    Default BitFenix Fans and some impressions (non professional review)

    Hi guys, finally my fans from BitFenix Shinobi XL Giveaway arrived and as promised I will do short review.

    Noise (dB-A) <20
    Air Pressure (mmH2O) 0.62


    Packaging is outstanding, lots of information on back side and good presentation of fans, now - accessories

    As you probably noticed, Pro series have rubber absorb-it connections for installing and 3pin to molex connection cable in packaging, Led series have Led switch cable.
    Lets go for details of the fans..



    Nice looking fans form BitFenix
    But I am man that want little more then good looking fan -I decide test them - how
    And I decide go very simple way ..

    Spectre Pro All Black 120mm


    Spectre Pro LED Red 120mm


    Spectre LED Red 120mm


    And then I removed stock CM back fan and tested is well


    For my surprise - that was biggest performer...
    But lets back to BitFenix
    First - all this fans do not have any RPM control. My case have integrated fan control module and all this fans was working only on highest settings 4 and 5 from 5 in total. That little disappointment. All systems that I previously build I tested with various fans and always was getting some movement on lowest voltages, but BitFenix dont...
    They are very silent have astonishing look and great performers.
    I would recommend them for all that looking superior fans for case cooling.

    Thanks.

    So, what's wrong with that? You wear a dress and get busy with an actual blow up doll. I'm not judging you so don't judge me. Some liberal you turned out to be. LOL.

    Sam, you forgot to add Jim's wig, lipstick, the rest of his make up, pantyhose, and high heels. I think I saw his add on Criags List listed under Cheap Date

    Congrats again on your win Doomas. I replaced the 120mm rear fan on the Shinobi XL with a Spectre Pro Black 140mm, and it works great. Moves a lot of air and is very quiet.
