Damn, I just bought 6 120mm fans from ebuyer, each costing 3 times as much! When I spec'd up this machine the other day this fan must have cost more or I just missed it!

These used to cost less than a pound a couple of years ago.

Would have been £1.43 each for you then :-(

But not £1.49 delivered to Aberystwyth....
WE have to pay delivery charges here... no free delivery.
It's not that out of the way .......

No screws and likely to be very noisy, cheap, but cold.

These are cheap for good reason, as above. I just got one of these, much better option:
ebuyer.com/pro…390

£4 is still small change.

Or you could try reading the reviews instead of being presumptuous...

Looks like they arem pretty quiet considering the price, espeicially if you do the 5v or 7.5v mods (which is extremely easy).
And some of the more recent reviews say they did come with screws.

Good price and the recent reviews look ok.
Might even go for one!

If enough folk said they'd not buy due to P&P would they charge you less?
I'd like to hope so.

Thanks

Voting hot, would be annoyed if it were loud? but worth a shot for 1.50

Good find!
Just ordered 2 and will see how silent they are.

As Mamboboy mentione you won't need to have these spinning too fast to get them moving a lot of air.

Anyway, if you put them in your top vent & turned them on full your PC would probably take off

i have orderd one thanks nice oneee.hottt

I bought 3 last time they were at this price, they came with screws and they are fairly quite, vfm

should have read here first! just bought 50 screws too!! DAMN

No word of a lie, I use these inside my Sandtrooper lid. (it gets hot in armour). Great rpice for spare fans, i'm guessing mediaeval re enacters will also use these...

Note: it says 4 pin connector, but that is not quite accurate. The usual 4 pin header connector has a pin for frequency measurement and a pin for speed control. This one has a molex connector, and only uses two of the four pins.

For a real 4 pin fan this would be a great offer, but as it is I vote cold.

The bigger the fan, the slower they need to spin... which means less … The bigger the fan, the slower they need to spin... which means less noise and more airflow. I have 2x 25cm case fans on my PC and they are barely audible...Great price for these, however you're probably also going to need to buy bolt screws to fit them...I never go by Ebuyer reviews. They filter out anything bad, so anything popular is almost always 5* rated...


While they filter most of the reviews, for something basic like this it's still well worth reading them.

That's a good point actually, the description really is a bit of a swiz, they really mean molex instead of motherboard header.

Yes, but I can say with 100% certainty that these are not quiet. Inexperienced users might think they are quiet from a subjective angle, but you do not get very quiet fans on a budget, as they would be loss-leaders.

I've taken a keen interest over the past 10 years in keeping my machine as quiet as possible without going down the water-cooling route, and the cheapest 'quiet' fan I have found that is good for it's price is the Xilence Red Wing series.

Sure, they are no match for Akasa Apaches, Yate Loons, Nexus and other high-end 'silent' fans, but they are good enough on a budget for a quieter system.

Cheap fans suffer from motor noise when undervolted, and will have standard fin designs which drop cfm exponentially with rpm is reduced.

I have to laugh at the one review where the person guesses the dba and cfm of the fan. You can't guess these things, come back when you have tested it in an anechoic chamber.

I was going to make a similar post last night as the specification certainly doesn't suggest they are quiet: 1600rpm / Airflow: 54 CFM / Noise: 32 dBA .

My 120mm Noctua intakes are currently setup at: 900rpm / Airflow: 46.3 CFM / Noise: 10.6 dB

These are nice and cheap though so I think it's a hot deal.

just wondering when you are installing a case fan do you set it to blow or suck into the case?

Depends on your case : )

Typically you create positive pressure (more air in) or negative pressure (more air out).

Is it a branded case? You may be able to find recommendations from existing owners.
I suspect it will be a front/intake (suck), rear/exhaust (blow).
