated before, do not attempt to turn these on while holding them. It's just too dangerous.

I'm definitely way too scared to place my hand anywhere near my Hyper 212+ (Two of these as push / pull on it) and even more so in the space between the heatsink and rear fan (Which is now this fan).

75C at 60% fan speed, which isn't that loud.
Intel i5 2500K at 4.6 GHz, 1.396 vCore, using Intel Burn Test at Max, about 14 GB of RAM for a 16 GB setup.
At 100% fan speed, it is loud, but the system will never get above 65C using the same stress test.

5 out of 5 eggsCalm to Category F-5

Pros: Powerful. Real powerful
Quiet, low-voltage idle
PWM Controlled

Cons: Loud at full speed, duh

Other Thoughts: Deploying 2 on the floor of a vintage Thermaltake Armor+ VA 6000 SWA all-aluminum supertower chassis as intake push fans attached to a Silverstone TD-02 240mm Radiator cooling system on 4930k Intel. 2 Corsair SP 120mm pulling on top of radiator.

What I like best about these fans is their low starting/idling voltage. 20% seems to be no problem. They can go so slow you can almost read the labels on the hubs. These fans are NOT loud if PWM controlled. Running them flat-out only added noise to the system without enhancing the cooling much. Note this radiator is 45mm thick, YMMV.

Be aware these fans are 38mm thick; if using machine screws instead of standard self-tapping get 42mm length at least. Measure mounting location for thickness first.

4 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!

Pros: Improvement in airflow for any cooling need; (CPU Heatsink, Case fan etc.)

Cons: LOUD! But I knew before I purchased it would be.

Other Thoughts: Not really sure if this is a pro or con for some people it would vary but these are really thick fans so keep that in mind when fitting them into a case or anything.

Recommend having some kind of fan controller software because these fans are LOUD! I got them running on low where I can bare, and its still cooling my CPU like a beast.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW Does this thing move some air!

Pros: Blows hard and blows fast.

Cons: Loud, but you should have known that.

5 out of 5 eggsWithout limits

Pros: The 4 pin connector on this fan and a compatible main board will allow you to adjust the minimum RPM and the target temperature. This fan’s larger blade size lets it move lots of air at lower RPMs. Mounted on a NZXT-T40 cooler, at 37% RPM, on an overclocked i7 2600K, I set the target temperature at 114°F (40°C) and I never hear this fan. Almost all main boards will allow fans up to 2 amps, so this fan is perfect for drastically improving a single fan cooler. At higher RPMs, this fan can get loud, but does so only when the CPU is clocked high and ran hard. If kept under 120°F, my i7 will have a long life and run well. I like my computer to be quiet, but I don’t want to compromise the cooling; this fan gives me the best of both worlds. With this fan, my i7 will never see 140°F.

Cons: The good thing is also a bad thing; this is a big heavy fan. The fan is mounted in my computer to blow air toward my memory and also keep it cool. I had to do this because the heat sinks on the memory were too tall for me to mount the fan on the memory side of the cooler. I normally like to configure my fans to blow air out the back of my case, but to use this fan, I had to make a compromise. Not all compromises turn out bad.

Other Thoughts: Used correctly, use will probably never hear this fan, but under extreme use, it will fight hard to keep your CPU cool.

5 out of 5 eggsFastest cooling fans I've ever owned!!!

Pros: These fans absolutely ROCK!!
I have a pair of them installed on my Thermaltake Waterperformer 2.0 radiator cooler for my AMD FX 8150.

I have tried pushing the limits but I can't even get them to full RPMs because they're so efficient!!

Under max loads CPU temps reach 51C!

Extremely impressed!!

Hopefully they last a good while :)

Cons: DID NOT come with mounting hardware!!

They work great, but I had to go down to the hardware store & spend a couple bucks, just to get machine screws long enough to mount them onto my radiator cooler...

With the price of these fans, you'd think you could get some mounting screws with them.

I got 2 fans, neither came with screws? I'm pretty sure that's not a common practice.

Other Thoughts: Since these fans are abnormal size, it would be prudent to include mounting hardware that will work with them. The fans are 38mm thick so normal radiator mounting screws for standard sized 120mm fans aren't long enough, & the short stubby ones that are usually included with case fan purchases wont fit into radiators..

Something to think about..

3 out of 5 eggsNice fans but....

Pros: Don't know because I can't install them without mounting screws...

Cons: I got 2 of these bad boys, somewhat expensive for fans, but they're advertised to move some air, so I figured I'd give them a shot!

They're almost twice as thick as standard 120mm fans, so they're definitely a custom sized fan 120mm x 38mm..

So why did you not include the mounting screws you need?!?

How the heck am I supposed to install these monsters without screws??!?

Other Thoughts: If you're going to sell custom, high powered, extra thick fans, at an extra thick price, the least you could do is include some custom mounting hardware...

Pretty sad....

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful fan

Pros: It blows a ton of air. I have it on a hyper 212+. My temps are outstandingly low at high speeds, but at the tradeoff of loudness.

Cons: It's loud, but it's expected for the RPM.

Other Thoughts: Do not attempt to hold this fan in your hand at full speed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far.

Pros: Running two of these on a duel rad for my water cooled system. exellent temps, very good constand flow going threw it.

Controlling these with a 30Watt fan controller, can start up at 50% speed and stay there for as long as you want, but you may have trouble starting them at a lower rpm.

Cons: none atm

Other Thoughts: Maw speed, yes there abit loud, but thats why we have fan controllers :)
