Summary Bought knowing about noise, its not bad at all. The cooling when using in a push-pull config with my corsair H60 rad is amazing. Resting sitting at 8-10 c and under load just in the mid to high 20's.
Looking forward to overclock , on sale for 13$
Just had to strip some screws to get it to seat into the rad. Was just too lazy to pick up proper one's but its mounted for now.
Cons - Loud... - 38mm thickness may pose compatibility problems, but it adds to it's functionality of High Static Pressure so I don't know if you can call that a con. - Cannot undervolt, unless you like ticking noises!
Summary Probably the most affordable perfomance 120mm fan for cooling radiators and such.
As a case fan, this could work too but I think it might be a little excessive (too loud). You could probably find another fan with similar CFM w/ less noise.
Cons 38mm thickness doesn't fit in tight areas Possibly the loudest fan out there
Summary This is by far the best 120mm fan in the market. Using it in my server with 5 HDDs. Temperatures dropped by 20 for CPU and 10 for the drives. Don't care much for the noise since it's tucked away. Definitely recommended for a server.
Summary Les fans sont de bonne qualité le flux d'air passe très bien dans mon quad rad mes température on baisser depuis que j'utilise ses fans. La fans est pas très chère et fait grandement la job! en plus j'ai des filtre a air et laisser moi vous dire que la perte d'entré d'air est minime.
Cons loud, big, cant fit inside of a case with the corsair h series
Summary i wanted to get alot of performance for the h50 without the cost, and i wasn't disappointed....i fit two these on a h50 with push/pull on a antec 1200, with a fan controller (that is set on 2200rpm - 2400). Then put the h50 on a i7 960 and now i'm at 4.0ghz with HT on at 38 to 40 c average idle temps. the cost to performance ratio is very good but then it also depends how much noise you like
Cons nothing, maybe a little thick to install into a PC
Summary I bought 4 of them to build myself a home air exchanger that would run on 12V because I own DIY solar panels.
I can't see what the fuss is about when people complain it's noisy... It is the 120mm fan that moves the most air at 133 CFM. It's bound to make a little noise. I can't imagine having 1 of these in my computer 2 feet away from my head though.
I have 4 of them that work all at once in the house and I can't say I am displeased with the ambient noise level. Had I wanted a totally silent system, I would have paid 600$+ dollars plus dock-work and installation for an air exchanger.
At 6.67$ price-matched each... They were a steal !
Installing these into a computer could prove a problem since their thickness. Check if you have the clearance first.
Pros -Not as loud as says -Moves a LOT of air -Made of high quality materials -feels sturdy
Cons -None. It does its job perfectly.
Summary This fan moves a lot of air and it's not as loud as people says. The loudness is more from the moving air and not from the motor. I used to have a Vantec Tornado and that's loud for me.
I may have gotten a silent one by luck and it's nowhere as loud as the videos on YouTube makes it out to be. Maybe I just have high tolerance of sound or my definition of loudness is not the same as most people.
I will get another Ultra Kaze soon as a front intake using a Cooler Master 4 in 3.
A thorough examination of the Slip Stream and Ultra Kaze line up from Silent PC Review:
"Our main goals are to determine how much air each fan moves, the noise it generates while doing so, and the nature of its acoustics. Through our analysis, we will try to determine which of Scythe's fans h
