The Shark fans install super easy with the provided rubber mounts, and has no problems or snags of any kind in doing so. The illumination of these fans might be the best I've seen, they really do look awesome! I'm hoping they might add a UV-LED model in the near future as well!
We ran these out of the case on our new Aerocool F6XT fan controller to get these fans away from the case to isolate their acoustics and airflow production. The results? Simply amazing...
These fans produced as much airflow as any fan I've seen or used to date, including Antec or Coolermaster's many-bladed fans. The best part after that? They are WHISPER QUIET (sorry to break their silence, but it had to be made clear). Seriously, they were quiet enough that when I'd put my ear up to the fan itself, I could hear the electric motor running! The bearings used in these also seem to minimize the noise the fan itself makes, and these aspects were during testing on the highest voltage setting on the controller. When the voltage was reduced, the fan was what I'd basically call "clinically silent," yet was still able to move plenty of air! We ran the 140mm fans alongside as well, and they do just as well, moving tons of air at whisper quiet decibel levels! We are working on getting some equipment to measure airflow and decibel-levels, but you can take our word with no level of uncertainty that these are QUIET.
Like we said before, case fans aren't generally something to get excited about, but these Shark fans have put an end to that!
