Ball bearing fans have a life expectance of 50.000hrs., but they are noisier than Sleeve Bearing and Rifle Bearing. Rifle Bearing is the newest thing on the market, but Ball Bearing still does well. So Ball Bearing is a noisier solution, but you have a life expectance of 50.000hrs and with Sleeve Bearing you 'only' have a life expectance of 30.000 hrs.
The DAF-B82 Fan
You get a nice packaging with all the needed screws. You also get a Thermal sensor, so you always have the best RPM that's needed for you case. Only one wire, so you don't have any wire mess in your case. You almost can't hear the fan, but I think it has a bit to low RPM with a temperature of 23°C. At 23°C you only have 1000 RPM and a small amount of airflow. And it's also hard to screw the screws into the fan.
Why do you use a fan?
You all read the review but some guys might think ' Why do you use a fan ' ? Well, It makes your PC a bit cooler, so you can do some overclocking stuff and a fan inside your case looks good.
The DAF-B82 fan from Cool Master looks good inside your case. You get a thermal sensor, so you always have the best RPM. But I think 1000 RPM at 23°C is a bit to slow for excellent cooling. You almost can't hear the fan and you don't have any wire mess. But it's difficult to screw the screw into the fan. You get Dual Ball Bearing so that means the fan has a life expectance of 50.000hrs. Price is around 7EUR (Around $6-7)
No wire mess
Hard to screw the screws into the fan
Bad airflow with low temperatures
