    Fractal Design has today revealed the Silent Series R2 fans, claiming that they have been "specifically developed to deliver significant airflow while maintaining low noise levels'. The R2 family includes 40 mm, 50 mm, 60 mm, 80 mm, 92 mm, 120 mm and 140 mm models, all featuring high performance hydraulic bearings and fully sleeved cables.

    All R2 fans come bundled with four metal screws, while the spinners 60 mm and larger also come with four rubber screws. For more info about the Silent Series R2 line just click here (PDF).

    "Specifically developed to deliver significant airflow while maintaining low noise levels" This must be an industry "first"! Whoda thunkit?

    Snore, snore, yawn, yawn, wink, wink, nudge, nudge!:D

    The 120 and 140 have higher airflow than the current ones, and they come with a low speed adaptor. The low speed adaptor must be a resistor, rather than a 7v or 5v - because they quote starting voltage for both.

    They aren't PWM, which is a shame.

    They're quite useful I guess, for people who want a measure of control without a fan controller and who can't connect them to motherboard headers..

    Personally I think anything up to 20 db is really quiet. I personally would like to have the most cfm for 20 db with fluid dynamic bearings. That would be my ideal fan.
