Summary: The AF140 Quiet Edition is an excellent fan, if your case can support 140mm fans. This fan is priced really well for the overall quality of the fan. It is able to push about 68cfm at max speed, which is still relatively quiet at full blast when compared to other fans. The key here is running this on a dedicated fan controller, or using your motherboard to control fan speed, because generally you don not need the fan on full blast.
Summary: This fan is amazing. It moves a great deal of air even at the 7v setting generally use. It's very quiet, even when used as a bottom intake, I can't notice any howling lie I got with cheaper fans. At 12v it performs even better, the only noise you will hear however is the air whooshing into the case-which can't be avoided no matter how nice the fan is.
Summary: I have bought and returned three of these in 2 days. Non will work. They hooked them up in the store (Tiger Direct) and nothing. I really want to use this fan for an unrelated project but sheeze; this is rediculous. Am I the only one having this problem?
Summary: I bought two of these AF140s and an AF120 for my PC case. They are quiet and seem to move air quite well. They have short power cables that connect conveniently to the motherboard. However, mounting them in the case is a challenge. The sound-reducing rubber inserts make turning the mounting screws almost impossible, and they pop out of the plastic body when pushed with even moderate force.
Summary: I'm really impressed with this. It's almost completely silent, and moves a TON of air. However, I have a few minor gripes about this. First off, all the wires are black, so I had no idea which pins were which. In a computer, this doesn't really matter, because there's pin headers, but I'm not using this in a computer. There was also no documentation at all. I had no idea what the little voltage 'adapter' was, I had to go looking on Corsair's website.
