This review is from: EVERCOOL FAN-EC12025M12C 120mm Case Cooling Fan
Pros: Sturdy and moved a decent amount of air, thought I'm not convinced its 70+ CFM. I'm using it as the push fan in my push/pull fan configuration for a water cooler. I was experimenting is using an 80mm intake fan in that the dead space of my CM HAF 932 case's 5.25" bays when I accidentally stuck my screwdriver in the blades of one of these fans and broke one of them clean off and the fan was noticeably wobbling, but it never stopped spinning. I was pretty bummed at first. That's what I get for trying to hot swap A touch of super glue and this thing keeps rockin'! Very impressed by this. It's like it never happened.
Cons: No LEDs, and not variable speed, but the price is great and I have plenty of other LED fans already to give me the light I need to check and make sure its spinning, lol.
Other Thoughts: While I know there are better fans out there, this one is pretty awesome for the money, and it's pretty quiet even at 100%. I wasn't expecting to be able to use the fan as a push fan still after super gluing the blade back on I broke off. But it works just as well and it's even reading the same RPMs at about 2040-2090(ish) that it did before "the incident". I run a pretty ridiculous rig, complete with 2 Video Cards supporting 4 monitors and capacity for more with 32GB RAM Overclocked to 4.4Ghz on an 8-core AM3 AMD CPU. I run a few test servers and always have boatloads of windows, tabs and applications running. It's my workhorse and my Media Center all at once, all the time. I was considering getting a few variable speed Delta fans (aka "Hoover-Loud") because my CPU temps were a little warm around a peak of 68C, but I added this fan as the push fan on the water cooler, and the 80mm in the case as an intake, and it only gets that hot when I really try to kill it in a "real world benchmark" now. I'm pretty much convinced that this is about the best value for a 120mm case fan I've ever had. I will keep my eyes peeled for a good deal of a PWM flavor in the future though.READ FULL REVIEW
