Summary: This fan is only quiet at low RPMs, but when it gets to 1000 the noise becomes clearly noticeable. At high RPMs I don't think it's any quieter than a cheap OEM fan I had before. But more problematic is that the air flow is very weak even at maximum RPM.
Extremely Quiet, But Barely Moves Air. VERY LIMITED USEFULNESS!

Summary: When I first purchased this, it was one of several I purchased at once. And to be clear, I have an excellent history with Antec; have been purchasing their aluminum gaming cases for a decade or so, and have purchased/used their cooling fans for a similar stretch of time.
Summary: The fan I received was rather poor. it runs very quietly if it is at an angle, but horizontal (pointing up or down) or vertical orientations both have noise that seems to be from a balance issue.
Summary: I have Antec 1200 case and wanted to install a fan in the side panel for extra cooling, Fan clips in but the pressure from clips prevents fan from spinning. I am going to try and install in the rear of case because one of the fans is going out but no guarantee it will fit there either.
Summary: Don't bother, just get a TriCool 120 DB. They've been very reliable.
Pros: Very quiet, nice bushings.
Cons: Quiet, but what do you expect from a 120mm fan that has a maximum speed of 1,000 RPM? Even just medium speed on a TriCool 120 is 1,600 RPM, while low is 1,200 RPM. This one only has two speed settings (you can still make out the M that they scratched out from the non-existent middle setting on th...
Summary: The fan will not even move a feather. The connection with the case is a plastic piece pushing into rubber, not a screw into metal. Now I know why it was rated quiet and not newegg or tigerdirect.
Excerpt: die lüftersteuerung erlaubt 2 einstellungen low und high auf low unhörbar ... die befestigung lässt allerdings sehr zu wünschen übrich ...die mitgelieferten gummi nippel sind nach ca einem halben jahr porös geworden und erlauben dann keinen aus-und wieder einbau da sie auseinander reißen.
