SilenX 80mm Case Fans ReviewFormer staff writer -
The trend with PC cooling has changed a lot in the last year. Not long ago people thought to get good cooling you need loud fans with monstrous CFM ratings. With a new evolution of very efficient heat sinks, that�s no longer the case - you can have your cooling and overclock too. The silent PC trend is among us now and keeps getting stronger with companies like SilenX. They offer a one-stop shop for all your silent and low noise parts including heat sinks, PSU�s, hard drive coolers, and case fans. Today we will be taking a close look at their 80mm case fans, which are rated at an astounding 14 dBA.
|Dimension:||80 x 80 x 25mm|

SilenX graciously sent five of their 80mm fans for review. As you can see from the picture above, SilenX packages their fans in a plastic bag. No need for fancy retail box art with marketing hype - the fans are the selling point. Each package contains one 80mm fan, one 3-to-4 pin Molex connector, gold screws, and silicon vibration isolation mounts.
