Scythe Introduces Slim Stream 120 PWM High-RPM Fan

Japanese Cooling expert Scythe is announcing the availability of a new High RPM version of the popular Slip Stream PWM fan series. Slip Stream 120 PWM High-RPM is equipped with PWM feature which allows the mainboard to automatically control the fan speed in a range between 500 (+200 rpm) and 1,900 rpm (±10%) whereas the airflow of up to 110.31 CFM is being created which equals ca. 187,41 m³/h. This allows the High RPM version to cover a wider range compared to the already existing Slip Stream 120 PWM fan which is spinning in a range of 0 (+200 rpm) and 1,300 rpm (±10%) making the High RPM version suitable for high performance systems as well as overclocking use.

Besides the Slip Stream 120 PWM Adjustable which allows to adjustment of the PWM bandwidth and the Slip Stream 120 PWM & V.R. which additionally gives the possibility to manually control the fan speed using the Voltage Regulation, new Slip Stream 120 PWM High-RPM is equipped with the standard PWM feature allowing the automatic fan control via the mainboard.
New Slip Stream 120 PWM High-RPM is available for 7,25 EUR (excl. VAT) or 12.00 USD.

meh

bought 2 of these both move quiet alot of air AND emitted a electrical-melting smell and gotten very very very warm + they are very LOUD 40DBA+ in my case I have since RMAed them and gotten 2 cheap rose wills instead

my verdict: AVOID electrical smells are always BAD :shadedshu

I have three non-PWM versions of these and they have absolutely the best noise to CFM ratio I have ever encountered. I've read some few posts about bearing quality being bad and overheating problems. But I've had zero problems with these and I would definitely buy these again. Though, I don't use them at full 12V because there is no need. :) A PWM version would maybe be better for CPU use. But my mobo controls the CPU fan speed beatifully.

EDIT: Plus the cost is reaaally low compared to the quality of these things.

that its probly why you are not haveing issues you are not useing them at 12
les power = less stress on the coils = les chance of meltdown

I have one of the originals as it came with my Scythe Mugen 2 CPU cooler. Just like in this picture, they are 4 pin, not 3 and the original is virtually silent as my case fans are much louder. It moves enough air, but I think I will get one of these for a 500 RPM boost. Or I could by the extra bracket arm and do a push/pull with the CPU cooler.

I love the slipstream and especially the one they included with the Mugen 2, it is pretty silent and moves a good amount of air. I am thinking of getting another for the Mugen 2 to have a push pull config.
