What can I say that hasn't been already said ? Noctua is one if not the best for silent fans. Their fan have a very good performance/silence ratio. I bought this fan to pull cold air from the front on my case. Because I had a filter and a not very cooling-friendly case, I decided to get a high pressure fan. The NF-F12 does the job very good compared to my old Coolermaster h 4$.
I purchased this fan on sale for $19 and at that price it was an absolute steal. I'm using it as a pull fan to work with the existing NF-F12 that came with my NH-U12S CPU cooler. It's very quiet and doesn't need to spin up at all. The accessories included are very complete and I'm actually using the L.N.A (Low-noise-adapter) on an older 3-pin Scythe fan to keep it in check.
I bought this fan for a CPU cooler(which this model seems more specifically geared towards) and have been completely happy with it. It achieves better performance than my stock fan at lower rpm's and noise levels.
The build and quality is evident from the rubberized corners to reduce vibration to the included, sleeved adapters and rubber mounts.
I hummed and hawed over this purchase to be used as case fans. In the end I bought 5 of them for case fans. 2 front intake and 3 exhaust. I have very tight grills on my case (Bitfenix Ghost)which is why I went with these fans. Avg. temp at motherboard in my case is 20-21C. These are great fans with great build quality. Picked them up on sale for 19, they arent worth more than that so price shop or buy them on sale.
The fans have worked perfectly for 6 months, I have found the extra included cables to be very useful. The fans a very high quality and feel very sturdy. I am using them in replacement of stock fans on a Swiftech h220 and they perform better and give lower temperatures for less noise overall than the stock fans.
Relatively silent, but not as silent as the previous 120mm 1500rpm's gen which I also have. Still a good fan but make sure you pricematch them ($42 almost seems like a site error). Not as impressed with these as I was with the previous gen, pick up the others if you can.

Great fan installed it on front intake of Corsair 550D. Bought only one at $22.99 was worried it might not fit but fit in just barely. Snug fit but with that anti vibration rubber pads can't hear or notice any vibration. Great fan not sure if it's worth the cost only time will tell but from my experience with Noctua. It will be.
I built a computer for audio recording and put a Noctua fan in the power supply just because linus said they were quiet and I didn't like the color, So I did that and fell in love with it, I liked the color it was quiet and felt quality, so I ordered 2 of these to replace the bitfenix pros and they easily out shine them.
