Product information

"AK-FN057 Apache Super Silent 120mm Fan - 4 Pin PWM"

Super silent 12cm fan with S-FLOW blades supplying 30% more airflow than a standard fan at the same speed. The greater performance combined with PWM automatic speed control allows the fan noise to be kept to a minimum. The Apache fan creates more focused airflow providing blind-spot cooling, which makes it an ideal solution for a case or heatsink fan. HDB (Hydro Dynamic) bearings extend fan life and further enhance noise reduction. IP54 military standard ensures the fan is dust and moisture resistant. It’s powerful, quiet and tough!

PWM is a widely available feature on all current Intel and AMD platform based motherboards. It is more accurate than voltage regulation, energy saving and a fully automatic way of controlling the fan speed. PWM provides ultra quiet acoustics during normal PC use and high performance cooling under high system load. The Optional Akasa AK-CB002 cable adapter can provide the system with two additional PWM connectors if needed.

Quiet at low RPM, but vibrates

I would echo what Snedie said. If you keep the RPMs low and dampen the vibrations (e.g. using the soft rubber things provided), it's very quiet. If you don't dampen the vibrations (e.g. just lie the fan on a desk or probably screw it into a case), it's actually quite noisy. Not as good as a Noctua NF-F12, but at about 1/3 the price pretty good value.

Good Fan

Good Fan, Have 2 of these on an Antec 620 push/pull config and I am getting temps of 26 degrees idle and 38 load on an AMD Phenom II 955 @ 3.6GHz.

It does what it says on the tin, I only wish they were quieter as that is one of the main reasons I bought them. Oh well.

Paul Gray 2012-04-18

Super silent, just as they say!

Got 4 of these over the weekend whilst they were on offer.

Fit them to my Corsair H100 in a pull/push setup and I must say im very impressed. They dont really cool they rad any better than the stock fans and the 2 spare coolermaster case fans I had on prior, but what they do very well is cool the rad whilst making a lot less noise.

The temp diffs are 33 idle & 44 load with the apaches whilst never making much of a noise at all.

The 2 stock corsair & 2 stock coolermaster fans temps were 32 idle and 44-48 load but under load the fans sounded like a couple of euro fighter typhoons had landed in the bedroom.

Shame they have gone back up in price or i would order 3 more to replace the stock case fans in my cosmos s. Also, shame they dont do this in a 230mm version as id love the 230mm vent on my cosmos s case side to have one of these bad boys.

Great service from overclockers too yet again. 2nd class service, but arrived within 2 working days of them picking up the order.

Snedie 2012-01-21

Good fan, not the best by far.

These fans only get four stars for the following reasons:

- Lack of pressure: Decent CFM, but the blade design doesn't facilitate good pressure through a radiator

- Vibration at low rpm: When put under a fan controller, at the lowest speed possible before the fan cut out, a significant vibration develops. When you have three of these on a radiator all doing this, it gets loud*

- * Loudness: Certainly not the quietest of fans, but for the price I guess I can't complain.

Vs the 120mm Noctua NF-P12 fans (

Silent and deadly efficient

I would give these fans 6 stars if I could, absolutely fabulous performance. Replaced my Corsair fans supplied with the H100 with 4 of these beauties..all I can say is WOW..WOW......and WOW again. Completely silent, I have to keep looking to see if they are running, even at maximum speed they are completely silent...and still moving bags of air through the H100 radiator (my i7-2700K never goes above 50 C even in OC flat-out manic mode and still the fans are silent. Apache = silent killer = buy them now if you want cooling performance and silence.

Only critique is the colour, not my cup of tea but I don't care a jot, they are hidden at the top of the case. Great build quality and braided wires make them top quality kit.

At under a tenner each they are the bargain of the century..!

Like air but don't like noise? This is f

I bought this as part of an upgrade for my system , its currently sat on my OcUk bought corsair h50.

even at full speed (1300rpm) this thing is hard to hear even when up close, all you hear is the air moving, and lots of it.

I never realised fan technology had advanced so far. I'm saving up to buy a full set of these to make my computer a silent gale.

comes with rubber mounting thingys to replace screws, best idea in ages.

5 stars cant fault it.

Very quiet and efficient fans

Purchased one of these fans on recommendation from Overclockers retail store staff, as a replacement for a noisy cpu cooler fan.
This has now made my system so quiet, whilst still maintaining the same temperatures as the old fan did (which ran at 2500rpm!)
Can't recommend them highly enough!!!
(incidentally, the cpu cooler I have is an Antec Kuhler Shelf)

Worth every penny
