This review is from: COOLER MASTER Turbine Master MACH1.8 R4-TMBB-18FK-R0 120mm 1800 RPM Case Fan

Pros:

Alright this fan is actually decently quiet. I'm using it in conjunction with a 7970 Crossfire setup with no space between the card and it's really delivering cool air to the top card and keeping it nice and happy.

It moves a tonne of air, has a load of blades on it and is thin.
Looks pretty cool as well.

1800 RPM ± 10% as advertised.

Comes with a molex adapter so that is handy as well.
Long cable length so it can be put into very deep tricky spots and still be able to connect which is really handy. I run the cable underneath both of my 7970s and then up between the PCI bracket and the PCI slot onto the connector of my Biostar TA990FXE board beside the one molex.

The rubber pins used to hold it in place are very easy to install and hold really good; no need for screws but crews are included if you want to use them.

My favorite use for this fan so far is in the air duct inside of the Cooler Master HAF-X 942 in front of graphics cards.

Cons:

It's not 4-pin PWM sadly. This fan would be absolutely 100% perfect on PWM functionality that way it could be applied to many different CPU cooling options. Not docking an egg because I'm not using it for CPU cooling anyway.

It only runs at 1800 RPM, varying slightly higher/lower as identified by listening to it. Knew this before buying.

Aside from essentially the product details, there are really no cons.

Other Thoughts:

THIS FAN IS NOT NOISY.
Oh my goodness whoever individual thinks this fan is loud must be EXTREMELY SENSITIVE. Or a bunch of babies. Mahaha.

This fan is seriously over-exaggerated when it comes to noise. I was expecting it to be loud when I got it but when I plugged it in I was like "Wow. This fan is actually pretty quiet."

But no this fan is actually pretty decently quiet. Loud, is a 120mm standard fan running at 2200-2600 RPM like it did on my OLD computer motherboard. THAT was loud.
This fan is relatively quiet.

There is a slight buzzing noise but it is EASY to ignore. It's not annoying.

I've only had this fan for a few hours and already like it.
Give it a chance; you probably won't regret it.
