Summary: I would echo what Snedie said. If you keep the RPMs low and dampen the vibrations (e.g. using the soft rubber things provided), it's very quiet. If you don't dampen the vibrations (e.g. just lie the fan on a desk or probably screw it into a case), it's actually quite noisy.
Summary: Good Fan, Have 2 of these on an Antec 620 push/pull config and I am getting temps of 26 degrees idle and 38 load on an AMD Phenom II 955 @ 3.6GHz.
It does what it says on the tin, I only wish they were quieter as that is one of the main reasons I bought them. Oh well.
Summary: Got 4 of these over the weekend whilst they were on offer.
Fit them to my Corsair H100 in a pull/push setup and I must say im very impressed. They dont really cool they rad any better than the stock fans and the 2 spare coolermaster case fans I had on prior, but what they do very well is cool the...
Summary: These fans only get four stars for the following reasons:
- Lack of pressure: Decent CFM, but the blade design doesn't facilitate good pressure through a radiator
- Vibration at low rpm: When put under a fan controller, at the lowest speed possible before the fan cut out, a significant vibration...
Summary: I would give these fans 6 stars if I could, absolutely fabulous performance. Replaced my Corsair fans supplied with the H100 with 4 of these beauties..all I can say is WOW..WOW......and WOW again.
Summary: I bought this as part of an upgrade for my system , its currently sat on my OcUk bought corsair h50.
even at full speed (1300rpm) this thing is hard to hear even when up close, all you hear is the air moving, and lots of it.
I never realised fan technology had advanced so far.
Summary: Purchased one of these fans on recommendation from Overclockers retail store staff, as a replacement for a noisy cpu cooler fan.
This has now made my system so quiet, whilst still maintaining the same temperatures as the old fan did (which ran at 2500rpm!)
Can't recommend them highly enough!!!
Summary: These fans are absolutely bad ass. At currently £9 on the 20/01/11 this is a STEAL of a price. PWM so its very quiet, and the amount of air this thing pushes through for the db, this is about as good as it gets in terms of value.
