Very, very quiet Very low tone, no annoying high frequency sound Good low rpm performance Genuine Matsushita Fluid Dynamic Bearings (HDD type bearings) Build quality High quality rubber mounts (much nicer than Noctua's)
None, Not a single one. Not even the slightest hint of one. It's all good. Very, very good. Buy them.
Installed two of these in a push/pull configuration on my cpu cooler heat exchanger. They are noticeably quieter than the Noctua NF-F12 fans they replaced. Before installing I ran one side to side with a Noctua and there was no contest, the Fractal was far quieter at the same rpm. My only remaining question was whether they would provide sufficient pressure to move air through the double thickness heat exchanger. No worries. The CPU temps remained the same. So to sum up, compared to the Noctuas these are cheaper, quieter, cool just as well, and look better. What's not to love?
