This review is from: Silverstone SST-FF122 120mm Fan Filter with Magnet (Black)
Pros: Screw holes line up nice for 120mm fans.
Magnets give added holding power (not sure if they work good without screws going through as one I have fastened with screws in between fan and mount and the other is on the outside held on by those rubber grommets that came with one of my fans)
I could see them being easy to clean. One of mine is, the other...not so much, lol.
They look tough. The one i have on the outside blends real nice with my case. Case is black tho, lol. Fit in really nice with those rubber grommets too, no gap between filter and case.
Cons: The screen looks a little too separated. I dunno if its gonna get as much dust as I want it to. Nit picking a little here.
Price? 8 bucks is a bit pricey for a little screen like this and few magnets.
Other Thoughts: I probably should have just skipped this because I didn't really have that much of a dust problem to begin with. I'm in my case so often I just vacuum it out whenever I'm in there. But once I start not needing to be in there so often, I suppose this will help my box's longevity.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Delta AFB1212HHE-F00 120mm Case cooler
Pros: Is a beast.
Deeper screws come with it
Real solid feel to it.
Enough cable on it to reach where ever.
Cons: Loud, get something else if you want quiet.
Thick, in my case, kinda limited my options to mount.
No sleeve on cabling, not a huge deal for me.
Other Thoughts: 4 eggs because I just got it. If it dies, will come back and subtract, lol.
This thing moves air let me tell you. But it costs you in terms of noise. I have an air conditioning unit right next to my computer and I can still hear this fan over the ac. Its not super noticeable, but I can still pick it out.
This review is from: GELID Solutions FN-PX12-15 120mm Case cooler
Pros: Relatively inexpensive
Cord is contained nicely in a sleeve type of thing.
Flow direction indicator
Adds some decent air flow into my box
Cons: Not a heavy weight, powerhouse fan. I have a 965be Phenom II X4 and the CPU fan is still working relatively hard in there (I'm using this fan as an intake). Not as much of a con as I thought, but the rubber grommet thingys used to attach this fan to your case, while different, were not as hard as some other reviews may suggest.
Other Thoughts: The rubber things:
Just have something to grab onto these things other than your fingers, I used a needle nose pliers. My hands run hot so they sweat a little. This helped me to somewhat lube and warm up the rubber a little before I tried to force these pieces through the holes. At first I thought, what did I get myself into here. But after I was done it just wasn't that bad.
So just plan out what direction you want your air flow to go, how you want this fan mounted (I had to travel a bit to the mobo fan plugin, there is a good amount of cord on this fan though), get the rubber into the fan first, then attach to your case. I removed the side of the case I was mounting on, seems like a no brainer but...
Once I had a plan going, I went to the manufacturer website. Although their directions are very brief, the few pics I did see helped kick start me a little faster. I found the pics in the FAQ section.
After that, I put the rubber into the fan first, grabbed the inside part and pulled with the pliers. Repeat for case mounting. You do have to pull pretty hard, but it goes. I was surprised it didn't snap. All of the sudden you get that moment of enlightenment and poof! Done deal.
