Set all 3 fans speed at LOW, very quiet and air flow is good.
New Mom
I love the ability to manually control the fan speed with the 3-speed switch.

Its also nice not having really bright blue LED's like my old fans used to.

It's hard not to love this product. We needed a hobby fan that we were going to use to exhaust air out the back of a cabinet that we sometimes heat food up in, to avoid the moisture that fogs your glasses when you are stirring the food. I wasn't sure how I was going to figure out which pins did what, but they are very clearly identifiable based on what they give you and how it is wired.

Out of the fan case itself, pops two cables. One cable has a switch that has H M L on it, for high, medium and low. This is the speed control.

The other cable has a three pin female connector, into which a 3 wire male plug containing three wires arrive already plugged in. A red and black wire for power, and a white wire for control. The red and black wires are already built into a 4 prong Molex connector (two fo the prongs are unconnected) that has both male and female on different sides, so that you can plug the male side of the Molex into a power supply connector, and then plug another device into the female side of the Molex. The white wire is terminated by another three wire connector, with two of the positions left unconnected.

If you have a motherboard that has the three wire connector, that provides both control and power, you can pull the male plug that has the three colored wires out of the end of the cable coupled to the fan (lift the tab on the side and then slide the plug out) and pop the plug at the end of the clear wires onto your motherboard and let the motherboard do the speed control for you. Try this arrangement first: if the fan spins when you turn it on, you're fine.

We have a Dell Dimension 8100 (desktop machine), which is notorious for its CPU fan. For whatever reason, Dell used a proprietary 3-pin motherboard connector for the fan. When the fan starts going out, it gets really loud, but the part is out of stock. Disconnecting the stock fan from the motherboard means that on every boot, you get a beep and have to hit "F1" to bypass the missing fan.

Antec to the rescue.

This fan (TriCool 92mm) ships with a 3-pin connector and a Y-adapter. The Y-Adapter allows you to get power from a large power-supply socket, like the kind a hard drive uses. The other branch of the adapter goes to a 3-pin connector with a white fan sense pin.

To use this fan to replace the Dell Dimension 8100 fan:

* Disconnect the existing CPU fan from the motherboard, noting which pin is connected to the white wire. This is the fan sense pin.

* Using pliers, carefully remove the plastic sheath on the motherboard fan pins.

* Using the Y-adapter, connect the Antec to a power supply socket.

* Using other branch of the cable, with the white wire to a 3-pin plug, connect ONLY the wired pin to the fan sense pin on the motherboard.

The Dell will then detect the new fan and bypass the warning message.

As a bonus, this fan moves more air on its high setting than the stock fan did.

My original case fan was incredibly loud. It doesn't pay to go too cheap on the case fans. I'm not a 'modder' and don't spend time making the computer case look pretty, but I wanted a fan that would run quiet and help contribute to the overall process of keeping the case cool. This fan seems to do both just fine for my needs. The blue light it emits is a nice gimmick too. The fan shipped to me quickly and without any troubles. I would recommend this fan.

Style Name: DBBSize Name: 120mm Verified Purchase
My box was overheating and crashing to the desktop during certain games and I traced the problem to heat. This fan was highly rated by several reputable online sites so I decided to try it out.

I thought I would enjoy the 3-spd switch and just up the speed when playing games and leave it low for day to day computer use. Unfortunately, I had no easy way of mounting the switch so I could access it from the outside of the case. It didn't matter too much though, since even on its highest speed setting (which I leave it on) you can barely hear it.

The results were immediate and impressive, with double digit (10-14 degress C) drops for case/cpu/video card temps at full load. The switch did nothing for me, but the fan is highly recommended.

I purchased this to add to an Antec Sonata III case. At medium speed it's still very quiet yet moves a decent amount of air. The molex connector is removable so if your motherboard will power the fan you can take it off and not have excess cables hanging.

While the two fans I ordered for a new computer build are functioning properly, they are not as advertised on Amazon's website. According to the specs on the site, they have a double ball-bearing design which last longer than normal fans. Be warned, these are NOT the Antec double ball-bearing fans, but the less expensive ones. Have contacted Amazon and hope they update the specs to reflect these accurately.

Does exactly what is says it does...quietly, dependably, and affordably. Easy install. If adventurous you can even use it as an extra side fan with a drill for some small holes in the side of your case. Even this was easy. Keeps the system cool with very little fuss. I like the three speed switch which lets you decide how much air to push, not some automatic thermostat using a temperature gauge on a computer panel. You know when it's HOT! Overall a very good buy and a great product.
