Thermaltake Announces TOUGHFAN TOUGHFAN 12 High Static Pressure Fan and Pure Series Duo Fans

Thermaltake, the leading PC DIY premium brand for Cooling, Gaming Gear, and Enthusiast Memory solutions, announces the TOUGHFAN 12 High Static Pressure Fan for ultimate precision and increases stability for users' high-end cooling needs. The TOUGHFAN incorporated a 2nd generation hydraulic bearing, ultra-tight tip clearance, and equipped with a reinforced-metal motor hub. The TOUGHFAN fan is a PWM controlled fan designed to perform at a maximum operating speed of up to 2000 RPM and is optimized for high static pressure while maintaining minimal noise.

Pure Duo 12/14 ARGB Radiator Fan comes in black and white color versions, is also a PWM controlled fan with two independent rings and nine addressable LEDs on each ring that allows users to switch among seven lighting modes. Moreover, Pure Duo can synchronize with 5 V RGB capable motherboards from ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI, and ASRock, to display 16.8 Million color combinations by editing lighting software supported by those motherboards.
Another PWM controlled fan, Pure A12/A14 LED Radiator Fans, on the other hand, has nine LEDs, which come in four fixed colors: red, blue, green, and white. Both Pure Duo 12/ 14 ARGB Radiator Fan and Pure A12, and A14 Radiator Fans are designed with a hydraulic bearing with a self-lubricating friction-reducing substance, which reduces noise production while improving thermal efficiency. The anti-vibration mounting system allows the fans to operate at the maximum fan speed of 1500 RPM providing minimal noise.

All three types of fans are cost-effective and allow users to choose according to their needs, whether they would love some RGB fans or just a simple high-pressure cooling fan.

Features of the TOUGHFAN 12 High Static Pressure Fan & Pure Duo 12/14 ARGB Radiator Fans & Pure A12/A14 LED Radiator Fans:
PWM Controlled Fans
Collaborate with the CPU to work up or turn down the fan speed to reduce CPU heat efficiently.

High Air Pressure and High Air Flow
  • TOUGHFAN 12 has a pressure of 2.41 mm-H2O with an airflow of 58.35 CFM.
  • Pure Duo 12 has a 1.72 mm-H2O with an airflow of 56.51 CFM, while Pure Duo 14 has a 2.24 mm-H2O with an airflow of 82.23 CFM.
  • Pure A12 has a 1.59 mm-H2O with an airflow of 56.45 CFM, while Pure A14 has a 2.05 mm-H2O with an airflow of 93.15 CFM.
Hydraulic Bearing with Low-Noise Design
All three types of fans are designed with a self-lubricating friction-reducing hydraulic bearing, which reduces noise production while improving thermal efficiency. The seal cap prevents lubricant leakage and extends the lifespan of the unit.

Anti-Vibration Mounting System
The In-mold injection anti-vibration rubber pads dampen the vibration of the fan allowing the fan to spin at higher levels without compromising noise levels. The fan is designed with 80% coverage for all corners, maintaining low noise levels when in operation.

Motherboard RGB Sync Ready (Pure Duo 12/ 14 ARGB Radiator Fans Only)
The fans are designed to synchronize with ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync, and ASRock Polychrome. The Pure Duo 12/ 14 ARGB Radiator Fans support motherboards equipped with 5 V addressable RGB headers, allowing users to control 16.8 Million Color lighting effects directly from the software mentioned above without installing any extra lighting software or controllers.

Seven Lighting Modes (Pure Duo 12/ 14 ARGB Radiator Fans Only)
Users can switch among seven lighting modes by clicking the controller to change modes.

4 - Color Selections (Pure A12/ A14 LED Radiator Fans Only)
Pure A12/ A14 LED Radiator Fans not only creates an aesthetically pleasing liquid-cooled system but also delivers extraordinary performance during operation. The fans are available in four colors to match with any build you desire.

Wish TT would make their argb fans 2000rpm as well. In my opinion anything under 2mmH20 is too low for high end cooling, unless it’s on a 360mm rad or above. The RGB’s still pretty though lol

Morally condemning one corporation over another is ridiculous and a shortcut to thinking, they all follow the same profit motive and are required to maximize that margin, and therefore are capable of behaving the exact Sam way as any other corporation.

Suggesting that Thermaltake was responsible for Caselabs' downfall is ridiculous as well... It's nobody's fault, but Caselabs' that they couldn't compete in the marketplace. I'll come right out and say that Caselabs' Chassis were way, way overpriced considering they were constructed of sheet steel panels that required no expensive tooling or dies to manufacture. They could all be manufactured with a laser cutter and a press brake, and yet their prices were through the roof. It's nobody's fault but caselabs that they couldn't keep production costs down and price their products more competitively. Having run a small stainless steel furniture manufacturing business that I grew into a medium sized business, I'm well versed in the costs of raw materials (especially alloys), powder coating, manufacturing costs outsourcing to China, shipping costs, etc, and for the life of me I could never justify the price of a caselabs chassis... They must have been going after 60% profit margins.... But anyway....

If you have a good idea in the business world, then you get a patent, and if you can't patent it, then you have no right to cry about someone taking the idea and improving on it.

I agree but they also have a lot of their own unique designs now despite blatently copying many others.

I have 3 of the older Pure 14's and they move more air...more in line with the new Pure Duo's.

I'm also glad to see normal mobo connectors...I have 3 different connections on Riiing Fans and now 2 for my Pure's...None of my Riiing's are compatible with the other but the Pure 200mm's are with their proprietary hub and my Pure 140's are aRGB 4 pin PWM fans.

Y'all can say TT is copying whatever.
Nobody has matched the subtle beauty of the Riiing series.
TT Duo's have effects that's unique to TT
The Pure's are run of the mill but come in sizes of 120mm, 140mm and 200mm.

Now I'd like to see a refresh of the Riiing series with PWM and aRGB connectors.

ToughFan 12 uses liquid crystal polymer like Noctua's A12x25. If they can imitate their performance at a much cheaper price without Noctua's legendary fugly colors, then that's a win.

Caselabs went out of business for other reasons like their razor thin margins and having prices increase for their raw materials. There was a lot of discussion about their closure on here for reference. Don't spread inaccurate information when there's a lot more to the story than what was mentioned.

Main reason for their margins to go away (unless you care to read through everything)
