Are these good for pulling air through a filter? Or would air flow fans work better? Thanks

These Arctics are the only fans I buy, and you can get the 5 pack for around this price pretty regularly.The 140mm's are much nicer to have if your case fits them, but the 120s are still great.
I 2n'd this, and add i like the F series over the P

I bought these from Amazon during the last deal. Was told order wouldn't ship for a few weeks. Then after a couple of weeks, got email saying they shipped. Then got email saying package may have been lost. Still trying get my refund.

Quote from JMBauer74 :
This is complete BS. The Arctic P12s are rated at .3 Sones, which converts to 22.5 dB(A). The Noctua Premium Quiet [amazon.com] max out at 17.8 dB(A) If your Noctua fans are running louder, you most likely didn't install them correctly. .3 sones is about average for "quiet" case fans. Even brands like Antec have "quiet" fans that make less noise than these. Nothing wrong with these fans, but you're overselling them.
If we're talking about the Noctua A12x25, yes it's a quieter fan overall, but not by a great deal in several noise comparisons that have been done.

This 5 pack costs about the same a single A12x25 though, so the choice is pretty easy for most people, IMO.

I've got 4 of a 5-pack in an NR200P and I've been looking to get another so I can replace my rad fans with these.. always tempted when these $31 shipped deals pop up - I paid ~$42 shipped for mine, no regrets. Run them around 580 RPM idle and 1100 RPM for sustained loads, keeps my 5900X & 3080 FE at good temps while still nice and quiet.

Quote from spiralbloo :
Good fans, but mine other others' have a flaw around 1000rpm. As the fan ramps up or slows down, or otherwise settles around 1000rpm, it has an odd humming noise. It's fine if you lock at high/low speeds, but it defeats the point of PWM.

Example from YT: https://youtu.be/QwftVMGPOiI?t=363
Can't you adjust your fan curve to avoid that rpm? Make a quick jump from below to above.

Thoughts on using these outside of a computer application? I want to seal up my solar setup and have two fans blowing cool air in and venting battery gases out.

Why would anyone want these when you can get the Corsair RGB fans for $30-40 each? /s (but seriously I bought six of those ML120 RGB fans)

You're right. It's just that the fans are otherwise so good. ~1000rpm would be ideal airflow/noise at load, if not for the added hum.

It's not resonance, either. They don't vibrate my case, yet you can hear the hum at mid speed whether they're mounted or not.

In theory maybe. In practice, I've found different fans have different rpm where they whine, and it's a decent size range. Like 850-1150 rpm. To add to the complexity, on my board the fan curve doesn't just "jump" from one rpm to the next. It still ramps between the two settings. Even if you only put a degree or two celcius between the fan curve points, it still ends up sitting in the whine rpm range sometimes. And as others have said, 1000 rpm is right in the sweet spot for this fan unfortunately. Jumping to 1250 rpm reduces whine but it starts getting noisy.

Not a deal breaker but definitely not as easy to avoid as it sounds in theory. For the price these are great but don't fool yourself to think they're 95% of the noctua - they're not. If you have the $$ I'd still go noctua in a hot minute.

I've bought this 5 pack and they are very nice fans. I was just on their website and noticed they are now offering an ARGB P12. Maybe they are clearing out stock for these to site in their warehouses.

However, they do not list the max dB, they only have some type of nonsense about 0dB. Strange, they have made very capable, while remaining quiet fans, but no dB specs.

Anything obstructed like filters or mesh you want high static pressure fans, which the p series are. You only want high airflow for things like the case rear where it has minimal flow obstruction.
