The fan is also supplied with a HDD mounting kit, allowing the fan to be mounted directly to any 3½" hard drive to aid cooling.

Customer Reviews

Excellent fan - works well long term

,

Working fine for around 2 years in an ITX setup in a kitchen - the fan picked up a lot of dirt from the environment - until 6 weeks ago when I decommissioned the machine. Very quiet, I used it to replace a faulty fan on an Alpenföhn Panorama. When I can’t afford Noctua I’m more than happy to go for Scythe.

Scythe Kaze Jyu SLIM 100mm 2000RPM Case/HDD Fan

,

Required this to sit in front of 4 sata hard disks in my HP ProLiant server. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough room to mount it on the cage that sits in front on the drives so I removed the cage, drilled 2 small holes in the case above the drives and mounted the fan with a cable tie at each corner - 2 in the holes above and 2 in the grill below. The drives were very hot to the touch before I fitted the fan but now they are cool to the touch. The fan is very quiet and there is a good airflow between the drives now. This fan just fits neatly behind the front case cover.

FAQ

  • How do I measure fan size?

    The size of fan you need will generally be determined by the size of the fan fitting position in your PC case. The sizes of all the fans on our website are shown as measured along any one of the fan’s four sides, NOT the distance between the fan’s screw holes! Our most popular fan size is 120mm, followed by 80mm. This isn’t really dictated by customer preference, but more by recent designs of PC cases.

    As for the thickness (depth) of the fan, generally 25mm (1 inch) is by far the most common depth, although smaller fans can have shallower depths such as 15mm or even 10mm. All our fans are 25mm thick unless otherwise stated. If you have any questions about which fan you should order, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    If you know the distance between the fan mounting screw holes but don’t know what fan size to order, please see the following table. Note that the mounting hole measurements shown below are taken horizontally or vertically between the holes and not diagonally.

  • I received a small cable (resistor) with my fan; what is it for?

    The resistor cable (also called Ultra Low Noise or ULN cable) is designed to allow the fan to run slightly slower for even quieter operation. The benefit in lower running noise is significant. Although the airflow will be reduced slightly, this usually has minimal effect on PC temperature. We would generally recommend using the ULN resistor cable for best results in almost all circumstances.

  • How can I tell which way the air blows through the fan?

    Hold the fan so that the round fan sticker is facing you. You are looking at the rear of the fan. When you plug the fan in, the air will be blowing towards you. If you want a fan to act as an air intake, then the fan sticker will be facing the inside of the case. Some fans also have two small arrows moulded into their plastic housing - one arrow shows the direction of airflow, and the other (at 90°) shows the direction of blade rotation.

  • Is it possible to use a 4-pin PWM fan or CPU cooler with a motherboard which has only 3-pin fan headers on it?

    Electrically, there is no problem doing this - the fourth pin on the fan cable is used purely for PWM control and is not needed in order for the fan to run. So you can plug the 4-pin fan connector onto the 3-pin motherboard fan header, leaving the fourth pin not connected to anything. The fan will potentially run at full speed, so if you would like to reduce the speed of the fan you will need to adjust the fan speed setting in your BIOS or use fan control software such as SpeedFan in Windows.

    The only other problem to consider is that occasionally, components immediately adjacent to the motherboard fan header can get in the way of the larger 4-pin fan connector, physically preventing connection. This problem also occurs if you try to use an in-line fan speed controller such as the one made by Gelid.

    Another avenue to explore is the possibility of using a bay-mounted fan controller. Several models are available now which provide 4-pin fan headers, so this is an easy way to use 4-pin PWM fans in a PC system which has only 3-pin fan headers on its motherboards. When using this method, you may find it necessary to disable any fan warning settings in your motherboard BIOS, since the motherboard may incorrectly believe that its CPU fan has failed when the fan is connected to a fan controller rather than directly to the motherboard itself.

“Fast and flawless delivery even abroad”

“Ordered a small PC case (Akasa Turing for Intel NUC) that is very new on the market. The shipping happened on the day they promised in the order confirmation. Even though delivery was abroad to Germany the package arrived only two days later.

Packaging and protection was adequate and the content arrived undamaged. I was a bit irritated, that the packaging of the product itself did not look like retail packaging (brown box, not sealed and marked with only a smallish sticker), but everything was perfectly new, unused and complete.

All in all I am very satisfied and would order again at Quiet PC. I did not expect everything going so swiftly for an order from another country.”
