Fail in vertical orientation

Jamie P., Newegg
17 August 2014
  • Pros: They worked for a month or so. Quiet. Inexpensive
  • Cons: I had two of these mounted at the front of my case to bring air in. After a month in a vertically-mounted position, they started to make a loud "screech" sound. I tested each independently, and each made the same sound. Replaced them with better quality fans. Now I'm happy.

Bad screws

Anonymous, Newegg
11 August 2014
  • Pros: Fan works as described.
  • Cons: The screws are short and not long enough to go into the actual fan as the design intends. I went to Home Depot and got replacement screws.

Bearing noisy in less than 6 months

Jonathan S., Newegg
31 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought two fans at the same time - one is holding out, the other started getting noisy within a few months. Not recommended -- spend a few more dollars on a better fan.
  • Pros: Relatively cheap
  • Cons: noisy

Nice Fan But Order was wrong Twice..

rmrmsix, TigerDirect.com
6 April 2014
  • Summary: I ordered the narrow case front fans twice and both times got the thicker body fans.. They work fine.. and had to modify the mount.. But work fine. Would have been better to get the right order either time though!

Cheap Fan

Zachary M., Newegg
20 March 2014
  • Summary: Very quiet and pretty cheap, but I would avoid if you plan to use anything other than the molex connectors for power.
  • Pros: I bought several of these fans at once, so I got them pretty cheap. They're very quiet which is the main reason I bought them. They also move an adequate amount of air. Nothing that drastically lowered case temps but it makes a difference none the less.
  • Cons: Right off the bat one of the fans three pin headers didn't work so I was not able to connect it to my mobo which was my original intent. Whatever no big deal I just moved it elsewhere in my case and used the molex connector. About a month later I have another fan that the three pin connector stops working on. I hope this is isn't a continued trend.

Quiet, but cheaply built

Samuel C., Newegg
19 March 2014
  • Summary: These were a nice addition to my case to supplement my much louder 100cfm fans.
  • Pros: I purchased two of these fans to supplement 100cfm fans in my case. They are virtually silent except for when I first installed one of the fans it was producing a light clicking noise. This stopped after a few hours. I assume this was a bit of plastic hitting the fins from the plastic molding process.
  • Cons: Cheaply built. The fans themselves feel somewhat fimsy, but what do you expect for ~$5 a fan for 2 of them.

Good silent case fans

john h., Newegg
9 March 2014
  • Pros: They work. They are fans. Not much can go wrong.
  • Cons: I didn't get that fancy discount when you buy more then one. Otherwise would rate 5 stars because I bought 4 of them.

3 years later

Eric M., Newegg
24 February 2014
  • Pros: Bought 6 of these over 3 years ago and they have been running ever since. No failures and they are all still very quiet. The value is looking better and better with age.
  • Cons: The 4-pin molex connectors are a pain, as the pins usually just push out rather than make the connection, requires some meddling with a tool to press them into place.
