Very powerful fan for its size! using it to keep my Samsung SM951 128GB cool.
My mobo (Asus Tuf Mark 1 Z270) has a little slot in its "thermal armor" under a removable cover for installation of a 40mm fan... From my modest research it doesn't seem to make much of a difference (maybe 1-2 degrees Celsius under high load, and the evidence was mostly anecdotal), but I couldn't just leave that slot empty! Plus, I always wanted to tell at dinner parties about having a 40mm fan installed into my motherboard armor (just kidding, I don't do dinner parties).
Sorry for the long story. This particular fan is of a high quality. I read about people running it for years non-stop doing minor cooling jobs. It's quiet and it's a very cute little guy! Just looking at the specs I couldn't find anything better for my needs but we all know that fans' specs have to be taken with a grain of salt. Noctua's reputation in that regard though hasn't been challenged yet, to the best of my knowledge. So I trust it moves few CFMs just fine and maybe even cools something while at it XD I named mine Quincy as I feel that this is a very special mighty little fan. A little fan that could.
Have to mention that the packaging was impressive. Contrasts highly with a simple crappy box my Intel CPU came in.
P.S. When installing the fan under the motherboard armor I had to use regular screws that came with the case, as the supplied fan screws seemed to be too large.
