Summary: These fans suck. Or blow. Either way, they do well moving air. Not too noisy about it either. I use the system board bios to control the speed. At 100%, they do make some noise, but all fans do. These seem to move more air per decibel (unofficial) than the Corsair fans I also have at the same size.
Noctua Premium Fan for a truly silent system. Great fan.

Summary: This review is short. I ordered this to keep my cable box (HD-DVR) from misbehaving. I noticed it runs hot and I grabbed a cpu fan on a wimp and gave it a try by placing it on top of the unit. It cooled the box nicely but the noise was ridiculous.
Summary: I saw others online talking about how great Noctua fans were, and I thought it was all hype. I'm no stranger to high end cooling and fans for custom computers, so I was a little skeptical of all the praise this brand was getting for their frankly ugly fans (seriously, poop brown and tan?).
Summary: This is the best purchase I have made in a while. I bought two of these to use as intake fans inside my spec-01 case. Pure silent. Do not let the price of this bad boi scare you away, because it is worth every cent!!!!!
Summary: Noctua never fails to disappoint with their NF-A14 case fans. Runs extremely slow and extremely quite in addition to the anti-vibration rubber fan mounts that come pre-packaged with the unit, it's an unstoppable combination.
