Phanteks Unveils Prototype Fans with Multi-faceted Blades

Phanteks showed off its yet to be named upcoming lineup of fan prototypes with an enhanced "multi-faceted" blade design. These blades, made of fiberglass, work to minimize the bulk of the noise caused by the whiplash. Inspired by vortex-dampening wingtips of modern airplanes, the blades are curved perpendicular toward the edges, and maintain a 0.7 mm gap from the bore of the frame. The fans feature a "6-phase motor," although the company didn't mention what kind of bearing they use. The edges of the frame (near the mounts) feature vibration dampening silicone cladding. The motors feature daisy-chaining cables, so you can chain up to three fans and mount them onto a radiator with minimal clutter. The fans come in 120 mm and 140 mm, each with two thickness-based variants - 25 mm thick, and 30 mm thick. Phanteks doesn't have a concrete launch timeline other than "later this year."

More likely the blades are composed of Fibre reinforced plastics, as fibreglass alone is labor intensive and would cost a lot more.

This is what I am waiting on, but it could possibly be awhile before it is released so I may have to just move back to 120mm. Apparently, the performance is really good.

There is a 140mm version. going up in size is harder, as making it larger is not easier. With there new design.
It was shown at computex

Thanks, I hadn't caught that news and really hoped they would be able to.
