Scythe GentleTyphoon D1225C12B4AP-14 120mm Case cooler

5 out of 5 eggs Long life (2 years nearly 24/7), quiet 05/15/2011

This review is from: Scythe GentleTyphoon D1225C12B4AP-14 120mm Case cooler

Pros: Long life. I purchased two of these in mid-2009. Since they're ball bearing fans, I used one of them oriented horizontally (blowing up) in my top blowhole of my case. It's still operating as quietly today in mid-2011 as it did when I first purchased it, and exhausting a tremendous amount of warm air from my case 24/7. The other has been operating on my CPU just fine as well.

Cons: Slightly more expensive than some fans, but worth it. And given the durability and ball bearings, they pay for themselves in about two years (especially when mounted with the fan horizontal in the top of a case, where a sleeve bearing fan would typically grow noisy within 6 months).

Other Thoughts: They're quiet, produce decent airflow, and possess excellent durability and wear characteristics. The price is very good considering the lifespan alone, and taking the performance into account they're excellent.
