Thermaltake A2492 Case Fan
12 August 2013
Excerpt: Quiet (initially) and has wonderful air flow. TT has good produts usually. Currently sounds like a berring is going out and I've only had it for 4 months. The final fan (which was the similar fan) lasted for just about 1.five years, so I got this one particular pondering I would most likely get about the very same from it. Doesn't look that way this time. When you purchase points that spin rapidly and have tiny components, it can be hit or miss.
Excerpt: For sleeve fans these are awesome. Quiet pushes excellent quantity of air. none I purchased 2 of these without having realizing they had been sleeve bearing fans and installed them. They are quieter and push much more air than the apevia's they replaced so I bought 5 more switched out all my fans and my video card and cpu temps dropped 2c. I have a NZXT case with 7 120mm fans and you wouldnt believe that with as tiny noise that they make.
Excerpt: Quite quiet - I essentially didn't notice it went out. Airflow was wonderful. Right after 9 months of use the fan bearing locked up. The energy continued to flow which generated a lot of heat. This didn't cause any harm simply because I caught the issue quickly enough. Also, it's not flashy. This came preinstalled in the Thermaltake case, so I didn't pay for it, but it's not a lengthy term solution.
Excerpt: The pro is thermaltake. I like the new design and style with far more fins, as this increases airflow. The RPM and 120mm size keeps the fan relatively silent. I only use 120mm fans since they are a lot more silent. I only trust my thermal management to thermaltake. I have been buying Thermaltake fans for years, and these fans typically do not last more than 1 year. In some cases, these fans burn up in six monthes.
Excerpt: Speed is NOT a greater priority more than size when selecting a fan. That doesn't even make any sense. When selecting a laptop case or CPU fan, the ONLY two items that matter are dBA and CFM. In other words, how loud and how significantly air it moves. Size and AND speed figure out the performance of the above criteria, and as a matter of truth they're inversely proportional to every other.
Excerpt: Moves a lot of air. I could barely really feel the air flow in and out with my old fan. I can really feel this one particular. Keeps my case and CPU quite cool. Louder than expected, although I normally only notice at evening and the noise isn't too irritating. Still, there is no way this is a 17 dBa fan. The fan that shipped with my case would at times not start. Even when it did, my CPU temps have been pushing above 50 degrees C.
