Summary: I had to replace my existing fan due to the bearing going out (wobbling). Found an exact replacement to install this top fan on my Antec 902 series mid tower case. After figuring out how to remove my top cover case, I had no problem installing the Big Boy 200. What I really like about this fan is that it is big and has 3 levels of fan speeds. It is also quiet even at high speed setting.
I put this large one and a new heat sink in there and it was running like 20 degrees cooler and no more crashes

Summary: My desktop kept crashing. I found my old fan had died and it was over heating. I put this large one and a new heat sink in there and it was running like 20 degrees cooler and no more crashes. It went in an Antec 900 case. It was difficult to get in but that was because of the case configuration.
Summary: I have an Antec 600 which had a Tricool LED fan. Since it seems like that fan has been discountinued, I opted for this instead. This fit perfectly in my case and the speed switch mounted correctly in the slot so it is accessable when the case is closed up. My biggest complaint is this fan is designed to be mounted on at the top of the case, but the power wire is only about 5 inches long. The old one (LED Tricool) was about a foot long.
Summary: I was hoping to find a 200mm Big Boy with the blue LED but they are hard to come by. I settled for this and it is still great! The old fan was rattling really bad and the whole fan was loose on the fan shaft. This one came in very sturdy and stable, fits perfect and is very quiet!
Summary: I am glad I picked this fan up, and it does it's job, but I must say with my Antec case this top fan was the most frustrating thing in the world to install. Installation took about 45 minutes. This just should not be.
