Solid Fans

  • Pros: Good flow and good aesthetics. Orange and black is uncommon but a great combo if you ask me.
  • Cons: They are not the quietest fans ever, but they are not loud either.

Good fan, but loud

sarah m., Newegg

  • Summary: Great fan, cheap, works as it should. Only problems I ran into with this fan is the short cord and noise.
  • Pros: The fan was simple to install. I installed two of these in my NZXT Phantom case on the door. They work really well and keep my hard drives cool.
  • Cons: Very loud. Most 120mm fans are gonna be much louder than larger fans do to the higher rpms, but the noise level from these fans are just too high. It also has very short cords.

Pretty good

  • Summary: This is a nice fan if you're looking for a orange cream theme. It's definitely on the loud side, but works really well. I have it as my front fan and it works great, if you can get over how annoying the sound can be in a quite room.
  • Pros: Comes with an adapter keeps everything cool
  • Cons: Doesn't make an orange light Loud

  • Summary: Im using 3 of these on my RX 360 watercooling rad, not the best for that since the static pressure is low but they look to good not to use when visible. Would be better for case fans
  • Pros: Best looking LED fan on the market
  • Cons: Low Static Pressure (For heatsinks and rads)

Cool fans

  • Summary: Good fans for someone looking for a new look and quieter cooling for their PC!
  • Pros: -A little quieter than my stock rosewill blue LED fans that came with my blackhawk case. -The white LED's with the orange blades is pretty awesome, if you're looking for something different from the usual red/blue/green setup, these could help differentiate your PC from everyone else's.
  • Cons: -The orange isn't as bright as you would think, I looked up some YouTube videos of these fans and they looked pretty bright, but they won't light up a dark room or anything. - I bought 4 of these bad boys, and one of the white LED's on one of the fans doesn't work, which kinda stinks but isn't th...

  • Summary: Bought 5 of these fans to throw in a gaming case that i have and i'm more then pleased with them, however i'm having to RMA two of them due to not being the correct size. Needed a 3/4 inch thick version but unfortunately xigmatek does not make one in that size.
  • Pros: Great value, great air flow, great colors, quiet, fast.
  • Cons: None.

Interesting

Christopher D., Newegg

  • Summary: Brightness increases with fan speed.
  • Pros: Very pretty looking. At an angle you will get 4 orange lines, 2 white lines emanating from the blade. Straight on you get 4 of each. The edge glows lighter orange than the rest making a very cool effect.
  • Cons: Louder than normal, I run at 40% voltage and there still a bit loud. Orange/red/black wires detract from the over all look.

  • Summary: Got exactly what I expected for the price range. A very nice looking fan with above average but not elite noise and air temp control.
  • Pros: Nice looking fan. The white LED on an orange fan gives a good color without looking overly gimmicky. Used to replace old fans on an Antec 900 case. Idle sound is just as quite (though different pitch) keeps everything just as cool as well
  • Cons: It does seem to run a little louder under heavy stress than the old fans did. Not much worse and the air seems to move just as well.

Great case fans but doesn't last long.

Ginero C., Newegg
26 January 2013
  • Summary: I'm pretty sure this are Sleeve bearings. I wonder when did they change it to Fluid Circulative Bearing(whatever that is).
  • Pros: These are great. The white LEDs are bright. Silent fan and moves a ton of air. Great for Air cooling heat sinks.
  • Cons: The white lights only takes a couple of months to wear off and go dim. Sleeve bearing didn't last long.
