    The relatively new and unknown Swiss cooling company GELID, today released the WING UV Blue series of case fans designed for gamers and modders. Available in 80mm, 92mm and 120mm models, these fans feature a unique Nanoflux bearing motor that is not only water and dustproof, but also allows the impeller to be removed for maintenance and cleaning. Rated at 100’000 hours MTTF (Mean Time To Failure), the WING UV Blue series blades are also UV reactive. In addition every fan comes with a voltage regulator, that allows adjusting the fan's rotation speed at your preference. GELID is now offering the new fans for $12.50, $13.50 and $16.40 for the 80mm, 92mm and 120mm models respectively. All fans carry a 5 year warranty. For more information, please visit GELID.

    These are quiet too! I would definitely pick these up. Being able to easily disassemble for cleaning is a big plus for me as cleaning fans is usually a nasty chore when it comes to computer maintainence. If I get a fan in the near future, It will likely be one of these.

    Sounds like wonderful replacements to me. Pricey but hell for what they do and ease of use, cant really complain.

    Thats at full speed. Lower it a little bit and the noise goes down substantially. ;)

    You won't be able to hear these at less than 20db with other fans in your case.

    These fans are no joke and are absolutely beautiful. They remind me of the Blacknoise Noiseblocker Series sold at Sidewindercomputers, except with UV blades.

    When you lower the speed, you lower the airflow, too.

    And I can easily hear 20db fans in my setup.

    Yea, I said less than 20db. Chances are unless your head is right next to the case, or you have other vibrations in your case, you won't really be able to hear these at less than 20db.

    Of course you lower the airflow when you lower the speed.

    What reputable review site gave the nanoxia series a bad review? A quick google search led me to several site that gave great reviews.... and they have a 10 year warranty.
