Product overview

• Spinning at 11,000RPM, just 15dBA of noise is emitted so it’s nearly silent
• Moves 0.6 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air, producing good airflow around your system despite the small size
• Standard 3-pin fan connector for connecting to almost any motherboard
• Supplied with a 3-pin to 4-pin Molex adapter, for direct connection to a power supply (PSU)

How much air does this fan move and is it loud?
This tiny fan can move a satisfying amount of air despite its compact form factor. The fan is perfect for cooling chipsets, hard drives and small form factor cases. It spins at 11,000 RPM to provide you with 0.6 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of airflow. Despite spinning at such a high RPM, this fan only produces 15dBA of noise. This makes it great for installing in systems where you want to keep ambient noise production to a minimum.

Would this fan be good in places with a restricted amount of space?
Capable of achieving up to 2.5mm/H2O of static pressure means that this fan is perfect in cases or areas where space is limited. With a good amount of airflow produced and high static pressure, you could fix this fan in a number of situations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from PROS: This fan is almost silent when running on its own, and moves a surprising amount of air for its tiny size. CONS: Very noisy when connected to a metal or plastic enclosure. Rubber gasket or washers recommended. Also I have yet to find a hardware store who sells fixings small enough to fit the mounting holes (approx 1.5mm diameter) - Maplin does not stock anything suitable. I was very disappointed when the fan stopped working before I had finished mounting it due to one of the (very thin) wires becoming detached from its contact at the motor. Glad I bought two, I have super glued the wires to the chassis to stop any movement at the contacts on the second one.

Hello, I wish to buy 2 5V fans to splice both wires into one to feed into a power supply - EG: 240V into power supply into 2X5V fans, what power supply voltage would I need, a 5V or a 10V with there being 2 5V fans involved?

will this work on a raspberry pi v2 ?

Asked by: jake 21
The Pi is not designed to run a fan, as such there is no 3 pin connector as would be found on this fan. As such we would be unable to guarantee compatibility.
