Really good value fans, needed to replace two of mine so I've been watching, apparently the rebate started on 8/26.. searched for 120mm & Cooler Master and didn't see anything.

did this last time. got the 5 dollar check from cooler master and forgot to cash/deposit it before it expired 2 months later lol. these fans do NOT move much air at all, but are quiet

I got this 4 pack a year or so ago... been handy for changing out old/dead/small/noisy fans. They aren't high rpm, but this is fine for me, I prefer more fans with less airflow/noise anyway.

I went all pwm fans tho and they're far quieter because they work at lower speeds. Not cheap but far better way.

Just because a fan has PWM does not mean it works better at lower speeds

it doesn't really matter if it does or not. The reasoning for investing in PWM is noise

The reason to invest in PWM is to be able to thermally control your fans from the motherboard. If I was only concerned about noise I would solder resistors inline on some standard fans.

you can do that in any modern BIOS with a 3 pin case fan. You can set a "ratio" or whatever RPMs / whatever temps. Some BIOSes are more sophisticated than others but the few "Z" chipsets boards I had all had some sort of fan controller. PWM on the other hand lets u "fine tune" this to a greater extent in software. If thermals are the issue then a 3 pin case fan should be sufficient but if noise is the issue, i found that a pwm can lower RPMs to a greater extent than 3 pin thus providing less noise.

That's probably right. And I do use mostly PWM and have 1 or two 3 pins fans on my mobo too. I think I just haven't had good luck recently getting a board with decent fan tuning on it. I think Asus was the best experience I've had with OEM software.

These fans undervolt to 5v just fine for a near-silent solution, and the ones I have don't have any clicking noises at low RPM like I've found with other fans.

I found Asus to be the best as well. AI Suite is probably the best at controlling fans etc. Im currently messing with a Gigabyte Z97 board and Im not too impressed but just like you, I only run PWM. Can't say much about my MSI h97 board either. I have yet to try Asrock though.

These are not high static pressure fans so they are not good for radiators contrary to claims.

These have sleeve bearings so they are not durable. I had some smaller Coolermaster sleeve bearing fans and after awhile the bearings start to whine and drive you nuts. They got so noisy I ended up unplugging them when they went bad.

Do yourself a favor and get some good fans. They cost more but they last longer. These are really cheaply made. Just my 2 cents worth.
