Nice and Quiet Fan. One Gotcha... 03/06/2012
Quiet. PWM capable.
Deeper than the average 120mm case fan - Measure before you buy it!
I bought this fan due to it's PWM capabilities. I was planning on mounting in a case as an input fan (front of the case blowing in), with an Arctic Cooling 92mm PWM fan acting as an output fan (back of the case blowing out). The one thing I didn't do is consider the depth available for the input fan, and it turns out this fan is a little deeper than most, and would not fit in my case without the front grill jammed against the hard drive mounting rails. My bad for not measuring. However, I was able to use it in another case, and it works great. So you need to keep two things in mind when buying this fan. First, it is only meant to be an input fan, there is no way to mount it as an outlet fan. I already knew this, so no problem. Second, measure how much depth you have before purchasing this fan. If this F12 Pro fan is too deep, Arctic Cooling makes a standard mount 120mm fan, the model F12 PWM for around the same cost, which will work as an input or output fan.
