No sound at all, but the RGB is weak and has dead spots. Great fans for this price because there is no sound from them and they are keeping the computer cool temps, but because 2 of the 5 lost color in parts I am sad.
CP3 Case Fans 120mm 3-Pin Fixed Color High-Performance PC Fans Low Noise LED Case Fan with Hydraulic Bearing for Gaming Computer Case (3 Pack)
The 120 mm LED fans are packaged in a cardboard retail box with pictures and writing on the outside giving the statistics of the product. Opening the box, right on top, you'll find three baggies of mounting screws, The three fans, and an information manual sheet tuck down one side. Looking at the fans, the frame feels pretty stiff and sturdy, and I don't think they'll be any flex to these at all. The mounting point/ears at the four corners have a little bit of foam rubber attached to them, which will help against any rattling or vibration. The fan blades themselves are milky white in color, including the center hub. The fan blades are smooth on one side, but have little scooped ridges on the inside which I am presuming will help pump the air once the fan is engaged. The quick installation guide sheet is in multiple languages and basically tells you how to plug them in. Plugging in one fan to test, the LEDs which are mounted in the center near the motor glow quite brightly, and give you a graduated RGB effect. The LEDs are static and don't move or change color. They're pretty bright, so they should show well when mounted in a computer case. The airflow is pretty good, considering how quiet the fans are.
Kind of have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, the fans are very quiet, and if you are seeking fans that are very quiet, then these are definitely it. On the other hand, the airflow does not quite match that of some other fans that I have that are much noisier. So I guess there is a tradeoff. Anything that moves a ton of air is probably going to produce a lot of noise. That's just physics. And yes, I know that on some motherboards you can vary the voltage to increase/decrease the speed of the fan. Increasing the speed of course will increase the noise level. Fan design also contributes to noise, not only raw RPM, if you want to just look at RPM's. (fan design meaning not only the shape and material of the fan, but also the inner parts that hold and spin the fan). Colors are pretty much fixed. Each fan comes with a 4 large molar power connector are a small 3 pin connector for convenience. When I connected to the 3 pin, not all the led lights lighted up. There are vibration pads attached to each fant to reduce noise I suspect. This fan also does generate a little bit of heat especially if you spin it high rpm. So using it as an internal fan without an outlet does not make any sense if you want to use it that way.
These CP3 120mm Computer Fan 3-Pin Fixed Color Low Noise led case Fan High Performance PC Fans are absolutely rainbow puke in the worst way possible. The colors are fixed, like the description says, so you will have green, red, white, purple and blue LEDs in your case 100% of the time. They are the same batwing design as older Enermax fans from a decade ago, and they move a ton of air at reasonably low volume. I don't think they'll have a ton of static pressure for radiators, but if you're looking for a budget case fan option that will work and you absolutely want LEDs, these might be just what you're looking for.
These seem like great fans, but another reviewer pointed out that the specs on the box are different than the product page - these no name companies really need to fix those supply issues. It just goes to show that sometimes you aren't buying a specific product, but whatever that seller has in stock.
Anyway, in this case the fans seem great, most importantly because they don't seem very loud. Again, like that other very thorough review pointed out, they'll last a few years, so probably can be thrown out along with your computer after you've given the whole setup a good life.
If you're looking to add color into your case and don't care that these fans don't rotate or move around then this might be a good option for you. The airflow is really good and for the most part the fans run pretty quiet so it's not to disturbing in the background. The fans connect into the mobo and like I mentioned those colors don't change around. What you see is what you get. So if you're trying to get RGB and have it change this would not be the option for you.
They're definitely cheap fans. I don't see any speed control or any color control. They light up with all three colors and you can't change that. The plastic is somewhat thin and while fluid bearings are supposed to be fancy, I can't image they're using anything expensive. They're good for cheap fans as long as you don't mind bring leds you can't control.
The fans on my pc were about had it so i grabbed these to try out. These fans are replacing some ten year old ones. The old ones are making noise and need replaced. These fans are working just fine and were easy to change out. Much more quieter and me happy'
