    Other than the time on the warranty, that's a conclusive win over the noctua. It ran cooler and with half the noise in the high heat load situation

    Can they be used to mount a 120mm fan on the front as a replacement for the non-standard 135mm? If so, there are numerous fans larger than 120 but with 120 spaced mounting holes that could make a good replacement (I use a 140mm on a CM hyper 212X for eg.)

    They can indeed. The two sets of fan clips are different lengths; one longer set for regular fans, the other shorter set for the supplied non-standard 135.

    This reminds me a lot of Arctic Freezer 7 back in the day. Way better than stock cooling for affordable money without going into silliness that most people don't need.

    Not bad but I'll stick with my arctic cooling freezer 34 esports duo ( about £35.00 ) thank you.
    get 2 fans as well but i took the 2nd off and used as a rear case fan , push pull with 2 fans doesn't makes negligible difference.

    Grabbed one from FB marketplace a while back and it's been a beast. My poor old Hyper 212 evo had a great run but that'll go on the girlfriends PC (which is currently my PC) once I've upgraded in the next couple of days.
