Summary: I would have one more in the case if I could, when I build my next pc, a full tower, not a mid. I will buy two of them for support for the power supply and the Gpu. really quite surprised how well it has done for as long as I have had it. I will buy more.
Pros: Cheap, good for sucking the hot air from off of my GPU. Since i have a mid tower it does a great job at grabbing the heat the GPU puts off despite the good fan it has running in it as well. For 8 bucks, mine is actually far more quiet than the other high cfm fans, I am running 8 case fans, and th...
Cons: It can be harder to clean if you have a smaller mid size case with a small atx board. like mine with all packed in there. And remembering it moves a lot of air and collects a lot of dust. Keeping it clean really helps that wheel move the most air. So just the size and cleaning can be a small hass...
Summary: item did not work - it made my system shutdown and not power up - I have owned A few & this was not the same part in the pic - I got A cheap non working part - the plasic was cheap and breakable by heat - if any thing I got A used one as new
Summary: After ordering this item, I realised, that the fan size was facing into the wrong direction, competing against my GPU (dual crossfireX) fans. There is great news: you can easily pop the rear plate off, and simply turn the fan around, so instead of facing up in the case, it can be facing down (e.g.
Summary: I don't write many reviews. In fact I think this is only my second or third. So i have to be impressed by something to take action. Anyway, I easily installed this fan into a non tower type, flat sitting, six year old IBM Thinkcenter computer that I had picked up refurbished some time ago.
Summary: I would have liked to see a standard fan connector on this rather than the 4-pin molex. With how noisy this thing is I would have loved the option to plug it into a fan controller. The casing is reversible. Out of the box it pulls air down and then pushes it out.
Pros: This thing really does do a good job of pushing out unwanted warm air. I can definitely feel the exhaust coming out the back of the case. Before picking this up my case temps were anywhere from 60°C - 70°C under load. Now they seem to stabilize below 60°C.
Cons: Noisy. It won't be a deal breaker for some people but I'm picky about my noise levels and this one is quite noticeable. I can hear the specific fan from all the way out in the hall. It's not *terribly* loud, but if you're picky about noise levels, keep looking.
Summary: This is a more powerful fan than just a square mounted case fan. You can really feel the air moving out from this blower. I have it mounted obove my viedo card. If I remember the before temp correctly then it is about 4-5 degrees Celsius cooler. Nice and cool. Very easy to Install.
Summary: This purchase was made out of a last-ditch effort to save an ongoing project to push the limits of my Dell Inspiron 570. After upgrading the CPU and video card, the core temp was reaching 80c under heavy use.
