This new CRYORIG XT140 is a high performance PWM fan and is 13 mm thick and has a 140 mm diameter. It makes use of the CRYORIG’s built in Acoustic Vibration Absorbers and features the HPLN (High Precision Low Noise) bearing. This helps to bring about the optimal noise to performance ratio.
Engineers at GELID Solutions go slim and have created two slim profile fans (120x120x15.8mm) with
surprisingly high cooling performance.
The “Slim 12 UV Blue” fan comes with an UV reactive blue impeller and has a fixed rpm speed of 1500. The “Slim 12 PL Blue” also comes with a blue impeller but includes a high-quality PWM control for a rpm range of 900-1600. Additionally the “Slim 12 PL Blue” includes 4 blue LED lights and an on/off switch mounted on the frame of the fan. Although both fans generate high air flow, they are very silent. The “Slim 12 UV Blue” has a start voltage of only 5 volts and 7 volts for “Slim 12 PL Blue” to start. The “Slim 12 UV Blue” has a 5-year supplier warranty and because of the LED lights the “Slim 12 PL Blue” has a 3-year warranty.
Phanteks have been working in the cooling market for almost 20 years, but relatively recently they decided to breach into the consumer space with the incredible PH-TC14PE. Receiving rave reviews across the industry, Phanteks have made a name for themselves in very little time by dethroning the Noctua NH-D14, which was regarded as the king of air CPU cooling for quite some time. If you were to obtain a Phanteks PH-TC14PE, you’ll also be provided with 2 PH-F140TS 140mm case fans. These fans are rated to have very high airflow whilst not making much noise, credited to their Maelstrom Vortex Booster design on the blades of the fan itself. We’ve received the blue version of the PH-F140TS, but it comes in black, red, orange and white too. Keep reading if you want to see if this fan is able to blow away the competition.
