Pros: Move a lot of air, fast. Have cool LEDs because I am 5 years old and pretty lights amuse me.
Cons: I really like Antec stuff, but these fans sound like a card stuck in some bike spokes. Probably solvable with WD40, but I can't be bothered. These are like 8 bucks so I threw them out and got some new ones from Best Buy.
Summary: In theory, this fan is supposed to perform well, maybe I got a less than great one, I don't know. It produces a unique drone that doesn't particularly carry well at low but it's quite noticeable at high. So in addition the the air "whoosh" sound you hear a distinct motor drone.
Cons: - Not quiet or silent at all. - It's audible on low and especially on high. However, the interesting thing is that at low the drone that it does produce doesn't travel far. I have other fans going, namely PSU and GPU fans that are louder than this and overtake this fan's unique drone when I step ...
Excerpt: This fan runs silently in the bottom of my PC case and casts a blue hue over the interior of the case giving it an attractive glow at night when the lights in the room are off. Very satisfied with this fan.
Summary: Meets all of my expectations. Prior to installing my cpu would idle around 37°C and under gaming or usage load it would get up to 56-58°C with ambient room temperature around 22°C. Once I installed idle temperature is 27-29°C and while gaming and media streaming it doesn't get above 47°C.
Summary: I'm not a computer guru, but when I buy a fan that is supposed to run at 800 rpm on low and 1200 rpm on high I take it at face value. It was running lower than both when I first put it in. 300 on low and 600 on high.
