Mini cooling fan, useful in a small case. – PC Chassis Cooling Fan (6cm) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Easy to install, brasses a lot of air for it's size.
Extremely low priced.
Cons:
The fan comes without screws and requires screws that are about 1cm long.
Mine was noisy, it made a quiet but very high pitched sound so I had to remove it because it was giving me a headache.
Other:
I got this fan to cool down my case, the hard drive was going into dangerous temperatures.

The fan worked well, it did it make a noise but the truth is that in terms of cooling it wasn't really enough: too much was crammed into my prebuilt computer's little case. The fan moved a good volume of air but that air wasn't going anywhere useful because of the way the drives were all stacked.
In the end I bought a new, much bigger case withfans at the front and the back and spaced out the components inside the box so that the air could actually flow.
Bottomline:
Potent case ventilator but if there is not enough space for the air it blows to flow around your computer components, it will not be very useful.
