I use this in my Antec P182 in the upper front fan cage, controlled by the motherboard, so it's very quiet and if temps are rising while gaming rpm goes up to cool the video card and north bridge area
I bought these (one 80mm and one 120mm) to replace the CM Blue LED Silent fans I had in the case. My case has no window so I really didn't need the blue LEDs. The front fan started getting really noisy so I figured I would just change em both. I have to say so far I'm lovin' these. They actually spin a little faster then the CMs I had but they are no louder and they DO move more air. Putting my hand behind the case I can really tell this 120mm moves more air then the CM did. All that and it's no louder! I assume the double ball bearings will you know... last longer too!

I had decided that the front intake fan on my TT tsunami was not pushing enough air. after having it replaced with this fan, there is still little to no difference in temps. however, this may be b/c the front of the tsunami is blocked off with the front door.
i have two of these inside my Antec Sonata case, one bringing cold air past the HDD's and the other removing the hot air out the back of the case. With the Sonata you can barely hear these fans. I am very pleased with Vantec Stealth fans. they push enough air without making too much noise.
I am replacing my noisy, vibrating, whining "Best Cooler" blue LED fans that only lasted about a year until they got problematic with these. Obviously, I like the peace and quiet, and the lifetime warrenty, two things I missed out on by buying the "cheap" fans before. A Great buy!
A friend got this for his case and I installed it for him. This fan certainly pushes a LOT of air. Because it's a 120mm fan and rotating at only 1500rpm, you cannot hear the mechanical noises not does it generate much vibrations. It pushes more air than 2 80mm Vantec Stealth fans. Since it pushes so much air, I'm pretty sure the higher noise rating (28dBA) is from the air flow.
This fan does the job, if you are expecting something more dead silent than this look to the SilentX, but in more cases than with the noise tolerance levels. Sound dampening is really over looked, I see reviews made that I have to wonder where they are founded from. Like with any optimal performance, any type of fan that is silent shoudl be strategically placed to prevent dead spots and work in conjunction with other fans. I would try another one of these, with exception to the SilentX 120mm with a high CFM and lower noise level at a significant extra cost.

Had item for nearly a year, was pleased when I had volcano 8 as cpu heatsink, not so pleased now with a zalman 7000. It is easily the loudest component in my computer now. It buzzes loudly in contact with metal, required rubber washers to get rid of buzzing. My thoughts?? If you've got a computer that's already a tornado, this won't make much of a sound difference. If you've got something quiet like the zalman, then this fan will stand out like a sore thumb.
