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

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
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.
