These fans have obviously changed - noisy and dim - do not buy!

Summary: I don't know which fans all of these rave reviews are pointing to, but the fans I received, which are indeed Antec Tricool Red LED fans, are garbage. The good: The wiring is well thought out and high quality. There is an included adapter which allows you to run the fan off a molex and still have a separate 3-pin cord to plug into a fan controller or motherboard to read the RPM output. The switch is easy to access, and easy to use, and feels solid.
Summary: The best part about these fans is that it has a 3 mode switch attached to them. So you can plug these into a power supply via molex adapter and still control the fan speed. Also the LED's in the fan are really bright!
Summary: The drive bay fans in my Antec 900 were starting to go. After doing research I found that the Antec TriCool 120mm fams will work for replacements. The fans line up with screw holes for the drive bays and the rear exhaust fan. The 3-speed switch cord is shorter than the stock fans but it is workable. I just tucked mine into an empty drive by slot. These fans are quiet and look good when the lights are out.
Summary: I bought two of these for my current Coolermaster case. I installed one on the top to use as an exhaust fan. If attached correctly, it is rather quiet. The screws are difficult to sit correctly and can make a noise when accidentally shifted. I ended up just screwing in two on opposite sides. You have the option of attaching it to either the power supply or motherboard. It was easier for me to attach it to the PSU, so I just ended up doing that.
Summary: Bought this fan to put in the 120mm slot on the haf x for graphics cooling.. I dont see why people say this is loud. I have it on high and its still not very loud, and cools very nice. Works great.
Summary: I like the 3 speed switches. On the low setting they are whisper quite, on speed 2 seem to push a lot of air, on setting 3, they gain so noise, but considering the amount of air they push, fair trade, but really they are very quiet for 120mm fans. I have a nice white case and with the red LEDs top, bottom, front and rear, they really set it off through the vents and the side glass.
Summary: I bought this fan for my DF-85 case for use on the side and to help cool my SLI configuration for 2 GTX460's. It matches the red fans on case and cooled the cards almost an additional 10 degrees. If you have a DF-85 like I do the case itself comes with the 2 screws needed to install the fan. The ones that come with this fan do not work with it.
Summary: I got these fans to change out the blue LED fans that came with my antec900 case. It is now all red LED's and it looks the same just red now. I recommend this fan if you want Red LED's. Also i have own these fans (three) for over a year and none of them have any noise issues at all.
