Default Xigmatek CLF-F1253 120mm Fan

I've been looking around for some cheapish Green 120mm fans, and these are what I came across here.

I was wondering if anybody has bought these before, and can tell me about them? Questions are: Are they very noisy? Quality; do they rattle or vibrate heaps etc? Do they run fine undervolted? How bright are the LED's?

Some comments would be great, or if anyone has seen any reviews anywhere, please point me in that direction.

the game

you get what you pay for, just remember 20db isnt whisper quiet, thats quite audiable.

a 'rifle bearing' is just a sleeve bearing so its quieter than steel ballbearings but wont last as long and will get noisier as it ages.

i've got several XLF which are fairly decent for the price. They work fine under a fan controller. They push loads of air at highest speed but they're definately audible, but not too bad at all.
