Pros: Good cooling
Small and efficent.
Moves alot of Air for its size
Overall Review: I could tell u that this small fan pushes more air then my MASSCool Blue LED fans whicha re 80mm, that puts a shame on a bigger fan, n this thing is way quiter then those as well.. Just brings a new meaning to bigger isn't better...
Comments: Fan noise is about right @ 26db. I used the fan to replace an old cpu heatsink fan. If you are going to use it for a cpu heatsink, make shure that your screws are long enough, as this fan is fairly thick for a 60mm. Although this fan is relatively quiet it does give off a good amount of vibrations, but YMMV.
Pros: Moves a lot of air for a small fan. almost surprising.
Cons: Much louder than the specs would indicate... 30-33dB at least. Not well balanced, it vibrates the outer plastic case as it spins.
Overall Review: Useful for some apps but just too loud for me, like they say, I can hear this from across the room. 2-3x louder than my other fans. You could add a fan speed controller and run it at half speed, then have high speed capability as a reserve.
Pros: Uhm, cheap, ball-bearing...
Cons: This thing is loud -! I bought it to replace a stock fan (60x15mm) on an external StarTech enclosure (USB -> 2xSATA) but this one is even louder... Definitely not 26.5 dBA.
Overall Review: It is 20mm deep (not mentioned in product specs but on Antec web page). Newegg delivered it in 1 day for free... Pretty slick :-)
Comments: Very good little fan. Quiet, functional. Would have gotten an 80mm, but the rear spot on back was only 60mm. To reiterate, a very good 60mm fan, worth the money if u cannot get an 80.
Not very loud (compared to the fan it replaced)
Cons: Not really 60mm. Fan is about 55 or 56mm.
Overall Review: I bought this as a replacement for a CPU heatsink fan that died. It was clearly smaller than the original fan. When I measured the blade diameter I got around 56mm. Since I needed the PC badly I went ahead and mounted it to the heatsink. CPU temps are running 37 Celsius. It seems to be working at a satisfactory level but I am going to look into something better before summer gets here.
Some have complained about the noise level of this fan. I haven't noticed a significant difference in volume level between this fan and the old fan. The pitch is different though.
Also note, since it doesn't plug into the motherboard you will not get an RPM reading in the BIOS.
Pros: Works great when attached to a nb hs. Moves air - does its job.
Cons: None come to mind, but its just a fan and only serves one purpose.
Pros: It throws a lot of air for a smaller fan.
Cons: This is THEE noisiest 60-80mm fan I've ever heard! I'm not joking, it's so loud I can hear it from my living room, and the computer is 20 feet away in the office! No 3-pin connector either, but I knew that when I bought it.
Overall Review: I'm a little disappointed as I trusted the other reviews here that it was indeed quiet. I thought my AMD stock CPU fan was loud until I plugged this thing in, but wow-it's louder than my power supply, CPU fan and an additional 80mm case fan put together! I just disconnected it and left it there in case I need it until I find a better replacement. I record audio in a home music studio and need my gear to be as quiet as possible, but it's so loud it was even annoying me when surfing and sending emails! If noise level means nothing to you, go ahead and get it, as it DOES blow a lot of air anyway. Wish it was as quiet as my new Logisys 80mm fan! (LOGISYS Computer LT400BL).
