ARCTIC F12-120 mm Standard Case Fan 120 mm - F-Series
- Innovative DESIGN enables quiet and efficient ventilation: The innovative design of the fan blades improves the air flow and facilitates a highly efficient ventilation. The impeller was designed with a focus on minimizing the noise level yet delivering the desired airflow and pressure.
- Two way installation: blow warm air out of the case. Draw cool air into your case.
- Long service life: The fluid Dynamic Bearing comes with an oil capsule that avoids lubricant leakage. Thus this bearing is as quiet as a sleeve bearing but comes with a significantly higher service life.
- 1, 350 RPM @ 12 V/ Max. Airflow 53 CFM (126 M³/h).
- Set the fan speed by using a different voltage (5-12V)

FYI if your unfamiliar with PST it essentially allows you to hook up multiple fans to a single header because each fan has a small pig tail from the main connector to hook another fan into. You can hook up to 5 fans from a single header. This is very nice for motherboards that have too few fan headers. I ended up having 4 of these fans use the PST function so all front case fans were in sync - this is very nice. Cable length is generous and should be more than sufficient for a full ATX case. I would absolutely recommend these. I would defenetly, without a doubt buy them again.
Another question that was answered for myself after using these was the static air pressure. They blow very well and move a lot of air. I have two of these mounted on my radiator for a closed loop water cooler I use (Corsair H100i). They don't have quite the static pressure of the Corsair HS series fans, but the system is not over clocked and I max out around 48c on the CPU with the ARCTIC F12's still. The Corsair are loud - like stupid loud you can hear them from another room when they are at full speed. The F12's at full throttle are magnitudes quieter (albet less static pressure) but still more than sufficient. They look cool too! No stupid LED's no gimmicks. Plastic is the nice thick type, I've broken blades in the past from all my tinkering and accidental bumping. I think the added couple blades defently help with noise and air flow. These are PERFECT for the front of a computer case or rear exhaust 120mm case port. They are also dual bearing fans. Now sleeve bearings are generally quieter (they don't last as long), these bearing fans are on par with how quiet the sleeve bearings are.
Update: I got a replacement set of fans and they are exactly the same: subpar compared to previous fans of the same make and model. I uploaded a new video showing how the RPM and torque are lower on the same pin compared to an older version of the fan, even with only 2 fans on the same header. I normally have two of the same older model Arctic fans as well as two other fans running on the CPU header with no problem; the newer fans are just not as good.
After contacting ARCTIC support they sent me replacement fans without any hassle. I would not hesitate to buy these again based on product support.
Noticed a distinct wobble one day on my PC case and took a side off..sure enough it was one of the fans that had a blade snap off causing the wobble. Emailed Artic stated my issue attached my Amazon invoice and they sent a replacement ...no fuss.. no muss.
Excellent company and customer support.
The fan failure to me was just one of those things that happens with things from time to time in all walks of life no matter the product. Great customer service doesn't seem to happen as much...they stand behind their product.
1. The fans are very quiet for how inexpensive they are. Sound becomes more noticeable when gaming (~1100RPM) but are silent when web browsing (~700RPM).
2. Included PWM PST connecting cord allowed me to link up to four of these to one fan spot on my MOBO.
3. Longer cord allows connection to reach more distant fans.
4. Reduced PC temperatures by a few degrees celcius (During PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Ultra settings):
GPU (Nvidia GTX 770 4gb): 76c max (Previously 79c)
CPU (Watercooled i7 4770k): 58c max (Previously 61c)
Case Temp: 42c max (Previously 44c)
5. With PWM enabled fan speeds never exceed 80%, remaining relatively quiet. Fans use considerably less power while not gaming and while idle, this will lead to reduced power consumption.
1. Some wire management is required for numerous fans
I honestly have nothing to complain about. The fan appears to be durable and of good quality while remaining a good buy for the price! Installation is simple.
