Pros:

Fan moves a good amount of air for the noise it makes. The real thing that impresses me about it is the power that it has pressure wise. This fan can move air through a Black Ice GTX 560 and still have enough to start turning the other fan up top (if you have one) when it is off. The three rings (red, white, and blue) are easy to remove and change out. I appreciate the fact that I can choose which color I want it to be. The fans are not TOO loud, but I am not one to pay much attention to noise to begin with.

Cons:

One of the biggest cons about these fans is the wiring itself. It's NOT bad....so if you are one to just drop in fans then its a non issue. However, if you are like me and plan (planned) to sleeve the cables on these things you are in for a headache. The cables are thin and flat much like a ribbon cable. They are not just the standard multicolored wires like we are used too on lesser fans. If it were not for the fact that this makes these hard to sleeve this would be a con. Just a *con* from my perspective.

Other Thoughts:

If you need fans to move a lot of air (like a case fan) then these are not the fans to get. IF you need a fan to push air through a restriction then these are great fans to use. I have two Black Ice GTX 480's and one GTX 560 with these mounted on both sides and let me tell you, these bad boys will move some air through those monstrous rads. I have the two 480's bringing air in and the 560 exhausting air on top and if I cut power to the fans on the 560, the fans from the two 480s will still generate enough pressures to move both sets of the 560s fans with decent pace. Its pretty amazing. Of course this is at a full 12v. I have not run these fans undervolted yet. That will happen soon enough though.
