Pros: Silent, high static pressure.

Cons: Relatively expensive.

I am using this fan with my Corsair H50 in push/pull configuration. The use of this fan with heat radiators or dust filters is highly recommended as the static air pressure is really good.

At default speeds this fan (1850rpm) does indeed make some noise, but once you use some sort of voltage control on this baby, the noise/performance ratio is awesome.

This fan requires over the average voltage for startup, as the fan + motor is relatively heavy. But once it's at full speed, the fan requires little voltage. The Scythe GT will do fine directly connected to motherboards.

The only con with my setup is radiator noise, resulting from my push pull setup blowing air out of my cabinet. The air being blowed through the radiator (might be caused from the exhaust grill on the cabinet) creates a whining noise. I've read elsewhere that using a fan "collar" (imagine a fan cut out from the plastic cylinder) might help, but i am yet to try this out. Anyhow this is not very related to the fan.

Fan approved. These are now my new radiator and intake case fans.
