An excellent fan.

Pros: -Designed to have variable speed/voltage
-Quiet at low speed
-Much airflow and static pressure at high speed
-high airflow and static pressure for only a 25mm thickness, as opposed to 38mm. Fits easier.

Cons: -Tiny bit of unnecessary noise at low speed. Like a barely audible "s" sound while whispering gently.
-Not a full 3-pin connector with rpm sensor; only the rpm sensor by itself. Don't know why this design, but I modified it with an adapter for my 3rd party fan controller. Takes a minute if you know the inside of a 3-pin connector.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants the option of quietness, with the option of high airflow while gaming, etc.

5/ 5

Pros: - Great fan and worth every penny I paid. ($25 at the time of purchase.)

Cons: - Bit of a flimsy standalone controller, but not worth docking an egg.

Other Thoughts: I bought this fan just over a year ago and it runs at 2400RPM (max speed) in my rig everyday and it does it without a glitch.

FANtastic!

Pros: They work extremely well. I bought them to replace the two fans that came with the Corsair H75 liquid cooler because those stock ones weren't cutting it. It's been a few months now so I don't remember the exact decrease in temperature these fans produced but I want to say it was in the neighborhood of 9-12 degrees celcius.

Cons: See other thoughts

Other Thoughts: Not adding this as a con since the fans work very well and I have been completely pleased with them but the 3 pin header they come with for power aren't really a great option. You're supposed to plug them into the fan controllers that come with them but if you don't want to use the included the fan controller, you have to use molex which means going directly into the psu which means they spin at full speed all the time. Now, not really a big deal but! these fan are quite loud at full speed.

So you basically have to choose between really loud fans, or mounting their fan controller in your case and that wasn't an option for me.

Off the rails in one year

Pros: The manual adjustment made it possible to extend the life of a graphics card that was getting on in years by kicking up the cooling when needed.

Cons: After a year of operation, the fan is getting very noisy. I have adjust the speed often in order to get it out of a wobbling pattern that is very noisy. I will have to replace it again.

Silverstone 110cfm fans

Pros: I LOVE these fans! Bought my first pair from Newegg over 5 years ago, still running like new.

They really do move some air!

Cons: At full speed, they are loud!

Other Thoughts: I use my original 2 fans on an old Cooler Master CPU cooler that takes 2 120-mm fans on an old LGA775 QX6700 quad extreme, that happily runs at 12x or about 3.2ghz, at a happy ~60C under full heavy load. The speed sensor wires are plugged into the cpu fan sockets. Usually pretty quiet that way?

Works Well

Pros: High 110 CFM for your $. Moves alot of air. Quiet yet effective at lower RPM.

Cons: Loud at high RPM. Some people may not like the manual control.

Other Thoughts: I recomend them if you dont mind the manual control.

I used two of these to relpace the 77 CFM Corair fans on my Corsair H100i CPU liquid cooler. It made a big difference on my Haswell i7 build. @ 4.5 GHz I was reaching 85* C playing the CPU intensive FSX. With these fans at full blast I manage 75*C @ 4.6 GHz 1.227v and 90*C @ 4.7 Ghz 1.278v. I only tested 4.7 Ghz briefly, 90*C is too high for my liking. 4.8 Ghz fails an intel CPU stress test and it also throttles down if stable. I wired both fans to a single controller and i usually let them idle for normal everday computing. Skyrim only needs about 50% and I rarely hit 60*C.

Third Time the Charm

Pros: Plenty of kick to FORCE air into a case (my use, see Other Thoughts).

Fan controller nice addition to "tune" air flow, providing tradeoff of flow to noise.

Would not put one of these in an HTPC, but if cooling is your primary concern, this is it. Besides, having worked in a server room for many years, bit immune to fan noise.

Cons: Sheepishly admit it took me a couple of minutes to figure out where to connect fan controller. There's a SHORT black wire 2 pin connector for this on the fan; controller wires plenty long to reach.

Also admit, on receipt, thought Newegg had shipped the wrong fan. Had ordered both the FM121 and FM121-B fans. BOTH have FM121 on front of box; displayed fans both white. The side of the box has the [silver | black] (for fan controller color) noted.

Other Thoughts: Have 2 Sans Digital MobileSTOR MS4UM+B external 4 bay cases. Even with the on-board rear exhaust fan set to high, disks, on PROLONGED transfers, start to heat up above my comfort zone. The case's front door drops down flat, and the front disk retaining bracket can be removed. A 120mm fan sits quite nicely on the laid down front door.

Have an expansion bracket PCI power panel w/(3) 4 pin power connectors on back of case, with an Okgear 48" 4 pin molex sleeved fan cable extension run to external case shelf.

1. First try: Cooler Master R4-S2S-124K-GP 120mm Case Fan which I had on hand. While it might be fine for removing dead air inside a case, not the "throughput" I was looking for.

2. Second try: Silverstone Air Penetrator AP122 120mm Case Fan. While its "directed" air flow was a bit stronger (using the "hand test"), still not the "throughput" I was looking for.

Now I did what I should have done in the first place: used Newegg search tools to look for HIGH CFM 120mm fans.

3. Third try: Silverstone FM121-B 120mm case cooling fan. WINNER. ADDED bonus: the INCLUDED fan controller. Even at 50%, plenty of "push" to force air into the case. If a disk starts to run hot, can just crank up the fan.

Certainly no louder than the on-board fan when set to high.

Not using the included "3rd monitoring wire" as it's being used to cool an outside case.

Might even play around with "tuning" noise, adjusting exhaust fan speed (3 speeds) and this intake fan for optimum cooling/noise level.

Bottom line: if you need to force air somewhere, this fan can do it.

is good

Pros: this paired with the noctua nh-d14 is amazing. i've got this fan mounted of the back directly lined up with my noctua keeping my cpu chilling at 15-23 Celsius sometimes going up to 32 when playing a game.

Cons: nob could be more sensitive, but it does a good job, no egg for that. good fan

Other Thoughts: i would recommend this product, good so far.
