Summary: The anti-vibration adapters are really annoying ti install especially for the rear exhaust near the gpu and IO shield.
Pros: Anti-vibration mounts silent efficient. I used them to replace an old 200mm intake fan and as rear exhaust on my cm haf 932 advanced. I only used one of these as intake since I'm planning to upgrade my case as well and these are the only fans I need, yet my system has never been cooler (WOW). I'm currently using the low-noise adapters and the fans are almost dead silent. I might be the only one but I actually like the color. so that's even a plus for me. But waht's re...
Pros: Since I place a very high value to having a quiet computer, these fans are well worth the premium price. I installed three of them, one exhaust fan for a water cooler radiator, and the other as two intake case fans. I cannot hear a thing when they are running under full load.
Summary: I own multiple of these Noctua fans, in all different sizes. I've never had one fail or do anything other than for what it was designed. I'm a huge fan of Noctua now, and after so many years the color has even grown on me, and I wouldn't want anything else.
Pros: Runs smooth, ultra quiet, does exactly what it was meant to do.
Summary: Newegg's shipping is out of this world, ordered with the super saver shipping on Saturday and had them delivered on Monday.
Pros: Outstanding. I'm new to the closed loop water cooling world, so I thought that I was just getting what I paid for when I installed the stock fans that came with my H100i. I was so wrong. These things are keeping my CPU just as cool with half the RPMs and sitting here I can't even hear them running with my system idling. There's a mechanical whirry sound that the corsair stock fans kick out, I didn't realize how bad it was until I switched to the silence of these Noctu...
Cons: Their ugly paint design is like a battle scar you should bear with pride. Be OG elite and don't go with the all black industrial fans, brown fanz for life.
Summary: Many people disapprove of the color scheme that Noctua has, but I personally don't mind it. When people see my fans, they're like "Noctua fans, nice," because you can easily pick a Noctua fan out with having their color scheme. I would recommend you pick these fans up because I haven't had a single problem with them and they're dead silent.
Pros: You can tell as soon as you feel the box that this is meant to be a high quality product. You can also tell from the sheer weight of the fan that it's built quite well, and the material that the fan is made out of doesn't feel cheap, as many other fans can be. The fan is also the most quiet fan I've ever had, especially when compared to some cheap brand. Also, if you ever have a problem with your fans, although quite rare, you get a SIX YEAR warranty.
Summary: I read about Noctua fans being a sought after commodity for quiet reliability and they are, so far. With a long warranty and an assortment of connection wiring and silent plug installation for vibration free installations! I thought when I hooked one up to feel it blow air, it would not due the trick but their design efforts really does push air through my Corsair H105 ! I am very pleased!! You will be also buy some!!
Pros: Quiet extremely so Everything that's rated about these fans is true !There are several different connector plugs that are included, a Y cable , a 10" single cable and a speed reducer cable to slow it down plus 4 silicone inserts to attach it to the back of the case.
Cons: Pricing is a little high but you get what you pay for .Though some would argue that one!!!
