A 120mm fan with adapters for 140mm

John M., Newegg
31 January 2013
  • Summary: The hardware to mount this fan is very complete. It has screws and soft rubberized mounts included so as to minize vibration transferred to the case. Seems to run nicely once properly installed and moves air decently. I have a total of 4 fans in my Fractal Design R4.
  • Pros: Nice fan design. Packaging is great. Lots of accessories included for mounting to various opening sizes.
  • Cons: Not really a 140mm fan. When shopping on Newegg for this item, I selected the "140mm" filter. Expected to find ONLY 140mm fans. Nope! This little jewel pops up as a 140mm fan when it is ACTUALLY 120mm. Some adapters from Noctuna allow you to mount it to 140mm mount points. But is certainly NOT a ...

  • Summary: Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be doing any better than the stock fan that came with my case as a bottom intake. I thought the Static Pressure was supposed to make this fan excel at such things.
  • Pros: Compact for a 140mm fan
  • Cons: 120mm fan mountings by default Extended mounting options are rather odd

Expected Better

  • Summary: Expensive for what you get. The low noise adapters are worthless since they prevent the fan from starting. My Rig: ASUS M4A79 Deluxe Motherboard AMD Phenom II X4 920 Corsair XMS2 DDR2-800 8GB Sapphire Radeon 4870 Graphics Card PC Power & Cooling Silencer 750W PSU Cooler Master HAF 932 Case
  • Pros: Moves a lot of air at full speed 1200 RPM. Anti-Vibration mounts. Sleeved cable.
  • Cons: Fan would not start when connected to any fan headers on my motherboard even with automatic fan control turned off in the BIOS. Had to connect directly to my Power Supply with 3-4 pin molex adapter to get fan to start. Fan is a bit loud at full speed for my taste. Tried using the supplied Low Noi...

  • Summary: un bon ventilateur, mais qui reste malgré tout plus bruyant que je l'avais espéré. Le bruit d'air brassé est clairement audible. Obligé de baissé sa vitesse de façon non négligeable au détriment de l'evacuation qui du coup depuis médiocre.

  • Summary: Ce ventilateur n'est silencieux que si il tourne lentement. Installé sur Corsair 645D , branché sur le rhéobus integré du boîtier en position minimale de, il faisait encore trop de bruit.

Moyeux bruyant a pleine vitesse, j'ai trouvé mieux...

  • Summary: Ok Noctua a une réputation de qualité, mais je trouve que le moyeu de ce ventilateur émet un bruit bien trop fort à pleine vitesse. Bien sûr, avec les réducteurs ça se calme, mais le débit chute beaucoup... J'ai acheté des Xigmatek Crystal que je trouve ultra silencieux pour un très bon débit d'air.

  • Conclusion: Не могу пройти мимо. Кто здесь пишет о тишине, производительности? Окститесь. На кулер поставил 14ку через резистор 120 Ом, крутится на 670-700об/мин, - тогда шум на фоне тихого системника не выделяется.12-ку запитал от 5В, т.к.
  • Pros: Долговечный эксклюзивный гидродинамический подшипник.
  • Cons: Низкая производительность. Высокий уровень шума. Дурацкий цвет
