Used this to replace one in my Shuttle PC power supply and it is very quiet (well so far it is - about 3 weeks). It is not that cheap but if it lasts then it's worth it. Now I have replaced this fan I can hear the noise coming from the CPU cooler - ho hum more expense. Took over a week to get to me but I wasn't in a hurry so no beef there.

I'm not sure what I was expecting, to be honest, but I was expecting a fan with a little more power than an asthmatic mouse.

It is VERY quiet - I had to check the fan was spinning, because I couldn't hear anything. The problem is, I couldn't feel it moving any air - I eventually found a feather and could see it was blowing, but it remains to be seen if it's shifting enough air to keep this box cool.

Purchased as a quiet replacement for the fan on a Microserver PSU - perfect!

HASH(0x91ab58c4) out of 5 stars If you have to sit next to a 1U server here's your solution 6 Jan. 2013
By johnny1559 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
1U servers are notoriously loud. The only fan that will fit in a 1U server is little 40mm fan. To move much air a 40mm fan has to whine like a banshee.

Usually this is not a problem because servers sit in remote server rooms, but what if you have to sit next to one? I have a 1U Supermicro server with an Atom D525 CPU. It has three 40mm fans and it's racked right next to my desk. The high pitched whine from this server was driving me nuts.

I replaced the 3 stock 40mm fans with these Scythe 40mm fans. I glue gunned them in, which worked fine. I started the server and did a double take -- I didn't believe it was running because I was used to listening for the usual whine. No more whine! Now almost silent!

I knew these wouldn't move as much air as my stock fans even when the stock fans were running at low speed. Yep -- right away I saw a 10-15C increase in average CPU temperature. At idle it now hovers around 45C whereas before it was around 30C. The Atom CPU is rated up to 100C and my use for this box is a pfSense router which doesn't stress the CPU much, so in my situation the elevated temperature is fine. But obviously, depending on your situation, you may not be able to get away with the reduced airflow and increased CPU temp that is the tradeoff which comes with using these Scythe fans versus stock fans.

Great with some caveats -- won't work for every situation but worked great for mine.

P.S: Be careful not to bend or stress the power wires on these fans! I learned the hard way that the solder joints they're connected to are extremely delicate.

HASH(0x91b26a14) out of 5 stars The fan is good - but the supplier is outstanding! 16 May 2010
By Arthur Kimes - Published on Amazon.com

My computer has it's GPU (Graphics processor) as part of the motherboard instead of a graphics card. You usually get better performance from graphics cards but for my needs the motherboard graphics are plenty good enough.

Except... any time I run a 3d game the temperature of the GPU goes sky high. The GPU on a graphics card would do the same but those have heat sinks and cooling fans to control that. My GPU only has a small heat sink.

I needed a way to cool it off.

I couldn't find anything! Search for GPU cooling and you find other people complaining in online forums but no solutions. But I knew something had to be out there.

I wrote emails to some PC cooling specialty stores.

CoolerGuys wrote back quickly with detailed recommendations! Turns out I was looking for the wrong thing. Instead of a GPU cooler, I needed a northbridge cooler (the GPU is part of the northbridge). And they had many ways to cool the northbridge.

One of their suggestions was this fan. What's impressive about the pick is that this fan wouldn't normally be considered as a northbridge cooler. But CoolerGuys figured out a clever way to use the fan's screws to latch onto the northbridge heat sink.

I decided to give their suggestion a try.

Before using the fan my GPU would typically run at 180f and would zoom towards 210f during graphically intense games (I never found out how high it might go as I would stop the game when the temperature got that high).

After installing the fan the GPU runs at 120f! And, during those games, the max temp levels out at 132f!

That's a fantastic result for a five dollar fan*.

And the fan is quiet. Since it's quieter than my CPU fan and my computer's case fan it I can't even hear it!

Summing it up. The fan is good but CoolerGuys are GREAT!

*I did have to pick up a power adaptor to plug the fan into a molex plug on my computer's power supply. Those are cheap.

HASH(0x91ac3594) out of 5 stars Super Quiet 1 Feb. 2011
By Winston - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Super quite fan! I bought it to replace the fan inside my Micro iTX PSU that is super noisy. This fan is so quiet I had to get about 6 inches from it to hear any sound. Unfortunately it 20mm deep and I didn't check that before ordering because of the design of the PSU I couldn't use this fan. Still I would recommend this for anyone looking for a quiet fan and has 20 mm of mounting depth.

Side note, some people claim sleeve bearings are shorter life span than ball bearings and that you should only use ball bearing fans. While this may be true the lifespan of both units are high enough that even if you ran the fan 24/7 it would take years for the fan to fail. At this point you'll probably be getting a new computer for other reasons.

HASH(0x91ac3168) out of 5 stars very quiet fan 21 Jun. 2012
By Ernie - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I used this fan to replace a noisy stock fan on my ASRock E350M1 motherboard (Zacate processor). I had tried numerous other fans without success, but this one is nearly silent and provides adequate cooling. This fan is 20mm thick, as opposed to my original fan being 10mm thick, but it fits very nicely in my M350 Mini-ITX enclosure.

Works ok with 12v as it is designed (doesnt move with 5v), quiet, two pin and three pin connectors, good value.
