    From a glance, FX is the high RPM type, larger blades, seems to have the highest static pressure and largest airflow. FZ seems to be the basic type, midrange airflow and very low static pressure. FN is the inbetweener of the FX and FZ, and the FS is primarily for silence.

    FX - static pressure, loud, good airflow
    FZ - cheap fan
    FN - midrange airflow fan
    FS - silent fan

    EDIT: Notably I did used to own 2 NZXT FN 200RB's, and they're actually very good, and reasonably quiet. Bitfenix Spectre 200's were way better in terms of dB's though.
     
    Chaitanya says thanks.
