Rated 4 out of 5 by 2
Rated 3 out of 5 by Rob353 A little disappointed.
I have never really spend this much money on fans etc before, usually going down the route of "using what I have lying about"
But I took the plunge and ordered these based on reviews and the blurb that comes with these special fans.
First of all, maximum marks on build quality and the packaging. It does look very fancy.
However, at 12v I wouldn't call these "quiet" as such. Of course, quieter than my Corsair ones but they were free.... I honestly wouldn't want two of these spinning at 12v all the time.
I have set them both to 7v but at that speed it doesn't shift much air... they are SUPER silent at this speed though. Ultimately my PC did struggle to keep cool on the 7v setting so I might have to trade off sound for temperature which is ultimately what I wanted to avoid.
Another thing to note is these are slightly larger than your usual 120mm fan and thus wouldn't fit into the 120mm rear exhaust on my Thermaltake H15 case. I had to change the orientation of my CPU heatsink and move the fan to the top of the case to make it all work as it should.
If I had my time around again, I'd purchase a couple of cheaper fans and couple them to a 7v feed because I feel ANY fan spinning at 7v would be quiet. I don't need a £15 fan to do that task as such.
It's a shame because I could have gone for the cheaper "pure wings 2" and hooked these up to a 7v feed and saved myself £10.. I doubt there would be much difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jackparkyy Silent, Excellent build quality and great performance
These fans can run at very low RPM's for complete silence (the electrical noise coming off my TV on mute is louder). When running at full speed, they are still quiet, achieve excellent air flow and static pressure, making them great for use with radiators or just as air flow fans. As for the build quality and packaging well... they're German, need I say more?
