Rated 5 out of 5 by psroberts Quiet for its size
Audible at high speeds but no high-pitched wine. Great quality. If you need a 40mm fan this is the one to go for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SingularSyzygy quiet and cheap
I use these fans in my 24 port switch. These fans made my switch a lot quieter than the stock fans.
I barely hear my switch with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NorBdelta Exceptional fan for premium builds
Well, when it comes to case fans Noctua I believe are the undisputed top manufacturer. You pay for it certainly, but their fans are the pinnacle of quality. They have a high throughput of air volume, long life expectancy and are known for their silent operation.
As usual this fan is extremely silent, even before using their speed reduction cables which all their fans come with. Near silent with the speed reduction cables.
Comes with anti vibration mounting pins, speed reduction cables and obligatory installation manual. I quite like the brown colour scheme but I do sympathize that other who like colour schemes to better match their rigs.
If you are on a tight budget I would suggest spending the premium markup for these elsewhere, but they are a near lifetime addition to your future rigs. However, it is a matter of choice to get the best with accessories to match and pay for it, or get slightly less out of a cheaper fan brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sorin Premium quality quiet fan !
The quality we all expect from a Noctua fan.
Excellent fan, quiet and moves air well.
Also comes with a cable extender and a 3 to 2 pin adapter (small form). Ideal to replace the fan in some STBs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dtcotw Incredibly quiet 40mm fan
This is a must for anyone using an Asus Sabretooth motherboard. The 35mm fan that came with mine was so whiney even in silent mode, I took the punt on this one. It's a tight fit on the 40mm fan bracket but is almost inaudible at full speed.
