- INNOVATIVE DESIGN ENABKES QUIET AND EFFICIENT VENTILATION: The innovative design of the fan blades improves the air flow and facilitates a highly efficient ventilation. The impeller was designed with a focus on minimzing the noise level yet delivering the desired airflow and pressure.
- PERFECT CASE FAN REGULATION WITH PWM: The PWM function allows the motherboard to run the fan precisely at its necessary speed. This guarantees the required cooling and minimizes the noise level.
- TWO WAY INSTALLATION: Blow warm air out of the case. Draw cool air into your case.
- LONG SERVICE LIFE: The Fluid Dynamic Bearing comes with an oil capsule that avoids lubricant leakage. Thus this bearing is as quiet as a sleeve bearing but comes with a significantly higher service life.
- 4-Pin PWM fan with standard case.

+PWM - always a good thing to have whether you're running them full speed or not.
+Easy to mount
+Clean and simple design
-Would have liked to see the cables with black coloring or a sleeve on them.
-The sticker should be on the back of the fan, not on the blades, it is rarely on straight and creates a wobbly effect.
-The screws are fine being silver, however black would have been preferred and they're not magnetic which is a pain.
Other thoughts towards these fans - I'd have liked to have seen sleeving on the cables, or had them be black to begin with. Makes things a lot easier to hide in areas where cable management isn't the greatest. Some easy mounting rubber pins would be a nice addition for a buck or two more to add some sound dampening against vibration. It also struck me as odd that the sticker wasn't on the back of the fan and it's just barren. The stickers are just slightly off and create an illusion of vibration because of that. I'll be removing them soon to clean up the design a bit more.
I've never been a fan of Noctua because of their colors and not wanting to pry blades off and have to paint them.. I've ran Nocs, I've ran these. Audibly, I can tell very little difference between the two. Temps compared to the stock fans were only minimal, -5c degrees on average during idle, however it was just the silence I was looking for; these performed better than expected and quietly. The cables aren't sleeved on these Arctics - which is okay considering the price. The wires are very tiny so sleeving is a breeze if you need the aesthetic. Otherwise the bare wires are pale blue, yellow and green.
Don't be discouraged by the prices of these fans. They're quality! They just don't come with a flashy box and 12 different ways to connect/install it.
Update: I've been running these for 5 months now and they're still as quiet as the day I installed them; if you're weary of these being anything cheap and breaking within 2-3 months. The computer they're in runs 24/7 as it's also a media server, cheap would have started making some noise by now - but not a peep from these.
I got this particular fan because of the brand, bearing technology and rated CFM. It's my completely un-scientific opinion that it moves the air it claims. It was installed in my FreeNAS machine to move air across two hot running enterprise class Seagate spinning drives that are configured in a mirror'ed set. If you're looking for a well made powerful fan and are a little less concerned about fan noise I think this is a good one to go for.
If I had one complaint, it'd be that it gets fairly loud towards it's max RPM of 1350 RPM, but that shouldn't really be noticeable while gaming. Other than that, highly recommended.
