Frequently Bought Together
Product Overview Long Service Life
The Fluid Dynamic Bearing comes with an oil capsule that avoids lubricant leakage. Thus this bearing is as quiet as a sleeve bearing but comes with a significantly higher service life
Features Perfect Case Fan Regulation with PWM
The PWM function allows the motherboard to run the fan precisely at its necessary speed. This guarantees the required cooling and minimizes the noise level.

Patented PWM Sharing Technology (PST) Lowers Noise
If you want to improve the cooling efficiency of your computer you get several case fans working in parallel (since it takes 10 fans to double the noise level). But what does it help if they don't work together? The PST assures that all of your fans listen to one control signal. E.g. you share the CPU Cooler's PWM signal and assure that your case fans stand down at low load and spin up whenever necessary.

Innovative Design Enables Quiet and Efficient Ventilation
The innovative design of the fan blades improves the air flow and facilitates a highly efficient ventilation. The impeller was designed with a focus on minimzing the noise level yet delivering the desired airflow and pressure.

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

Anybody who has been near their share of computer systems will appreciate that not all systems make the same amount of noise. There are a number of reasons for why this is so. Firstly, a computer makes noise for different reasons. Generally, anything mechanical is going to make noise.

120mm Arctic F12 Temperature Controlled PWM Case Fan is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and reliable Quiet, reliable and great value for money. I have twelve of the various Arctic F12 series fans in a few machines that are on 24/7. All run very quiet and have been 100% reliable. As other people mention, the only real let down is the power cable. This is extremely fine ribbon cable. so some care is required when handling. It's not braid covered and is also multi coloured, so may not be to everyone's taste. They're one third of the price of an NF-F12, so definitely no complaints from me !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cheap fans Better than fans i have spent 6x the money on. Run silent. Value for money at it's finest, the fans look pretty nice too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANtastic Looking for a replacement fan, went strait to the Cooler Master Hyper 103. Have this already in another machine and find it runs both cool and quiet, no additional settings required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great but quiet Good FAN. Scored nicely in a recent 120mm FAN comparison.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Well, it's cheap This was the least expensive PWM fan I could find. I got it in to see what it was like. It works but the design is clumsy. The PWM conection split over two connectors and a further adapter. Which leaves the wiring looking ugly as sin. If you are desperate for something cheap which works, it's fine. That's about it though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fans at a low price These fans have so far worked brilliantly for me. They have a low price, have PWM capability, the splitter cable helps out greatly on boards with less fan sockets (would recommend 3 fans at most per socket, these fans operate at 0.25A and most boards handle 1A max). As far as the cooling they seem to be great and quiet too, the air leaving the top of my case is always cool (that being the Carbide 300R with 2 stock case fans and 2 of these, 1 top 1 front) unless under very heavy load (large planetside 2 battles, BF4, planning on trying crysis). These things are so powerful you can float paper/card over them easily, its nice to be able to simply put my hand over the top of the case and know for certain what the air inside is like. Definitely recommend them, unless youre going heavy on overclocking these things will certainly keep your pc running cool.

Please clarify the PWM of this fan

I'm a little confused. The title sounds like a standard PWM fan, however the Specifications have a big red cross next to PWM and the overview talks about PWM sharing technology to share the CPU fan signal. Please can you clarify how this fan connects / works? Thanks!
Asked by: Tobestool
Hello, This is a PWM fan and will connect via a 4pin PWM connection. Regards,
