Works great in my Antec 1000W Quattro PSU

  • Pros: moves enough air to cool my PSU and is much more quite than the stock fan in the antec trupower quattro. I only replaced the stock fan though cause it starting rattling.
  • Cons: None, its not the stupid natural/brown color like most Noctua's

Very quiet, at the cost of some airflow.

  • Summary: Buy this fan for quietness and (I hope, based on bearing spec) longevity, not for max airflow.
  • Pros: The goal is "quiet fan with the best CFM-per-decibel", and the Noctua wins that competition. It's not the highest flowing 80mm 1800 RPM fan there is, but it is the quietest at those specifications. Practically silent under 1100 RPM, and still quieter than most other fans at full 1800 RPM. While t...
  • Cons: None, as long as you accept the fact that all 1800 RPM fans flow less than even a cheap 2400 RPM fan.

Excellent!

  • Pros: Finally got around to replacing my aging journal bearing Cooler master branded fan. Glad I did, these fans are slick! PWM control and near silent operation. Buy these over anything, bit pricey but worth it! Don't see the point of limiting the speed with the adapter's it comes with, they aren't lo...

  • Pros: Moves a lot of air very quiet

Simply Amazing!

David C., Newegg
26 May 2015
  • Summary: Noctua could add a little color to maybe match case interiors but honestly dose not need to for me to keep using them on most builds.
  • Pros: Super quiet! Mounted in a case and running 2 of these guys alone as in picture. The room reads at between 42 and 48 db. With the meter exactly one foot above the fans the meter doesn't change. That is full speed not with the rpm limiting cables included. No one, absolutely no one can say these fa...
  • Cons: None.
