Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Red LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: 3 pin is a big plus
moves a ton of air
static pressure optimized

Cons: SLEEVE bearing
very loud at full speed (1900-2090 rpm)

Other Thoughts: This fan works fine as long as you DO NOT mount it horizontally. The people complaining about the fan making noise is more than likely attributed to improper mounting orientation. I have owned 5 of these fans for about 2 years and only 2 of them failed as I had 2 exhausting air our the top of the case and that's when I did my research and found out that SLEEVE bearing fans should not be mounted horizontally. I now have 2 as INTAKE in the front of the case and 1 Exhaust at the rear of the case along side the I/O shield. 3 ball bearing fans at the top of case exhausting through 360mm radiator. The 2 intake Sickleflows are running at 60%(1200 rpm atm) through a filter while the others are at 40%. Fairly quiet at UNDER 60%. Anything higher WILL be LOUD!!! Please research fan bearing types before purchasing for you case as you will want best price per buck. Orientation DOES MATTER for SLEEVE bearing fans!!!

Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Red LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Quite cheap for the performance
Moves a ton of air thru filters or Radiators
Multiple colors to match your case design

Cons: If mounted horizontally fan will die quicker as it's a sleeve bearing fan
Quite loud at 100% with multiple fans
No fan dampening-it's a cheap fan so it's expected

Other Thoughts: I have owned 6 sickleflows and 3 of them died after a few months which I found out is because of the bearing type (Sleeve Bearing). These fans MUST not be mounted horizontally as it will cause the shaft to rub against its housing (top/bottom of case). Perform some research on fan bearing types and you will be rewarded with more knowledge on choosing the right fan. I am still happy with my purchase as i got them for under 6 bucks each during a sale so having 2 of them die doesn't really matter to me as it was just a "budget" purchase. The fans that died were on the top of my case as exhaust. Have 1 at the back (next to I/o shield), one in front as intake and a CM factory case installed bottom fan as intake.

GOgroove Pal Bot Portable Rechargeable Android Speaker with Dual High Excursion Drivers and Passive Subwoofer - Works with Apple, Samsung, LG and more Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops, MP3 Players
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Loud enough for use with tablets\phones etc
Small enough to fit in a backpack (warning)
No extra wires to get tangled
Long charge hold
Very clear sound with a bit of bass

Cons: Sooo delicate that if it tips over an "antenna" might break
Pretty much my only con at this point is how delicate it is

Other Thoughts: I bought it sub 20, and I would buy it again at sub 20. Definitely worth it if you are VERY careful with transporting it. Used it with my "work" laptop, lan party gaming pc, tablet and android phone. Worked great for what I put it through.
