In Win Intros Aurora: the First Case Fan with Wireless Remote and Daisy Chaining

In Win introduced the wackiest (and possibly the smartest) case fan we've seen at Computex this year, the Aurora. This is the first fan to support wireless remote control. It's also the first fan to support multi-unit daisy-chaining, so one fan's power input and control can be shared with multiple fans. This way, you can control each of your multiple liquid cooling radiators by simply pointing the remote at them.

As simply a fan, the Aurora is a 120 mm spinner, with 800 to 1,400 RPM speeds in PWM mode, and 2,000 RPM in high-voltage mode (12V). At 1,400 RPM, it can push 40.26 CFM of air, with a noise output of 23.7 dBA. The remote allows you to fine tune fan-speed (within the PWM speed range), set and switch between presets, and control the lighting. Each fan features two 6-pin power ports, with which you can daisy-chain multiple fans. Each fan ships with a connector.

Reeven Also Intros the Zephyros RGB LED Fan

Reeven also introduced the Zephyros 120 mm fan with in-built RGB LED.

Rosewill Intros the RAWP-141209 Washable Case Fan

That's right, a case-fan that you can wash...with water. Rosewill may have solved the biggest woe of enthusiasts without access to dry-cleaning fluids to clean their fans, with the RAWP-141209. This 120 mm spinner is washable with water. Its other chops are pretty decent, too - a Teflon nano bearing, 500 to 1,500 RPM speeds, PWM support, and 64.75 CFM of maximum air flow. While it's washable, it isn't water-proof. So don't get the one idea on every DIY liquid-cooling enthusiast's mind - to immerse their radiators into a large fish-tank.

Noctua Shows Off New A-series 200 mm Fan

Noctua's fabled 200 mm A-series fan is closer to market availability, with the company greatly refining its design. In its latest prototype, the fan features a new fiberglass impeller. Fiberglass is chosen over ABS plastic as it is 26% lighter. A 200 mm ABS plastic impeller would need greater torque on the motor to get going at acceptable speeds. The motor features a larger 4 mm-dia chrome-steel axis (33% more bearing surface), and SSO2 ball bearing. Other features common along Noctua fan prototypes, such as acoustic optimization along the frame, a stepped inlet design, and vibration dampening pads are carried over.

Noctua Also Announced 15 mm Thick 80 mm, 70 mm, and 50 mm Fans

Noctua is extending the A-series 15 mm thick form-factor to several other sizes, including the popular 80 mm, 70 mm, 60 mm, and 50 mm. All four come with 20 mm thick frame adapter, should you run into trouble installing them. Much like the slim A-series 120 mm fan, these fans feature acoustic-optimized frames, double ball-bearing motors, 5V and 12V inputs (including PWM controls), and frosted translucent frames and impellers.

Noctua Unveils a Prototype 120 mm Slim Fan

Noctua unveiled a prototype slim 120 mm fan. The fan is just 15 mm thick (25 mm is the most common thickness for 120 mm fans). The fan features a metal reinforced hub, to make sure the hub and its four support structures don't disfigure over time. The motor features double ball bearing. The frame features a design that minimizes noise from the whiplash of the impeller. The frame further features rubber padding along the mount holes, to dampen vibration. Noctua did not put out fan-speed and air-flow numbers for this fan.

Noctua Expands its 5V Fan Lineup

After introducing its first 5V 40mm fan 18 months ago, Noctua today presented 5V versions of its award-winning quiet NF-A6x25 60mm model. While the new NF-A6x25 5V runs at a fixed speed of 3000rpm, the NF-A6x25 5V PWM also supports PWM for precise, convenient speed control. Both models feature Noctua's proprietary AAO (Advanced Acoustic Optimisation) frames as well as sophisticated aerodynamic design measures such as Flow Acceleration Channels and come with a 6-year manufacturer's warranty. At the same time, Noctua announced that it will further expand its 5V line-up in the near future in order to meet the growing demand from industrial partners and DIY customers.

"5V applications are becoming more and more common in various fields, so it's no wonder we're seeing a growing demand for 5V fans," says Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). "For example, our NF-A4x10 5V is now being used in different home automation devices as well as network and storage solutions. What's more, it has become very popular among DIY users who run it on single-board computers such as the Raspberry PI or replace noisy fans in various devices such as NAS units, switches and DVRs. We've had lots of requests from all of these areas, so we are now starting to expand our 5V range with the new NF-A6x25 5V and 5V PWM."

AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition Incorrect Fan Speed Issue Being Fixed

AMD's ambitious Radeon Sofware Crimson Edition drivers are seeing its first user experience issue in the form of a fan-speed bug. The driver, in some cases, spins graphics card fans up to 100%, and in others, the fan-speed is locked at 30% regardless of load. Over the past weekend, AMD acknowledged the issue and is tasked with a hotfix driver scheduled for release later today.
