    Enthusiast PC cooling expert Koolance introduced its latest product, a 120 mm high-flow fan for cases, air-coolers, and radiators, but we're inclined to think it's designed to let users make the most out of smaller 2-fan radiators. The FAN-12038HBK-184 from Koolance measures 120 x 120 x 38 mm, it draws power from a 3-pin fan header and includes speed monitoring. With a top-speed of 4,000 RPM, the fan can push 184 CFM of air with a rated maximum noise output of 59 dBA. Since it spins at tremendously high speeds and uses a high amperage motor (2.0A), Koolance cautions its users to use a grill along with it, as its blades pose a safety hazard. At $11.99, the Koolance FAN-12038HBK-184 is relatively affordable compared to similar fans from Sanyo-Denki/San-Ace, Delta, PanaFlo, or Yate Loon.

    At that price this will be very popular with the extreme crowd. Well, would if they didn't already own a zillion high flow fans.

    Price is good, as long as it plays nice (no clicking) when on a controller I'll pick up a couple.

    Stick a couple of these bad boys on the bottom of your case and you'll have a hover-computer.

    I have a Koolance fan on my CPU rad in my computer, and it's a monster. By far the most CFM I've ever seen in any fan (but it's friggin noisy). If this thing is supposed to be 24W, I think it might actually rip a whole in the fabric of the universe with it's airflow.

    EDIT: Should also mention, that I agree with needing a fan grill. I have gotten my finger jammed in my Koolance and it took a far chunk of skin off.

    With such high speed, I wonder if it will take off/hover when put flat on a table?! :eek:

    actually they tend to lift up a small amount then the centrifugal force makes them spin crazily around attached only by the power cord.

    they tend to unplug themselves or hit something/someone before any real damage is done.

    Considering a lot of 70cfm fans are 35dba plus it is quite good.

    Normally as airflow goes up noise generated is much more per cfm.

    But this is more than double the air flow with less than double the sound.

    That's good.

    Means if you run it half speed it may do 90cfm at 30dba ;)

    Admitedly there are better fans, but they cost more.

    I would love some crazy fans like these but most suck down too much power to use any fan controller that is easily available to me.

    3.3A and 40w :eek: are there any fan controllers that can handle a single one of those never mind multiple?
