5.0 out of 5 stars Best fan I've come across 21 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
This is quite literally THE best fan I've had in a computer case. I have it on the back to extract hot air, and even with a grill on it, I can still feel the air flow 8 inches away from the fan. It's also not loud at all, and my motherboard's north bridge chipset claims to be a whole 7*C cooler even at full load. It also aids hot air extraction from the CPU heat sink massively, as the fans on those are usually on the other side of it.

TOP TIP: You MUST use the 4-pin Molex connector if you want this fan to run at full speed. Do not connect it to your motherboard directly. Instead use their special adapter, which powers the fan from your PSU directly but gives you a yellow sensor wire to put on your motherboard. This means the fan runs at full speed, and then tells the motherboard how quickly it's running. ~1461 RPM at the moment apparently.

I only wish this fan would be available in 140mm too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time to cool it down 31 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
Two of these fans (set up as a push-pull pair on a Corsair H80 water cooling block) have transformed my computer from the slow cooker it used to be.

My rig is a second hand Alienware Aurora, i7-980X, GTX770, 24MB of 2GHz memory, and Windows 8 Pro. The previous owner had replaced the Alienware system inlet fan with a Noctua 90mm fan, and the CPU fan (sitting on a Corsair H80 cooling radiator, so it is also the system outlet fan) with 2 Enermax Silence 120mm fans set up as push-pull.

That led to a very quiet system, but this is a rig I bought for video editing and the occasional high end gaming (well... that's what I bought it for, but the `occasional high end gaming' seems to be far more enjoyable than the video editing at the moment!).

The computer actually shut down on high temperature during a game of Battlefield 3, and a quick look at the hardware temperatures confirmed that it was all running far too hot: mid 70s for the CPU for constant 100% load, mid 80s for the GPU for 100% load, and high 90s for the chipset. The chipset was actually sitting at the high 70s on no load!

Anyway, the fix was trivial: replace the 2 Enermax with two Scythe `Gentle Typhoons'. Everything is back to expected temperatures: the CPU and GPU are 30-32 degrees on no load, and neither break much over 70 for full continuous load with 10% overclock (and below 70 on default clocks). The chipset now sits below 60 for no load, and low 60s for load.

The best thing of all is that the typhoons are not only better at keeping my system cooler, but they are almost as quiet as the much slower Enermax fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smooth operator 11 Aug 2012
Very nice fans indeed. They do what the name suggests, they are very quiet running off my motherboard via the 3 pin power & they shift a lot of air. I can literally feel the cold air being sucked into the front of my case & out the back with my hand a few inches away, which i couldn't before with my generic Cooler Master fans. In comparison i'd have to have my hand almost touching the case to feel anything.

My main gripe with them is the orientation of the 3 pin power cable, my generic Cooler Master fans had them in just the right place when facing the correct way. But when mounting the Scythe fans in my case the cable is on the opposite side from my motherboard. So my front fan had to be rotated, so that when i threaded the wire through the front drive bays the cable could reach to the motherboard fan header, while the rear one needed a little tape(good old tape) to secure the dangling wire on the underside of the fans frame, then plugged into the motherboard.

In conclusion, i'm very pleased with them, they are very pricey for a fan. I would recommend them if your looking for case/heatsink fans that can shift a lot of air & be relatively quiet doing so. Fitting an entire case with these would cost a small fortune. I highly suggest shopping around for the best deal. Recommended.

For high-performance computers, good cooling is critical. However few people want a system that sounds like a hairdryer cross-bred with a chainsaw. This has led to a profusion of almost-silent fans with mediocre-to-poor airflow (Nexus, Sharkoon).

The Gentle Typhoon series provides better airflow (subjectively, twice as much as a Sharkoon Silent Eagle and 3-4 times that of a Nexus) while still being whisper quiet - the air it pushes tends to make more noise that the fan. This has led to a number of favourable reviews from hardware sites (an online search for "gentle typhoon review" should turn up results aplenty).

Sadly this comes at a high price - anyone finding themselves buying more than 3 or 4 should consider watercooling their system instead.
