WARNING: You MUST have an Enermax controller to use this fan. The $5 fan is an "expansion unit" for their controller, not a standalone item.

WARNING: You MUST have an Enermax controller to use this fan. The $5 fan is an "expansion unit" for their controller, not a standalone item.

ANOTHER WARNING: Despite the fact that there is a limit of 3 rebates per product line, you can only select a quantity of one on the rebate site for each submission. You will have to submit a separate rebate (and envelope) for each one you buy.

Both the buy limit and the rebate limit are 3. "Limit three rebate cards per product line per person, address, and household"

Fan requires a FOUR pin 12v RGB header on your motherboard for system controlled lighting. (Not a 3 pin 5v header)

Reviews are very far and few between, but seem to be pretty mixed. The primary complaints are noise related, but appear to be bad units rather than the normal operating of the fans overall.

Airflow seems pretty standard for a 140mm fan and noise isn't way out of the ballpark of normal, assuming the stats on the description are actually accurate.

Additional Deals:

2x 140mm fans with controller (Support for 8 fans + 2 RGB Devices): $25 after $15 MIR. [frys.com] Essentially, $15 for the controller and $5 each for 2 fans.
6x 120mm fans with controller (Support for 8 fans + 2 RGB Devices): $33 After $20 MIR. [frys.com] (This is a different [rebateaccess.com]rebate number than the other ones and has a limit of 9, but suffers from the same one per rebate form issue.)

This is a 140mm fan, so you'll need to be sure that you have space for a 140mm fan.

Most cases are standard with 80mm and 120mm, but many will support 140mm in place of them. Do you know what case you have? I can do a quick search for compatibility.

Typically these things go live sometime around 2:30 AM Pacific.

Hmm is this the 6 pin rgb fan header like the previous darkFlash deal?

These would NOT be compatible with that unit. I'm not sure if the pinout is the same on the 6pin connectors, but those are 5v addressable RGB and these are 12v.

Nope, I have both fans and controllers, and they don't fit each other even though they are both 6 pin.

this is a great deal for 6 fans with a controller and RGB sync capability. I've submitted several Enermax rebates in the past year and have gotten them all to go through with no issues.

If I don't need system controlled lighting can these be run off a 12v non-rgb header?

You can run these on 12v RGB header on your motherboard
