ENERMAX Cluster UCCL12N 120mm White LED 1500RPM Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Glad I'm not the only one that finds this shaky 10/06/2013

This review is from: ENERMAX Cluster UCCL12N 120mm White LED 1500RPM Case Fan

Pros: Before it started shaking and vibrating, it was pretty good. Comparable to the Enermax Magma.

Cons: When it wears out, it shakes, A LOT. Obviously, it becomes really loud and the air flow reduces considerably.

Other Thoughts: I think it's a combination of the fan and the fan frame. The new fan's seem to be modular, so I fitted another "ENERMAX T.B. Silence UCTB12N-R" onto it. The fan was much more uniform versus the original (can see it while it spins), it's a lot quieter but still vibrates a little. I'm just worried that it'll wear out the UCTB12N.

I also put the UCCL12N onto the frame of the UCTB12, and verified that the fan itself is pretty much garbage, somehow it's way too deformed and definitely lop-sided.

Really unfortunate because I'm an Enermax fan and this really was a downer. Magma and Marathon's are not modular with these new style of fans... :/

I can't even really do any quick band-aid fixes, which gave it a solid 1 egg.

3 out of 5 eggs Wished I looked at the dates of the other reviews 10/11/2012

This review is from: TP-LINK TL-WN881ND Wireless N300 PCI Express Adapter, 300Mbps, w/WPS Button, IEEE 802.1b/g/n, 64/128 bit WEP, WPA/WPA2

Pros: It works. Signal is mediocre. The driver's on TP-Link's website are much smoother. CD had some issues, but could have been my drive's fault.

Cons: As with all the other reviews, low profile bracket is not included... :(
I thought with all the negative reviews on this subject would've lead TP-Link to fix and address these issues by now. Looks like they're approaching this situation 1 customer at a time.

Other Thoughts: It was a good thing that I had another low profile bracket with the same screw holes. At least I got to use the product.

Thermaltake AF0018 ISGC Fan 12 120mm Case Fan
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs Poor Customer Service? Poor Quality? 09/09/2009

This review is from: Thermaltake AF0018 ISGC Fan 12 120mm Case Fan

Pros: The design looks ok for wind impedence, uses resonance and turbulence to cancel wind noise. It's a lot more quiet when the intake side has positive pressure, but the bearing still whines and buzzes at higher RPMs. The CFM does seem correct, it does blow a lot of air. It also has a small potentiometer connected to the wire to adjust fan speed, though it's really short so it's hard to rewire it to outside the case for easier access.

Cons: It's no where near the dBA it said it was. I read all the other reviews and bought it because everyone said it was really quiet. I have a Noctua 92mm Fan(17.6 dBA), 2 Enermax UC-12EB 120mm fans(17 dBA), and a Cooler Master R4-S2S-12AK-GP 120mm fan(19.8 dBA). On the Thermaltake website, it says this fan ranges from 16 dBA to a little less than 20 dBA at max RPM. Past 1180 RPM (according to BIOS) this thing is noticeably the LOUDEST fan in my case by far. I need to turn this down to around 1000 RPM for the Coolermaster fan's noise to drown out everything else. It scares me to think that this fan is going to keep getting louder after running a few hundred hours (This info is also from their website). It just seems wrong that such as pricey fan does not share the the quality of my other fans.

Other Thoughts: I e-mailed customer service, they said they'd get back in 48 business hours, it's been 72 hours and still no response. I might have to end up calling them seeing if I got a defective fan, and maybe these fans really are as silent as other people say. But judging by their website, they seem reluctant for RMA's.

I don't know if my standards are different from other people's, but the Enermax and Noctua fans are really dead silent. And this Thermaltake fan just doesn't even come close to comparing. I just feel ripped off spending the money on this and finding out it doesn't live up to the hype. Thermaltake usually gets high ratings, but guess I should think twice about them now.

Maybe Noctua, Enermax, and Coolermaster underestimated their dBA ratings, and this is just what 20 dBA is supposed to sound like, but I got 4 companies that say their fan ranges from 15-20 dBA, and Thermaltake takes the crown for the loudest, by a lot.
