Rated 5 out of 5 by AndyF 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 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.

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 Bonebreaker777 Great but quiet
Good FAN. Scored nicely in a recent Hardware.info 120mm FAN comparison.

Rated 2 out of 5 by matt1321 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 Jag272 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.
