BitFenix Spectre 140mm Case Fan (Black)
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The fan is very quiet and has the added benefit of fitting in an Obsidian 650D case with both HDD cages present.
The fan is fairly quiet, but not very smooth - vibration can be felt through the frame, the motor rumbles a little, and makes occasional scratching and clicking noises, which can become more annoying when run at less than nominal 12V. The hub is large and the bearings feel cheap - the hub can slide some 3mm up and down, if not more. All of that is quite typical and to be expected in this price range.
Lastly, it does not move a whole lot of air for its size, a likely compromise to keep the RPM down for quieter operation. Compared against the Noctua NF-A20 and Antec Big Boy, the BitFenix actually has better airflow than the Noctua (and subjectively is about as quiet, but not nearly as smooth), and handily outperformed by the Big Boy (on high setting), though that comes at expense of a much higher noise.
I am not docking any points for the mounting holes, since there isn't an industry standard anyway, and I usually make my own mounts regardless.
All in all, not a bad buy at $12, especially if you need a bunch of them. Just remember that it's really a 200mm fan - both for expectations and spec comparison.
I am using a standard AC/DC adapter running at 12 volts on these 200mm BitFenix fans.
I had previously been using a pair of 120mm case fans that were positioned to pull out the heat generated by the Onkyo.
These did a reasonable job but I wanted to try something in addition.
I did the same thing with these 200mm fans, run them with a AC/DC adapter running 12 volts. These are designed to push air so they are blowing down onto the heat sinks in the rear of the receiver. I simply moved the 2 smaller 120mm fans to the front of the case.
This method of one set blowing in and the other sucking out the hot air works great.
The sound of the BitFenix is very minimal. I pretty much have to get right up on them to even hear them spinning.
All in all very pleased for my purposes.
