Conclusion:

In closing, Deepcool's UF120 case fan has a nice set of features, and the included cable adapters make this fan the most versatile around. Included is a 4 pin PWM to 4 pin Pass-Thru Molex connector cable, a 4 pin PWM Y cable, and a 4 pin PWM to 4 pin Molex 7V adapter cable. The TPE coating and rubber mounting pins make for an ultra quiet fan with a maximum noise level of only 27.8dBA. The pins help reduce vibrations compared to the conventional mounting hardware as the fan spins at the rated speed of 1500rpm. They also make the installation of this fan completely tool-free. Additionally, the sleeved power cable makes managing those pesky wires a breeze and will provide a very clean look for your case. The UF120 comes equipped with a 4 pin PWM plug so you can conveniently control the UF120's speed either through the motherboard's PWM fan plugs or via an aftermarket fan controller. Performance-wise, the UF120 did well against the comparison fan and only gave up a couple degrees Celsius during testing of the chipset. I would like to see the addition of some LEDs on the fan, but this exclusion is not a deal breaker for me. They would just make the UF120 more appealing to those of us who like to add a little color to our cases. The UF120 is not a fan you will find in the bargain hunters section of your local computer store. With a price set at just a little over $21.00 it falls roughly in the middle of the Kingwin Duro Bearing series at $17.95 and the Noctua’s NF-F12 at $24.95. At this price point, if you factor in the life expectancy and performance of the UF120, you simply can not go wrong. In short, Deepcool accomplished what it has set out to do with the UF120: to provide the end user with an affordable, easy to install, and ultra quiet product that also happens to perform extremely well.

 

Pros:

  • TPE covering for reducing vibrations
  • Ultra quiet
  • Tool-free installation
  • Sleeved cable
  • PWM capable

 

Cons:

  • No LED lighting
  • Installation may be hindered in tight spaces
