Pros: -Move a lot of air
-very quiet when functioning properly at low speeds and relatively quiet even at max speeds
-pwm is a nice touch
Cons: -only came with rubber isolators, no screws. The case I purchased had too small of holes for the isolators and these fans are about 0.5mm thicker than a typical fan is for some reason. This means the screws are a little too short and the entire fan casing becomes warped just to mount it. For the price I got these at ($13) I thought they would be a steal, but that is pretty annoying.
-However, the bigger issue is the pulsing sound accompanied by these fans. I am not sure if it is poor balancing or bearing, but they make a very noticeable pulsing sound at all speeds, but you only really hear it at low speeds when it isn't covered by regular fan sounds. If you live in a noisy house or always have music or sounds on, you might not even notice it. But my computer is only around 3 feet from my head and I often work in near silence, making the fan very annoying. I bought 2 of these, one of them always pulsed and the other originally didn't. I sent one in for a replacement but then the 2nd one started so I am not very confident. I tried placing these fans in multiple orientations, multiple speeds, and without the case warping them, but to no avail. I will probably eventually get fed up with these and get different ones.
Other Thoughts: -Would not recommend unless you live in a noisy environment, use headphones constantly, or don't mind a pulsing fan sound.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec P100 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: -Looks great
-Foam padding and front door significantly dampen sound
-Foam covered plates to cover the upper radiator ports was a very nice touch if you don't plan on a radiator or top fans.
-Nice grommets for the wire and sufficient cable routing
-The 2 provided fans are relatively quiet and move air well
-Provided filters work very well. I have only had the computer for around 3 weeks and there is enough dust built up on the front filters to require cleaning.
-The door seems fairly sturdy
Cons: -Front fan mounting is pretty bad. Instead of 4 holes for fasteners they decided to put 2 small bumps and 2 holes. I get that the idea is to make location easier, but the 140mm fans I got (140mm Computer Case Cooling Fan Hydro Dynamic Bearing Silent 2 Speeds Rosewill) don't properly contact the bumps, causing the fasteners to twist the fan back into the case. In addition, the holes were too small for the rubber isolators typically sent with a fan.
-The front audio ports to the computer have a poor electrical connection. Mine kept shorting out which was making it detect something in the front ports, causing obnoxious pop-ups and sound interruptions to the point that I just disabled them. I wiggled the wires to track the issue and it was right at the mounting point. However, it wasn't a super big deal breaker and I was hardly going to take my entire computer apart for that.
Other Thoughts: -A lot bigger than I imagined
-Overall a great case that I will plan on keeping for a long time
