Experience: 7 Years


Excellent Static pressure.
Has lasted me 7+yrs & still going.
Cons Too loud for people that like silence or mild-mid noise levels.Can cause hearing damage if too close.


Excellent fan for moving air as case/CPU/VGA fan.
I have used this fan in older pc's(2001-2005)with thermalright heatsinks.It does great cooling BUT be WARNED! that place this on the side window or front of your case & having it less then 1 foot away from your body on a desktop will cause you to LOSE your hearing !!! after prolonged use.
I was using it on my desktop for at least 4yrs & now i speak louder & don't hear aswell as 8yrs ago when 1st using these.
KEEP AWAY FROM EARS atleast 3-4feet on desktop or keep in shelf or underdesk !!!!
I still love these fans & the 92mm versions ncix seems to not carry.

Very Powerful. Has Amazing Airflow


Well I needed a fan that had a lot of great air flow and this fan does just that. Now if I can only figure out how to quiet the darn thing down! It is EXTREMLY loud. It is actually too loud for me to handle so I had to stop using it unfortunatly.

Experience: 1 Days

Verified OwnerVerified Owner


lifetime warranty
Cons 55db
very noisy
like a vacuum cleaner at full speed.


First don't buy this fan if you don't have a fan controller to calm down this fury thing.
At full speed it make the sound of my vacuum cleaner.
It's make anybody crazy.
And don't squeeze your finger on it cause you will loose it.:P
But for a 80mm fan I think it's the most powerfull on the market. It will cool any hot compter. I use it for an air duct to my cpu.
I ran it a slowest mode with my controller cause it make a big noise.

Experience: 6 Months


-Small fan, lotsa air
Cons -LOUD! (subjectively louder than the 92mm Tornado)


This fan certainly lives up to its name. It puts out a tremendous amount of air at full speed. I tried pointing it at myself when it was on and whoa crazy. You definately would not want to run this at full speed all the time so I would recommend some type of fan controller to tame this beast (I'm using the Sunbeam Rheobus controller).

Experience: 1 Days


Lowered the temp by 10 degrees c


oh my god this is a very loud fan but i guess that's the price you pay for nice cool temps.(lowered it by 10 degrees c)
I am going to buy a fan controller to turn it down while not playing games.

Experience: 4 Months


pushs ALOT of air


I have 5 of these becasue i found a sale to get them at 10$ each. I thought that if the sound was to much i wasnt down to much money. Well they were tolerable at first but it just gets anoying. The package does state the dbs though so i was warned Unless you really need them i dont think they are worth it. But they are really cool.

Experience: 3 Weeks


High output, high CFM
Makes for a great fan for building mini hovercrafts.
Cons LOUD!!! Very Loud.


I bought a couple of these fans to make a hovercraft for UBC's Physics Olympics, which took place about a week ago, and these can carry about 3 kilos. It's powerful enuf to turn stuff like toothpicks into mulch (don't try this at home). It's loudness is great for scaring the competition, but when used on a PC for daily use, they seem impractical if you don't have a fan controller. Overall, it's a great piece of art, which should be named "Monster" instead of Tornado.

Experience: 5 Days


-5700 rpm, crazy airflow
-Can lower noise to acceptable noise level with Fan Controller
-Looks cool :D
-Comes with all you need

Cons -Not really anything.


I didn't list the noise as a weakness because you cannot have a 5700 rpm fan without it. If people want a silent fan witht he same airflow, they can keep dreaming :D

Running two exhaust Tornados, lowered my mobo temp 4-5 degrees, and my CPU temp 2-3 degrees based on Sisoft Sandra software.

I have my comp in my room, and I can sleep with them on when I turn it down with my Vantec Nexus FC. airflow is still very good when its turned down, 3300ish rpm. Comes with a grill, DO NOT neglect to put that on. Get your finger in there and its game over, yo.

Experience: 5 Days


Ultimeate aitflow
Cons Extremely noisy


Awesome fan, I love the tornados despite the EXTREME NOISE. I recommend it to anyone who is willing to withstand the sheer cocaphony.

84.1 CFM
does what it's supposed to
Cons none


This fan is amazing. Two of these dropped my case temp done 7 degrees and my cpu down 10 degrees. I oc'd 300 mhz and it's still running 3 degrees cooler than stock. It says in the desciption that it's 55 decibals, so if you have a problem with it, you should know whats coming. I just can't wait for my controller :p
