Pros: Extremely quiet, 92mm vs 80mm, high CFM, low power draw compared to similar fans (.13A), fluid bearing.
Cons: No signal lead - no way to measure rpm.
Overall Review: Bought this to replace an old 80mm Cooler Master I slapped in my new desktop. The case had holes for both 80mm and 92mm, so I figured why not go larger (and quieter at the same time). It pushes a few more CFM, at a lower dB than the previous. I'm surprised the most at the noise, I was used to a PC that sounded like a small aircraft taking off, with this fan I can't even hear the white noise of the fan, it's entirely silent! Let's hope it stays that way.
Pros: I replaced two 92mm Sunon case fans with these babies and the noise reduction is DRAMATIC. My entire system is 1/3rd as noisy as it was before. The only sound I hear now is my stock BFG 6600gt video card fan (which is not very bad either). Before putting them into their brackets, I held each of the two I bought up to my ear with them running, and even at that range they were not much more than a gentle sound of blowing air. In-other-words: A whisper of air, but no "whine".
Cons: They don't have a RPM signal to tell you how fast they are turning. Not a big deal, considering that the old fans were plugged into my PSU and not my motherboard - and thus I didn't have an RPM reading before these anyway. But it would be nice, just so I can tell if all fans are turning and set alarms if they die (not as likely considering these Arctic Cooling fans have a 6 year warranty and my old fans had a a 1 year warranty and they were still working after 5 years).
Overall Review: I wish I had bought these a long time ago! Now I just need to get a good quiet GPU cooler to fully eliminate all noise from my system. If you buy these and they make a whine, then I would say return the bad unit and get another one - if that happens then there must be something wrong with the unit, because these fans are quiet! Make sure to turn off your system before trying to put them into their brackets, so you don't jam something into the spinning blades.
Pros: Very quiet, used this fan to replace the noisy one that came with my Mini Typhoon heatsink.
Cons: None that I can think of
Overall Review: Quiet was the big criteria for every component that went into my HTPC, and this fan fit in well.
Pros: It works on proprietary dell fans, although you get an error when starting up it goes right past it.
Overall Review: none
Pros: Is a relatively quiet fan. Plugged 2 into my server and didn't notice much of a noise difference. The truly extraordinary thing about these fans was that it is warranted for 6 years. It's estimated to run about 4400 hours before dying. You can't get that kind of MTBF with any other fan other than Noctua. The only problem with Noctua is that they tend to be a bit pricey. These are much more reasonably priced. An absolutely wonderful product for your money!
Cons: No tachometer. Unless you're monitoring fan speeds, probably not important at all.
Overall Review: The fluid-bearings are a great idea
Pros: Low noise cant hear it over HP's stock CPU cooler. Cheap and had free shipping.
Cons: Doesn't seem to move a whole lot of air for its size, but that may be due to them keeping it quiet.
Pros: Low Noise, just what I needed.
Overall Review: Artic cooling has not disapointed me in past or now.
Pros: Price and availability.
Cons: Loud too loud for silent pc builders. I should have bought a Noctua 1200 RPM Fan dude. Remember the Arctic Cooler 7? Well, It is rated at 0.9 Sones which is equivalent to 28-29 DB. Be careful and do your homework before buying this arctic stuff. I was a supporter of the earlier models for the 939 and other Pentium 4 sockets. They went off the charts with this one in sound decibels. Get a Noctua Fan instead. Believe me, I have the Arctic cooler 7 and now replacing it with a Noctua NH-U9F cpu cooler with a 1200 RPM fan bundle. Google the Noctua NH-U9F, you won't be disappointed.
Overall Review: Get a Noctua Fan for your CPU or Chassis. They Have other sizes as well.
