Conclusion


The SilenX Ixtrema range of fans are by far the quietest fans I have ever used in any machine. This coupled with the good CFM output of these fans makes them a great choice for people that enjoy silence but don't want to compromise performance.

Currently Retailing for £11.79 (80mm) and £16.97 (120mm) over at Specialtech.co.uk these fans are by no means cheap, especially when you consider what the cost of replacing every fan inside your case could be - it all depends on what price you put on silence I guess!


Pro's
- Silent.
- Good CFM output.
- Improvement over stock fans.
- Quality look and feel.
- Both 3-Pin & 4-Pin connectors included.

Con's
- Pricey if replacing all fans in your system.
- Noise dampening plugs may not work with all cases / grills.

Editors Choice

Thanks to SilenX for providing these fans for review :)
