Conclusion

The Evercool Rifling Fan RF-8 did respectably in testing, performing quieter than the case fans and performing as well as a fan with both a higher CFM and noise rating and in the load testing. The bearing is improved over sleeve bearing and has the second highest lifespan of Evercool's fans with 40,000 hours. The shape can be awkward, but if users want more performance out of a 80mm mount then this fan provides a solution. The fan performed well, but it does have some quirks. The packaging did have grammatical problems and typos, and the fan cable sleeving came disjoined from the heat shrink. The paint chips easily as well, but paint on plastic is always hit and miss. Overall, this fan got the job done and seemed to do it well.

 

Pros:

  • Quiet operation
  • Decent lifespan
  • Sleeved cable
  • Decent performance
  • Unique design

Cons:

  • Basic package with typos
  • Paint chips off easily
