So good.

  • Pros: I have 3 of these fans, they are absolutely fantastic and the knob mount in the card slot is exactly what I needed. Awesome airflow and great adjustability.
  • Cons: Fans make sound. If you can't deal with it, computers might not be for you.

  • Pros: Very good, strong and definitly worth it
  • Cons: For some reason when I turn it on it wouldn't... and by simply moving the electric wire here and there it would turn on randomly

  • Pros: • High airflow • Nifty fan controller
  • Cons: • Not very pretty unless you love white. • In order to use this with a fan controller other than the one included you have to put a jumper in the 2 pin controller cable. Wish it was just a single 3-pin • I ordered three, and all three worked, but one short circuited after installing in my case.

Oh so COOL...

  • Summary: A fan is not just a FAN...
  • Pros: These suckers got some power! For real!! I like the nice white color as well. One feature that initially attracted me to the Silverstone FM 123 fans is the fan controler. It fits into a expansion slot and you can attach up to 3 fans to 1 controller unit.
  • Cons: The screws were very hard to screw into the four corner holes. I suggest starting the screws outside the case during installation or even screw all the way in then remove in order to loosen the holes. Also, the removing of the knob from the controller unit and attaching it to another controller u...

So quiet that I can't even hear it

  • Summary: DOA. For this cost you would think that they had some or ANY quality control. I've made two purchases from Silverstone, my first and last. Enough said.
  • Pros: Package was easy to open.
  • Cons: Cost. Really expensive when you throw in the cost to ship it back.

OH SILVERSTONE...

  • Summary: I have looked at fan reviews on other sites, lame I know right... But this fan has been rated well by a number of different sites. Just type in Silverstone FM123 fan reviews and you will see.
  • Pros: Great fan... *Speed Control *White Color *Nice CFM *2 Ball Bearing *Reliable *NO LEDS THANK YOU
  • Cons: Price. But worth it if you think about how long it will last. Could also reuse for your next build.

Excellent!

  • Summary: I bought these for my first-time build, and I am very satisfied. My processor runs hot, but these have no trouble keeping my box cool. I recently put in a 10k RPM hard drive, and it runs ice cold (literally) behind the fan running 40%. I will definitely stick with SilverStone in the future.
  • Pros: They were relatively easy to install. Everything is well-built and sturdy. Speed control works like a charm. I bought 2 of these and a 3rd 80mm, and hooked then all up to the same speed control panel with some effort to get the tabs out. It moves a lot of air quietly - sometimes it feels like an ...
  • Cons: It gets loud at full speed, but I have no reason to ever need that much air flow.

Nice

Gregory S., Newegg
26 March 2009
  • Pros: No LEDs and comes with a fan controller. The fan controller has space for 2 other dials, so I'm assuming if you pick up three of these fans, you can control them all from one spot. Fan is very quiet on low to about half, after that it becomes audible from under my desk. Doesn't need to be turned ...
  • Cons: Controller install in a PCI slot location. Take over an x1 slot that isn't being used and it isn't a problem.
