Great Fan 02/26/2012
This review is from: Scythe DFS123812-3000 "ULTRA KAZE" 120 x 38 mm Case Fan
Push and pull quite a lot of air, are not half as loud as my previous fans and at the present time, these are doing what their supposed to do, cool.
At the present time none. Lets see where I'm at in 6 months.
What prompted me in buying these fan was a heat issue. I have a ThermalTake Armor+ and because of the size of this thing I figured the stock fans really weren't enough to cool it so I went with another fan. The bigger the better, right? Well, I found out different.
I just replaced my other 3 fans with these and even at full throttle, these are much quieter than my others. The dBa rating for the ones I replaced was 66.5 where the Scythe is rated at 45.9 so they are much quieter. The cfm rating for my previous fans were 252 where the Scythe is rated at 133 so I did lose cfm but I actually gained cooling. Strange isn't it, I always thought the more cfm the better the cooling. Guess I was wrong. Learning process.
Oh, one other thing, NEWEGG ROCKS!!!!!
