Rated 4 out of 5 by TheEngineer Using two as push pull on radiator.
These fans do a good job at keep temps down. I don't use my PC to its full potential or for gaming. So for me they ar ideal. Good temps in a push pull configuration and very quiet when not under heavy load. I have options via the mobo software to turn them down as they ar PWM so even then, I can keep it quiet and still get good temps. All in all, really glad I choose them for my setup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobDiggler Excellent quality PMW fan, especially for closed-loop radiators.
I used two of these in a push/pull configuration for my Zalman closed-loop CPU radiator (replacing the original single Zalman radiator fan).
Air flow was less then the original Zalman fan (it could spin at 1800rpm), but a couple of these run at 1300rpm (PMW enabled) each and cool my overclocked i5 3570k CPU at 4.4GHz with ease. The processor core never goes over 75c even under 1-2 hours of CPU stress testing (Intel Burn Test).
Note to anyone using/considering a closed-loop water system (i.e. Corsair H80i) - Temperature/noise reductions will nearly always be better by using a pair of quality low-noise fans like these over a single fast-spinning 'push' fan.
I recommend these fans are their quality is top-notch and the box contains my cables and plugs that should cater for any situation.

Bought 5 of these for my NZXT Switch 810 alongside 2 other noctua's for the H100i 7 in total , the result ? near silent & great low temps the build quality of these fans is top class thus i would highly recommend this item. I also leave a little tip for switch 810 owners Dont use Fluid Dynamic Bearing fans on the hinged fan brackets inside , after a while they will start to get noisey as they dont like running at an angle , No such problems with the Noctua.

I have one of these on my Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler, one as a rear exhaust and one blowing in from top of the case. I also have 2x 140mm NF-A14 PWM as front intakes and with all of them running I can't hear a thing. My Motherboard is at 27C while my CPU is at 34C at idle.
The one on my CPU is only running at less than 20% @ 223rpm.
The one on top of my case blowing in running around 22% @ 281rpm.
The rear one is running at 50% @ 650rpm.
My two front intakes are running at around 50% @ 850rpm.
My system consists of the following:-
Corsair Carbide Series 300R case.
Asus Z87-PRO USB 3.0 Motherboard .
Intel Core i7 4770K Quad Core CPU 3.50GHz.

Rated 5 out of 5 by metalmiketh Absolutely fantastic
I'd almost forgotten I'd put them in they're that quiet. I haven't even used the Low Noise Adapters.
