Indeed... I had kaze maru but ditch them for slip-streams and very happy with that decision...
I'll check my local shop for 2 of those... ;)

... think it'll look into some reviews. See if it's actually worth purchasing over my current 140mm fan.

That 500rpm version would go great on side panel. although I've never used nor liked side fan. But with SLI/CrossFire/Fermi under there, should help.

Oh these are 120mm holes, that's why they looked so funky (quite good). So then they would fit everywhere in my case. Have to remember these if some fan brakes.

thanks for that.

knowing me i'd just go for several 500RPM fans - i'm a silent user. (and the case i'm looking at can take several of them, so the combined airflow is what matters)

If their anything like the normal slip streams then eventually they will fail or make your room smell like burning plastic when their at 12v. The high speed models are loud and power hungry. I also had the kaze maru 140mm fans which were also loud and made a distinctive motor noise. The low/mid speed fans are a better option but for only those that want cheap noisy fans.


I have a stack of 6 scythe fans which were replaced with all Noiseblocker/Triebwerk(made by Noiseblocker) fans.

im replacing the kaze maru 2 in my door with the noctua version and replacing the original kaze maru 1900rpm that I have for my top exhaust fan with the noiseblocker pk-3. Ive learned alot about fans over the past month or so and learned its worth to spend the extra cash for the better quality fans. Im still amazed by my gentletyphoon ap-15's. they were worth every penny I spent on them. still want some san aces for my heatsink even if they are overkill.

My dad just filled his with the 800 rpm models. Almost dead silent, and so many fit in there, airflow is still plenty.

I hope they did some quality control fixes or changed the bearing design. Both me and a friend got two different speeds of slip stream fans and both bubbled up under the sticker, leaked greasy shit and ceased up. Could barely even spin them by hand.

I have 2 PK-3's as my intake fans and they are quiet loud at 12v. I would check out the PK-2 if you don't have a fan controller.

I hope they did some quality control fixes or changed the bearing design. Both me and a friend got two different speeds of slip stream fans and both bubbled up under the sticker, leaked greasy shit and ceased up. Could barely even spin them by hand.
The 1 I had on my exhaust fan had this melted sticker but it still ran.

With the really small motor assembly I wouldnt expect much from them. Also their MTBF is pretty poor(in real life)

I agree. Their fan quality often slips. When I bought 10 fans (120mm) at once, two turned out to be defective, and one turned out to malfunction (but still works).
