Features for Scythe S-FLEX™ 12cm Case Fan
Equipped with Genuine S-FDB* Bearing
This fan is equipped with genuine S-FDB (SONY Fluid Dynamic Bearing) made by SONY corporation.
Market Leading Low-Noise Level
S-FDB technology drastically eliminates the friction between the bearing and the shaft which makes this fan nearly inaudible to human ears. Additional suction magnet optimizes the magnetic force balance within the rotor to achieve the absolute silence. To further achieve the absolute silence, the fan is equipped with the Linear drive IC for reducing electromagnetic noise.
Outstanding Long Life of 150000 Hours
Patent Pending "S-FDB" structure allows the fan to last up to 150000 hours.
Conventional ball bearing carries a point contacting structure for the rotation, which gives point supporting situations at dropping impact to damage ball bearing surface which could cause irregular noises. The S-FDB carries a surface contact mechanism for improved anti-shock structure, which is 5 times stronger than the conventional ball bearing.

I got this to supplement the stock cooling on my Cooler Master 690 II Advanced case. I found it pretty quiet, with only a very small change in the overall noise level of the system. Depending on system load conditions and ambient temperature, this lowered my case temp by 3 to 8 degrees. It is still quiet enough that I could sleep in the room next door.
Got this fan to use in a puch/pull on Coolermaster Hyper 212 cooler. it does an excellent job at moving the air. I noticed that the stock cooler has an almost unbearable whine at anything over 1500 RPM, so had to change MB settings to keep it below that. AMo going to order another of these to swap out the original.
This fan pushes a lot of air and works great for circulating a case or on heat sinks which don't require much static pressure. This fan should virtually last forever so you shouldn't have to worry about replacing it for a few builds.
Have two of these on my Thermalright Ultra 120 black edition hsf. They move a lot of air (1600 rpm) and are quiet. 1600 rpm seems to be the way to go for processor cooling. These have high static pressure and are thus excellent for heatsink cooling. Good ball bearing rated for long life. Excellent choice.
