The power consumption is 0.1 amps, the rated voltage is 12 Volts. The white propeller and black frame case fan rotates in a rugged metal bearing and weighs 162 grams.

The fan can either be connected to the motherboard or power supply, included in shipping are a 3pin/4pin adapter cable and a separate cable to monitor the number of revolutions. Additionally, Sharkoon includes four fan screws and rubber bolts for the acoustic decoupling of the housing. The 3pin connector cable is protected by a rubberized hose.

There seems to be a typo in this phrase: shouldn't it be 140mm?

I've noticed all 'silent' fans have this white and black look to them..

800 rpm? You'd really have to be an absolute silence fanatic to count on a rig filled with these being remotely cool, I would imagine things being a little warm. Quiet to be sure, just hot. Or are these meant for the htpc?

with proper fan blade design and reasonably low impedance of fin arrays in the heatsink, 800rpm is more than enough. At least for components running at stock clocks

I'm using 800rpm Noiseblocker in my modified PSU. Works pretty well. Super silent.

with a few of them and the airflow they move, should be fine. Im interested in the modular cable system though. how does that work?

My system only uses 500rpm fans, 4 of them.
Graphiccard, CPU and 2 case fans.
The only 800rpm fan I have is in the Zalman PSU which never spins up faster.

And harddrives are enclosed into Scythe Quiet Drives. Silence is golden.

Always wanted to try Sharkoon, they're so hard to find in the states at a decent price. Any idea what type of bearing it's using?

Last I checked there's a three-pin male connector located directly on the chassis of the fan and they give you the option of cables that have different resistor.

Yea, always wanted a Sharkoon as well, bit-tech rated them as highly as the Scythe GTs, which are awesome fans.

Ball or sleeve ?, As i will not touch a sleeve based fan.. I'd get one if it was around 2kRPM as they would very nicely on the MK-13.

"fan rotates in a rugged metal bearing" so ball.

I like sleeve, ball bearings almost always make some kind of whine or high pitch that I don't like. Fluid bearing is good though.

kinda have to agree with the low RPM thing, even my Noctua S12 spins at 1200rpm n moves such a tiny amount of air :(

If that was a 220mm or 240mm @800RPM that would be understandable. but 800RPM even with longer fins it makes me feel uncomfortable
