Price: $11.95


Introduction
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.

    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.
