Cooler Master Fans are Noisy
6 August 2014
Summary: There is normal fan noise caused by moving air and then there is bearing noise caused by poor design or material. The 2000 rpm fans have bearing problems that cause a irritating high pitched whine. This is causing problems for my customers. Go with a lower rpm fan for less problems.
Summary: I have a Thermaltake V3, and an Asus Sabertooth motherboard with a coolermaster evo cpu cooler. The fans won't fit anywhere, but up front, but the power cable isn't long enough to plug into the motherboard.
Summary: I have this fan installed on the front of my NZXT Phantom 410 case and, combined with the other four Cooler Master fans I have installed, does a great job of helping keeping my system cool. No problems with fan noise at any speed.
Summary: After the installation of this fan, right off the bat the total noise of my system went up significantly. A huge warning: This thing is really loud at max RPMs! After toggling it with SpeedFan the difference is really astounding.
Summary: The fans look great and do move a lot of air but they are not 19db of noise. I test the fans and on average they where 40db!! As well the fan does come with a 4 pin adapter which is not described in specifications or overview.
