This review is from: Scythe SY1225SL12SL 120mm "Slipstream" Case Fan
Pros: Great fan. Creates a good amount of airflow and is almost completely silent. I can't even tell my computers on anymore! (By noise level that is). Very easy to install and comes with any wires or connectors you could need. I would recommend these to anyone.
Cons: None. 0. Really, this fan is perfect.
Other Thoughts: For me this was a no brainer. I had an old fan that was going out and had become quite loud and I wanted my computer as quiet as possible. So, I bought this fan and it is really, really quiet - quietest 120mm fan I've EVER used!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SilenX IXP-54-14T 80mm Case Fan
Pros: There's a long list of pro's for this fan. First off is the fact that it is a very, very quiet fan. I bought this fan because the bearings in my other fan went out and I decided I would like to go as quiet as possible. Well, I chose correctly. VERY quiet fan. Secondly, the fact that it is a VARIABLE fan and ONLY RUNS WHEN IT NEEDS TO. Most people who have written reviews are not smarter than the equipment they are working with. Read the title of this product: It is a VARIABLE fan. That means it spins when it needs to. That is why the thermostat is attached with the fan (yes, it's that long wire with the black tip). People assume the fan is not working since it doesn't immediately start. It's not suppose to. Also, comes with silicon screws to reduce any vibrations! They work wonderfully. I'm running out of room but there are many pro's for this fan. I absolutely love it and will use SilenX forever!
Cons: No cons what so ever. I've read in other reviews people say the life expectancy of this fan is only two years or so. Well, luckily the fan only costs 10 dollars and is possibly the cheapest part you will ever buy for a computer. Also, other fans will continue after two years but their bearings will go out and they won't work nearly as well and will make a lot of noise. So the life expectancy of these fans is no different than other fans. Only difference is these fans come with a 3 year warranty.. so you can do the math.
NO CONS! Absolutely wonderful fan!
Other Thoughts: I just wish everyone would educate themselves before leaving inaccurate reviews. These fans are great, some of the best I've ever used and I build at least 2 computers a year just for myself so I've used lots of different fans.
It is NOT suppose to spin right when you turn your computer on. It's a variable fan and spins when it needs to.
