Customer Reviews

Sweet fan


This is a great fan overall only wished it was a dust proof fan that's all. it's super silent too.

Great fan, little noise and tiny price


I bought this fan as replacement for the stock fan of a Via VB8001G Epia motherboard installed in my little SOHO server. The stock fan is really noisy and i couldn't bear with this anymore. As soon as replaced the fan with this product, i could hear the sound of the hard disk instead of the noise of the fan. This is really a great product and at a little price. Thank you Quiet PC.

Virtually silent!


This made an enormous difference in lowering the noise of my RAID array card while reducing its temperature as well. I can't recommend this highly enough.The only gripe I have is that it doesn't come with any matching 12mm screws or bolts, so I had to hunt for some that fit.

Well worth the price


I installed two of these onto an old Shuttle pc. One for the ATI graphics card and the other for the PSU. I feel like have gone deaf or hard of hearing with these fans. I must admit I was sceptical at first but well surprised. The only thing I hear now is the HDD. Service was brilliant. I ordered the fans on Friday, arrived the Saturday. Thanks Quiet PC!!!



At the risk of sounding like an idiot, I actually detached this fan after the 1st installation as I was convinced I had got something wrong - it made no perceivable noise whatsoever. It does work very well, and is totally silent. Brilliant. Plus, 10* to Quiet PC, ordered it 1pm on a Friday, normal 1st class post, arrived Saturday. Very impressed by the service.

Excellent quiet fan


Ordered six of these to attach to various north/south bridge and RAID card heatsinks. I screwed them down with 3.5x20mm self-tapping screws. Very quiet, and move enough air to keep the heatsinks (which were very hot to touch) much cooler.

One has a slight intermittent low buzz, but I can only hear it with the case side off, and the other five are fine. Would have got ten stars if it had a third wire for monitoring, but for cooling chipset heatsinks they're great. In fact I'm about to order some more!

Excellent service


I ordered 2 fans during the worst spell of snow (almost 2 feet in 2 days) and freezing temperatures (-18c) I have ever known in the 40 years I have lived in Lincolnshire and I know that Malton was experiencing the same severe weather. Despite this the fans were delivered within 3 days of my ordering which was an amazing feat and I cannot praise the service I received too highly.

Solid and quiet


Using this with my Zalman ZM-NB47J to cool down the northbridge. Used super glue to attach it on the side of the heatsink. It's quiet and feels solid.

Replaced a fan in TiscaliTV box...perfectly silent


Perfect.....silenced old noisy heavy fan in TiscaliTV PVR box.



I used this to replace the noisy fan in my media player. It has made a huge difference, operates at near total silence. In fact, the only way to tell if it's working is to put your hand round the back! Very highly recommended.



I must say this fix is risky, do not try at home...

I was a naughty boy *ahem* and used this as a replacement fan in a power unit for a shuttle xpc. Apart from the inerrant risks of delving into a PSU, the installation was fine.

The fan runs almost inaudibly, and keeps the PSU temp lower than the original fan. Brilliant, worth more than the asking price!

Excellent Product


I used this fan to replace the standard fan in a Thecus N299. The Thecus is an excellent product but was causing a lot of noise in our living area. The replacement of the cooling fan with this product has now made it inaudible. Fast delivery and an excellent product make this 10/10.
