Acousti AcoustiFan: DustPROOF 80mm fan
AcoustiFan™ DustPROOF - Premium Quality Quiet 80mm Multi-Purpose Cooling Fan
The fan motor for the DustPROOF range of virtually silent fans is extremely quiet. The AcoustiFan™ DustPROOF series use the highest quality double-ball bearings available for reliability, use-anywhere inside a PC for extra long life expectancy (upgrade your PC and take these fans with you!). One of the unique features of these PC fans is that the motor has been completely sealed from the outside environment. This prevents dust entering the motor and also reduces the amount of noise perceived to be coming from the bearings within the motor.
Each DustPROOF™ quiet fan is also supplied with a unique 3-speed fan cable which offers maximum flexibility (3-pin or 4-pin Molex power connectors), along with the ability to select a fan speed suitable for your PC and noise sensitivity. The black connector will run your fan at full speed (12V), the blue connector will run the fan at medium speed (7.5V), and the white connector will run it at minimum speed (5V). However, if you opt for the white connector (minimum fan speed), be certain to design the airflow through your PC system carefully and monitor system and component temperatures. Acousti have even included four handy cable ties with each DustPROOF™ fan!
The DustPROOF™ quiet fans also incorporate an Auto Start safety feature. This feature is built into the fan's PCB and automatically restarts the fan after the release of any obstacle which has prevented the blades from spinning.

The best £13 i've spent for a while.. this fan is a bargain and so flippin quiet for it. Quietpc's service was fast and efficient as well. The first time i've bought from this site but will head straight here every time after this. :)
Bought this and its 92mm twin as a final stage in an overhaul of a Dell XPS 8100. This 80mm replaces the fan that came on the dell heat sink, this is incredibly quiet and cools the CPU by a considerable degree compared with the factory installed one.
Silent and very easy to fit (motherboard and molex connections included). rubber mounts also included. All good.
Superb value and performance.
Completely agree with the other reviewer. As I said in my review of the 120mm version of these, they are brilliant and very quiet. Well worth the extra cash!
Easy to fit, the rubber mountings are great. Absolutely silent, incredible!
