Anyone use Cougar fans?

Specifically:

Thinking about picking up 3 for my Fractal R4 to replace the stock (silent, 3-pin) fans.

They are 20% off for 72 hours with a coupon code.

I got cougars in two lower end builds without side panel windows. No issues after a year + of operation.

I use 3 of these:

which are essentially the lower-tier version of what you posted, in my build. They're nice, quiet fans. Certainly better than the two CM Sickleflows I have in the front. They've been running solid for a year and half, vertically and horizontally.

I love my cougars. And the red led's make them look mean. Keep them vertical tho. They have an issue when placed horizontal.

I met a cougar at a bar once.

Cool.

I guess I'll grab them and give them a try.
