Summary: If you plug it directly into a power supply course, it will function at 2000rpm, which gives you lots of air flow, but also loud noise. it's better to connect it to the motherboard(chassis fan plug) so you can adjust the speed. the led effect is not as clear as the pic shown above.
Summary: Not sure where Cooler Master got that 19db noise rating from. Maybe as an exhaust at 60-70% rpm it's true. However on full blast as an intake. I can hear the fan whining from 30+ feet away. While you can't get a better fan for the price. This one doesn't come without problems. I'd really recommend have a fan controller to turn it down. Especially if you plan to use it as an intake. Or picking up some 7v adapters.
Pros: Great as an exhaust fan, No noise with a 7v adapter, Moves quite a bit of air, Solid construction, Clean aesthetics, 5$
Cons: Box specs are a lie, Loud whining noise at max rpm as an intake, Weak spot light LED compared to other fans
Summary: Bought this fan when on daily deal and had no problem installing. Blew a lot of air around and looked good. Only problem I had was the noise. Fan is quite loud and I ended up taking that fan out and putting in 2 other ones I bought.
