Doesn't last long

Thinking doesn't hurt you should try it., Amazon
5 March 2014
  • Summary: These fans do not last very long at all for some reason. I bought 3 of them to last me through the year. I'm thinking it's a design flaw. You will start to hear a chattering sound coming from them after only a few months of use...... But with my case this is the only fan I can use in it. :/

Terrible Compatibility

John F., Newegg
6 April 2013
  • Summary: I would not purchase this fan UNLESS you needed it to replace a stock fan in an Antec Case. The worse design I have ever seen.
  • Pros: Moves a lot of air.
  • Cons: I have done two builds with the Antec 900 using this fan. The fan is loud for a fan this size considering rpm and cfm. Being required to use this fan as a replacement is terrible. Really now - three plastic case tabs with seven screws with fender washers to hold it down?!? And yes it is very much...

Fan doesn't fit any 200mm slots

Kaoru K., Newegg
4 January 2013
  • Summary: Great fan, if you can get it to fit.
  • Pros: Pushes out the most air in the 200mm range.
  • Cons: Doesn't fit any 200mm spots. I have tried to install it in my HAF-X and Thermaltake Overseer case to no avail. The screw holes are not spaced correctly. The fan also has extra plastic for no reason.

Look elsewhere

Mark K., Newegg
5 May 2011
  • Summary: Came with my Antec 600 Case. Happy with the case, unhappy with the fan.
  • Pros: Good airflow. Quiet on low and medium settings, loud on high. Adjustable speeds as well as an on-and-off switch for the blue led.
  • Cons: Defective or of low quality because it makes a clicking and humming noise that quite annoying, especially at night when there is little ambient noise. Have to RMA it to Antec which is another pain in the a**. Also, as another reviewer has mentioned this is not a standard 200mm fan. It may only fi...

WARNING NOT STANDARD 200mm FAN

Matthew M., Newegg
2 May 2011
  • Summary: I don't even know why the manufacture would bother selling these things if they aren't going to work for 90% of the people that buy them. Dear Antec, Thank you for the revolutionary design... FAIL REQUESTING REFUND
  • Pros: I'm sure this fan would work great if I could install it.
  • Cons: I just bought a new case a COOLER MASTER HAF 912 and it has optional 200mm spots for the top and front fans. I picked up two of these fans and they are useless. This fan will not fit into a 200mm area (Actual Dimension are 180mm x 240mm x 26mm). The screw holes do not line up with the standard fo...
