Noctua Expands 5V Fan Lineup

Noctua today expanded its line-up of premium-grade quiet 5V fans with new 200, 140, 120, 92, 80 and 40mm models. The new 5V versions of the existing award-winning NF-A20, NF-A14, NF-A12x25, NF-F12, NF-A9, NF-A8 and NF-A4x10 designs will be available both in 3-pin and 4-pin variants, the latter supporting PWM-based speed control. All fans include a USB power adaptor cable that allows them to run on USB host devices, power banks or USB power supplies.

"We've seen a growing demand for 5V fans from our industrial clients, the 3D printing community and DIY customers who seek to replace noisy 5V fans in devices such as DVRs or network and storage solutions," explains Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). "Several years ago, 5V was a niche market, but today there are more and more devices using 5V fans and our PWM-enabled 5V fans give engineers unique options to increase customer satisfaction by using sophisticated speed control in order to achieve quieter operation."

Cougar Intros Vortex RGB HPB 120 Fans

Cougar today introduced the Vortex RGB HPB 120 mm fans in packs of 3, meant for 360 mm x 120 mm radiators. The fans are more optimized for radiators and heatsinks than case ventilation. The fans are characterized by a unique fan frame design, with guide panes that create a vortex at the receiving end of the fan, which Cougar believes, will increase the amount of heat picked up by the air, from heatsinks and radiators. At the front end of the frame (from which the fan draws air), is a silicone diffuser with 18 RGB LEDs.

Since these are sold in packs of three, the pack also includes an RGB LED controller dubbed "Core Box," with an RF remote control. This controller supports up to 8 fans, and up to four LED strips. As a fan itself, the Vortex RGB HPB 120 takes in 4-pin (PWM) input, spins between 600 to 1,500 RPM, pushing up to 43.54 CFM of air at top speed, with a noise output of 26 dBA (the company didn't mention at what speed). It implements a fluid-dynamic bearing (referred to as "hydro dynamic bearing" by the company). The company didn't reveal pricing.

Akasa Vegas is a Constellation of Illuminated Case Fans

Akasa at Computex, also unveiled several new illuminated case fans. The lineup begins with the Vegas series (not to be confused with a fan series of the same name from Enermax). The Vegas series come in fixed color options of red, white, green, and blue; characterized by spiral light-shafts from the LED studded frames. The Vegas 7 takes this design philosophy forward with contrasting light shafts in the opposite orientation, for a "kaleidoscopic" effect.

The Vegas R series is for those who prefer a uniform diffusion of light from the frame, and uses silicone diffusers over the monochrome LEDs (again, either red, blue, white, or green). The Vegas R7 and Vegas X7 series are identical to the Vegas and Vegas R series in design, but feature RGB LEDs. The Vegas AR7 is identical to both the Vegas R and Vegas R7, but with more advanced addressable RGB LED illumination. Akasa didn't put out details like the bearing type, or air-flow.

Alphacool Shows Off New Eiszyklon RGB Fans

German watercooling expert Alphacool's showcased the company's upcoming Eiszyklon RGB fans designed specifically for Alphacool radiators. They are capable of providing very high static pressure at the lowest noise level possible. The fans are built on a hydraulic bearing to ensure a longer life expectancy while the decoupled frames helps to minimize operating noise. The Eiszyklon RGB fans are offered in two versions. The normal Eiszyklon variant comes 21 RGB LEDs while the Eiszyklon LT variant has 15 RGB LEDs. Nevertheless, both variants utilizes a diffuser to spread even light around the fan.

Phanteks Unveils Prototype Fans with Multi-faceted Blades

Phanteks showed off its yet to be named upcoming lineup of fan prototypes with an enhanced "multi-faceted" blade design. These blades, made of fiberglass, work to minimize the bulk of the noise caused by the whiplash. Inspired by vortex-dampening wingtips of modern airplanes, the blades are curved perpendicular toward the edges, and maintain a 0.7 mm gap from the bore of the frame. The fans feature a "6-phase motor," although the company didn't mention what kind of bearing they use. The edges of the frame (near the mounts) feature vibration dampening silicone cladding. The motors feature daisy-chaining cables, so you can chain up to three fans and mount them onto a radiator with minimal clutter. The fans come in 120 mm and 140 mm, each with two thickness-based variants - 25 mm thick, and 30 mm thick. Phanteks doesn't have a concrete launch timeline other than "later this year."

Antec Shows off Prizm ARGB Series Fans

Both models feature 4-pin PWM input, hydraulic bearings, and around 32 dBA maximum noise output. The 120 mm model spins up to 2,000 RPM, pushing up to 45.03 CFM of air, while the 140 mm model spins up to 1,700 RPM, with up to 65.03 CFM air-flow.

GELID Radiant and Radiant D 120 mm RGB Fans Pictured

GELID debuted the Radiant and Radiant D series case fans at the 2018 Computex, in their 120 mm avatars. These fans are characterized by an innovative new impeller design with sawtooth edges along the business end of the blades, which act as chevrons, and work to minimize noise from the whiplash of the blades; and RGB LED illumination using 9 diodes. What sets the Radiant apart from the Radiant D is the latter's programmable lighting. There are sub-variants of both that include a black frame, or translucent, frost-white plastic. Both feature double ball-bearing hubs. The two also take 4-pin PWM input. The company didn't put out specifications such as speeds, air-flow, or noise outputs, yet.
