Installation for the thing was pretty straightforward - you open the panel

Summary: So I have an NZXT Phantom case, and one of the most notable things about the case is that it ships with a few pre-installed fans. One of these is a 200mm fan that goes on the top of the case, with a slot clearly meant for a second fan of that size right besides it. This is apparently the ONLY fan that will fit this particular slot, so obviously I was going to get it so I could get that extra airflow.
Summary: It looks decent, and performs well enough. I guess I was expecting just a little bit more. It doesn't feel like it is moving that much air. 950rpm, sure isn't a lot, but even at the max rpm, it is not blowing tons of air. It sure is near-silent though, I'll give them that.
Summary: I have an NZXT Phantom case, so I'm not going to knock the fan for not fitting. But have two quarrels with this, one of which is not directly related to the fan itself: 1. The fan fits perfectly fine as a side fan. However, the screws that come with it are completely worthless. They do not fit into the side of the case. You actually need four screws that came with the case when you bought it.
Summary: This fan is specifically made to fit some NZXT cases ONLY, so buyer is warned. I had an older PanzerBox case (black), and had to write to the company as that is not listed as one of the cases for this fan.. I purchased this after their reply assuring me this would work, and it does fit in. My only gripe is the white fan color, in a black housing.
Summary: The Fans themselves work well but the screws that come with it will not work with the white nzxt phantom case which was why I gave it three stars. The screws that are on the case as it is now do not fit the spots in the fan to double your annoyance. Well I am off to get screws.
