DOA

John P., Newegg
18 January 2015
  • Summary: I got this about a month and a half ago as my CPU fan was making noises and on the verge of failing. Well it finally failed and I went to replace it with this unit - no luck. Ended up cannibalizing an older computer but much noisier now and will need to go through the process again.
  • Pros: Nice packaging
  • Cons: Doesn't work

  • Summary: Like some of the other reviews said, I did not receive the pwm version. The header only had 3 pins, not 4.

The description says NF-R8 PWM, but you really just get a NF-R8

etc6849, Amazon
27 November 2012
  • Summary: This item is a scam! I'll post a picture. What amazon sends is a fan with a barcode that says NF-R8 PWM, while the box says NF-R8!?! Further, the product you receive has only 3-pins instead of the 4-pin adapter most motherboards use.

Differences between 3 and 4 wire NF-R8 fans

Dane L. Ryan, Amazon
16 December 2008
  • Summary: Let's be clear here people. The "NF-R8" is a 3 wire fan and is not pulse width modulated by your motherboard for quiet running. The "NF-R8 PWM" IS a pulse width modulation capable fan that can be controlled by the motherboard. The PWM capable fan has 4 wires.

Dålig

CheeLoo, Prisjakt
21 November 2008
  • Summary: Inte prisvärd om man vill ha en tyst fläkt. Köpte för att ersätta orginalfläkten i min Silverstone HTPC-låda, men orginalfläkten får sitta kvar. Den här fläkten är gämförelsevis bullrig, blåser sämre och vibrerar påtagligt. Hamnar i soporna. 160 spänn och en timmes mekande i sjön.
