    Swiss ARCTIC COOLING today unveiled the new ARCTIC F Pro TC case fan series in 80 mm, 92 mm and 120 mm diameters. These fans are temperature controlled, each one has a temperature sensor on a 40 cm long cable that measures the inside case temperature. When the temperature in the case is from 0'C to 32'C, the ARCTIC F Pro TC fan speed remains at its lowest - 500 rpm and 400 rpm for the 12 cm model. Once the inside temp rises the fans start rotating faster. When a temperature of 38'C is reached they'll reach their maximum rotation speed of 2000 rpm or 1200 rpm for the 12 cm fan. This way an adequate case cooling is achieved according to ARCTIC COOLING engineers and noise levels are reduced to minimum. The ARCTIC F Pro TC fans come with a 6 year limited warranty. They are available now for a MSRP of US $6.50 / 4.90 Euro for the 80 mm, US $6.90 / 5.20 Euro for the 92 mm, and US $7.90 / 5.90 Euro for the 120 mm model.
    • ARCTIC F8 Pro TC 500 - 2000 RPM - 28 CFM / 47.6 m3/h - 0.05 - 0.3 Sone noise
    • ARCTIC F9 Pro TC 500 - 2000 RPM - 35 CFM / 59.5 m3/h - 0.05 - 0.4 Sone noise
    • ARCTIC F12 Pro TC 400 - 1300 RPM - 33 CFM / 55.8 m3/h - 0.05 - 0.4 Sone noise

    I'm looking for 92mm fans to replace the stock fans on my CM N520. i might look into these, but their measure of noise is weird. :)

    They are very quiet. Not sure about this specific model, but I used in the last 3 years AC fans and they were all quiet and crafty done. And cheap, too!
    This model seems a no-brainer at its price. Can't wait for it to show in stores so I can replace my case fans with some of these.

    Why. They are silent, not only in blade design but also frame design, they are damn good looking and it being AC you know they will last forever.

    Same could be said for the Noctua fans, but I'm enjoying their combination of performance and quiet. But temp control for a case fan would be great for some client's pcs.

    And honestly, I never get to do any gaming of late. Just too much else on the go. At least I can still crunch while away from the pc.

    Nice, now if they can make some 14cm and higher we will be good to go.
