This shroud improves the cooing performance of your fan/radiator combination. Mounted between fan and radiator this shroud allows more even distribution of Airflow which allows a more efficient utilization of the radiator's fin surface. If mounted directly onto radiator a deadspot between the fan motor is developed which reduces the performance. Even multiple of the shrouds can be stacked with longer screws to further increase efficiency and performance. The used material ensures a better seal between fan and radiator which also helps to direct all of the Airflow through the cooling fins.
The material, hard rubber with a thickness of7mm, decouples the fan from the radiator. This mounting method is a must especially with fast fans as the emitted vibrations might otherwise cause the whole case to vibrate noisily.
Can be used in multiples over double, and larger rads!

Useful Radiator Shroud, but floppy11-28-2013

I would give these shrouds a better review if they had more structure and didn''t warp with non square fans. The edges of your fan need to be square or gaps form. A perfect shroud for me would be one with metal or plastic in the middle and rubber outside for sound (I don''t think it exists).

Mounting a Koolance rad mounting bracket bkt hxo01p created a problem to keep my HAF X rear 140mm fan. These gaskets provided an easy fix by adding three of these between inside of case wall and fan. The 21mm of clearance provided necessary stand off between the Koolance bracket thumbnuts and the 140mm rear fan. They also provide a nice seal and the fan ( 140mm Blue Shark ) is very quiet.

Great on 800d and anywhere else that a bit of taper will help to hold shape, but works well anywhere else as well. These gaskets are easy to work with, even when sides are removed. They hold shape well unless overly tightened with unbalanced force, and at most require a slight tacking to keep in place while secured. Wonderful product for the same price or less then 1-4mm fan silencers, which are much trickier at times to keep in place.

I ordered 10 of these for 2 radiators. They are supposed to increase the stand off of your fans from the radiator and therefore inceasing the density of air being pushed/pulled thru the rad, while helping silence the fans by absorbing fan vibration. They do that, however; when installed on a 120mm fan they intrude by roughly 5mm an all sides, somewhat reducing air flow. So you are actually receiving air flow thru 110mm and not making full use of your 120mm fan. Also you need to know that you cannot over tighten the screws. Even slight over tightening (although you may not be touching the fins) makes the rubber buckle and bend/warp a bit which will further decrease your air flow if not disrupt it a bit. This can be avoided by carefully watching for it to buckle, and the backing off until its straight again.
GREAT Sealer/Spacer for Corsair 800D05-04-2011

The 120x3 fan mounting area on top of the Corsair 800D case is beveled and prevents fans from being mounted flush externally. However, these Phobya Shroud/Gaskets have beveled edges on two opposing sides (as other poster mentioned) that allow it to sit "flush" very nicely atop the 800D!!! This allows an external fan to be properly mounted!!! The rubber is firm, but gives enough to form a perfect seal whilst providing a mini-plenum effect to help things out! HIGHLY recommended for this purpose or any other purpose where a nice 5/16" (7mm) clearance with a perfect seal is required. Absolutely a perfect solution for the 800D!!
