I have a green one in my brothers PC for intake and it works pretty good. It's been in use almost everyday for the last 2-2.5 years. It's still quiet and it moves a lot of air in too. Also all the LED's still work too.

The Noctua NF-P12-1300 are the ugliest fans I have ever seen but they are some of the best and most quiet fans I have ever used.

thanks for that.i will probably buy it,as others that fit in my budget move a lot less air.
