Summary: I got two of these fans when they were on sale for $6 CAD and they are performing admirably so far. Everything about their packaging screams quality. Less hideous than Noctua and easier to find than Be Quiet! these are a great option for silence freaks.
Pros: Extremely quiet Includes 2 mount methods: rubber standoffs and screws. Molex adapter included for motherboards with limited fan support. Very powerful/focused airflow Orange corner highlights are actually rubber inserts to further reduce vibration no matter the mounting method. Feel very durable
Pros: Fan was great, originally gave it 5 stars but mine has recently started to die, well below the advertised 300k hours.
Cons: Purchased this fan just over 2 years ago, Feb 2013 according to newegg. However recently the bearing have started to go out so I get this continuous high pitch noise that's can't be ignored. Likely a defect and it's possibly under warranty, but for a $15 fan I doubt it's worth the time and cost t...
Summary: I got this and a 200 megaflow fan from coolermaster for my top fan and this is the quietest PC I ever seen even when gaming. On idle all my fans turn off and I own the RM series power supply so that fan never turns on below 400 watts which my equipment doesn’t use that much power at load.
Pros: This fan is so quiet and I tried looking my best for fans to get this Looks pretty cool I guess I don’t see it in my case
Cons: Was making a sound when I first got it but its fine now
Summary: I'm not quite sure what another reviewer was talking about in regards to using these mounted horizontally. It's possible that he got a bad sample; I've got two on the top of my case that are near silent.
Pros: - I have run no less than four of these in my main rig going on two years. -Not dead-silent, but probably one of the best fans you'll find in regards to flow/decibel ratio.
Cons: -You either love or hate the orange. Cougar does offer fans in black though.
