Nice design
Doesn't move much air.
Seems to work good. It is quiet but doesn't move a large amount of air.

Experience: 90 Days


good quality and performance
pricematch if you can
good performing small size fan.quiet and nice look with white blades and sleeved black cable

Experience: 2 Years


great improvement in temps
not very loud
nice looks
the cable is way too long for the sabertooth p67
This is a great fan. It does need to run on 12V for it to start up, but it is very quiet. When you have it on a sabertooth p67 inside the case, i can barely hear it over the other case fans.

The only down side is that it comes with a normally long cord. The sabertooth has the power connector right beside the fan, so without any modding there is a large bunched up cable beside the fan. This is more of the sabertooth's problem rather than the fan.

I have had it for nearly 3 years now, and it has developed a slight grinding/clicking inside the hub. If you push it the right way it stops, but it can get annoying. I plan on buying a second one, because this is a great fan. Looks, sound, and performance.
Other points: the white looks great with my colour scheme.

Cheap, compatible
Wear out, no other choices on NCIX
I bought 2 of these for my P67 Sabertooth, like other reviewers, but I had no problem using the ASUS screws with them. DO NOT use the screws included with the fan, you need to use the screws included with the motherboard.

The problem is the fan gets noisy after a couple months and I have to replace my second one soon. *Big frown*

I am wishing for a higher quality product to be available from NCIX.

Experience: 30 Days


quiet and 50mm
white blades
I needed a few of this for a Silverstone LC-19 case and these are perfect except the white colour fan blades. I would have preferred black so they didn't show through the fan grills but not a huge deal. Most 50mmm fans are 5000 RPM and whine like a cat in heat but these are not too bad. It's worth noting that 1 out of the 5 I purchased has a speed wobble and is unusable.

Experience: 1 Days


its'a cutie.
smaller fans are noisier fans.
Got this as a support fan for my Sabertooth p67. I expected their to be a problem with the screw fittings... BUT no such thing; being as my Sabertooth came with longer screws for this very purpose! so glad :P now everything matches :D

Experience: 1 Days


quiet, small, cheap.
not so much air flow
screws too short
and most importantly, fans don't spin (tried 2 units), yep.
I got the first one which doesn't spin unless i give the fan a little push by my fingers, but once u close the case, nobody is giving it a push, so i figured it's a defect.

NCIX is nice to give me an exchange, love them!

But when I got home to try the 2nd one, still the same: the fans don't spin unless i push it a little bit, like a spoiled child. So it must be the product itself, or perhaps the mobo is not giving enough voltage? The system fan did work on the same 3-pin power plug.

Also, as the other guys noted, just what is screws? They're too short, they can't even stick out to be inserted into anything.

Experience: 1 Days


Sleeved cable
The screws that are provided with the fan itself don't fit in the holes pre drilled.
I can not believe what happened when I pulled the fan out of the box...the screws provided with the product don't even fit...I'm going to have to redrill the hole just to use the product...fail fractal...fail. Will never buy another fractal product as this is my first time doing so and never had anything near as ridiculous as this be an issue before. Might update  if I do decide to drill the fan...

Experience: 2 Weeks


odd size of screw
Bought a couple of these to replace the white noise generator that came with my external drive enclosure. Fairly quiet operation, not silent but barely noticeable. They push a decent amount of air for a fan this size so it seems like a good balance between noise and power. The only oddity is regarding the supplied screws, the heads of which are quite small and which barely have enough meat to secure the fan to my enclosure. Works well enough for my application.

Experience: 2 Days


I suppose as a fan they probably work
They look nice
Screw holes are too small to use with the provided screws on a P67 Sabertooth motherboard
Stock issues resulted in a nearly four month delay
Manufacturer did not respond to questions about their product
So I purchased a few of these (3 in case of defects or failures) specifically to use on a P67 Sabertooth board (in the optional 50mm cooling fan slot). The original order went in early in May of 2011 and as mentioned previously stock issues resulted in these not being shipped until mid-late August 2011. In the interim I'd picked up a few other 50mm fans to use which all functioned flawlessly and which I had zero compatibility issues with (none of which are carried by NCIX unfortunately). So I finally get the Fractal Design fans and when I go to install them, guess what, the screw holes on the fan are too small for the screws provided by ASUS for the 50mm fan slot. So yeah complete and total waste of money unless I feel like re-drilling the holes for the screws (which I don't) or going out to find some other screws so they'll fit (again not happening).
Also after sending three separate e-mails to the manufacturer to ask a simple spec question (what type of bearing does the fan use) they have yet to respond to a single one and it's been a few months since they were sent.
To any P67 Sabertooth owners, do not buy this fan.
