Summary: I originally had this as a CPU fan on my hyper 212+, but then turned it into an exhause fan after getting two delta fans. It's now a front intake fan after, yes, getting another delta exhaust fan.
Pros: It still works 3 years later. Blows a lot of CFM, but it does make noise. Has static pressure Steel Frame
Cons: In today's world though, this fan is easily overshadowed by the Corsair SP 120 High Performance Fans.
Pros: This is easily one of the most powerful case fans on he market. Not only that they are not loud at all. Plus they come with rubber nails, that u simply pull through to install fan for super quick install and this pages ur fans extra vibration free. At over 85cfm it moves double the air of most fa...
Cons: None these at the best case fans for the money hands down. I bought 3 manual fan controllers for them cause I can only control 3 from my bios. They all go above 2000rpm but are super quiet and powerful at about 1800rpm so that is where I keep all of them 80/90% power.
Excellent fan for performance of intended fucntion

Summary: I own 4 of these fans and have for about a year now. They are durable and have excellent air flow. Although they are not silent that was not one of my major concerns. They aren't terribly loud even at full blast so its not an issue for me.
Summary: I have 8 of these case fans, they're a little more expensive than many case fans but the important thing for me was the ability to remove the fan from the cage! Because I live near a major highway on-ramp, our apartment pulls in quite a bit of dust.
Summary: This thing is almost silent and moves a ton of air. I use two for a push-pull set-up on my liquid cooler radiator and they keep an highly overclocked 8 core AMD at 31 degrees even under high loads.
Summary: Cooler Master sent replacement for defective unit. We'll see how long it lasts... I'm on my *4th* fan for the Cooler Master V8 CPU cooler, and I've only owned it for a few years. Unsure where they come up with their MTBF (Mean Time Before Failure) projections because they are not even close.
Summary: This fan was easy to install and it works very quietly at normal speeds, but when things inside computer get really warm (due to work load on the video board) this fan makes A LOT of noise when sped up by the motherboard. I hope it has a good bearing life....
