    Best Fan I Own

    This fan moves a TON of air. You can really tell the difference from any other fan just how much air it moves and also how directional it is. I HIGHLY recommend this fan to anybody! The MIR also came back! Read more

    Avoid This Fan

    Makes squeaking and clicking noises within 1 hour of installation on the high speed 12v line. The bad noises are reduced by switching to the 7v speed reduction cable, but it is still audible. Read more

    5 out of 5 eggs Great fans possibly the underdog

    Pros: Great fans
    work really well as intake with screen mesh, where other fans fail bad

    Cons: wish these had the rubber sides like the Noctua's then these would be even better!

    Bottom Line: I have had a few cases with these fans 3x as intakes for years now, they do great when using a screen mesh to filter they outperform even Noctua older models NF-A14 FLX, not the PWM AAO Frame NF-A14 industrial those are amazing, but these are 1/3 of the price less then those industrial ones.

    5 out of 5 eggs Directed air flow works very well

    Pros: So I picked up a Silverstone case off Craigslist at a steal of a deal for my micro ATX build and it included one of these Air Penetrator fans in the front of the case connected to a built in 2 phase fan controller as an intake(the one in this case happens to be a 180mm AP fan). Let me tell you this fan moves air, and it moves it in an a "tunnel of air" that you can easily feel (as one reviewer put it, "6 feet away"). That reviewer wasn't exaggerating one bit. The fella I purchased the case from owned it for two years in a smoke free environment and this fan is still working at probably close to factory quality. Impressive to say the least. The case I picked up is the Silverstone TJ08B-E

    Cons: I guess a little noise, but that's to be expected with fans. Fans make noise and no matter the gimmicks companys keep coming up with, fans make noise. If noise is your issue, go water cooled in a sound dampened case. Radiators require fans so..... there's no way around it in the long run. Also, the Air Penetrator series most certainly couldn't be the best choice for rads, but they also most certainly couldn't be the worst either.

    Pros: Square frame - so many 140mm fans have a round frame that can prevent them from clipping into a fan holder, like the one on the front of a Fractal R4. This one slides right in.

    DAT AIRFLOW - Works as advertised. It's like a tiny little tunnel of air, instead of just turbulent blah-whatever air that undirected fans put out.

    Reasonably quiet at 5V and 7V
    Price is reasonable: could be about $5 cheaper, but hey

    Cons: Gets loud at the highest 12V setting

    5 out of 5 eggs Fantastic fan!

    Pros: Very quiet, especially if you do not have anything obstructing the intake. I have a blank hole cut out for it, no filters or mesh, and while it's not silent it's the quietest fan in my system.
    The cable sleeving is good, while I would have preferred that it went up to the actual motor hub it's not a big issue. The colors of the wire are not visible through the sleeve.
    The directed airflow design works exactly as advertised, check out Silverstone's video demonstration of it for a better idea.

    Cons: Fairly weak static pressure, though that's an issue most 140x25mm fans have at the moment. I personally would not use these on a rad, I would go with very high static pressure 120mm fans and a 140mm adapter. That being said, these are not really designed for rad use, they are designed to be intakes on your case.

    5 out of 5 eggs Best Fan I Own

    Pros: This fan moves a TON of air. You can really tell the difference from any other fan just how much air it moves and also how directional it is. I HIGHLY recommend this fan to anybody! The MIR also came back!

    Cons: To loud for me at full RPM. Don't like the RPM getting any higher than 1250 for this fan in-particular. At 1250 RPM I can't hear it. Its nice to have the head room though if you really want to max out the performance of your system and fan.

    Bottom Line: MIR took about a month and a half. Not bad really. I will defiantly be fitting my system out with these if I can.

    5 out of 5 eggs the fan for all Rad & Heatsink

    Pros: really the best fan for Radiators. no dead or weak spots on coolings fins on Rads or Heatsinks. so get that maximum cooling. highly recommended for 20+ FPI (Fins Per Inch) on rads like the hwlabs BlackIce GTX. and its not much noisy at all at1500rpm @ 12v. great Static Pressure for the rad and heatsink. good air flow.

    Cons: turn the fan up side down makes humming noise like something isnt right in the motor must be just the one fan i got to test out on my rad like the other fans i'm trying out

    Bottom Line: all around really good fan where you want the air the Most

    5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Product!!!

    Pros: Excellent airflow and easy to set-up. Has a nice blue tint to the fan blades. Cheap price. :)

    Cons: none

    Bottom Line: Purchased this fan to replace PSU fan that began clicking and making this noise periodically. I replaced with the ap141 and now it works silently and effectively. All I had to do was a tiny wire mod to join a 3 pin to 2 pin in order for fan to work in my older PSU. Excellent product!

    5 out of 5 eggs Passive cpu cooling?!

    Pros: Lowered my cpu temps several degrees. No need for fan grill.

    Cons: No leds to make my case glow (though im looking into uv lights)

    Bottom Line: I am using dual xeons and its hard to find (i know noctua has one) active coolers when the processors are that close together. So I got a Lian Li pc-x500 case that has no drive bays in front of the motherboard to help airlow. The fans that Lian Li includes are pretty and quiet but don't put out much air. The Air Penetrator isn't the highest CPM fan but it does a great job at channeling all that air directly where I need it.

    5 out of 5 eggs Great for Intended Applications

    Pros: Very effectively tunnels air to components. Also very quiet operation for a 1500 RPM case fan, which is in contrast to what "starkline" observed in a separate review, so it's possible that "starkline" received a defective fan. This fan is designed more specifically for case intakes and areas that require high static airflow, such as high-density finned CPU coolers, hard drive cages, etc. If you are looking to exhaust air from your case, then you may be better served by a standard, higher CFM fan, which diffuses the air stream in a much wider pattern. In all, however, the Silverstone AP141 (as well as its 120mm brother, the Silverstone AP121) is an excellent consumer-based fan that is very well-suited for its designed purpose. Highly recommended in this regard.

    Cons: None that I've found.

    Bottom Line: Dropped case and CPU temperatures across the board in all three of my company's most recent computer builds. Have been running four AP121's in conjunction with three NB-Multiframe M12-S3 fans (the NB’s used as exhausts) in a fourth build from several months ago, and no fan failures or unusual fan noise in that machine, which runs hard for an average of 14-16 hours per day.
