CRYORIG Announces New QF120 Fan Line

CRYORIG, innovator of PC thermal solutions is releasing it's new QF120 line of 120 mm PWM system fans. The new QF120 line features CRYORIG's proprietary Quad Air Inlet system. Four strategically placed air intakes line up the corners of the QF120 fan frame, allowing the static pressure optimized fan blades take in extra air from the sides of the fan frame increasing overall air output. HPLN High Precision Low Noise bearing from the XF140 line makes a return in the QF120 Series for low noise performance. The fans will cover a wide RPM spectrum with PWM control, allowing users to fine tune it to their liking individually. Integrated rubber Vibration Absorbers also come preinstalled to absorb excess vibration.

The QF120 will initially be released in three different models, QF120 Silent, QF120 Balanced and QF120 Performance. The QF120 Balanced features a moderate fan speed range from 330 to 1,600 RPM in order to offer good balance between performance, RPM and noise. The range is low enough for low noise use, and powerful enough for high load computing. The QF120 Silent features ultra low RPM speeds of 200 to 1.000 RPM with the minimum noise level of 5 dBA, virtually inaudible inside a PC chassis, while still pushing good airflow. The perfect solution for those who need near silence but still want their system cool and stable.

LEPA Introduces the BOL.Quiet Series Case Fans

Two years ago, LEPA has successfully introduced the first fan series. With the unique LED effects of the Casino and Chopper models, the manufacturer has quickly won the hearts of gamers and hardware enthusiasts. In the meantime, the LEPA engineers worked on new products and technological advancements to boost up the cooling performance of the fans. As a result, the company now presents the BOL.Quiet series with three new 12cm models. They are now available for sale in Europe.

The patented BOL Bearing from LEPA
All LEPA fans are based on a patented bearing technology. In comparison with usual ball bearing fans, LEPA's "Barometric Oilless Bearing" (BOL) ensures a smoother and quieter rotation. Furthermore, the BOL fans are designed for an extraordinary long lifetime of 160,000 hours MTBF! To reach such high performance capability, LEPA applies a self-lubricating sleeve made from a high-tech nano material as well as a magnet which connects the rotor with the base. That way, the manufacturer minimizes the contact area and can avoid annoying rattling or grinding noises.

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?"

Zalman ZM-DF12 Smart Fans Begin Selling

Zalman's most advanced fan, the ZM-DF12, started selling. Built in the 25 mm-thick 120 mm form-factor, the fan features a 'dual-impeller' design, which works to increase air-flow, at lower speeds. The dual-impeller is basically two sets of blades spinning along a common motor. The motor features a nano-polymer bearing that has lower thermal deformation over time than common fluid-dynamic bearing types. The fan features a 'reversed' frame assembly. The frame holds the hub from behind, rather than the front. The back part of the motor hub hence doesn't spin along with the impeller. It instead features the fan's in-built controller, that lets you control speed in three steps - 800 RPM, 1,200 RPM, and 1,600 RPM. The fan takes input from a 3-pin connector. At its maximum speed, it pushes 63.76 CFM of air, with 33 dBA noise output.

Spire Announces the Air Force 120 LED Fan

Spire today introduced its latest cooling creation, the Air Force 120 LED case/CPU cooler fan. Seen below, this new 120 mm model features a Nano precision bearing, a fan blade shape designed for 'ultra-silent operation', silicon rubber anti-vibration pads, sleeved wires, and four crystal blue LEDs.

The Air Force 120 LED can operate at 600 to 1500 RPM and has a maximum sound output of 22 dBA. The fan is backed by a five-year warranty and has a price tag of $18.95/€14.95 (before taxes).

CRYORIG Previews New H5 Coolers and RIMS Fan Concept at Computex

Noctua Unveils its Flocked Surface Fans

Noctua showed off its newest innovation in PC fan design, the Flocked Surface impeller. Simply put, these fan impellers feature fibrous flock layers along the surface, which creates a turbulent boundary layer of air, much like dimples do on golf balls, resulting in increased air-flow, and decreased air-flow separation (whiplash). Noctua is flocking its fans in two ways, flocked impeller, and flocked frame interior. Examples of both are pictured below.

LEPA Unveils Four New Barometric Oil-less Bearing Fans

LEPA, the LED fan expert, announces its new series of fans, including the LEPA CASINO 4C Advance; LEPA BOL.QUIET PWM; LEPA BOL.QUIET Tri-Speed and the LEPA VORTEX 88C.

The four series feature the patented BOL (Barometric Oil-less) bearing, a self-lubricating design with nano-particles. BOL bearing features for minimal friction operation and is quieter than traditional 2 ball-bearing designs; the special nano-particles are especially applied for using in a high working ambient, with MTBF≧160,000 hours.

Noctua Introduces Two New Fan Product Lines and Accessory Kits

Noctua today expanded its product portfolio with two new fan product lines and a wide range of accessory kits. Whereas the redux line addresses price-conscious users by reissuing some of Noctua's most popular, award-winning models and presenting them in streamlined, more affordable packages, the industrialPPC (Protected Performance Cooling) line is conceived for industrial heavy duty applications that require enhanced cooling performance and advanced ingress protection.

"Our new product lines allow us to address audiences we have not been able to reach in the past", explains Mag. Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO), "Coming at about 3/4 of the price of our standard models, the redux line is ideal for all those looking for a more affordable entry into the world of premium quality quiet cooling. The industrialPPC fans fulfil our industry client's requests for high speed models that are suitable for use in challenging environments. However, I think they will also appeal to PC enthusiasts striving for extreme performance. Last but not least, the introduction of the two new product lines allows us to respond to the recurring demands for Noctua fans in different colors."

Scythe Unveils the Kaze Master Flat II Fan Controller

Japanese cooling-expert Scythe is hereby announcing the successor of the Kaze Master Flat. The new version is using the classic design of the predecessor but omits the Protective Display Cover and replaces it with a solid front-panel with decently implemented buttons, offering users a clean appearance and fast access.

The big Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) covers most of the front-panel space and provides great overview of values that matter. Total of four touch-sensitive buttons are located in the corners, giving access to all the main functions of the Kaze Master Flat II fan-controller. The buttons on the right side allow users to adjust the fan speed in the range from 0 to 9.999 RPM, depending on the connected fan. Fan speed is adjusted by changing the input-voltage between 3,7 and 12 volts, as it has been done with other Scythe fan-controllers in the past. Each fan channel supports regular 3-pin and 4-pin PWM fans. Total consumption per channel has been tripled to 3 ampere (36 watts).

Aerocool Announces the Air Force Case Fans

Aerocool Advanced Technologies, one of world's leading manufacturers of excellent gaming PC gear, proves once again that great ideas can push the air cooling market further.
