Summary: Ultra quite is what I was looking for. This seemed to be the fan that had a decent amount of airflow for silence.
Pros: Fan runs great but not completely silent, it has a very low hum. The information does not mention it but these fans run at 1700-1800 RPM so you get a good airflow. The flexy pins are actually realy cool cause they are easy to lock into place. The pin idea is definately different but I see the pro...
Summary: Lovely color, but if you aren't a fan of bright fans (lol) the blue may bother you.
Pros: Nice color, TOTALLY silent. Seriously. It comes with a little wire you can put on to lower the voltage and run the fan slower; I put it on, no sound at all. I took it off, no sound at all. All this and it moves a great amount of air.
Cons: The silicone pegs it came with were a bit flimsy. One of them broke while trying to install the fan to my case. However, when I replaced the broken one with a regular screw, it didn't matter because the fan still made no sound. No loss of egg because the fan trumps the pegs.
Summary: The silicon grommets are really neat, but I've found that they are extremely difficult to work with, with some case fan bracketry. They do provide a very cool environment, keeping my overclocked (3.6Ghz from 2.6Ghz) Quad Core at a very cool 40 degrees celcius under moderate load.
Pros: Great cooling, exceptional price
Cons: Although these fans have a low DB rating, the quiet humming noise at their maximum 1800 RPM can be annoying, but it is expected with any air cooled systems.
Summary: I wish they would make a faster LED fan that goes up to 3500 rpm. If they did, it would probably have a louder motor. Even if you don't use a windowed-case, these LED fans exude a hazy glow on the case ports. Zalman has a very quiet yet strong air-flow case fan.
Pros: This blue-LED fan makes an excellent case fan (intake or exhaust). It's not too loud, even at 1800 rpm. At 1000 rpm it is virtually silent. It can be used for CPU and VGA cooling, but I like to use a faster rpm fan for CPU overclocking like the Thermaltake blue-LED 2800 rpm fan. I used the green-...
Summary: Intel D865GLC-L, Intel P4 2.8GHz 533FSB SKT478,Scythe Ninja Heat Sink with 120mm Fan, 3Gig ram, Diamond Radeon 9550 with 256MB AGP, 80Gig Seagate SATA with 8MB, Lite-On SATA DVD Writer, Gateway Pinta Desktop Mid-Tower Case with 80mm exaust fan
Pros: Attached this to my Scythe Ninja Heat Sink (which is actually designed for Athlon 64 use) on my Pentium 4 SKT 478 chip and this thing never goes above 110 Degrees Fahrenheit even at 100% load. Fairly queit too, my gpu fan is actually louder than this.
Summary: Newegg = awesome, came to my house day after i ordered.
Pros: Very nice and bright LED's, Very silent.
Cons: Now, i wish Zalman could have stated that this Fan doesnt support Mobo Connections, or at least the motherboard i have. Apparently, since this is a "Silent" fan, they dont let you control the fan speed of this fan. Unless i can find another way to control it, im keeping the rating at a 3.
