    Coolink today introduced its new SWiF2 fan series. Successor to the popular SWiF series, the new SWiF2 family takes its successful predecessor's proven qualities one step further. Refined blade designs, high-performance hydro-dynamic bearing and support for PWM fan speed control, combined with an exciting new colour scheme, are the cornerstones of the new series.

    "With more than a hundred thousand satisfied users, our Silent Whisper Fans have created a huge following among those looking for true high-end fans at a reasonable price.", says Timothy Chu, Coolink CEO. "Today, we're thrilled to revive the series with new, further improved models as well as an exciting new colour scheme. Of course, the new SWiF2 family remains true to our vision of linking excellent quality with attractive pricing."

    Featuring an all new 11-blade impeller design, the design goal for the SWiF2 120mm fan was to improve its airflow and airflow to noise ratio, making it suitable for a broad range of applications. Thanks to its unique blade design, the SWiF2 120mm improves upon its successful predecessor's airflow to noise ratio by up to 40% at low fan speeds. Both the 80 and 92mm models are built upon the proven basis of the original SWiF models, featuring even lower noise levels and higher reliability.

    In addition to improved blade designs, all SWiF2 fans feature hydro-dynamic bearing, ensuring whisper quiet operation and even better longevity, which is reflected in an enhanced MTBF of 150.000 hours and a warranty time of 60 months.

    Each of the SWiF2 fans is available in three versions: Whereas the PWM version offers a flexible speed range and automatic mainboard speed control, which makes it the ideal choice for CPU cooling applications, the two 3-pin versions are perfect for enthusiasts who demand extremely quiet operation.

    Pricing and Availability
    The SWiF2 fans are available immediately at a suggested retail price of EUR 11.90 / USD 13.90 for the 120mm models and EUR 9.90 / USD 11.90 for the 80 and 92mm models.

    Wow, if I count correctly, the 120mm has 11 fan blades. There must be some goodness in that. :cool:

    Edit, read the article and apparently, there are 11 blades. :)

    it depends really - usually more is better it terms of static pressure (although that depends on the design)- which is why you see jet engines using a gazillion fan blades.

    Okay, I'm posting this solely because I spent quite a bit looking for a comparable Air Flow measurement for these fans (most sites including the manufacturer list them as XX ml/h which wasn't helpful at all).

    Finally after looking for quite a bit I found them on PC Look.

    The mid Swif2 1201 fan (55.42 CFM, 18.2 dbA) actually outperforms the Noctua NF-P12 (54.3 CFM, 19.8 dbA) which is pretty amazing considering how good the NF-P12 is.

    The PWM fan however I feel doesn't really match up to the other two fans: 35.53-75.06 CFM||8.5-27.1 dbA. It probably has similar performance at the same speeds, but once you turn it up to 75CFM the noise skyrockets... still by no means bad, but not as good as some other fans at that speed.

    The fans themselves I don't find too expensive either considering the 60 month warranty and the Hydro-Dynamic Bearing... they're $15 at performance-pcs.com

    These fans look awful. More white bladed fans in the future please?
