    GELID, a fan manufacturer that I knew nothing about till yesterday, has launched the WING series - their first series of premium case fans in green color. A quick look at the specs of these fans immediately reveals that they are pretty good actually. Available in 8, 9 and 12cm sizes for gamers and modders, the WING series spin on an unique Nanoflux bearing motor which is not only water and dustproof, but also allows the impeller to be removed for cleaning. The fan blades are also designed to achieve larger airflow, greater static pressure and are UV reactive. A voltage regulator is also supplied with every fan, allowing the user to adjust the fan speed between 5-12 Volts as desired. All fans are backed by a 5 year warranty (MTTF 100’000 hours) and cost $12.50 for the WING 8 model, $13.50 for the WING 9 model and $16.40 for the WING 12 fan. Full specs of all three fans are listed below.

    Holy crap, those are nice case fans! I'm not much of a "fan" in aesthetics but if these fans got performance I'm so going to put these on special order!

    Kind of expensive but from a review a forum member posted a good while back (cannot remember who or what section) these are some of the best. Id love to get me about 6 of them 12cm, but damn thats is like over $100 USD!!!

    LOL

    I like the idea of them being waterproof and if these fans really are waterproof, I'll be purchasing a few. Putting them under running water to clean sounds great.

    Here's an update on these fans as well as the ones made by Nanoxia (http://www.nanoxia-europe.com/). Apparently the two companies are not working together and Gelid has a case against them. It also looks Nanoxia is owned by Xenmicro.

    These fans are nothing special.

    I have 7 of these fans in my Antec 1200 and in a little over a years time 3 of the 7 have failed.
    Since these fans don't have retaining clips for the rotor the fan blades pop out of place causing a very loud shrieking noise. Luckily they do have a 5 year warranty but sending back faulty hardware is always a hassle.
