SilenX Effizio 80mm and 140mm Fan ReviewBluePanda - September 19, 2011

The 80mm on the other hand really shocked me. The case, which is small and cramped being a home theater PC really improved with a simple swap of the fan. The fan was no louder than the 80mm fan already in there and the temperatures dropped across every aspect of testing. Everything was an improvement, not just a mere 1 degree change here and there, but a change in 5 degrees over the GPU temperatures alone. Yes, the idle temperatures did increase, but I expected that with a self-controlled throttling fan (not much of a change either). For simply replacing a single fan I am actually impressed. I think I might get another one for myself after this. A quiet fan with good air flow, can’t really ask for more.
