If you're in a tight spot....
Real life saver this, couldn't get a conventional 20mm wide fan and a radiator in, this fitted with a few mm to spare. The blue LED is a fairly strong colour, not too bright so as unobtrusive as such a thing can be, (though you can turn off the LEDs). I note another reviewer says his made a ticking noise.... the one I have does not, any noise is it does make is drowned out by the graphics card.
Decent fan but...
These fans shift a lot of air for their thin size, and they look great, but they do make a slight irritating ticking noise, which if you have a quiet pc in a quiet room gets really annoying. That said however if your pc isn't that quiet you probably won't notice it.
