Cannon Fodder
Experience: 2 Weeks


Reasonably priced, when price matched, fairly quiet, and move a decent amount of air.
I recently got 4 of these for my bro-in-law's re-build, and so far have been pleasantly surprised. Yeah, 80mm fans are pretty much "old school", but we were re-using his old Antec case, and there's no mounting for fans larger than this.

The Good:
- Decent price, especially when price matched.
- Surprisingly, these are actually not as noisy as I expected(probably due to the dual ball bearing), even when they ramp up, i.e. when the temps. get higher, and the fans go faster, you can definitely tell they're there, but the noise isn't that bad.
- They also move a reasonable amount of air, and seem to keep the temps under control.

The Bad:
- Well, the obvious, i.e. they're 80mm, and anything larger(120mm, 140mm, or bigger) has the expected potential to move as much, or more air, all while being quieter when doing so.

Experience: 1 Years


-lasts quite a long time due to the better bearing
-quiet for the most part
doesnt push much air
good fan overall for older pc cases

Experience: 1 Days


included speed control
cheap 80mm fan that blows air with decent pressure and has an included fan speed control with 3 speed settings

Experience: 2 Weeks


Quiet on low to mid setting
3-position speed switch
4-pin Molex (with fan header speed sensing) or 3-pin fan header
No rubber mounts
It's a midrange fan, not designed for truly quiet operation at full speed but it is fairly quiet at low to mid speed.

The connector is interesting - it's a 3-pin fan header connector but there's an adapter to change it to a 4-pin Molex with a fan speed sense lead back to a separate 3-pin header. So you could power it by 4-pin Molex and still get the fan speed. Though if you had a free fan header I'm not sure why you wouldn't just use that, but it's still interesting.

You don't get the rubber grommets usually included with premium silent fans. You can get these separately though.

It's a decent, well-made fan that is quiet enough at low to mid speeds.

Experience: 90 Days


cool clear frame and good performance
great price on sale
works well to replace dead case fan. 3 speed switch gets the speed and noise you want or don't

Experience: 5 Days


looks nice moves air
Used this fan to replace broken rear exhaust fan in my case. Works great overall, pushes lots of air out and looks nice.

Experience: 30 Days


prix, facilité installation
bon ventilateur fonctionne bien

Experience: 2 Months


Ball bearing, fan speed control.
I love Antec fans for their 3 speed controller which lets you run in quiet or performance modes. This fan provides decent cooling and is generally pretty quiet. Bought the ball bearing version so that I wouldn't have to worry about the fan seizing up suddenly and roasting my hardware.

Experience: 1 Days


moves good air
3 speed control
none so far
i got 2 of these for my case.

works perfectly

fits perfectly

i especially like the 4 pin molex..

nothing more to say!

Experience: 2 Months


Variable Speed
switch cable too short
seems to be slower than rated RPM
Good quiet fan, but I think it lacks performance. It seems to be slower/inefficient than other fans rated at the same RPM. I would not buy again unless it goes on sale and I need small fans.
