At just over 2 months of use inside my new gaming PC, this fan began to exhibit odd behavior by not spinning up to speed according to the fan profile settings originally set up using the ASUS fan monitoring software. I noticed that unlike all the other fans in the box, it began to actually stop spinning during portions of UEFI Bios and Windows 10 boot up process, which definitely was not the case when it was first installed. Upon running the fan through the fan profiling process again, the ASUS application actually reduced its useable range from the original 550 rpm > 1750 rpm to a much narrower 1100 rpm > 1700 rpm.
Since I had been running this fan near the 1100 RPM or higher range anyway, I decided to let things ride, and since the unit was well beyond the 30 day exchange period I wasn't crazy about the idea of having to purchase another fan so soon after purchasing this one. Which I should point out was on the high side for a non LED equipped exhaust fan of this size.
Well... About 2 weeks after the profile had been revised by my ASUS software, I began to hear the tell-tale metallic whine of a failing bearing coming from this fan's hub. It coincided with a visible slowing down of the fan's speed and would occur about every 3-5 seconds. It was at this point that I made the decision to purchase a second one of these. I assumed that the bearing problem was just my bad luck and the chances of a second unit having the same issue was remote. Since my PC case has a transparent side and all the internals are visible, I liked the look of this fan in the rear exhaust position and when lit with my custom LED case lighting it looked much better than a stock black case fan would look.
So... I ordered a second unit. The replacement unit tested better than the published spec according to the ASUS fan monitoring application, showing a solid 525 rpm > 1780 rpm range. (A better range than the first unit) However, within only a few short days, I began to see the early signs of yet another bearing failure! When the fan was profiled for a second time at day 5 of use, the lower end of the rpm range had gone from the out of the box 525 rpm to 700 rpm, and a very slight bearing grind could be heard coming from the fan's hub.
Not wanting to await the inevitable, I replaced the fan with the stock 140mm Corsair that had come pre-installed in my PC case, and returned this second Spectre Pro PWM 140 mm for a refund.
Its really too bad that such a nicely designed product is obviously using inferior bearings in the most important area of the product, resulting in premature bearing failure under normal use. I hope that BitFenix is aware of this quality control issue and will take steps to correct the problem by finding a quality source for the manufacture of this product in the future.
Personally, I don't have the time to go through a warranty claim over a $20.00 purchase and chose instead to forgo the impressive looks of this product for something that will actually do the job without breaking down in less than 3 months of normal use.
Plenty of length on the cable (4 pin PWM) so it could reach the middle of my ASROCK Z97 Anniversary board's 4pin header and is now running at a smooth 35% speed at idle and 45% under load when the temps hit over 50C.
Keeps the fan branding uniform throughout the front and back panels of my case (I have some Spectre Pro PWM LED's in the front) and is stealthed thanks to the black on black color scheme.
