My System Specs

Default What do you think about this fan...

IM looking for some fan for more cooling in my case and my CPU. (120MM & 140MM)

I just saw the video about the Silverstone Air Penetrator, and i would like to know your impression and experience with this fan. Good/bad/silence/Waste of money ?!

I made a post/feedback after I got mine a while back: here.

Be warned though, after using them for 2 months I've found that they're only good for a few specific applications. Meaning they're only good if you can make use of a focused column of airflow.

EDIT: to elaborate, they make GREAT side/bottom case fans and heatsink fans. (with the sole exception of the Prolimatech Meghalems, due to HSF design) They don't give any particular benefit to exhaust and front intake applications.
