Rosewill RFA-120-RL - 120mm Computer Case Cooling Fan with LP4 Adapter - Red Frame & 4 Red LED Lights, Sleeve Bearing, Silent

Pros: This is a recently priced fan that has lasted me several years with the PC running continuously. The LED lights are just right.

Cons: It will stop working at some point, as do most PC fans.

Other Thoughts: Now, for my personal tech tip. This fan recently slowed down and started making noise. I started researching buying a new fan and became curious about how these fans worked. Basically, sleeve bearing fans will stop working once the grease is gone/dirty in the sleeve bearing You can also tell this by spinning the fan blade manually; if it does not spin freely, it is likely a grease issue. The fan can be disassembled by removing the sticker on the back (and the black cap under the sticker) where you will find a small ring that keeps the fan shaft attached to the unit. (Google it). This ring can be removed using a small needle and a pair of needle nose pliers. I removed the ring and slid the fan blade off. I then greased the bearing hole where the fan shaft slides into using some household oil I had on hand. I replaced the blade, the ring and the sticker... Voila.. the fan was back in working order as if it was brand new. I also did this with the Vantec Spectrum Fan Card with Dual 70mm that I have had for well over 8 years, and it too is back in full function. I'm stoked that I was able to revive my fans and save money in the process. I hope this helps others.
