    Hungarian Englide Technologies has released new 80mm and 120mm cooling fans. Englide's main strength lies in designing fans and the company, although completely new for many of us, has been on the market for 10 years. Now back to the new fans, they are designed primary for low RPM and low noise operation. Englide separates its fans into two series - n.zero and n.zero classic. The n.zero classic fans come with blades constructed of normal non-transperant plastic, while n.zero fans use semi-transparent material for the blades and the frame. N.Zero fans also ship with silicone anti-vibration mounts. Except the different plastic used, both series perform equally. The smaller 80x80x25mm models weight in 77 grams, spin at 1500 rpm @ 17 dBA and are rated at 19.2 CFM airflow. The bigger 120x120x25mm fans with overall weight of 122 grams spin at 980 rpm with the same noise output of 17 dBA and 36 CFM airflow. Englide gives 3 year warranty for its case fans.

    I see no need for more 'Low-Noise' fans when the market is already full of them.
    With a whole host of products from mainstream, well established manufacturers such as Antec, Scythe and Thermaltake to name but a few, Englide better hit a sweet spot with the pricing of these fans as if they don't I fail to see them selling many.

    at least the db/CFM ratio isn't terribly out of sync...

    I still have a Blue LED Apevia fan i originally bought as a back fan to my Super Lanboy case(its now on the side panel of my CM 690 case) and it pulls in alot of air, and is pretty quiet, Apevia is a good company in the fans department of things.

    I cant say I consider any of antec or thermaltake's offerings as low noise, unless you count fan control, in which case most fans can be made silent.

    however, this must target the htpc/lowpower segment as the airflow is just too low for a modern enthusiast setup

    I like the looks of the semi transparent 120mm. I'm using 1000rpm GlacialTech fans that are cheap and very quiet. These would have to be much cheaper than anything from the big boys.

    Although it says 3 years warranty, In my 24/7 use they won't last 3 years, sleeve bearing just doesn't have the stamina. So I wouldn't mind getting new ones for free :)
