    The multi-award winning 120mm GELID WING 12 UV Blue case fan for gamers and modders featuring a unique Nanoflux bearing is now available in a 4 pcs - multipack. The motor bearing is not only water - and dustproof but also allows the impeller to be detached for cleaning. The fan blades winglets were designed to achieve larger airflow, greater static pressure and are UV reactive. Beside the 4 fans the set includes 16 mounting screws and two 4 Pin Molex cables.

    The patented Nanoflux bearing (NFB) incorporates a clever magnetic design, very high precision manufacturing and runs friction-free and operates noiseless. Electromagnetic fields are exploited to keep solid parts from touching. The load is carried by a magnetic field. The Nanotechnology composite ensures lowest abrasion and extreme durability (MTBF 100,000 hours). Compared to other magnetic bearings this technology allows the impeller to be detached and thus the fan blades can be cleaned easily. The nano-composite material is self lubricating and even waterproof. Compared to sleeve and ball bearing the high precision self-lubricated material of GELID’s Nanoflux bearing eliminates oil leakage.

    All fans conform with RoHS and WEEE, and carry a 5 year warranty.

    “We have created these fans in a multipack for Modders, Gamers and Overclockers looking for best in class in terms of noise, performance and for a better price”, said Gebhard Scherrer co-founder and Sales Director of GELID Solutions Ltd.

    The “WING 12 UV Blue Multipack” is available now and has a MSRP of USD 65 or Euro 45. Same fan but with green impeller are available for the same price.

    They are VERY quiet and push a reasonable amount of air. A google search will show some reviews....
