    Fan anti-vibration sleeves are a key ingredient of silent PCs. Several high-end PC cases come preinstalled with these, or they're available in the market for reasonably cheap, as they are usually just molded silicone or rubber. Sharkoon went a step forward and introduced magnets-mounted vibration dampening with the Anti Vibe Magnetic fan frames. Each of these rubber frames have eight magnets enclosed (two in each corner), that help the fan to stick to the metal case frame, without screws. This dampens vibrations further, as they are not transferred between the fan and the case through screws or bolts. Sharkoon however, does not recommend using these frames near hard-drives as the magnets could interfere with their normal operation, or even damage them. Available in 80 mm and 120 mm sizes, the frames are priced at 4.99 and 5.99 Euro respectively.

    pitted blades more more air with less noise, like a golf ball.

    in some situations, you could use one of these for a stock cpu fan and heatsink. it will bring up off of the heatsink further, causing more air to get to the center.

    €5 for an overgrown rubber band? wtf?
    This isn't going to work, it's just a big piece of rubber you stick your fan it, the screws are still going through the chassis and as such will cause vibrations anyhow... what a load of crap :shadedshu

    You don't need screws, though you're right 5€ is much.

    It will help heaps in stoping vibration transfer.that alone will reduce noise.

    Sorry, I have a rule about keeping magnets inside my computer around sensitive electronics.

    I love how they only bring up HDD when magnets can interfere with the normal operations of transistors period. Considering most CPU's now a day have millions of transistors, a magnet near it would be bad as well. I will not even started on other potential issues.

    Good idea and may be great product, but not for me.

    Hey it may seem like a lot, but they are the ones making them like that so, what the hell. $4.99 and $5.99 ain't a bad price. I'd like to see bigger sizes though, for 140 mm , etc.

    Looks like it can be substituted for a rad box as well
