New Bitfenix Spectre 140mm Fans

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I ordered the all white version of the 140mm Bitfenix Spectre fan.
Will that happen to mine as well or is it just with the LED versions?:

There is no way to know until your get them, but from the few reviews I've read the odds of yours sounding like that are HIGH! If you can't cancel your order, just send them back.

Well, they are cool in this respect: sickle-bladed 140mm fans. Too bad about the clicking.

I am hoping so bad my all white Non LED ones won´t be affected by the vibration noise and that it is only the LED versions!

But even if so ....they only make that sound when facing upwards.
If installed to the side they will not sound like that so who cares really?
Bitfenix couldn´t sell fans with "ultra silent" designation if they made such a noise lol?
So it doesn´t matter really...if you have them installed sideways like any normal fan they won´t make that sound.

just got mine too.

I tested it and the ONLY click if you have them uninstalled and losely lying around.
Try to push them down to the floor ..then you won´t here any clicking.
And since they will be fastened to your case therfore pressed down you won´t here any clicking.

I have a 140mm and 3x120mm BitFenix Spectre's in my case and none of them make that noise.

They are all silent.

I bought the 140mm and the 120mm before the new year. And i got another 120mm a few weeks ago.

The new 120mm one has a different frame design from the other Spectre's, it's much higher quality and the plastic seems better.

One problem though i had with my older Spectre's is that the LED's weren't the same shade of green. Some would be light green, others would be dark green.

So i ripped out the LED's and put in my own wink.gif

Also the wires in the newer Spectre are black and it has a black 3-pin connector, as opposed to a white connector with multi-colored wires on the older Spectre's.

The ones in the vids are older versions of the Spectre's

EDIT: Oh, i also have a 230mm BitFenix Spectre in the front of my HAF-X with sickle blades and it looks deadly! biggrin.gif
