Scythe Expands GlideStream Serie by 140 mm Models

Japanese Cooling expert Scythe expands the recently announced GlideStream fan series by new 140 mm models. Similar to 120 mm models, Glide Stream 140 mm fans stand for further development of the award winning Scythe Slip Stream 140 fans. With a smaller center hub and bigger fan blades optimum airflow at low operation noise are accomplished. In addition new grooved blade design has been used to further improve the aerodynamics to reduce air resistance.

To further reduce the noise level new anti-vibration feature has been implemented which is one of the key-feature of the Scythe GlideStream series. All four mounting holes of the GlideStream 140 mm fans are equipped with a rubber pad-inlay. Transfer of vibrations from the operating fan to the PC Chassis or CPU Cooler can be significantly reduced thanks to the new rubber pad-inlays.

Prolimatech Magnetic Pin to Make Shuffling Fans Around a Case Snappy

Prolimatech announced a unique new accessory that makes it easier to attach fans to metal cases, at least those made of steel (and not aluminum). The Magnetic Pin is a conventional rubber fan bolt with a magnet on its head. This allows fans with four of these to snap onto cases' fan frames. The magnet is embedded into a rubber cavity, which dampens vibrations between the fan and the case, minimizing noise. Prolimatech is selling these pins in sets of four. The company did not mention pricing.

EverCool Launches Silent Shark Fan Series

EverCool launched its newest line of performance case fans with the Silent Shark Fan series, the first member of which, is the SSF-12. The 120 mm SSF-12 uses seven blades with sawtooth-shaped vanes at the ends, which work to increase air-flow, and the shape of which is inspired by shark gills. The impeller is suspended on what EverCool refers to as "ever lubricated" (EL) bearing.

The SSF-12 is designed to spin at speeds ranging between 800 and 1400 RPM ±15%, with noise output ranging between 19 and 26 dBA. It uses a conventional 120 x 120 x 25 mm opaque black frame. The fan uses a conventional 3-pin connector to draw power, and includes a rotary speed control module that spins it between its advertised speed range. It also includes white rubber bolts as alternatives to metal screws, which absorb vibrations and minimize noise.

Introducing the ICY DOCK MB080USEB-1SB Blizzard

External enclosures are a great way to have high capacity data storage on the go. Data can also be a critical factor for media, backup, or music professionals. Some of the top tier hard drive companies have made their own all in one enclosure with hard drive included. However, one of the known major causes of hard drive failure is due to excessive heat buildup caused by a lack of a proper cooling system. Also, a majority of hard drive manufactures only allow a 1 year warranty on their all in one external hard drives.

This can be fatal for someone who has just lost their data and has to spend a significant amount of money in order to recover their data. There are other external enclosures in the market that provide a cooling system to help prevent this, but the physical placement of the cooling system does not always allow for the optimal airflow to cool the hard drive. Going above and beyond, the MB080USEB-1SB Blizzard is the next generation of external enclosures dedicated for maximum performance in cooling.

Akasa Euler Fanless PC Case Pictured Some More

Akasa's Euler fanless PC case, which was first pictured at Computex 2012, is inching towards a September 2012 launch. Some of its first press-shots were leaked to the web. The pictures reveal its interiors, including the CPU block that conducts heat to the metallic body, where it is dissipated. This passive CPU cooling mechanism, according to a new report, can handle thermal loads of up to 35W, making it fit for low-power dual-core processors. Akasa Euler will be sold at an affordable price, according to the report.

Scythe Unveils ACB-TYPE3 Acrylic Open-Air Case

Scythe unveiled its newest open-air transparent PC case made mostly of 5 mm-thick clear-acrylic, the ACB-TYPE3. Unlike most boxy or picnic basket-shaped open-air cases, the ACB-TYPE3 uses a tower-type design, with the motherboard tray along the plane of the base, rather than perpendicular to it. The drive bays (3x 5.25", 3x 3.5", 2x 2.5") and PSU bay are arranged in a compartment below the motherboard tray.

The Scythe ACB-TYPE3 supports most ATX, micro-ATX, and mini-ITX motherboards. The design also allows for CPU coolers to be as tall as 190 mm. There are plenty of cutouts for wiring and tubing to pass through the various compartments of the case. The lack of side-panels is what makes it an open-air case, as do the lack of included fans. The best part -- it comes dismantled for you to assemble yourself, and its box isn't much bigger than the one a flat-panel monitor ships in.

Akasa Unveils Piranha Case Fan

Akasa unveiled its third themed case fan after Viper (which goes into Venom series products) and Apache. Called the Piranha, the new fan design by Akasa relies on a new impeller blade design with teethed edges and broad blade ends, which work to increase air-flow, which can then be traded off for lower speed and lower noise. Akasa initially only has a 120 mm (120 x 120 x 25 mm) model. It supports PWM control, and draws power from standard 4-pin connector. Its cabling is sleeved. The Piranha from Akasa could be sold as unit fan packages, but could also feature in future Akasa products such as CPU coolers, cases, and PSUs.

RotoSub and Noctua Announce Partnership for PC Fans with Noise Cancellation

Noise reduction specialist RotoSub and renowned quiet cooling fan manufacturer Noctua today announced a strategic partnership agreement for the development and commercialisation of PC fans with integrated Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). A first prototype of a Noctua fan with integrated RotoSub ANC technology will be shown at Computex Taipei next week.

Active Noise Cancellation (also referred to as Active Noise Control or Active Noise Reduction, ANC) is the technique of using sound waves to reduce noise by means of an effect called phase cancellation or destructive interference. Lars Strömbäck and Mårten Oretorp from RotoSub have invented a system (RotoSub Active Noise Control, R-ANC) that allows a fan to emit the sound signal that cancels out the original sound of the fan and thereby greatly reduces the overall noise emission.
