This review is from: Prolimatech PRO-BV14 140mm Blue Vortex 14 Case Cooler
Pros: HUGE 98CFM Airflow, Silent, looks great, sleeved cable, and can be undervolted
Cons: No sleeving on back side of fan or on Molex adapter
Other Thoughts: The Blue Vortex 14 is possibly the best fan I have ever used. It is nearly inaudible, it blows an amazing amount of air, and it looks great.
The fan's 98CFM ought to be enough for even the most loaded systems. The fan can be undervolted and when done, makes absolutely no sound.
A nice touch by Prolimatech is the beautifully sleeved power cable. So many fans today do not have a sleeved cable. This can lead to tangled wires and an untidy build. The sleeving however, does not go all the way into the motor. This is not a huge problem, but a new model should include that.
A small thing I would have liked to seen would have been sleeving on the molex adapter, but it is not a problem that the wires are bare.
In conclusion, the Prolimatech Blue Vortex 14 is a great 140mm fan for $10. Every computer builder should have at least one in his or her system. This fan is definitely worth the money and I give it a 9.5/10
