I was not Happy with the cheap plasic
3 December 2013
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. drawing heat away from a gnu-s back. I think they should include this at the description. Hope it helps someone make a decision.
Summary: I've owned 2 of these in about 1 1/2 years, both have died after making grinding sounds. They must use terrible bearings, although Antec usually makes really good fans... I'm sorry to say I would not recommend this at all.
Pros: Useful for unique cooling problems
Cons: 2/2 have died in 1-2 years. They must use terrible bearings, which actually is not like Antec, who usually makes great fans.
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. Even though this fan was designed for a regular tower PC it locked into the IBM's back slot on one side with ease.
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. A huge heatsink for the processor and upgraded case fan still had it running unsafe temps at times. I purchased this item, along with an adapter to use my open SATA connector to remedy the lack of a 4-pin power source.
Summary: My gpu didnt come with a fan, poor thing was running at 69 c too. So i decided it was time to step in. I got this fan mainly for the name behind it. I simply put it in the pci slot next to it, rerouted some power to it, and was up and running. My gpu runs at 40c overclocked now. Im extremely happy with this fan. Do note when placed in the pci slot the intake (where you want the gpu) is on the right side.
