Summary: I read lots of "OH MY AWESOME!" reviews and figured I would give this company a shot since I've never had a fan from them. I'm always looking for some high-flow low-noise fans (so far Panaflo is winning). So I bought this while on sale to try out. I won't be buying anymore, because although it is fairly quiet, it really doesn't push much air.
Pros: It is pretty quiet. Has nice rubberish bits that soften vibrations. Works well with my MB's 4pin sockets.
Cons: Doesnt really push THAT much air (at 100%). Ugly color (they really could sell 2x+ more of these if they came in black and red or blue or anything but brown).
Summary: I have another type of fans brand name is a type of wild cat and they are orange, they are also PWM and i think they are best for an overall value meaning (airflow,noise,price) I am tradeing the noctua's for another pair of these fans that i mention above but its just my opinion
Pros: It is pretty quiet, It pushes a fair amount of air, the noise adapters and rubber fittings are good which reduce vidration and noise through out your case.
Cons: They are not EXTREMELY quiet(dont get me wrong they are quiet but not extremely) Very expensive fans Dont push a hugemongous amout of air.
Summary: To benefit most out of this fan, keep it under 1250 RPM at all time and enjoy the absolute silence.
Pros: - Very quiet at 1250 RPM or below - Comes with extensions, adapters, rubberish bolts - Rubberized 4 corners for reduced vibration (removable) - Cables are sleeved
Cons: As mentioned in below feedback, when fan hits 1450 RPM, the noise gets significantly loud, probably louder than regular 1450 RPM fans. Tested with: 1x 1450 RPM Antec Kuhler fan 120mm 1x 1450 RPM Corsair 600T Case fan 120mm Comparing with those fans, they were much more quiet at 1450 RPM than Noctua fan at 1450 RPM. The loudness at 1450 RPM is not high pitched coil noise or anything but just louder.
Summary: I must admit im starting to get accoustomed to the colors of theese fans.. yes..yes i know... For my situation i prefier the silverstones over thees guys due to the fact the focused air is better and lowerd my temps more. However the silverstones are alot louder. For my sitution being that this is a pure entertainment build and not close to my face for gaming I have no issues with it being loud thus this is my second pick. They bothe move a good amount of air however.
Pros: After reading reviews for ages about theese and silverstones, decided to purchase them both. pros to this device is IT IS ALOT QUITER AT FULL. if you have a gaming pc that is closer to your face this will be the best choice for you. virtually silent. Nice amount of airflow. nice upgrade to my stock fans on my 600t.
Cons: I mean... who decided to pick theese colors???? doesnt match anything in my pc case!! Doesnt do as well in focused air as the silverstones i purchased so i decided to uses the silverstones for direct air on my heat sink and move the noctuas to the exhaust department of the case. Price is pretty up there... waited for the cupons from newegg before purchasing.
Summary: If you care about silence, I definitely wouldn't buy these. At top speed, they are the loudest component in my case and have a very distinctive drone.
That said, they shift huge amounts of air. These fans are supposed to be used on heatsinks, and they are very very good at forcing air through the fins---thus the noise. My CPU never reaches above 40C even in the summer heat. (Using the big Noctua heatsink).
Summary: Har två monterade i push/pull på radiatorn en Antec Kühler h2o 620. Man hör vibrationer när den körs över ca. 1100 rpm, annars är det enda som hörs luftflöde. Jag misstänker att detta beror på push/pull konfigurationen. Eftersom fläktarna presterar så pass bra redan vid 1000rpm klarar dom att hålla min överklockade 3570k 4 ghz runt 60 grader i full load. Mycket tystare än innan. Jag är nöjd!
Conclusion: Честно говоря немного разочарован. По сравнению с Noctua NF-S12B FLX ощутимо громче, возможно это связано с большей скоростью вращения...Поставил переходник на Low Noise, звучание стало вполне приемлемо. Еще некоторое неудобство вызвали 4pin коннекторы, но если использовать вентилятор в охлаждении процессора, то это даже плюс. В общем, как я понял, все эти резиновые накладочки и резиновые антивибрационные крепежи - одно баловство.
