Silent to Power User Ready Silent user can obtain more airflow without sacrificing in noise level and power user can get extra airflow from the static pressure feature. Total 5 different rpm to choose from! (500rpm ~ 1900rpm)
4-Pin Peripheral Adopter ProvideMore Airflow Compare to a standard 120mm case fan available in the market, Scythe Slip Stream 120mm case fan generates more airflow (Approximately 20~40% more).
4-Pin Peripheral Adopter Provided To be versatile, this case fan comes with the 4-pin peripheral adopter.

This ting is working as my front intake fan in my system that recently got a lot of fans swapped out; I needed something that pushed more than ~60CFM for the front for the perfect equal-positive pressure airflow so I got this fan. I have it hooked up to one of the 3-pin headers on my mobo that allows fan control but to be honest, it's not even that loud to my ears at full speed. With or without price match, the price is great! I think I'm going to use these over the ~60CFM Slipstreams from now on.
i have two of these as side intake, both are on lowest setting on my fan controller. both of them (on loweset rpm) are still louder than my noctua 140mm heatsink fan (max rpm) + stock coolermaster 140mm fan (max rpm) + 2 120mm coolermaster led fan (max rpm).
Three out of four all went at the same time (within a month).
They were cleaned every three months, and at not clogged with dust. The worst part is that they will start spinning when you start the system, then seize after they get hot. This can be harmful to your system, so check your if you own some.
This a pretty darned good fan, especially for the price, because as mentioned above, this thing moves a pretty good amount of air. I got this fan to exhaust hot air out the back of my case, hoping that it would move a noticeably larger amount of air than the 68CFM version, and also hopefully not be too much noisier. I'm happy to report that this fan succeeds at both tasks - I can easily feel that it's much breezier than the other model, and, to me at least, it doesn't seem any noisier, although it's rated at 400 RPM higher, and 9 DBA louder!
Good fan for the price. Scythe fans have served me well for a few systems now. This fan can be kind of loud at 1600RPM but thats to be expected, lowering the RPM via motherboard may bee possible. Personnaly I find 1200RPM-1400RPM the sweet spot for 120mm fans.
These fans are fantastic quality considering the rock bottom price. There are many other brands that charge a premium for this kind of added silence, and if you think this speed is too noisy, they offer 4 other speed variations or an attractive, functional fan controller (which I also bought). They offer great air flow at a quiet, low RPM. I might buy more for future computers just incase they get discontinued.
