WOW I am definitely impressed
May 19, 2018
I have 2 Vega 64 cards in crossfire and was using a single 140MM case fan to pull hot air away from the GPU(s). Vega cards produce a ton of heat and that single fan did not have the performance envelope to keep up. I started getting random shutdowns. I was looking for fans that would fit my needs and was going to get the Silverstone Air penetrator series but they were only 3 pin. I continued my search and saw these for $13.99 and decided to get 2. The only reason I did that was because I had used some Arctic thermal paste and rather enjoyed it. One of my GPU(s) has 2, 4 pin fan headers; one of which is conveniently located where the old crossfire connectors used to be.
The fans are physically weaker in construction than the Noctua fans and weight feels a little in adequate again compared to Noctua.
In terms of performance they are just as quiet as my Noctua Redux 140MM and move more air. With my previous fan I would see my GPU jump to 77 degrees or higher in the AMD Setting Overlay and then shut down. Now I consistently see the mid 60s as my highest temp. They are whisper quiet as PWM fans and they keep my GPU(S) fans from spinning up too high making the experience that much more enjoyable. I will probably be getting a few more of these for other uses.
The pics show the fans while they are on, where they sit in relation to the GPu(s) and what happens when not gaming.
