Rated 5 out of 5 by mp5mafia Looks!
Awesome looks and pretty quiet. Perfect for low density rads or case fan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CONNORRRR Good-ish
Bought 4 of these for a complete fan overhaul.
I'm running them straight from the PSU which means they're at their full 1300rpm and I can say that they're absolutely not silent. They're well made, have very nicely braided cables and shift a lot of air. But I've owned much quieter fans in the past.
If you plan to run these from the PSU I suggest you buy some voltage resistor cables to bottleneck the power going to them as I have done.

Fitted this as a replacement to my ageing CPU cooler fan, I did not realize how loud the bearings had become on that unit until I fitted this one. Turning the other ones on and off within the case this one was clearly quieter than the rest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snax Cool and quiet!
Wanted at long last to reduce noise from Corsair 600T.
Ditched Corsair fan controller and used Asus Fan Expert ll, replaced the dual fans on the Corsair A70 with the Apache Black....what a difference..same cool temp, overall lower fan speeds and the Apache fans live well up to their name. Together with cable tidy done...great job accomplished!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lofty Quiet but useful
These fans are virtually silent at lower speeds and shift a good volume of air when run flat out.
I have used them in a few PC builds and have been very pleased with them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Snapshot Excellent fan but may have compatibility problems with newer mobos
These have been my favourite 120mm fans since they were released. They shift a reasonable amount of air and are virtually silent until they're going flat out. However, I'm having problems with them on mobos with H87 and Z97 chipsets as the fans won't start in silent mode until the system temperature is higher than I like. I don't know if it's a problem with the chipset or just Gigabyte's implementation but I've had to use the faster Viper fan instead. I'd still recommend this fan but just be aware of where you'll use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Goobley One of the cheapest all-round decent PWM fans
I always use these for case fans (unless I want LEDs), they have full PWM control (from about 400RPM), shift plenty of air when turned up and are very quiet at low speed. All in all, just what you need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DamienC Very Quiet
I bought 8 of these run on my radiators and they are extremely quiet running at 12v.
The performance of them on the radiators matches that of the 1900rpm Scythe Kazi Jyuni fans I was running.
Easily will recommend them to people, just make sure you have some 4 pin 12v adaptors as these don't come with any of that.
