These fans are fantastic. If you want nf-a12x25 and do not have the cash for it go with these. Look at der8auer's case fan reviews their performance test puts the p12 version of these fans right next to noctua nf-a12x25. These p120 fans are even better. They can spin as low as 200rpm and ramp up to 2100rpm. You have full PWM range from 10% to 100% to play with no low noise adapters necessary. Their static pressure is better than noctua. One point to pay attention is you fan curve. To be able to provide you with 10 years of warranty their 3 phase (yes 3 phase for this price of 8 Euros) motor has a protection circuit which produces a kind of low microwave oven sound when they are ramping up and down. So do not install aggressive fan curves with short step up and down timings. Than they are really silent. Since they pull and push a lot of air at high speeds you hear the air blowing. If you use it for case you do not need to ramp them up more than 60%. Just make calculations how much air you need in your case to refresh the whole volume in 1 second and use it as absolute maximum. I have 3 of those as intakes. when they blow around 800rpm (40% PWM) you fell that air is getting out from every hole of your case even when the exhaust fan is working.

Best fans there is, period. Extremely silent, move a lot of air, looks sick, and is $13. Can't get much more performance by even doubling the price and going with noctua.

from completed build Ryzen 3900x / Aorus Pro x570 / 64GB Viper 4 / Quadro P2000... futureproofing?
A bit to noisy under load. Especially over 1000rpm. Also when they start to accelerate quickly, there's a whining noise that gets on my nerves.
Initially I planned to use these fans for Arctic Cooling Freezer 33 eSports one in dual fan configuration on Ryzen 9 3900x (not overclocked) but the whining was unbearable. Bought BeQuiet Dark Rock 4 Pro as solution for cooling and sound.
The Bionix P120 (5 pieces) I used as case fans but had to manually set the PWM curve to be quieter in BIOS.
In past I was happier with Bionix F120 1800rpm PWM fans.
Will I buy Bionix P120 again? NO!
