5 out of 5 eggs Quiet and Affordable PWM 03/04/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z300 92mm Ball CPU Cooler


Affordable, PWM, Low Profile, Easy install.
Super quiet ~700 rpm at low load/idle. Cools well at high load at ~2400 rpm.


Can be loud at full tilt, but that should be expected with it spinning at ~2400rpm. So not really a con, just a fact. Keep in mind, if you don't have/turn on automatic fan control it will spin constantly at full speed. Pretty much all coolers will do the same.

Other Thoughts:

I've been in the process of changing one of my old systems into an htpc/nas box. I got this to replace a massive 3 pin Zalman cooler that was unbearably loud ( I couldn't find the manual fan controller for it.)
I adjusted the settings in the bios for automatic fan control and this thing is super quiet at idle and while watching movies, which is when a silent fan really counts. Temps while watching movies using the cpu/software decoding (gpu decoding turned off to save power/noise) are ~50C which is fine by me.
I haven't done much gaming on the system yet, but I did some cpu burning and the temps were steady at ~75C after about 15 min.
All in all for $15 I'm very happy with this.
