Introduction
Traditional computer fans are made to expel air, so for years, airflow was the most important rating that determines cooling efficiency as most fans are used as exhausts. SilverStone create d Air Penetrator fan specifically designed for intake fan applications, where airflow rating is not a priority. The design goal for Air Penetrator is to focus airflow into a column that can be channeled through various obstacles inside the modern computer case for more efficient cooling performance. Compared with traditional fans, where airflow spreads outward and further looses focus with resistance added (e.g. filters, fan guards, etc…), Air Penetrator fan’s unique blade and grille designs can create  enough pressure to push air as far as 1 meter away with minimal fan speed and noise. This unmatched efficiency makes Air Penetrator ideal not only as intake case fan, but also perfect for high density heatsinks and radiators.

Special Feature
Industry leading air channeling fan.
Wide fan blades for reducing air resistance.
Standard 120mm frame for maximum compatibility with CPU coolers.
Integrated air channeling grille double as fan guard to reduce overall size.
Low power consumption.
The Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) for high reliability.

Pros
- Cools specifically whatever you aim it at without airflow dispersing.
- Fairly quiet.
Cons
- No PWM version.
Summary
For funnelled directional cooling, these fans can't be beat. I started with just one, and now have three functioning as case intakes and running off the same fan controller for consistency.

They're not whisper quiet at full speed, but the sound isn't at all annoying either.

Pros
Seems to move air pretty good. And in a straight line too. Not noisy.
Cons
wish they were PWM fans but can't have everything.
Summary
Overall good fans and would definately purchase again.

Pros
Its quiet, it moves air efficiently and it's SilverStone so you know its a well made product.
Cons
None that I can think of, its well designed and at a decent price.
Summary
I really like this fan, it doesn't have any lights which is a good thing for me cause I have it mounted at the top of my case near the cables n stuff for an intake and it doesn't make any noise or produce light which is what I need in a fan. I don't remember what plug I used but I'm happy with the setting.

Pros
Super quite, braided fan cable, voltage reducers
Cons
None
Summary
I bought this to replace the CM fans I had on my Cool It ECO unit.
I found in my CM690 they made a terrible whirring noise, it turned out to be a symptom of the fan grill on the case as the penetrators still made the noise but much much quieter. I put the 5V fan reducer on the outside fan pulling air in and 12V on the inside and it runs silent now. Along with that temps have gone down a few extra degrees as a bonus, I highly recommend these.

Pros
Quiet when low, well-built, good accessory kit. Cables are long and sleeved.
Cons
Price - however, they are good fans
Summary
I use two for intake and they're doing their job. I haven't compared them to other fans in the same case for the same job. My case temps are pretty low though, so I suspect they are working as intended.

Pros
- Nice airflow
- Sturdy build
- Quiet
Cons
- Poor rubber mounts
Summary
Got this cause I was sold on it's airflow demonstration video, pushes a good amount of air while remaining silent. The fan blades feel pretty sturdy unlike the usual flimsy stock fans. It comes with a connector that splits into 3 different voltages which is pretty useful. I just didn't like the rubber mounts, it was really hard to install, it broke so I had to improvise and it'll be even harder if you have fan filters.

Pros
-Quiet
-Pushes a decent amount of air
-High static pressure
-Comes with grommets & voltage selection
Cons
Maybe certain people would've liked seeing fan speed controllers over the voltage selection splitter.
Summary
Great product when used on dense radiators, heatsinks or as intake in a case. (:

Pros
Decent performance to noise ratio, accesories, uv blue
Cons
None so far
Summary
Bought 3 of these months ago for use on a triple rad, worked well so I grabbed another 4 for use in push-pull on an externally mounted dual rad. Haven't done any extensive testing but they seem to strike a good balance between good performance and tolerable noise levels.
