    Scythe Europe is officially announcing the new Slip Stream 120 mm Slim case fan series which were first displayed at the exhibition CeBIT 2009 (Germany). Due to its thickness of only 12 mm, this new case fans are the best suited for HTPCs and PC cases with limited space where a normal case fan with 25 mm thickness cannot be mounted.

    Slip Stream 120 mm Slim case fan is available in 800, 1,200, 1,600, and 2,000 rpm version, and it extends the popular Slip Stream 120 mm case fan family. The lowest model is spinning at 800rpm designed for silent users, and generates an airflow of 19.40 CFM (32 m³/h) at a noise level of 19.53 dBA. For high performance and use in combination with a fan controller, the highest model is the best suited. It is specified with 2,000 rpm and an airflow of 45.47 CFM (78 m³/h) at a noise level of 37.00 dBA. Weight of the fan is 98 g (2.71 oz), and the optimized sleeve bearing has the designated life span of 30,000 hours (MTBF).

    I really wish they'd focus on the quality of the existing models before throwing more out there... every time I order one of these a few months later it starts dripping crap and seizing up, to the point where I can't even force it to spin. It's like the guts melt, cool and harden.

    Same thing happened to me.

    You need to oil the fan manually otherwise they will seize. On the back of the fan peel off the sticker and take out the rubber plug and put some machine oil in the hole then put the cap back on and ether put the sticker back on or put a peace of tape over it to keep the plug from falling out.

    which bearings are you talking about ?

    the sleeves just need better grease oil won't help sleeves bearings.
    grease will stay put in there most of the time.
    those fluid dynamic ones have been bad a for many people.
    they leak out all the fluid and fail manufacturing defects (Sony bearings)

    I defiantly need some these thin fans heat sink is too tall couldn't fit my side fan, and need one think enough to fit behind and lcd screen in my case.kinda suprised they're coming outwith them
