Posted 26 November 2012 - 03:27 AM
One died in a month, the other died today at about 6 months.
Do Not buy this fan.
Scythe Slip Stream Kaze Jyuni 120MM Fan 1900RPM 110.3CFM 37DBA
manufactures Part #: SY1225SL12SH
I have ordered this fan, should be here in 5 days.
Silverstone 120MM FM121 Case Fan 800-2500RPM 17-39.5DBA MAX. 110CFM W/ Black Knob
manufactures Part #: RL-FM121-B
Its 110cfm, 2 ball bearings, 12 bucks, hopefully it will last along time.
Meanwhile I under clocked CPU to 2GHz, it was overclocked to 4GHz, so this will keep CPU from getting to hot for now. Its about 58c rite now under little load.

I dont care if its noisy or not.
I just finished tearing down PC to put new video card in, had to move a hard drives out of the way to get it to fit, theres 4 hard drives, then a few days later fan dies, typical......

The website showed a pic of the control knob just hanging on the end of the wire and implied it had 3 speeds.
In fact the control knob is on a plate that fits in the floppy bay on the case, and the knob is a potentiometer giving infinity variable speed.
Max RPM is rated at 2400, mine does 2500, setting the knob at 53% gave me about 2280 RPM, it cools good there and I figure it will last longer cuz its not running at full speed.
Is cools a bit better than the fan it replaced.
Its a bit noisy, high pitched whine, if you slow it down it dosnt get much quieter just a lower pitched whine, but CPU is overclocked lots so I dont care about noise.
