DeepCool Intros Gamer Storm TF-120S and TF-140S Fans for Radiators

DeepCool today introduced the Gamer Storm TF-120S and TF-140S fan sets optimized for liquid-cooling applications owing to high static pressure, and a frame-design that's better suited for mounting along radiators. These fans are an evolution of the TF-series fans DeepCool debuted in 2015. The TF-120S is a 120 mm fan that comes in pack of four fans; while the TF-140S is a 140 mm fan, shipping in packs of three. Both SKUs include 4-port PWM fan hubs so a single PWM signal can power all fans in the set.

Much like the original TF-series from 2015, the TF-120S and TF-140S feature "double layer fan blade" design, which when combined with the "wasp waist" fan frame design work to increase air-flow and static pressure. The TF-120S spins between 500 to 1,800 RPM, pushing up to 64.4 CFM of air, with a pressure of 2.33 mm H₂O, and up to 32.1 dBA noise output at max speed; while the TF-140S does 400 to 1,600 RPM, pushing 97.03 CFM of air-flow, with 2.00 mm H₂O pressure, and up to 39.8 dBA noise output at max speed. The company didn't reveal pricing.

And Now, a Cyberattack That Uses Fan Vibrations to Steal Data: Air-ViBeR

Air-ViBeR is a new cyber-security vulnerability that uses changes in your PC's fan vibrations to sneak out data through an elaborate, convoluted method involving more than one compromised device. There is an infinitesimal and purely mathematical chance of this type of cyberattack affecting you, however one can't help but admire the ingenuity behind it, the stuff of Hollywood.

Created by Mordechai Guri at the Cyber Security Research Center at Ben-Gurion University, Israel, Air-ViBeR involves a compromised PC regulating its fan-speeds to alter the PC's acoustics rapidly, to relay data to an Internet-connected listening device, such as a compromised smartphone, which then converts those vibrations into ones and zeroes to transmit to the web. There's no way this method will transmit a your 100-gigabyte C: in a lifetime, let alone the few hours that your smartphone is placed on the same desk as your PC; but the attacker would look for something specific and something that fits within 4 KB (one block, or 32,768 bits). Guri demonstrated his method and wrote a paper on it explaining what he calls "air gap covert channels."
A video presentation by Mordechai Guri follows.

Thermaltake Riing Quad Radiator Fans with 4 Independent Lighting Zones Start Selling

Thermaltake today released to market the Riing Quad line of fans optimized for liquid-cooling radiator applications (high static pressure). The Riing Quad series was announced at this year's CES. The 120 mm triple-pack is priced at $177.72, and the 140 mm triple-pack at $160. Available in 120 mm and 140 mm sizes, these fans are characterized by four independent ARGB LED lighting zones (rings) adding up to a staggering 54 diodes per fan. The impeller hub has two of these zones, one at the outer hub cap and one along the periphery of the hub); while the frame has the other two zones, one along the bore of the frame, and the other along its periphery, pointing outward.

Besides this, the fans offer 40,000-hour hydraulic bearings, 9-blade impellers designed for high static pressure, and rubberized frame-mounts. The 140 mm variant spins between 500 to 1,400 RPM, pushing up to 60.17 CFM of air, at up to 26.1 dBA of noise. The 120 mm variant does 500 to 1,500 RPM, pushing up to 40.9 CFM of air, at up to 25 dBA of noise. Each of the fans in the pack takes in a 9-pin USB header connection to an included controller module. A single cable provides both power for the main function, and software control over speeds and lighting. The controller module is essentially a powered USB 2.0 hub that interfaces with one of your motherboard's USB 2.0 headers, and takes in additional power through a SATA power input. Thermaltake's TT RGB Plus app handles things on the software side.

EK Water Blocks Launches EK-Vardar Fan Multi-Packs

EK Water Blocks, a European premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is releasing multi-fan packs of its renowned EK-Vardar fans. Coming in dual and triple sets, these fans were developed in-house and first introduced in 2014. EK-Vardar fans have evolved several times into the EK-Vardar EVO 120ER/140ER Black BB fans with Extended range (ER) of PWM operation and a special Start-Stop function which brings a true 0dB experience for the absolute silent fan operation. The electronics of the ER EVO fan have been made so that the fan stops spinning if the PWM signal falls below a certain duty cycle value. This feature enables you to enjoy a totally silent PC, and it is also very useful for preventing radiator dust buildup in idling PCs and prolongs the lifecycle of the fan itself. BB in the name stands for dual ball bearing which proved having the highest reliability. The fans within the set have varying cable lengths to ensure the least excess cables for the best cable management.

EK-Vardar EVO BB is a high-static pressure computer cooling fan, designed and built primarily for highest-performance computer liquid cooling systems. It uses a dual ball bearing that proved most reliable in industrial systems. The Vardar EVO family of cooling fans carries the notorious name of a type of the cold northwesterly wind blowing from the mountains down to the valleys of Macedonia. It is a type of ravine wind, enhanced by a channeling effect while blowing down through the Moravia-Vardar gap, bringing cold conditions from the north to the Thessaloniki area of Greece. Most frequent during winter, it is blowing in the rear of a depression when atmospheric pressure over eastern Europe is higher than over the Aegean Sea.

SilentiumPC Announces the Corona HP Evo ARGB

Notwithstanding social media pictures of unsold Corona beer crates in supermarkets, sales of Dom's catnip are actually up. SilentiumPC made the bold move of launching a new product with exactly that name, the Corona HP EVO ARGB fans. Scientifically, corona is a layer of luminescent plasma surrounding a normal star, giving it an aura and the appearance of being larger than it is. SilentiumPC announced its first Corona-branded accessories back in 2018 as an RGB upgrade kit for its Sigma Pro fans. Corona became a fan brand unto its own in early 2019. With that out of the way, the new Corona HP EVO ARGB is a new family of fans in 120 mm and 140 mm sizes, which will be sold in single-piece and three-piece packs by SilentiumPC.

Design of the Corona HP EVO ARGB is similar to the Corona HP RGB from mid-2019: round frames with ring-shaped silicone LED diffusers, and opaque black fan impellers. What's changed is support for modern 3-pin ARGB. The single-piece SKUs come with just a 3-pin ARGB connector besides 3-pin DC fan connector (no PWM), but the 3-packs include an ARGB controller that puts out three channels. Both the 120 mm and 140 mm variants feature 50,000-hour rated hydraulic bearings. The 140 mm variant spins at 1,200 RPM, pushing 45 CFM of air. The 120 mm variant does 1,500 RPM, pushing 35 CFM. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Bitspower Rolls Out the Touchaqua Notos 120 Fans with ARGB Lighting

Bitspower today rolled out the Touchaqua Notos 120 fans. Available in single-piece, 3-piece, and 5-piece packs, the fans are optimized for ventilating radiators. These 120 mm fans spin between 800 to 1,800 RPM, with a noise output ranging between 25-28 dBA. The company didn't mention air-flow specs or bearing type, but rates these fans with a 30,000-hour operational lifetime. The frames feature rubberized vibration-dampeners, while the LEDs are located in the hub. The fans take in 4-pin PWM for their prime function, and 3-pin ARGB for the lighting.

The single-unit packs include just the fan, while 3-piece and 5-piece packs include fan-controllers and LED lighting hubs. The BPTA-DRGBMFC lighting controller included with the 3-piece and 5-piece packs takes in a single 3-pin ARGB and SATA power connection, and puts out eight 3-pin headers, with SMD buttons that let you cycle through presets. The BPTA-PFANMFH fan-controller module included with the 3-piece and 5-piece packs splits a single PWM signal among 10 downstream 4-pin PWM headers. It draws power from a SATA power connector. The single-piece, 3-piece, and 5-piece packs of the Bitspower Touchaqua Notos 120 are priced at NTD 310, 1,240, and 2,170, respectively.
