I bought 2 of these for my P67 Sabertooth, like other reviewers, but I had no problem using the ASUS screws with them. DO NOT use the screws included with the fan, you need to use the screws included with the motherboard.
I needed a few of this for a Silverstone LC-19 case and these are perfect except the white colour fan blades. I would have preferred black so they didn't show through the fan grills but not a huge deal. Most 50mmm fans are 5000 RPM and whine like a cat in heat but these are not too bad. It's worth noting that 1 out of the 5 I purchased has a speed wobble and is unusable.
Got this as a support fan for my Sabertooth p67. I expected their to be a problem with the screw fittings... BUT no such thing; being as my Sabertooth came with longer screws for this very purpose! so glad :P now everything matches :D
I can not believe what happened when I pulled the fan out of the box...the screws provided with the product don't even fit...I'm going to have to redrill the hole just to use the product...fail fractal...fail. Will never buy another fractal product as this is my first time doing so and never had anything near as ridiculous as this be an issue before. Might update if I do decide to drill the fan...
Bought a couple of these to replace the white noise generator that came with my external drive enclosure. Fairly quiet operation, not silent but barely noticeable. They push a decent amount of air for a fan this size so it seems like a good balance between noise and power. The only oddity is regarding the supplied screws, the heads of which are quite small and which barely have enough meat to secure the fan to my enclosure. Works well enough for my application.
So I purchased a few of these (3 in case of defects or failures) specifically to use on a P67 Sabertooth board (in the optional 50mm cooling fan slot). The original order went in early in May of 2011 and as mentioned previously stock issues resulted in these not being shipped until mid-late August 2011. In the interim I'd picked up a few other 50mm fans to use which all functioned flawlessly and which I had zero compatibility issues with (none of which are carried by NCIX unfortunately). So I finally get the Fractal Design fans and when I go to install them, guess what, the screw holes on the fan are too small for the screws provided by ASUS for the 50mm fan slot. So yeah complete and total waste of money unless I feel like re-drilling the holes for the screws (which I don't) or going out to find some other screws so they'll fit (again not happening).
Also after sending three separate e-mails to the manufacturer to ask a simple spec question (what type of bearing does the fan use) they have yet to respond to a single one and it's been a few months since they were sent.
