I bought this fan to replace an older Antec fan that became noisy. Replacing this fan was not easy for me because this fan does not come with silicone grommets. My original fan was installed that way, and it's in an Antec case. Zalman includes the grommets even with their $8 fans. Reusing the old grommets was not easy because they are not designed for that. The fan came with mounting screws, but they did not fit the holes in my case where the grommets were.
As for the fan itself, it's quiet and works well. The temperature causes the fan's speed to vary, and the fan seems to be doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The package shows a chart with examples of speed, air flow, noise, etc. at various temperatures. When I installed it, my case had been open. The fan started out at about 1100 RPM, which would be appropriate for a temperature of somewhere between 25 and 30 degrees C. I used software to monitor the fan speed as well as temperatures such as my motherboard's. I...
I bought this fan for my heatsink (Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme). I hear a little noise coming from my case, but I know that some of that noise is due to the one 80mm fan that's mounted to the top of the case. For this fan, I'd most likely have to open up the case and listen to find out if its contributing to whatever, little noise I hear (could be the sound of the air going through the fins of the heatsink). Either way, my PC remains rather quiet in a room that is pretty much dead silent most of the time.
Unlike traditional fans where the speed is set manually, these fans automatically adjust the speeds as the system temperature changes. The fans are quiet but there should still be a setting to adjust temperature sensitivity. My system temperature is around 55 degrees Celsius whereas before it was a couple of degrees cooler.
