Except the big thickness which can still be disturbing, Arctic Fans L are good fans and a very better value for silence and performance than the old series.

To be quite honest the Arctic Cooling 12L and 8L fans are quite impressive. Now I'm not intending to wax lyrically about Arctic Cooling, but these fans are well worth the US$5.99 (8L) and US$9.99 (12L) respectively. Firstly, the R & D that has gone into them is very apparent, the build quality is extremely good right down to the classy cable sleeving provided as standard. The silence that these fans provide whilst performing more than adequately, is testament again to the skilled design team at Arctic Cooling. Especially considering that these fans operate at such low RPM. Secondly, the included 6 year warranty is nothing to be sneezed at, thanks to the fluid dynamic bearing that is included, as opposed to the traditional ball bearing approach of other manufacturers.

These fans are very cool looking fans. The design of the Arctic Fans works well, it makes them whisper quiet. These would be great for anyone looking to replace their loud stock fans or even better for use in an HTPC system where you want the noise level to be as low as possible. I found nothing wrong with these fans they are excellent, and I can easily recommend them. DragonSteelMods gives the Arctic Cooling- Arctic Fan 8L and 12L fans a 5 out of 5 and our Recommended Award as well.

"Der Arctic Fan L ist der wahrscheinlich leiseste Ventilator bei gegebenem Luftstrom". Diese von Arctic Cooling versprochene Leistung ließ sich in unserem Test definitiv belegen. Diese neue Lüfterreihe von Arctic Cooling besticht durch die sehr geräuscharme Kulisse, großem Spielraum bei den Drehzahlen und innovative Technologie. Bei einem Preis von 4,90 EUR des 8L bzw. 7,90 EUR des 12L (Preis: 16.09.2006 arctic-cooling.com) können wir definitiv eine Kaufempfehlung aussprechen, wenn Wert auf Schlichtheit und Lautlosigkeit im PC-Gehäuse gelegt wird.

The Arctic Fan L are truly great fans. The 80mm version of the fan is only $5.99 and the 120mm version for $9.99. This is a bit on the pricey side but well worth it. The quality of the fans easily surpasses the MSRP. They are truly very silent and a great addition or replacement for HTPC users. However Arctic Cooling's fans always get battered in one area, they cannot be used as intake. The fans can only be mounted one way, allowing them only to be exhausts. Besides that fact, these fans are perfect. The Arctic Fan L truly earn the 9.5 out of 10 rating.

Die neue L Serie von Arctic Cooling kann zu den Lüftern der nächsten Generation gezählt werden. Die Lautstärke, spezielle Entkopplung und die Förderleistung sind ausgezeichnet. Im Moment kenne ich keinen Lüfter der spürbar leiser ist. Alles in allem eine super Empfehlung!
Neeks PC Playground: Arctic Fan L
Every test I have done I could only hear the gentle sound of air rushing by if I put my ear next to the fan. I set the fans on a hardwood floor, in a cardboard box and on a peace of metal and even when I put my ear next to the fan I could not hear either the 8L or the 12L. These fans put out the most CFM for there noise leva and would be perfect for those who want a quiet media center or a ultra quiet computer. I give both fans a 9 out of 10.
