6 August 2014
  • Summary: I got it for free with one of my orders. I see why.
  • Pros: -Cool looking -Fan works -Different settings are handy -Quiet
  • Cons: -Only worked for about 1-2 months before it started falling apart. I was partially to blame though because I kept fiddling with things inside my rig. -The mounting screw is absolute trash. It wouldn't stay up on it's own, I had to prop it up on something when it did work.

SpotCool

Kyler S., Newegg
14 July 2014
  • Summary: Like any 3 pin powered fan, the cord is ugly. After shrink wrapping them in black they look much better.
  • Pros: These are great for northbridge coolers on systems using liquid setups.
  • Cons: None.

What a great specialty fan

Adam W., Newegg
22 April 2014
  • Summary: I don't understand a comment left on this product. 1. The light is WAY to bright. - I hope you have your fan facing the appropriate way, the "exhaust" side of the fan is where the LED lights are. They cascade a pleasing glow on my MOBO, not in my face. Fix: While it would have been nice to see the build quality of the neck a little higher, its nothing a little extra MOD can't fix.
  • Pros: A great versatile cooling element! - Great build quality - Rotating head - Great accent lighting - Pretty darn quiet even on HI.
  • Cons: - The neck doesn't support its on weight when mounted level or above fan head. (see comments below for fix!)

System Cooler

Craig R., Newegg
7 December 2013
  • Summary: I would recommend this to any one buying a small media pc case.
  • Pros: Great way to add a extra fan to a small media case. Works great and keep things cool.
  • Cons: A little hard to install in a media case. I ended up taking a pci bracket and drilling a hole to mount it. Other than that no issues.

Wouldn't recommend

Joel N., Newegg
23 November 2013
  • Summary: I am currently running two 770's in SLI and I bought this to point at the top card to help it cool off since it is smashed between another GPU and a sound card. It did absolutely nothing to the temps and it is the loudest fan in my case. I will leave it in until I clean out my case, but after that it is gone.
  • Pros: It is easy to install and point in whatever spot you need.
  • Cons: It is loud and the LED lights are too bright. Doesn't cool very well.

Not like the old SpotCool

Don J., Newegg
29 July 2013
  • Summary: I have used several of the old Antec SpotCools in past builds. A fan bearing went bad on a SpotCool in one of my old systems, so I ordered a new one from Newegg. Apparently, Antec has started using a cheaper goose neck assembly that doesn't stay where it is bent. So what's the point of that? Don't mess with a good thing. I'd rather pay a few bucks more for a SpotCool that does what it's supposed to do.
  • Pros: Similar design to the old SpotCool.
  • Cons: Antec started using a cheaper goose neck that doesn't work nearly as well as the old one.
