CRYORIG QF120 Performance 120mm PWM Fan
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs very good fans 11/15/2015

This review is from: CRYORIG QF120 Performance 120mm PWM Fan

Pros: 4 came in my Noctis 450 case and I feel I hit the jackpot; they are quiet and move air. The front ones are right up next to a dust mesh and they move air. Only the sound of air moving.
The case does bow out around the exit fan metal case mesh so I figure they did that to keep the rear fan quiet so if one is pressed right up to it I don't know.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: They look simple, no frills, but work. Teamed up with a Cryorig air cooler and the Noctis case my computer is frigid. Cpu currently at 23C and case at 30C though it's a cold night. Fans are spinning at 684-767 rpm. PWM fans connected to a hub off the CPU cooler plug on motherboard is the way to go for us general use, moderate gaming guys.

Pros: Great cooling due to so many factors: pull out all those extra hard drive slots and I've got a wind tunnel from the front to my Cryorig H5A to the exhaust fan in a direct line. Space for extra fans or radiator on top (that I put fans into because I had them laying around and due to the PWM hub, they run quiet unless they are needed and can spin up, which even with full sun and heavy gaming they haven't once done. 55C during stress tests on 4790K and could just hear the fans. Of course there is the sound of air moving but it's slight and not at all unpleasant.
Lots of room for cables on back side (though good idea to hook up modular cables before mounting in shroud) and I had plenty of space around motherboard (ATX Gigabyte Black) to feed cable through convenient slots all over the place but mostly exactly where you want them. Sturdy, sexy, pictures don't do it justice. Sometimes I just reach down and stroke it because it feels so good. If you get one you'll understand.
Rear LEDs. Not just one for the I/O plate but another above the video card ports! How is this not standard on all systems? It's so simple and brilliant. No more flashlight in my mouth!
Did I say it's quiet? I got my wife a "silent" padded case and this is equal to it but with great, fantastic air flow. She's got two fans, I've got eight and it's just the slight sound of air moving on both.
Could go on and on.

Cons: Fernando from NZXT wont answer my emails but he's really busy stopping at every Starbucks on the 605. I even used google translate to put my question about top mounted fans in Taiwanese so he could just forward it to the techs and no love. No love from Fernando. Que lastima.
Oh yeah, it's a bit expensive and tolerances on screws and holes could be a bit more in line with that but nothing is really wrong and the really good fans and PWM hub and rear LEDs make up for that. Also, the wonderful cooling means no money spent on water cooled system. Wish there was an LED inside that I could flick on to just take a look from time to time, maybe hooked up with the rear lights. Guess I'll do that myself. It's so quiet that I want to make sure the fans are all spinning.

Other Thoughts: Um, I think I got that other guy's screws and standoffs because they gave me enough for a couple builds.
This case is replacing a 10 year old Thermaltake Xaser V beast and I made the right choice because this feels durable and has all the mod cons for today's computers.

2 out of 5 eggs Which way does it blow? Can't tell. 09/02/2015

This review is from: Antec TrueQuiet 120 120mm Case Fan

Pros: Relatively quiet, easy mount, thin?

Cons: Hard to tell which way it's blowing even on "high" speed. It's definitely audible and has a different note from the other fans in my case, slightly higher pitched even though it is lower rpm.
