Summary: Why does the "pretty" side have to be side that draws air in, rather than pushes air out???? I would like to find a fan that pushes air out, instead of pulls air and DUST into my electronics and computers. So why does the "PRETTY" side of all fans have to be designed to pull air in (AND DUST) in???
Summary: Its a fan. Marketing pitches abound where fan are concerned. I was a sucker for the hype for awhile but this is the bottom line: there are no free-lunches. We all want that magic fan that provides gobs of air flow while remaining whisper quiet...
Pros: Doesn't click or whine or vibrate unnecessarily and PWM control means it remain quiet at low RPMs until more air flow is required for additional cooling effect.
Pros: Installed a pair of these in my Silverstone GD09 case. They come with rubber spacers and make no noise I can hear. They push a decent amount of air for the size. I'm using them as exhaust fans in rear of case.
