Good for typical vertical mounting, not as good for horizontal mounting.

Chris Hom, Amazon

  • Summary: I have 3 of these fans currently and have one more on the way. They are fantastic, move a good share of air and are quiet silent as well. Only main problem as to why I gave it 4 stars was that horizontal installation proves to be moderately noisy due to extra vibrations from the motor hitting the 120mm casing. I wrote an email to arctic and was never contacted back, so I'll also include that into my reason as to why I took off a star.

Have bought before, will buy again.

  • Summary: Great fan, solid and quiet. I am not a big fan of this wire harness though. I have many, it does not stop me from buying them, but prefer the simple 4-wire pwn connection. If you are lacking in MB fan headers, this will come in handy; if not lacking, then it will cost you an extra zip tie to secure the extra wire.... Have bought before, will buy again.

Quiet and they move a lot of air!

Michael Laferriere, Amazon

  • Summary: These fans will move a lot of air quietly. They mount easy and seem well built especially considering the price. They wont have a high static pressure but will move a large volume of air. This makes them perfect for case fans. I bought a four pack and installed them in a Coolermaster HAF 912 case. The air they move is considerable compared to the case fans the Coolermaster came with. Unlike most fans they are electrically stackable.

Motherboard Fan Speed Sensor

Tim N., Newegg
26 May 2014
  • Summary: When connecting to my Sabertooth z77 motherboard I could not get the chassis fan 4 pin connections to display the rpm for this fan. Any chassis fan connection I plugged this in (there are 4 on this motherboard) just displayed as N/A for rpm. I could mess around with the speed in the ASUS Thermal Radar program and see/hear the fan spin up or slow down but I could not get the RPM.
  • Pros: Unique style and high quality fan, construction feels and looks very solid
  • Cons: Weak instructions, short cord length

Works fine, quiet

Cy Birr, Amazon
12 February 2014
  • Summary: Only shortcoming I see is the wiring harness. Very light gauge wires even for this kind of component. Also, I prefer sleeved wired versus loose. The 3 to 4 pin conversion plug is not very well installed. There are better designs. Couldn't really tell by the description how it was built.

Nice Fans

Doug, Amazon
26 January 2014
  • Summary: Perfect case fans for plugging into my motherboad's 4pin connectors to individually control the fan speeds. They're nice and quiet, but they don't move as much air as I had expected. Overall, great fan though. Would buy again.

Quiet and cool

  • Summary: Runs quiet and cool. Replaced a cheap-o generic fan that seized up. Should come with some rubber pads to help dampen vibrations.

Exhaust only

Steve B., Newegg
9 April 2013
  • Summary: Have had one fan that "sags" when mounted vertically, causing the blades to strike the housing. Not sure why only one is doing it (have more than 6 deployed in various machines), but it does mean I have to open the case and "jiggle" it a little to get it to quiet back down.
  • Pros: These are quiet fans. The engineering is interesting.
  • Cons: These are exhaust only. As someone else mentioned, who doesn't design a fan to work either way? Should have read reviews more thoroughly before ordering.

pleased.

Lawrence M., Newegg
19 February 2013
  • Summary: Speed sense did not seem to work at first, but after a (cold) reboot the MB had no problem; not sure why. rpm test was 493rpm (40%) to 1587rpm (100%).
  • Pros: quiet. nice rubber mounts to reduce vibration.
  • Cons: Did not need ability to "daisy-chain" these fans, just an extra [very small] wire in case----but good price.
