    In relation to all Noctua fans used, as usual extremely efficient and quiet. They are placed in the best possible way, I have made sure to get positive airflow by always keeping the GPU fans at higher speeds than those placed in the case.

    Noctua fans are the best. You can't hear a sound up to about ~1400rpm even if you stick your ear into the blades trying to hear them, which I've done. This fan has run nearly nonstop for 6 years and it's still perfect.

    The Noctua NH-U12DXi4 comes with one, added another for push/pull. Still very quiet.

    Great performance with little noise. My GPU dropped over 15 degrees Celsius at full load thanks to this fan while using the node 202 case.

    Gold standard for silent and effective case fans. Once you get past the ugly colors you will fall in love with these fans. I got them to replace the stock fans on my H100i, but will probably get a few more to replace all of my case fans.

    Amazing fans, extremely quiet, can't even tell that they are running

    Simply the best (especially when you can't really see them) and you want a ton of airflow without much noise.

    I can't say anything bad about these fans except maybe the colors, although this isn't an issue in my case and I kind of like the colors. They perform great and are providing sufficient airflow to keep my GPU cool in a Node 202 case. I am using them as static pressure fans in order to push air through the tight space in my setup. There are just a few mm of clearance between the fans and the GPU. I am definitely maintaining positive pressure as the vents on the case have nice warm air blowing out of them.
