Yate Loon D12SL-12 120mm Case Fan Review

Packaging and A Closer Look

The samples that I received from Aqua-Pcs were obviously OEM, and as such they forego any inclusion of advertising or  adaptors that typically come with retail units. However, the packaging is sufficient enough to prevent any damage during transit.

A Closer Look
The Yate Loon D12SL-12 are a remarkably nice looking and well constructed fan. The fan itself comes with a standard 3-pin connector.

Looking for some capable fans without breaking the bank? I can certainly recommend the Yate Loon D12SL-12.

would you recommend these over the noctuas?

05-02-2008, 13:33:49

Yes as they are cheap about 5 each.

These aint much more than a fiver though and seem to have better tech spec... Not actually used mine yet though so dunno how they actually preform but I've heard good things.


On the actual subject of this thread though.. Nice review man.. I've never used a Yate so have no right to say whether they are good or not but they do seem to do the job.

yes YATES ftw, luv em.

I think stock Lian Li fans are Yates and they just slap a sticker on them. =/ wouldn't be surprised.
