Disapointing Quality

Craig S., Newegg
27 October 2013
  • Pros: Rubber mounting for the fan reduces vibration greatly. I had 80 mm and 92 mm version of it previously and I was pleased with them.
  • Cons: Fan blade is not well balanced. The fan is vibrating badly. If it wasn't for the rubber mount, it would have created very loud noise. I did not have problem with their fans before. Rubber mount does take care of vibration, but that does not mean it is ok to have unbalanced fan.

bit noisy

  • Summary: Bought two of these as they were on discount at the time. Whilst having the connecters to daisy-chain other fans without needing additional pin-outs on the motherboard was nice, I was disappointed with the amount of noise they made at higher RPM compared to my other case fans.

Exhaust Only

Mathew D., Newegg
27 April 2011
  • Summary: I was slightly irked when I received 2 of these I had ordered to be used as intake fans. I had never even considered someone to make a fan with only one orientation. Since there was nothing in the description stating exhaust only I RMA'd them and will get the non pro version.
  • Pros: Very quiet fan even at full speed. Mounted on rubber posts to reduce vibration.
  • Cons: Exhaust only! There is no way to change the orientation of this fan to be used as a intake.

Strange Screw Size

Scott B., Newegg
12 November 2010
  • Summary: Would love to rate the product in use, but as yet I haven't been able to mount it because of the screw issue.
  • Pros: Fan has built in noise isolation silicon straps.
  • Cons: Fan has built in noise isolation silicon straps but makes no mention of it. I bought some additional fan isolators and now have no use for them. Would have been nice to not have to buy them. Screws that come with the fan do not fit the stock holes in my Antec Sonata (original) case. I'm going to have to file the holes out in order to make the screws fit.

Acceptabel

  • Summary: Funktionsmässigt fungerar den väldigt bra, med relativt låg ljudvolym. Pinnarna som håller upp fläkten knäcks ganska lätt, tyvärr.

  • Excerpt: Если добавить рублей 150-200 то можно взять очень тихий вентилятор.Насчет проводов,они не очень длинные,Не смог поставить по этой причине его на морду корпуса,если системник не большой то проблем думаю не будет
  • Pros: Цена и характеристики за эти деньги(370 рублей)
  • Cons: Гудит.... и этим раздражает, стоит таких 2 штуки на вдув.

Ganska bra

viller2, Prisjakt

  • Summary: Jag installerade nyligen denna fläkt i min brors chassi, och det var på håret att sladden räckte hela vägen till CPU-uttaget. Väl på plats styrs den tillsammans med CPU-fläkten, vilket jag upplevde gjorde att den gick på lite för låga varvtal. Värt att tänkte på är att många moderkort kan reglera fläkthastigheten på vanliga 3-pinsfläktar, varpå PWM-funktionen blir överflödig (som för mig). Jag har hellre sett att man även inkluderade en kontakt för vanliga 3-pinsuttag.
