CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS
All in all, despite the one DOA fan these fans performed very well. The noise levels were decent and the fan controllers provided with each unit was a nice touch. I have had four of these fans running in my main PC for almost a month now and I honestly couldn't be happier with a fan. I would like to see an LED option introduced to the line as I feel that would be the cherry on an already rather well made cake. I personally love the color and appearance of the fans (although I am not usually a fan of green) and think they would look good in any case you choose to put them in, provided they don't clash with other components. The boxes and website both proudly state “German Engineering” and Nanoxia certainly uphold the reputation associated with that phrase.
I cannot in good conscience grant the line a top rank award owing to the DOA fan. Whilst I am almost certain it was just a spot of bad luck for Nanoxia that a dud fan slipped through the cracks and got to me, I can't ignore the fact that it did. So, the fans will get our second highest award.
This gives me the unique opportunity to test their customer service though so we will see if they send me a replacement for the dead fan. Should that happen acceptably and quickly then the award will be updated accordingly.
