I added two of these fans to a system that already had 1 in take and 1 exhaust fan. Those stock fans ran max around 850 RPM. These fans I would set max to around 1450 ~ 1500 RPM in the BIOS to get little to no noise. The fan noise increases pretty dramatically after that, but I'm still very happy to get ~1500 RPM with very little to no noise at all. Oh yes and the air flow dramatically improved through the case. I've seen my GPU / CPU core temps under load drop by about 5 deg C in my system.
- Under high RPM (2000), I thought these fans are too noisy for my liking, but what would you expect with the airflow they are able to push through?
I wanted something mid-upper range in performance without buying Noctua fans. Don't get me wrong those are awesome fans too, but these may be the first of many from Corsair that comes close to Noctua performance at a far more reasonable price. Definitely a high recommendation and will look to get these into a new system I plan to build in a few years.

These fans push a lot of air, keeping my system cool while also maintaining good static pressure. I experienced no rattling from the motors on them too, so I won't be cringing from the sound while I'm gaming.
No adapter for connecting them to the power supply, which is disappointing considering they are higher end fans. I ended up having to buy a fan hub to be able to connect all of my case fans. Also, because of the amount of air that they move, depending on the RPM you set it to, will make a humming sound against the case and other components, and in my situation it made the most noise from the air blowing against the filter.
Definitely get these if you want a low temperature system. If the air being moved by the fans makes too much noise, you can lower the RPM in the BIOS I think. Depending on the motherboard and number of fans, you may have to get a fan hub.
