Ich habe neun Stück zusammengefügt mit Kabelbindern und die entstandene Platte in eine Dachluke geklemmt. Bei 7 oder 8 Volt hört man sie fast nicht und hat wunderschöne Luft im Auto. Aber Achtung die Luft Schaufeln sind messerscharf.
I bought two of these fans to sit in a BitFenix - Nova ATX Mid Tower Case, the case is a different story, each pack comes with the fan and 4 generic case fan screws. Easy enough to fit and connect up, both worked straight out of the box, I have these connected up with a molex to fan converter as there is only one spare header on the motherboard being used and is for exhaust at the back. When I tested them before putting them in it was obvious they had some power behind them considering the price as the one that was stood up started pulling itself along the desk and the other laid flat was pulling down to the desk. For the price you pay these are great quality, they are as they mention low noise but they can still be heard. The only reason I didn't give them the full 5 is that the fans are a little sharp and I got a boo boo :(
I'll be upfront about this and say, you'll find it relatively difficult to find a better deal on a 5 pack of controllable fans than this. Fans stay very quiet during low RPM operations, have mine set at around 650RPM while idle and ramp up to about 1250RPM during load, which is loud but not extremely obnoxious. Going above about 1200 RPM does however start becoming more and more obnoxious if you really dislike loud fans, however my experience is little limited with different fans used to take that with a grain of salt. As a replacement set for my default case fans, couldn't be happier about them. Solid performing, plenty of air flowing through the case and love the look of white blades on a black frame, adds a bit of colour to my black case. Have received one faulty fan in the pack of 5 I bought and contacted Arctic about it, who responded quite fast and sent out a replacement really quick without any further discussion, so I must give 5 stars to their customer service on that one. Installation is quite easy, just be wary that as most likely many other fans, the holes don't come pre-tapped so you'll be essentially drilling into the plastic the first time you install them. The PWM feature works great with the pc (however my motherboard doesn't have fan setting features so had to resort to other software outside of Bios to deal with all of that). The daisy chaining works fine and really helped make sure my pc could use all fans as I only have 3 motherboard headers for case fans and put 5 of these fans in my case. Overall really satisfied with the fans and customer service provided due to needing a replacement, and would buy these again if I needed a cheaper set of controllable fans for a pc build.
A really top quality fan! Thus far this seems a good product. I have replaced a non adjustable fan (connected via a Molex plug) with this one so I can control the speed of the fan dependent on the CPU/Motherboard temperature.
It has a 4 pin plug which allows the support of full PWM control.
At slow to moderate speeds it is pretty much inaudible compared to the CPU fan (stock Intel fan) and even at full tilt the volume is very well controlled. It moves a lot of air too so a worthy upgrade. This fan is priced really well too. Sadly I have noticed it has dropped in price again since I purchased so it's even more of a bargain too.
It has a fluid bearing too so I am hoping this lasts a long time, especially compared to sleeve bearing fans.
As mentioned it is a shame the cable isn't sleeved to hide the ugly cable colours, but this is probably only important for those who take a particular interest in the way the inside of their case looks. Saying that the cable is long enough to reach your headers no matter where they might be on the board.
I have reduced a star because my fan had a few blades that were a bit unfinished on the tips. It looked as though the machining had not made a clean cut on two of the blade tips which is a shame. I was able to tidy this by scraping the plastic off and thankfully it doesn't appear to create any vibration or noise issues.
Overall, I am happy with the fan and I have other Arctic products so vouch for the quality.
I fitted this as a (lower) front intake fan in my tower case. It was straightforward using the four supplied screws to attach the fan to the case, but you do need to fix two diagonally opposite screws first (e.g. bottom left, top right) or you might find it difficult to locate the other two screws. I needed the cable to reach the fan socket at the top of the motherboard, and needed to take the cable out of the cable restraint to the rear of the fan to reach this; it really needs to be maybe 10cm longer. The instruction manual is an A5 sheet in small print which explains how to connect the cables, and daisy-chain up to five fans, either via the four-pin CPU cooler socket or a separate four-pin chassis fan socket. Plugging my single fan into a single four pin chassis socket didn't show the fan speed in the BIOS or in Argus Monitor, however; I needed to plug the second, single cable three-pin plug into the other chassis fan socket for it to read out, which was listed as Optional in the instructions and not made clear. I thought that the main-four connector cable should do this.
I'm inclined to buy a separate cable and to plug the power cable into a spare SATA cable to free the first chassis fan connector, as I want to fit another couple of F12s. The instructions note that daisy-chaining fans on the chassis fan connectors is limited to 0.7A, and an F12 draws 0.25A so you might get away with running three. An F8 draws only 0.16A, so you might mix fan sizes.
There's a noticeable improvement to airflow through my case after fitting this beast. There is also an indication of the direction of airflow - an arrow - on the side of the frame.
Before fitting Artic 7 pro I wasn't sure it would fit in my Aerocool Cube case but it did, installation is a little tricky but as long as you take your time it's fine, when I saw the mounting bracket system I thought it would be hard to fit but as long as you look at the pictures carefully because there is no txt to guide you, the way the bracket fits is pretty secure and does a good job, having pre applied thermal paste was a bonus, when screwing the 2 screws make sure you do it evenly, the cooler is fitted to my Pentium G3258 overclocked to 4.3GHz and after 10 mins of Prime 95 Temp still only at 65 degrees with the stock cooler it was 75 - 80 degrees so I think It was worth every penny...
Good value quite quiet fans, one of the cheapest so called silent fans around, they even beat the prices of the generic all singing and dancing cheap more noisy led fans you can buy. I have used these many many times before in pc's so i knew what to expect they are not as quiet as something like a Noctua fan however they are much cheaper. If you can sacrifice a little extra noise (not much at all really) these are good value for the price! be aware there are 2 different types the PWM ones which work off a 4 pin motherboard header and are adjusted dependant on demand or the 3 pin non PWM standard fans. some include a 4 pin molex as well in case you dont have a free header on the motherboard but you can run upto 4 fans off 1 header with a fan splitter cable. the headers typically output 1A and the fans typically take 0.25A
