Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Roomy
High quality steel, not noisy
Quiet fans
Pushes plenty of air through.
PWM fans are nicer than non-PWM fans, and these are good PWM fans.
When the fan controller for my motherboard is set to particular values the front LED's have a slight flicker to them like dim blue candlelight. Sounds weird but looks awesome.

Cons: Installed everything 5 months ago, and if there was anything that annoyed me in the slightest, I cant remember it now so it cant have been that bad.

Other Thoughts: Awesome case. Wasnt too sure whether or not I'd like the front LED's when I got it, but they're not too bright and dim when the fans spin down so when computer is idle they arent very bright (assuming you are using fan controlling software and your motherboard has fan controllers

Xigmatek AOS (Aeronautical Oil System Bearing) XAF-F1255 120MM PWM Fan with Copper Bushing Axis Black Blade White LED
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Seem to push air well, not as loud as I was worried they'd be based on reviews.
Actually match the dBA ratings advertised (BUT SEE CONS BELOW), and seem to push plenty of air (though I cant say whether its actually 90 CFM or not).

Cons: Ok, so the other review stating that 40% PWM+ = 1900 RPM is correct. It would not drop below 1950 RPM hooked up to my 4 pin CPU fan plug on the motherboard, however switching CPU fan control from PWM to voltage in the bios allowed the auto fan controller to drop it down to 1400 RPM, (still not as low as I'd hope considering my temps were very low at idle, only 30 C). They arent too loud at 1400 RPM, but they are quite louder than I would like at 1950 when PWM is on.
They're much quieter at 1800, which I'm sure is where they were dBA rated at, hence why most of these reviews are probably calling them much louder than they're rated at.

If you bought some of these, just turn their controllers to Voltage instead of PWM and you'll be satisfied, but 2 eggs for the fact that they cant actually be run in PWM mode without sounding like a jet taking off. Going to try and get them replaced with some of the brands 140's that have much better ratings, if the company lets me, since I dont think I can have chassis fans be voltage controlled, and therefore these are useless to me as they arent actually going to be used on my CPU.

Hopefully Xigmatek learns their lesson and fixes this in the future.

Other Thoughts: The 140mm Xigmateks seem to have much better reviews, would recommend trying them possibly, as these fans DO seem to push a lot of air, but would definitely not recommend buying PWM fans that cant be used in PWM mode. Expect these to be discontinued shortly, and hopefully replaced with some that actually work in PWM mode.
