ADATA's gaming-focused brand, XPG, today announced that it entered a memorandum of understanding with Nidec Servo, to source the company's Gentle Typhoon series fans that are popular among PC enthusiasts. The company mentioned that its XPG Vento Pro 120 fan that it launched in November 2020, is based on the Gentle Typhoon's original design. The company also announced that Nidec fans will be included with several of the company's upcoming liquid- and air-based cooling products under development. The Vento Pro 120 is designed for high static pressure of 3.15 mm H₂O and up to 75 CFM of airflow, making it optimal for ventilating radiators.

"Nidec Servo is excited to be furthering its partnership with XPG to bring cutting-edge cooling technology to even more gamers and PC enthusiasts around the world," said Masayuki Mohri, President & CEO at Nidec Servo. "We look forward to strengthening our collaboration and combining our respective competencies in gaming products and motor and fan design, as we have done with the VENTO PRO 120 PWM, to deliver gaming products with exceptional cooling capabilities." "Nidec Servo Gentle Typhoon fans are well known in the industry and beloved by gamers and others for their outstanding cooling performance," said Alex Yin, Chief Gaming Officer & General Manager at XPG. "For us at XPG, our partnership with Nidec Servo is a continuation of our commitment to helping users up their game with products that perform at the highest levels."

为什么可以在中国购买带有Scythe商标的“温柔台风”粉丝。Scythe和Nidec Servo之间是什么关系?

Doesn’t quite look like they’re the same? The PR suggests they’re different and the Vento’s hub looks like it’s 2/3 the size of a GT

The Vento 120mm was launched in November, not the XPG Nidec 120mm fan. Two different products. The Vento was only based on the GT, but it seems XPG and Nidec are partnering up for the upcoming AIO from XPG. That's a good thing for sure.

Yeah, and as with all ball bearing fans they're rather grindy and "loud" at lower speeds. Still great fans though.

I have 8 of them in my system. Got them used. Changed bearings, cleaned and the motor noise is gone and more years to serve.

Small point about bearings. How to distinct a good or bad one. Almost impossible at home. It ain't only about lubrication, but how within specs they are. Often bad and written off batches venture back into black market and got mixed. So despite getting SKF or NKE ones(I am not even talking about china ones), you or your seller might got be scammed with a out of spec unit. At some loads due to size imperfections they start to whine... and that's life, just roll in an another one.

I didn't know that. I guess I'll start lubricating them balls :laugh:

Really? I don't hear that at all and I set them at 2.3 to 3.3 Volts (+/- 300 to 540 rpm) when browsing and such.

I stopped using the two I had as front intakes on my 240mm rad due to how noisy they were at ~500rpm. If it had been an even hum or something I would have been fine with it, but mine produced what I've since learnt is typical ball bearing noise: a semi-uneven, kind of grinding noise, with a frequency profile and dynamics that made it ever-present and really annoying. At rpms like that I expect a fan to be essentially inaudible. I'm definitely picky, but it's not an unreasonable ask IMO.

They're sealed bearings so you can't really service the bearings. However the motor assemblies will benefit from a shot of teflon oil or other.

Hmm, this is a repost. I swear this this was posted last month.

This. Its all about the quality of the bearing, a good new bearing will never need lubrication added. I've never taken apart a fan before but bearings play a huge role in full sus mountain bikes. There are (cartridge) bearings everywhere, suspension pivots, bottom bracket, headset, hubs and cheap bearings are often an issue. Essentially if a ball bearing is rough or making noise its pretty much done, either from the factory lube being flushed out somehow, dirt ingress, or just being shit and out of spec.

As for fans I've used a few Sanyo Denki ball bearing fans back in the Athlon X2 days that are super smooth and and just as quiet as hybrid type bearings Noctua and others are using.

I had used Gentle Typhoon before. The performance was outstanding, but at low rpm the grind noise was so annoying.

Just curious, which version did you have?
I only have the GT15's (1850rpm 3-pin)

@GorbazTheDragon: Just get A12x25s lmao, the bearings on GTs are really crap, but hey if they get nidec to fix the bearings, they'll be decent options...
If they sold them a bit cheaper sure. Still waiting for the black versions..and ThermalFake will NOT be an option.
