Not too quiet but not too loud – PC Chassis Cooling Fan (8cm) Reviews

They move a lot of air and I find them suitable for computer use. I have them set on 7 volts instead of the 12 atm due to noise issues. I was hoping to use it as a CPU fan but they cool slightly worse than the very loud Cooler Master fan than I'm using.
They're not that quiet to be honest although they're not horribly loud either. The edges of the blades are very rough also making them seem a bit cheaply made. I may sand them down with some sand paper or something. Might make them less noisy too.
I bought 3 of these for a computer and ended up using only one. They do work much better than the case fans I was using though and since the bearings were gone on one of them, the new fan sounds far quieter.
I'm not disappointed with my purchase but I'm not overwhelmed with joy at it either. More of a *shrug*, I got what I paid for I guess, feeling.
