Cons Collects dust on blades, gets a bit hot at the centre
Summary bought as a 5 pack, was on sale for $25, couldn't pass that deal up, needed the extra air flow at the time, and now they sit on either side of my H50's radiatior, another sits at the bottom front of my case, blowing across my drives, another fan sits behind the drives aimed at my GFX card, and a fifth sits at the back of my case as an exhaust fan. No issues with noise or durability, nor cooling. Good, cheap, efficient.
Pros - colour scheme (not in all situations obviously) - price - sleeving? (see below)
Cons - they buzz - sleeving is pretty so-so, it might as well not be there
Summary So I finally gave in after a long time and bought the five-pack on sale. I wasn't expecting them to be better, or even as good as, the Noctua fans (my favourites now, since I am all about extremely quiet computers) but I did have some expectations based on the general consensus that these are THE "poor-man's" quiet fans when undervolted...
... long story short, these fans were a HUGE disappointment! All 5 of them buzz like it's going out of style. Obviously not a sample variance; it also seems to be a common occurence now according to the internet tubes. I can see how they could be quiet when slowed down, but as it is, that just makes the buzzing much more pronounced.
Absolutely useless to me, and I highly doubt I will be able to use them in a build for anyone else either.
Pros Good airflow, low CFM, nice colour combo, sleeved wires, low noise, long wires, great price
Cons not pwm ready,
Summary I bought these to go on my low cfm rad (Swiftech mcr320), they keep cool and oc'd to 4.222mhz running at 23 to 27celcius on full load. I used another as an exhaust fan and the colour compliments my case mods. Long wires which was my original concern and routed very easily to my fan controller without the need of extensions, my case is a (HAF 932) it only has 3 pin connectors but they are really intended just for case fans anyways so it's not a problem. They are very quiet and they are reasonably priced and it's pretty much a steal for good quality fans.
