These fans are superb...
I have never purchased an Akasa fan before and lately fan noise has been getting on my nerves. I was previously using a bunch of Scythe F-SLEX Model-"G" FDB 120mm fans and they are quiet too but I needed to get yellow fans to match my color scheme on my MSI Z87 XPower motherboard. I admit, I was a little worried and it took me a few days to pull the trigger (mainly because it was going to be an expensive purchase since I needed 15 or 16 of these to fit my CaseLabs TH10 case fan mounts and 120.4 (480) Alphacool Monsta radiator. These Vipers MORE THAN DELIVERED! PROS: 1. Inaudible @ 600rpm - 1100rpm 2. From 1100rpm - 1600rpm they''re almost as quiet as 600rpm - 1100rpm 3. MAX speed @ 1900rpm, still the only thing you hear is just the sound of blowing air. There is barely a hint of bearing or motor noise. 4. The PWM speed control is flawless AND quiet. NO annoying ticking noises across the entire RPM range. 5. The 600 - 1900 RPM range is an excellent range of speed. 6. Truthful specs! This is important as a lot of manufacturers "exaggerate" the specs of their fans on the box. CONS: They only come with these ghetto yellow rubber fan mount spikes. I tossed them and used regular fan screws. CONCLUSION: If your build calls for this color, quietness, a large amount of airflow, or you are water cooling and needs high amounts of static pressure, these are amazing performers all around. They''re fast, quiet, look great, blow tons of air, are perfect against radiators, and will cool your components in push/pull or plain case fan configurations. I would not hesitate to buy these again if the need arises.
