Nice, inexpensive fan!

Summary: You're getting a good fan for cheap. The 19 dba listed for this fan should be taken heavily salted. (as should the 69 cfm) There are no cheap fans that push lots of air AND are super quiet. That being said, this fan does pretty well.
Summary: I had to buy a new fan for my pc since my one was broken, I got this one since it was pretty cheap. Appart from the struggle I had installing it (because of those weird rubber screws wich comes with my case) everything is working very well.
Pros: -Quiet -Seems to cool my computer very well, my pc have never been that cool! -Cool LED lights
Summary: Would not recommend, would not order again.
Pros: I'm usually a big fan of Cooler Master products but beware of these fans.
Cons: 2 of the 3 I ordered for replacements on my case went bad in just over a month. May be a bad production run but those are bad odds. Went bad = became extremely noisy and took on terrible vibration that escalated from minor to cringe worthy in less than 48 hours after running smoothly for over a m...
Good air flow and nice deep blue to match my system but way too loud.

Summary: I never bothered to review these or try to return them after my initial purchase (dumb of me at the time). So I could very well have just gotten 2 bad fans. I used them for awhile and unplugged them after a few months because of the noise level (computer with them off almost sounds silent compared...
Pros: -fans move a good amount of air out of my case -blue LEDs match the exact color of my rigs case LEDs -easy to install and had no compatibility issues
Cons: -these fans are very loud, not sure if I just got a bad pair or not but they are 2x+ louder than anything in my system. I have 3 case fans and a cpu + gpu fan other then these two.
Summary: Basically, you get what you pay for. Cheap fan = Nosy, bad construction. Bearings went out, and you could hear a grinding noise. This fan lasted a year and one month. From February 2015 to March 2016. Bought a Thermaltake Riing 12, for $18 dollars side by side the Thermaltake blows this one away.
Pros: - Pushes TONS of air, at the cost of being loud. - Cheap.
Cons: - Don't be fooled, this thing is loud. - LED Lights aren't that bright.
Summary: I bought 2, one started making a massively loud and annoying whining after about a month. Originally thought it was my GPU, but after about an hour of testing different components I discovered that one of these fans was the culprit.
Summary: I'd definitely purchase again. For the price, I can look past the slight noise.
Pros: Fan is great. Pushes a good amount of air & looks nice n' pretty! I have it on my side panel pushing air onto my GPU & my GPU is staying around 20 degrees cooler than it was before -EVGA GeForce GTX 960 4Gb FTW Gaming w/ ACX 2.0+ cooling- It's even keeping my CPU quite a bit cooler as well.
Cons: Only Con is that the fan is a little loud, but it isn't annoying or troublesome by any means.
