Reviews and Problems with Cooler Master Silent Fan 120 SI2

Not powerful enough
24 March 2014
Summary: While I can appreciate the fact that these are the "economy" fans in a 4 pack.....They are pretty much useless. When compared to the other stock 120mm fans that came with my case, these cooler master fans just don't cut it.
Summary: They are very quiet. They're your average super basic fan. Don't push very much air at all, you can barely feel it. However unless you are building something that needs a lot of air movement they'll do fine. I just bought them for my entertainment center to move air up the towers.
Summary: It's hard to find a good, quiet, slim 80mm fan, but this one does the job, and well. The dimensions are 80x80x15 mm, whereas typical 80mm fans are 80x80x25 mm. Replaced a noisy and inefficient stock fan on a tiny HP Pavillion desktop. It's like having a new machine!
Summary: I got these as replacements for one of my fans that finally gave up the ghost after 10 years of use (a cooler master fan). So when I saw a package of 4 of these for 15 bucks, I jumped on the deal. These fans are quiet and reliable and will last and plug right into your motherboard.
Summary: These are good fans for the price but they are sleeve-bearing fans so they must be mounted so they are blowing horizontally (case of fan is vertical) otherwise they get noisier and have shorter lifespan. Not good for top case exhaust.
Summary: I installed all of these backwards, inadvertently creating massive amounts of correct airflow in the case. These fans literally make the stupid things you do turn out awesome. I keep one on me at all times in case I get in a jam and need to stupid my way out.
Summary: I had a few 5 W, 12 Vdc solar panels sitting around and decided to use them to create solar powered vent fans. These fans worked well for the project. Very quite and move enough air around to make them quite handy for the task I had for them.
Summary: Cheap and quiet, can't beat that. I read in forums that these weren't good for horizontal mounting like in the case of top mounting exhaust configuration. I haven't had any problems with these all the time I've had them.
