Fan manufacturers almost always lie about their ratings.
I think Cooler Master in particular are notorious for that.

Quite often what fan manufacturers will do is they'll measure the sound when it's inside a case, or from a stupidly large distance, for instance, so they measure a lower noise level than they actually have.

well i was impressed with how quite it is... and i lied about getting more... i already have so many other blue LED fans, and these ones dont match any of the others, so it would look kinda silly, and im going to be getting a HAF X case... so i wont even need any of these 120mm fans... except for my radiator

You'll want to get a Anemometer to test fans with. Here's a picture of mine


This is about $20 cheaper than what I paid a few years ago

I second that haha

It's a good looking fan and not too shabby review.
I lol'd a little though when you said "I believe that it's 69cfm."

Is that a new rig you're working on or some old one?
