Cons: Both fans had broken blades on arrival, and one of the two fans was an already opened box. Will be returning these two fans, and buying another product. I gambled after reviewing all the reviews, I knew they might suck, and they are very bad. But I'm even more disappointed that one of the boxes is already opened and taped shut with masking tape. The seller must assume I won't send it back, or try to argue that I opened the package. I don't like being taken advantage o...
Summary: Spend an extra 2-3 bucks and buy a Cougar fan. Higher production quality, quieter, more airflow.
Pros: Blows an okay amount of air... Name brand. Matches case. Built in fan 3 speed fan controller (could almost be a con for me actually because of the extra cable management now needed)
Cons: - Very loud on full power. Much louder than the 26db (or whatever) that the description claims. At about a meter, its more around 40db. - Correct on the airflow description, but none of it is centralized; the air practically curves around the outside edge, so if you need more precision for whatever you're doing, this is not the fan for you.
Summary: The fan itself, however, is nearly flawless. There are now 4 of these 140mm fans + 1 120mm fan in an NZXT Elite Source 210 box I recently put together and though I can hear the fans, I am amazed at how quiet it is compared to my expectations.
Pros: Great fans. They push a lot of air without making a lot of noise. Plus they look nice and feel sturdy.
Cons: This wasn't true for the 3-pin connector, but the molex adapter piece that comes with this fan is pretty lousy. The pins kept getting pushed out as I tried to attach it to an opposing molex connector. The pins simply didn't align, even with a little adjusting with a pin/prong tool. Even worse is the 3 pin male connector on this molex adapter. Between two of these fans, only one came with a 3pin male to 4pin molex adapter that ACTUALLY worked. (the other was simply so ...
