Doesn't last long.

T. Reid, Amazon
7 December 2013
  • Summary: I've owned the Antec Nine Hundred for 5 years, and my third one of these just died. Pro: good airflow. Con: seems to die pretty quickly, obviously given past experience. Also it's not a standard square shape, meaning you can't replace with any 200mm fan. I'd much rather have 2 120mm fan ports, but that's not this fan's fault. For comparison, every other stock 120mm fan in the Nine Hundred still works just fine, after running 24/7 for 5 years.

Broke

  • Summary: Bleah.
  • Pros: Moves a lot of air
  • Cons: Lasted almost a year. Literally has been spinning for a combined total of less than 24 hours. Plastic fan hub (where the blades attach) cracked in three places and fell off.

  • Pros: moves alot of air
  • Cons: on low speed, quiet on med speed, begins to rattle on high speed, rattles ALOT!

Brittle blades are frustrating

Kim, Amazon
30 June 2012
  • Summary: I have gone through a few of these on my husband's PC. He has an Antec case with this at the top and it does a great job, but the plastic is so brittle it breaks fins off if anything comes in contact. The last one we got broke when I was grabbing a pair of headphones to take to work, and the male jack slipped into the grate for a brief second. I understand that's my fault but accidents happen but none of the 120mm fans that have had that little bit of shock have broken.

Not Compatible with HAF912

Dan S., Newegg
6 May 2011
  • Summary: This fan is absolutely useless for a HAF912. It is a nice fan, but a waste of money for me. You can try to attach it on the top exhaust, but it does not fit between the motherboard and exhaust.
  • Pros: It runs silently and moves quite a lot of air. The switch that allows speed control is a nice addition.
  • Cons: The fan does NOT fit in a HAF912. The screw holes do not line up. Even if you improvise the mounting, a.g. use cable ties, the fan is too wide the front cover to reattach. The fan I bought did not come with screws, not sure if that is standard.
