HIGH-VORTEX-AIRFLOW WITH TURBINE BLADE & FRAME PATENTED DESIGN

Optimum airflow, air pressure & extremely silent performance

DIVERSION GROOVE BLADE DESIGN

ANTI-VIBRATION PAD DESIGN

AERO-DYNAMICAL DESIGN

Air-inlet with optimal aero-dynamical design reducing noisy air turbulences

HYDRO-DYNAMIC-BEARING TECHNOLOGY

We defined HDB to Hydro Dynamic Bearing. An oil seal design that has a higher reliability and advantage than conventional fan motor design.
1. High revolution precision, low vibration noise
2. Fluid seal design provide extremely long life span
3. Surface tension effect, runs more smoothly with no friction, extremely quiet
Fluid seal design is achieved through the use of oil surface tension and hydrodynamic pumping forces provided by grooves. Bend area is centralized oil and prevented oil leakage out of motor (oil leakage is main problem of sleeve bearing, short life time) . Friction between shaft and HDB will be down due to herringbone structure reaction(friction between the metal is disadvantage of ball bearing, noise & waste heat problem). So HDB conquer sleeve & ball bearing disadvantage to become more reliable & quiet technology for Top-notch fan. Such design concept is successful and applicative on HDD, and we can see a reliability application in it.

Pros
Whisper quiet when running as PWM based fans.
Cons
Not quite square at the edges which leaves little gaps on my Water cooling radiator.
Summary
I'm running two of these in push/pull setup through a corsair water cooled setup. So at quite at low RPM I would not know they were running. When I put full load through my OCed machine they are still really quiet but ensure my water cooled setup only reaches 60c. I'm sure there are some fans that will push high volume of air through, but these were perfect with near silent operation.

Pros
Quiet
Focused Air
Rubber mount pads
rubber mounts
Sleeved cable
Cons
The orange fans are cheaper but I don't want them
Summary
Have mine attached to my CPU heatsink in a horizontal configuration for almost a year now. At idle speeds it's absolutely silent. I have to place my ear a few inches from the fan in order to hear the air move. I have purchased 2 more cougar fans and the loudest components in my case are now my HDD and graphics card fan.

Summary
I was looking for quiet (a must) and good performance at reasonable price for my water-cool overclocked i7. This fan does the job nicely. I would purchase more Cougar fans in future. Thumb up!

Pros
'near-silence', not more than a whisper
Excellent temperatures
Great price
Nice accessories
Cons
Not completely square design is bad for radiators
Summary
Pros: I've had theses fans (2) for over a week now, and they are absolutely perfect.
I bought two as a replacement for my stock H100i, as for the fans were obnoxiously loud.
They were easy too install, looks nice and pretty, pushes almost as much air as the super fast stock fans, even though they are running at almost 1/2 the RPM. Due to it pushing almost as much air, the temperatures on my CPU rose about 1 or 2 degrees, which is not bad at all.

Cons: The only downside to these fans is, merely a gripe at them not being completely square. The angular design looks nice and edgy, but due to the holes around the frame, some air escapes and is a loss for a marginal amount of performance.

In summary: These fans kick major butt, and they are a must for any stock fan upgrade for those who are more minded towards silence, and are not willing to give up too readily for performance!

Pros
Sleeved Cables
Mounting Hardware included
Strong Construction
Very quiet
Cons
None
Summary
Picked up a couple of these for my 240mm rad. The focused air flow certainly has an impact on performance. Will likely grab another 2 down the road. I've no experience with Noctua fans, but these at almost $10.00 less offer great performance on a budget.
