Grinding sound

Anonymous, Newegg
21 December 2015
  • Summary: Had this 120mm fan for a while - it's mounted in a Sentey case (Classic series) facing upward - blowing air upward through the top of the case. Here's the thing - after maybe less than 6 months, it started making a grinding noise.
  • Pros: red light?; moves air well
  • Cons: sharp blades - I've cut myself twice working around the fan; makes grinding noise only months after purchase

Loud and Dim

Adam C., Newegg
5 July 2015
  • Summary: Don't get sleeve bearing fans if you want to run them horizontal. Learned the hard way, go for hydro bearing, or something that won't get crazy loud.
  • Pros: - eh, nothing really comes to mind, considering all the other offerings out there
  • Cons: - really poor LED, super dim, doesn't really do much for effect - didn't play well with NZXT fan controller, super loud and obnoxious...has something to do with under-volting, I guess

Disappointed

Anonymous, Newegg
3 May 2015
  • Pros: Pushes a LOT of air. Way more than any stock fan I've used. Red LEDs look really nice, good color, not over powering. Pretty quiet for about a year.
  • Cons: Lasted *just* over a year. 1 year and a few days. If its mounted vertically, it makes a noise like one of the blades is heavier than the rest. If horizontal, it makes a noise similar to the crackle you hear from a HDD. I'm assuming the bearing is shot, which is a real disappointment since the war...

Lasted a Year

Christopher D., Newegg
29 April 2015
  • Summary: I've been a long time fan of Coolermaster (I own a Cosmos II) so I don't think it's Coolermaster's fault this went all bad, I own a second Coolermaster fan of the same type and it's got no issues (though I think I hear a rattling every now and then).
  • Pros: Good high speed fans and can move a decent amount of air flow.
  • Cons: First and foremost, the installation was a bit of a pain, I'm never a fan of fans that have to have the screws threaded into the plastic. Makes for a difficult install (at least in my opinion). Secondly, within a year the center fan in the top of my case started to make rattling sounds like the b...

Not meat for silent

Timothy G., Newegg
15 April 2015
  • Summary: Anyone who does not care about a silent PC its a good buy
  • Pros: Nice looking fans, good LED red tone.
  • Cons: Lets start that my main focus is to build a PC as quiet as I can while not breaking the bank. and with red LEDs Based on reviews some saying that the fan was loud others saying that it was OK once you controlled the RPM (which I have a fan controller), I went ahead and bought two. To my surprise ...

Mediocre at best

Anonymous, Newegg
29 March 2015
  • Pros: It is a cheap fan with decent looking cables. They aren't terribly loud even at full speed.
  • Cons: After about a month they started squeaking in oscillating manner relative to the speed I used on the fan controller. I usually have them off now because of this unless it is really hot.

Cheap but noisy

MOHAMMED A., Newegg
20 February 2015
  • Pros: Cheap and looks good. Good selection of LED colors.
  • Cons: Mediocre air flow but the biggest con is the noise. These things are very whiny (I got 2 of them). Changing aux fan speeds from bios did not change the fan speed, it kept running at 1900rpm. I ended up removing them and using the 80mm fans that came with the case. Not recommended.

Whines, dont buy

Keating P., Newegg
13 February 2015
  • Summary: I bought 3 of these for a new build, thinking that a nice green light-scheme would look great. The good news is it does look cool, the bad news is that these fans produce an obnoxious and high-pitched whine, making them entirely useless unless you enjoy the sound of a mosquito.The case fans that...
  • Pros: Moves air, nice green LED
  • Cons: Whines to the point that it is un-useable

Replacement fan for cooler master v8 cpu cooler

TROY B., Newegg
30 January 2015
  • Pros: quiet when first ordered
  • Cons: at just 6 months and 8 days of operation this fan started making noise, and when i restart my computer windows recognizes that there is a problem with the fan. I have many other cooler master fans and products and have never run across a problem this early on in the equipment's life cycle. I don'...
