Japanese cooling-expert Scythe expands one of its key portfolio segments by introducing a new lineup of native 140 mm axial-fans. Scythe adds total of five brand new models to the very popular Slip Stream case fan series as a reaction to the market demand.

The successful design of "small hub & large fan blades" was originally introduced with the first Slip Stream series. Scythe made the effort to further improve the design for the new Slip Stream XT and Slip Stream XT PWM. In result, a new frame design with notches has been developed to reduce the overall noise level even further. In addition, all the Slip Stream XT and Slip Stream XT PWM fans are supplied with a set of vibration dampers to reduce the vibration transfer to the PC chassis.



Both the Slip Stream XT and the Slip Stream XT PWM case fans can be conveniently mounted using the native 140 mm mounting holes as well as the widely used 120 mm mounting holes. The big advantage for the users is the possibility to mount the new 140 mm case fans in PC chassis, which are equipped only with 120 mm fan holes. Thanks to this feature a higher airflow at a lower fan speed can be achieved!

Scythe Slip Stream 140 XT case fans are especially interesting for users with fan controllers, or users with the demand for constant fan speed and steady airflow. On the other hand, Slip Stream 140 XT PWM aims for users who are looking for an axial-fan with a wide fan speed range in combination with the PWM feature. They especially suit to be used as additional case fans, a reliable replacement for a CPU Cooler fan, or second fan in a push-pull combination.

Short overview of the models:
  • SM1425XT12SL: 27,2 CFM at 500 RPM, 9,6 dBA
  • SM1425XT12L: 43,5 CFM at 800 RPM, 14,3 dBA
  • SM1425XT12M: 65,2 CFM at 1.200 RPM, 23,2 dBA
  • SM1425XT12M: 92,4 CFM at 1.700 RPM, 36,4 dBA
  • SM1425XT12M-P: 27,2 to 69,93 CFM at 500 to 1.300 RPM, 9,6 to 24,7 dBA, PWM-Support
All four Scythe Slip Stream XT case fan models are available as of today with the MSRP of 9,00 EUR (excl. Tax/VAT). Slip Stream XT PWM (SM1425XT12M-P) can be purchased for 10,00 EUR (excl. Tax/VAT). For more information, visit the product pages of Slip Stream 140 XT and Slip Stream 140 XT PWM

Ugh, i almost got excited about them until i read "140 x 140 x 25 mm" :ohwell:

The magic number should have been 20mm (or below) :p

Did Scythe ever find a new US distributor? Their old US branch office (which was a separate corporation) went out of business about 6 months ago, so Scythe products have become increasingly hard to find in the US.
