Good alt to a 120mm or a 92mm 8/21/2008 8:36:43 PM

Pros: Its quiet, good cfm & performance overall.

Cons: Its a little loud at max, but really not that bad or unmanageable.
You have to buy a few to get reduced bulk pricing and shipping-not really a con but I couldn't think of anything else at the moment.

Overall Review: I use this as a hard drive cooler and also as a side flow fan. It'll squeeze into a spot where you can't quite fit a 120.

Improvement over most 80mm mount situations if you have the space. Delivers good CFM over most 92mm of similar thickness.

Mounting hardware 7/5/2008 12:08:38 AM

Pros: Cheap, quiet

Cons: Comes with minimal mounting hardware -- no rubber washers, and just 4 short screws, which didn't work in my Antec case. Fortunately the case came with long screws.

Off to the hardware store to find some rubber grommets.

Overall Review: Hope it lasts a while!

Quieter than Thermaltake A2017 7/5/2008 12:06:29 AM

Pros: I purchased the SY1025SL12M and the Thermaltake A2017, and compared the two. Outside the box, the Scythe is slightly quieter (at the same airflow -- the Thermaltake is adjustable)

But when mounted in the case, the Thermaltake is much noisier. It has sort of a faint chainsaw-like buzz, which I find annoying. The Scythe is more of a white-noise sound, like a faint leaf blower.

Cons: Has sleeve bearings, so may only last 1-2 years. I think it's rated at 20,000 hours (~2 years) MTBF. Do they make a double-ball-bearing model, and is it as quiet?

Overall Review: Looks like 2 should fit in the front of my Antec NSK-6580 case, which takes two 92mm fans.

Airflow sound becomes much louder in case due to PC case grille, which is almost touching the fan. If there was room, I would use 1/2" spacer, but there is no room. So I may cut out the case grille.

Quiet 3/18/2008 3:42:47 PM

Pros: Quiet, fair amout of CFM.

Cons: Doesn't push a whole lot of air, but that is the trade off for near silence.

Overall Review: This fan truly is as quiet as it says. My cpu fan is now the loudest in my system when my gpu fan is set to 40% rpm.

WOW Great fan. 2/19/2008 11:11:19 AM

Pros: This is an awesome product. I bought this to replace the piece of junk 92mm fan running at 700-800 RPM in my sisters HP Media Center PC M7067C. Her hard drive fried b/c that was the only fan apart from the power supply in the case. I replaced the junky ribbon cable with short AC Ryan FX cables to improve airflow. Then I used the molex adapter to run this at full speed. It is pretty quiet and moves a decent amount of air. I probably could have even gotten the faster fan but this one is great. The 100 mm fan blades improve airflow and cut down on noise. MONEY WELL SPENT!

Cons: NONE

Perfect for dell optiplex or poweredge fan replacement. 1/9/2008 11:25:09 PM

Pros: Product is as specified as far as CPM. I have an airflow meter and its over the cpm. It spins solid 1600RPM. And is nearly silent. Any reviews that state that its loud have it pointed at a tightly packed heat sink. This fan is meant to exhaust air OUT.

Cons: I purchased the entire newegg stock which was ten units. So you got to wait to buy one.

Overall Review: Fan housing is slightly bigger than 100mm which works perfect for my application however might not work perfect for yours.

Not quite what I expected 12/20/2007 4:47:53 AM

Pros: Great looking fans with decent airflow for the volume level. Two different fan mounting sizes can possibly come in handy.

Cons: I don't have a db meter around, but I can't believe these fans are only 22db.

Overall Review: Good fan although it seems a little loud for a fan that should have worked in a quiet pc.

Good airflow 8/23/2007 11:59:28 AM

Pros: This a good fan because if used with a fan controller, it becomes very quiet, but still can deliver a good airflow. At max speed it gives very good airflow.

Cons: -Could be a little bit cheaper for no led and such.

-Gets louder at max speed, but would no problem with a fan controller.
