Conclusion

 

Antec’s new True Quiet series is great. These fans have a unique all-rubber mounting system that makes them some of the quietest fans I’ve ever listened to.

 

The speed switches seem kinda gimmicky to me, but I’m the type that typically uses a fan controller. If you don’t use one you may benefit from the ability to change the fan speed to suit your needs.

 

The molex adapter is a great inclusion but the addition of the tach header seems kinda pointless. It’d also be nice if the wires on these adapters were just all black to better fit in with the fan’s wiring.

Overall these fans are great. The Pro’s move a ton of air and do so very quietly. The LEDs move slightly less air but add in the colored flair if that’s what you’re looking for. The Antec True Quiet fans can be found over at NewEgg for $13.99-$26.99, depending on model at the time of this writing. They all come with a 2-year warranty. These Antec fans will be giving the Noctuas a run for their money, especially seeing how the Noctua’s color scheme is pretty hard to fit into most themed builds without looking out-of-place. If you’re looking for near total silence with great looks and some LED goodness, you should definitely take a look at the Antec True Quiet series of fans. You won’t be disappointed.

 

The True Quiet LED gets our Great Hardware award due to outstanding performance and low price points.

 

The True Quiet Pro gets our Good Hardware award because its $26.99 price tag might be a bit high for a case fan.
