EK Releases New Extended Range Series EK-Vardar Fans

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce the latest addition to the company's first fully in-house engineered computer cooling fan family, the EK-Vardar. These new fans are available in either All Black or All White design and feature Extended Range (ER) of operation.

Dubbed Vardar, this family of cooling fans carry the name of a type of the cold northwesterly wind blowing from the mountains down to the valleys of Macedonia. It is a type of ravine wind, enhanced by a channelling effect while blowing down through the Moravia-Vardar gap, bringing cold conditions from the north to the Thessaloniki area of Greece. Most frequent during winter, it is blowing in the rear of a depression when atmospheric pressure over eastern Europe is higher than over the Aegean Sea.

Antec Announces TrueQuiet 120 UFO Fan Series in Europe

Antec is presenting TrueQuiet 120 UFO, an extremely quiet fan for PC housings with a highly efficient level of air circulation. Nine specially shaped fan-blades prevent swirls and their unwanted noise. Due to rubberised contact points to the housing, vibrations are being dampened efficiently. Thanks to its transparent LED ring, the TrueQuiet 120 UFO can powerfully illuminate the housing in the colours blue, green, white or red. The included rubber pins furthermore enable a tool-free installation of the fan.

Finally the TrueQuiet 120 UFO is available in Europe, bringing state-of-the-art fan technology to PC systems. This new 120-mm housing fan has been developed with a strong focus on noise reduction and performs its work almost unheard. Two ventilating speeds are available via control system: 1,000 rounds per minute at 19.9 dBA or 600 rounds per minute at almost unnoticeable 8.9 dBA.

Noctua Unveils Two New Slim A-series Fans

Noctua unveiled two new super-slim A-series fans at Computex 2015. These include the all-white Slim 120 mm spinner, and the Slim 200 mm. The 120 mm Slim A-series is just 15 mm thick (compared to 25 mm standard); and features an all-white frame and impeller. It features an acoustic-optimized frame, with inner surface micro-structures that serve an anti-acoustic function; and vibration-dampening pads along its frame-mount, and included rubber bolts. An SS02 bearing gives the fan six-figure-hour MTBF. The 200 mm version features all those, plus a common Noctua-brown color scheme, and a 200 mm low-noise impeller.

Noctua Announces Project Chromax - DIY Colorful Fans

Sick and tired of the brown, but can't do without Noctua quality? The company announced Project Chromax, an initiative to design new products that will give users the freedom to choose their own colors on certain parts of the fan, such as frame-mounts, and rubber bolts. Currently shown off with the company's all-black IPC 120 mm spinners, Noctua unveiled silicone-based anti-vibration frame-mounts and bolts in four colors. The company didn't announce any product with these yet, but is expected to launch a few, with such accessories.

Noctua Makes Progress with ANC Fans

Noctua announced several major design breakthroughs in its effort to design the first fan with a fully integrated active noise-cancellation system (ANC). ANC works on the principle of destructive interference in wave mechanics. As the fan blades and motor produce noise, a microphone takes in that noise to a processor, which inverts the phase of the sound, and sends it to speakers, that give out sound that interferes destructively with the noise output of the fan, reducing its amplitude.

Noctua announced breakthroughs that include a logic board that can fit into the fan's motor-hub and needn't stay in an [ugly] plastic box hanging outside the fan; and a new standards-compliant 25 mm-thick 120 mm fan design, which will pass off as any 120 mm fan; and can be easily installed on existing systems. The company also improved the ANC system magnets that run along the bore of the frame, and is working on improving the impeller design, and the software driving the ANC system. The company successfully concluded mass-production feasibility study.

Reeven Shows off Three New Fans

In addition to three new fan controllers, Reeven unveiled three new fans - the Euros, the ColdWing 12, and the ColdWing 14, pictured in that order. The Euros is positioned as a premium high air-flow offering. This 120 mm spinner features S-FDB bearing, which translates to an MTBF of 120,000 hours, and comes in speeds of 800, 1200, 1600, and 2000 RPM in its 3-pin variants; and 500~1200, 500~1600, and 800~2000 RPM in its 4-pin (PWM) variants.

The ColdWing 12 and ColdWing 14 are value offerings. The 120 mm ColdWing 12 features conventional sleeved bearing, with 30,000 hours MTBF. Its 3-pin variant comes in 800 RPM and 2000 RPM versions; while its 4-pin (PWM) variant offers a speed range of 300~1500 RPM. The 140 mm ColdWing 14, on the other hand, comes in 800, 1200, and 1700 RPM variants for 3-pin; and 300~1700 RPM for its 4-pin (PWM) variant. Like the ColdWing 12, it features a 30,000-hour MTBF rated sleeved bearing.

Reeven Unveils Three New Fan Controllers

Reeven showed off three new fan controllers at Computex. These include the Four Eyes Touch (RFC-03), Six Eyes II (RFC-02), and Polariz (RFC-04), pictured below in that order. The Four Eyes Touch, as its name suggests, is a touchscreen-based controller, with four fan channels. The controller can put out up to 30W per channel, and can display fan speeds of up to 9,999 RPM. Its thermal probes can read temperatures of up to 99°C. The Six Eyes II combines a similar touchscreen interface, with physical buttons for switching channels. It can control six fan channels, with similar chops as the Four Eyes Touch. Lastly, there's the Polariz. This 3-channel controller has analog rotary knobs for each channel, with digital fan-speed and temperature readouts on tiny LED displays on each knob.

Scythe Releases Slip Stream 120 DB Fans with Dual Ball Bearing

Japanese cooling expert Scythe expands the 120 mm case fan portfolio with the announcement of the new Slip Stream 120 DB axial-fans. The new line up includes five regular models with fixed fan speed as well as one PWM-enabled model. Special highlight of the series is the Dual Ball Bearing, which has been developed in Japan. Thanks to the new bearing an intense life span increase to 350.000 hours (MTBF) has been accomplished.

The successful "small hub & large fan blades" concept was initially introduced with the first Slip Stream series and is handed down to the Slip Stream 120 DB. Increased flow area and airflow could be achieved at the same fan speed, thanks to this concept. Slip Stream 120 DB lineup includes six different models, including a PWM-enabled version, which offers a wide fan speed range starting at 300 RPM and going up to 1.300 RPM.

ASRock Readies the Fanless BeeBox Compact Desktop

HP's Fanless Chromebox Isn't

HP is alleged to be falsely marketing its Chromebox desktop as "fanless." The company in its marketing material (pictured below), describes its Chromebox as being "silent, quiet, and efficient," and "dust-free" due to its "fanless design." When tested by YouTube-based hardware reviewer Lyon Siedman, he noticed a hum and vibration caused only by the presence of a fan. When sifting through HP's very own disassembly guide (PDF), you'll find a picture that reveals its fan-heatsink, used to cool the 17W TDP CPU. Since when is "fanless" a figure of speech like "silent?"
