    LEPA introduces 5 new series fans, incorporating new fancy LEDs to heavy-duty design that runs smoothly at 70°C ambiance.

    LEPA CASINO 4C: Casino 4C offers 4 COLOR LED (Blue, red, green and white) with 6 switchable light effects control, including new fancy “SPARKLE” mode. LEPA CASINO 4C is definitely one of the most colorful and fancy fans you’ve ever seen. Coupled with high performance vortex frame design and PWM function, LEPA CASINO 4C is no doubt the unbeatable choice of cooling fan. Price: US $19.99.

    LEPA CASINO: With patented spiral LED, blue light and 6 effects, LEPA CASINO provides a splendor lighting show. Additionally, the vortex grille frame design delivers straight airflow to further enhance cooling performance, and PWM control offers flexible speed regulation according to system needs. US $16.99.

    CHOPPER: Other than spiral LED, CHOPPER uses a different LED pattern called 360° Cycling LED. With the unique design, its LED light looks like a moving propeller of choppers. CHOPPER is available in blue and red for users to select from. Price: US 12.99.

    LEPA VORTEX: LEPA also offers the alternative non-LED fan for users. LEPA VORTEX’s PWM function together with vortex grille design represents the best performance cooling solution while the lowest noise level remains. Prices: 140 mm for $15.99, 120 mm for $12.99.

    Vortex grille frame design- different to traditional fan grilles that diffuse the air flow, LEPA VORTEX CASINO uses a special multi-vortex frame design and creates a cyclone jet blast to push the air flow to a farther and concentrated degree, enhancing excellent air convection to directly suppress the hot spot thus reduces the temperature.

    70D: 70D keeps silence and durability for the reason of its innovative BAROMETRIC OILLESS BEARING. It provides the extremely silent operation and 100,000 hours MTBF @ 70oC ambience, which is around 10oC higher than normal sleeve fan! Besides, with a 5V/7V/12V combo adapter, it allows users to choose performance, silent or ultra silent mode conveniently in accordance with system applications. Prices: 120 mm for $10.99, 80 mm for $7.99.

    I thought the Casino ones looked like enermax fans ( spiral led lighting)

    I've not seen ones that are completely lit up like the chopper ones before now.

    Nothing said about rpm. That's the most important thing about a fan no?

    They f*ing sparkle, who cares about RPM, airflow, noise, power consumption or all those other boring values? :laugh: :laugh:

    I prefer the enermax. These look like they'd leak air on a rad.

    For the record they do provide some of the best noise/cfm ratios you can find, and are bright enough to light up a whole case with a ton of color options. Pretty nice fans. Replaced my AP29 with the pwm one.

    Damn right! Look at the sparkle!!!:roll:

    I will never understand the draw to LED's and windowed cases. I want my gear to PERFORM, I don't spend my time looking at it, I don't invite my friends over too look at it... :rolleyes:

    I didn't think that much about this when i first read it, but is 70°C really a point of anything? When you're blowing air that's already 70°C hot into a cooler, you have a mighty fine problem right there.
    I know for sure that my Phenom II 955 was playing up when the die was over 55°C. Most chips shut down somewhere around 100°C, so that'd leave a 30°C temperature increase for the IHS, TIM and cooler. While many enthusiast-level coolers manage this, most regular ones, like intel stock coolers (+45-70°C), don't, but when you're pushing around air at 70°C, that's probably what you own.

    Am I reading what you said right?

    All it says is that it has an X life span at 70 degrees ambient. Not that it runs at 70 degrees

    100000h MTBF basically means that after 11.5 years of non-stop-operation you'll have a 50% chance that your fan has failed at some point.

    I might be getting this all wrong, it could be that these fan are just supposed to last longer than 60°C-types; just like 105°C caps are frequently used since they provide a longer lifespan at normal temperatures, compared to 85°C-types under the same circumstances. 100000h sounds like plenty for everyone, though....

    Those Casino fans are snazzy but I'd put the Vortex fans in my rig first... with rubber protection of course!

    Add a bit of dust and 100000hr MTBF will become about 10000hrs

    If you study fluid dynamics you will know that in the end optimisation commoditises fans to a few designs.

    Protip: Those blades that focus the air are a generic design.

    You'll find them on high powered server fans all the time.

    Who really cares? Why bring it up in the first place if then?

    And the them not being a server fan isn't relevant at all, the design can still be used on any fan.

    Fans are fans, server fans are just heavy duty and higher quality fans.
