“Noise,”

Pros: Color, air flow, controller

Cons: Noise,

So I bought a couple of these for the new computers as we needed some side 120 fans and these seem to fit the bit. At first I had not used the fan controller and was going to let the motherboard control the airflow, this was a mistake.

Before getting to that, it should be pointed out that this is a good fan and worth the investment. It does move air quite nicely, the blue LEDs are really nice, if not a touch bright, and the sleeved power cable is a really nice bonus. Be mindful of that sleeved power cable though, it is not exactly real long, it is maybe 10-12 inches, so if you mount this on a side panel(like I did) you will need an extender or to use the fan controller.

On the topic of the fan controller, I would encourage you to use it for a few reasons; It does give you more length on the cable, it allows you to adjust the noise(as that is what you are doing) and makes you feel cool for being able to control more components of your computer. smile.gif

I knocked half a star for the noise levels alone. I knew the airflow and had seen comparable fans with similar airflow produce less noise. The fan controller does keep it in check but you can definitely hear it when it is running maxed out.
