Rated 5 out of 5 by Garq Nice and quiet.
I bought this to replace a 3 year old Thermaltake 0.5A fan which came with a water cooler kit I installed in my tower case. It was still working fine, but a little too noisy for the living room, where I've been keeping the machine running most of the time. I was a bit worried that the Silencio might not have enough cooling power, with it spinning slower and using a fraction of the current of the old fan, but having installed it and monitored the cpu and case temperatures for a while, there is no noticeable difference. Apart from the noise of course, the Silencio is so much quieter. It was easy to fit, the cable length was longer than the Thermaltake's one so plugged in easily without stretching or needing adapters. Perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AnthonyK Good value and quiet fan
Good set of fans. quiet up to 1000 rpm, vibration is also minimum. air pressure is average despite the blade design, I think this is due to the gap between the blade and it housing. Humming motor noise will be audible above 1100 rpm. overall good set of value fans if you looking at quiet and good value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bobbybear Quiet except for boot up
I purchased two of these cooling fans to go with my PC upgrade.
They are hooked up to the four pin fan controllers on the Asus Maximus Ranger VII motherboard. One in the front blowing over the three HDD's and the SSD, the other is roof mounted exhausting hot air.
In general terms I can say they are pretty quiet in fact static when the case is cool and just ticking over, but when the PC wakes from sleep or boots up I guess they run at maximum speed for about 10 seconds and it sounds like a jet about to take off. Then they settle down to a very acceptable level.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Philip59 Bit unhappy
purchase to replace same make that had gone noisy, These are being run facing down from the top of the case, it would appear that they do not have bearing that like this position of the fan pulling down on the shaft. as there is mechanical noise from them appearing in the chassis. may well be ok the other way up or vertical. Have not played to find out,
