I love these fans! (But they are a bit loud) 08/02/2014
This review is from: SILVERSTONE FM121 120mm Case Cooling Fan
These are great case cooling fans at 100+ CFM, but they are a bit loud. They can be slowed down with a trim-pot to make them more quiet but that also reduces the CFM. All in all, a first choice for me from now on for 120mm case cooling fans. I've installed four of them on one case and will likely use another four to upgrade another case I have. Excellent fans.
Loud. Noisy. But that's to be expected at the high RPM you need in a 120mm fan to push out 100+ CFM. I'm used to it but not everyone can tolerate it.
The fact that they include a trim-pot to dial down the RPM's and thus quiet the noise is a very thoughtful decision on the part of the manufacturer. These are now a first choice for me for 120mm case cooling fans or for any high CFM application. I've even rigged one of these up to cool my DSL modem for my internet connection. The modem tends to run hot. I just added an old power supply and jumpered the 24-pin connector with a bent paper-clip. The P/S has an on/off switch for when I'm trying to sleep since the modem is in my bedroom.
