Great solution for Home/lab racked AMD server
Great product and fair price for a hard to find local PWM part. Not many local box stores carry PWM fans in this size and certainly not at a fair price. This are quiet and perform well. They run 24/7 in home lab AMD racked server and I have yet to find a problem.
Specifics.. I have an AMD super-micro G34 racked board at home. This is my lab/test server and the 3 F8 fans ran 100% /100% of the time. I replaced them with these PWM fans (all fan connections on my board are PWM BTW). Stays just as cool and 1/20th the noise. As the board works hard the fans increase... Perfect for my setup.
FYI Suggestion for others --> If you do not have PWM fan connectors on your board buy a splitter and run them from the CPU PWM in your system. As the CPU ramps all your fans will too. There are products here on Amazon just for this purpose..
Would buy again from seller and manufacture.

Excellent, Quiet fans.
By Alec Fentum
I bought 2 of these to go in my mini-ITX case (Thermaltake Core v1). Installation was easy and quick, and after setting fan speed in the bios performance has been flawless so far. Very quiet. They look great too, only thing I would like is for the wires to be sleeved. Will probably sleeve them myself later on. For the price, don't hesitate to go with the F8s!

9 Blades - Fluid Bearing - Whisper-Quiet !
By Rust Never Sleeps
The ARCTIC F9 (Rev.2) was an easy install, and the new-type fluid bearing is quieter than the ball-bearing model it replaces.
The 9-blade fan moves a plenty of air (43 CFM) through the case, and it keeps the case temps a lot cooler than the OEM 7-blade fan.
4-pin connector on 16-inch wire allows connection to either 3 or 4-pin headers.
Great upgrade for an older computer -- highly recommended.
