Pros: I am not one to spend $15+ for a single fan. However I needed something quiet and powerful for my new build so I gave this a shot. This fan is designed to be quiet yet get the job done. I hooked this up in my Silverstone Temjin TJ08B-E as an exhaust fan and wow does this thing move some air! -Hyd...
Cons: Cost, however this is justified given the quality of the design and performance of the unit.
Pros: Worked great for a few months. Good speed and controllable. Very quiet when it was new
Cons: After a few months this thing is obnoxiously loud like someone is sticking a ziptie in it. It only happens for the first 0-10 minutes when the computer is first started. I usually can get it to stop by banging the front of the case really hard.
Summary: The rubber plugs are very easy to use you just need to keep tension on the tab until it seats. In some tight area's you may not be able to get a hold of the tab to pull it, using a needle nose pliers can work just don't tear the rubber.
Pros: Quiet, rubber grommets and rubber mounting plugs are great for a vibration free install. I have several of these for several months now and they work great with speed control on my motherboard although they really aren't loud at full speed anyway.
Summary: I have four (4) of these installed in my case. They provide great airflow and are very quiet. The rubber vims on the corners are well padded and work. The rubber mounts were tough to install sometimes. But are manageable, just have to have patience.
Pros: Air Flow Quietness Construction Quality Inexpensive
Cons: Rubber mounts are somewhat difficult to install
Summary: Bought these to replace two Cooler Master Sleeve-bearing fans whose bearings called it quits after a year and a half (probably due to them being mounted horizontally instead of vertically). Will see how these do in the coming years!
Pros: Sleek Design Construction seems pretty solid. Cables are sheathed in a rubber covering, so that's nifty. Anti-Vibration Pads are part of the fan's design. Quiet enough, though the difference between my CM 120's at 19Db and these at 17Db is probably so minute one really couldn't tell without a sou...
Cons: Only real con other than the price (which is still cheaper than most other Fluid-Dynamic Bearing fans), is that the one I had to pull air in from the top made the most aggravating noise imaginable (envision a stadium full of vuvuzelas, playing distantly in the background). Flipped it around to an...
Summary: Wish I had found these about a year earlier.
Pros: These fans are extremely quiet and flow a good volume of air through my case. They're optimized for silence with no tools needed rubber studs. They also come with metal screws, but I didn't need to use those. Recommend these highly!
Cons: The molex to 3 pin power connectors aren't so great. The molex pins are slightly misaligned so you really have to force a connection in a way that makes me uncomfortable. I used the 3 pin connections from the fans to my mobo instead. Don't let this stop you. These are excellent fans.
Summary: I have had a few of these for some time now, going on a few years, with absolutely zero issues. I would definitely recommend this fan, and will continue purchasing these as long as they are available.
Pros: Virtually silent, unique aesthetics, great price
