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
Quiet
Good airflow
Cons
Orange accent colours
Rubber around screw holes can compress easily
Summary
I got 6 of these to replace my push-pull fans on my 420 water cooled radiator. They replaced some old Cooler Master fans. I have been surprised how quiet they are and how much airflow they push through the rad. At low load, water temps stay at below 33 degrees easily.

The only minor con is that the orange rubber coating around the screw holes can compress easily and get misshapen causing it to lose its quietening ability.

Aside from the minor quibble, I cannot fault this fan at all.

Pros
+Quiet
+Push a lot of air
+Anti vibration pads
+Black
Cons
-Loud after a few months of use
-US for RMA, no cross shipping
Summary
Not recommended for horizontal mounting, they die much faster that way. I bought 3 of these fans, they are all making the same ticking sounds after 4-5 months of use, sounded like old hard disk but much much louder.

It works, but expect them to sound like many old hard disk after a few months of use.

Would not purchase again!

Pros
Pushes a lot of air
Solid build
Cons
Ugly orange corners
Not nearly as quiet as claimed
Summary
So while I didn't expect this to be as quiet as claimed (over 110cfm only 19db?! Yeah right) It runs louder than my AP-15's at full blast. Which should not even be close to the case as they are rated for a much higher db. However the fan I bought did exactly as I wanted it to in which it could push as much air as my old 140mm fractal fan and remain as silent while under use of a fan controller. I only wanted it to speed up when it needs to. So with that said I am not disappointed about how loud it gets as it's only there if needed and remains silent otherwise.

Pros
High CFM
Quiet
Anti-Vibration screw holes
Cons
Price
Sleeving
Summary
At first, I did not think much about these fans. Who can possibly 120CFM with around 20DBa.

Truth be told, those numbers are probably a bit far fetched. However, I can happily report that these fans aren't very disappointing. They are pretty quiet for the amount of air they push. I can compare them to the fractal design 140mm fans. They are around the same in terms of noise level yet these fans push a ton more air.

If you are seeking an alternative to the Gentle Typhoons, these are definitely worth considering.

Pros
Very Silent
Really efficient
Great Bundle
Sleeve cable (substantially the same type as the noctua)
Cons
Anti-vibration pads not black
Anti-vibration screw a little too long
Summary
I bought 3x120mm + 2x140mm for my Corsair 300R and it's really quiet to the point that sometimes I wonder if the computer is running.

The only cons have is a anti-vibration screw was a little too long (can be very difficult to implement) and the anti-vibration pads are orange (I see very well over the grid box).

Having tried the noctua NF-P12, enermax appolish, Gelid silent, arctic cooling F12, scythe ultra kaze and slipstream and still another, the Cougar HDB come easily take the lead, especially with the pricematch I've had to $ 13 each
