Xilence Red Wing 80mm Quiet Fan
Xilence Red Wing - Excellent value fixed speed fans!
Xilence (pronounced "ex-eye-lence") may be a brand that you do not recognise, but rest assured that we have fully evaluated their products and we are more than happy not only with the product quality but also, (and sometimes more importantly), the noise levels.
The Red Wing fans represent not only excellent value for money but they also look great in their black and red colour scheme. The bearings used in the Red Wing fans are hydro bearings, which produce very low vibrational noise. Each fan is supplied with mounting screws and can be powered by a 3-pin motherboard socket or a spare 4-pin Molex connector.

Quiet in different positions
The Hydro Bearing works in different positions. Other fans start to make sounds (or increase vibrations) when you turn them around to blow air upwards.
This fan makes no additional sounds and does not increase vibrations in whatever positions.
I deduct 1 point for slightly too low airflow.
Xilence Red 80mm Review
I placed the order on Tuesday, arrived Thursday. Packaged well. Excellent.
I purchased four of these fans, two for case cooling and two for hard drive cooling. I tried one and could not believe how quiet it was. Replaced all the fans and booted up. With all the fans on they are still quieter than my graphics card fan. As for cooling, they provide a reasonable air flow (hence 4 fans) and my hard drives are working at about the same temperature or slightly cooler. So my initial response is that I can highly recommend these fans. I'll post another review in a few months once they have had a few hundred hours run time.
They're only cheap in price.
Bought two of these on 16th Nov and received them less than 24 hours later. Fantastic service from Quiet PC. Many thanks from a satisfied customer.
The fans themselves replaced the supplied fans on my Arctic Cooling Twin Turbo GPU cooler. They'd started to become noisy and I'd already replaced them once, so I decided to try a different solution. These fans were that solution and I couldn't be happier with the result. They add no noise to the system when the card is at idle, meaning I can sleep soundly again even with the PC one metre away from my head. And despite their lower max rpm when compared to the fans they replaced, my 4850's temp at idle has only increased by two degrees, and is still at a very comfortable 39C.
Great silent fan
I'm very satisfied with this fan. It moves lots of air for a 80mm fan, and in addition it is very silent. I recommend it! And Quiet PC service is superb! I live in Macedonia, and the order arrived on the 5th day, just as stated! Thanks Quiet PC!
For some reason I was always put off these, probably due to the low flow rate, but just bought 5 (yes, five!) to upgrade a friends pc (and mine while I'm at it!).
Previous setup was just PSU fan as extractor, and CPU fan on mainboard.
Now I have replaced PSU fan with one of these, and added another to the case back. turned on the pc... nothing. hmm. doubled checked power, all ok. tried again... still nothing. must have wired them up wrong again (I'm good at that!), so have a look through the vent holes. to my surprise, they were both running full pelt!
So quiet I had to check twice to see if my pc was actually on!
My PSU is only a 300w unit, and even with a new graphics card added and a slower fan, it only puffs out a silent breath of air at about the same temp as a human breath.
All in all, £4 was never spent so well!
Quiet fans :-)
I bought 2 of these to install into the rear of a Dell Precision 490 workstation, also with a Zalman cable to reduce down to 5 volts, after I noticed high memory temps (up to 65C when idling), after I fitted a second processor.
In the end I found them so quiet I ran them at 12V and they added no additional noise (admittedly this Dell is not the quietest machine!). Knocked 10C off temps of memory and processors.
Superb value for money.
Low noise low price
This is a great little fan. Not expensive and very quiet. Despatched very quickly. Highly recommended!
Best fan trasaction ever! The Shiznit!
Being a noob here I called in and received fantastic service from a very friendly northern chap.
This is fan nirvana!
I still haven't tried the fans (bought 2x80mm and 1x120mm, all Xilence brand) because i am at work but i have to say that if you want fans, you cant go wrong here for delightful service and lightening fast delivery!
Did i also mention that the prices are very competitive but without being a rubbish store like many of its competitors. Actually QPC supplies other top stores so it shows that they have the stock you need!
I cannot believe how quiet these fans are and such good value. I've just fitted 2 in place of 2 "big name" so called quiet fans that were anything but. The difference is amazing. Buy. And well done Quietpc - 20hrs from order to delivery.
Quietest fan found so far!
Tried one out and found it to be the quietest fan I've used to date. Now planning to replace my other HTPC case pans with this product. My system has spun this down to 700rpm with little noise from changes in RPM as the system adjusts fan speed. Extremely quiet at 700rpm.
A good value, quiet fan
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Good, cheap and quiet and it's red!
Excellent for HTPCs
Purchased 2 of these fans to cool my HTPC. Positioning allowed me to go for a static cooler on the CPU. Absolutely silent in operation. Really have to get your ear close to hear them running.
