Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Been having two of these fans for about 3 months now. Bought them mainly because of looks. I'm not the type to leave bad reviews on products for no reason, and I think people should be aware of a couple of things. The white LED's have a pretty purplish hue to them, so if you're planning on pairing these with White Led's or other white LED fans of a different manufacturer, be aware that the colors will most likely not match. I have a phanteks 140 white LED in my case and the color difference is pretty noticeable. Also, I installed both of these fans as intakes on the front of my storm stryker. The bottom fan has developed a rattle that seems to be brought on when the fans ramp up speed then slow back down. The only real way to fix it is to remove the covers from the front of my case and push/pull the fan hub in and out until it stops. Overall i'm not impressed and will not be buying these fans again. I can say though that the two noctua NF-F12's I purchased as radiator fans at...
This is a powerhouse that is able to keep quiet as well. I have 6 of these in my case and the temps of the components that it passes over are better than I have been able to get to date with this build. I do have my CPU in a closed loop water cooler/radiator, but the graphics card, 9 hard drives and 4 other PCI cards are all at or below the recommended range.
The only fans that you will find do a better job are not on amazon, they are to be found on the PC only component sites selling for about $48 at this time. Once I bought a few I realized that there was no need to spend that kind of money to make things run cooler it that is possible. The only thing beyond these fans to keep my GPU cooler would be to add a water block and cool with an expensive ($300) upgrade requiring that I dissemble the card, which I never have been comfortable with on components so sensitive. Plus the water block would have to be purchased from the UK making it a tough sale and lots of extra...
I've heard mixed reviews about this fan, but took the plunge when amazon had it for sale and glad I did. The LED lights are a nice bright green that aren't exactly blinding or annoyingly bright, installation is pretty self explainitery and after a month of heavy use, haven't had any problems with rattling or buzzing. It's surprisingly quite. But it's a little thick, so make sure you have room in your case.
