Good for a Year, Finally Died, Like Other Users

Michael R., Newegg
19 January 2015
  • Summary: This is a great little fan. If they made a double PCI slotted fan system, then we would be talking. Like everyone else here, one day I walked in and I hear this terrible loud sound.
  • Pros: Moved air effectively, I personally didn't think it is loud at all (read my thoughts), dropped temps in a Cooler Master Cosmos.
  • Cons: Died after a year of service. A 10 bucks fan should buy longer than a year.

Cyclone

Anthony L., Newegg
3 December 2014
  • 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...

You can flip the direction

denesK, Amazon
4 May 2013
  • 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.

Very nice product at a reasonable price.

C. Daum "Gamefan", Amazon
25 November 2012
  • 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.

Not quite an airplane engine

Patrick B., Newegg
29 July 2012
  • 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.

quiet? really?

Anonymous, Newegg
28 May 2012
  • Summary: Why? it would be so easy to make it just... do. It's a fan. not exactly innovative technology. Just make it quiet, so what if it's $15 instead of $8 when you're done.
  • Pros: Seems to have good throughput (CFM)
  • Cons: I already have 5 120mm case fans, a 120mm PSU fan, and a VGA fan, and yet somehow I can distinctly hear this fan rattling away over all of them.

This thing moves some air!

Jordan, Amazon
6 May 2012
  • 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.

Makes a world of difference in system temps!

Jonathan A. Huse, Amazon
1 March 2012
  • 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.
