disappointing

Lawrence M., Newegg
19 February 2013
  • Summary: not worth the cost in time and money to try and return it.
  • Pros: quiet
  • Cons: the P8Z77-VLK motherboard cannot detect it (maybe a defective fan---impedence/load mismatch?). I can, however, control the fan speed (as confirmed by hear and feel): but the system rpoerts no fan-speed reports ... disappointing. Will switch back to old fan :-(

Short life for a fan

Mark T., Newegg
16 November 2012
  • Pros: It was quiet while it lasted.
  • Cons: Fan died after about a year of use. That is a really short life for a case fan. Blades are very sharp. It will cut you if you touch the fan while it is running. Would not buy again.

sweet and sour

Teri M., Newegg
7 July 2011
  • Summary: this is a great fan, and if you plan to use if for a year or two, then it's a good choice. this is not the fan if you are like me and will use a fan until it makes noise or stops spinning. I don't mind replacing fans, but a good fan should last you a good long time.
  • Pros: VERY quiet and moves alot of air. antivibration works very well, and i really like this fan. sweet!
  • Cons: after a couple years, the rubber dried out and i found the fan dangling by the power cord, completely broken away from the base. the rubber was dried out. sour.

  • Pros: Neat Design
  • Cons: They are trash. I tried two of them, both have defective PWM circuits where the fan either won't turn or will only spin at about 200 RPM. I messed with the cable where it goes into the fan and every so often it would spin up to where it should be but it didn't last. I'm guessing there is a batch ...

Non-Existant Quality Control

Robert R., Newegg
4 June 2011
  • Summary: It would cost more to rma the broken fan than it cost to buy a new one.
  • Pros: The fan that actually worked is quiet.
  • Cons: The blades on the no working fan fall right off! I don't understand how a fan can leave the factory with blades that fall completely off. Also the cables are insanely short. They are only a few inches longer than my case is wide. Using these fans on side panels is nigh impossible.

Poor quality! 0 stars

  • Summary: These are by far the worst fans I have ever seen in 20 years career. List of faults below: 1. They don't have a proper frame. Mounted on one side with a fan guard on the other. 2. Have to be mounted from inside the case. 3. Poor design - feel very flimsy. 4.

Dålig

Sassie, Prisjakt
12 August 2014
  • Summary: Den kyler hyfsat bra, men tyst är den då rakt inte. Köpte denna då min tidigare börjat låta lite för mycket och troligen var på väg att gå sönder. Den här lät mer. Låt oss säga att det blev en snabb runda ner till stan för att införskaffa en ny.

  • Excerpt: Вентилятор крепится к основанию вентилятора резиновыми гвоздями и поэтому нет жёсткого крепления, а затем уже эта конструкция приделывается шурупами к корпусу. Неудобно.
  • Pros: не сильно громкий
  • Cons: установил без крышки в корпусе лёжа - умеренный уровень шума. Поставил корпус - треск вентилятора об корпус этого же вентилятора (пришлось выключать и поправлять руками). Установил крышку боковую с трубой - снова этот треск (убрал трубу, поправил вентилятор - шум ушёл). При любом изменении положе...

No es el producto que pone

28 December 2010
  • Summary: No es el modelo Pro si no el normal (ARCTIC F12 PWM). Cambia bastante estéticamente y tiene menor rango de velocidad que el Pro (solo alcanza 1350rpm en vez de las 1500rpm del otro modelo). No es mal ventilador, pero no es el que indican. No lo devuelvo porque no quiero quedarme otra semana sin PC.
