Hi

Just noticed some new fans from Antec, could they be replacements to their current Tri Cools?

Anybody have any experiences with these? Maybe a review would be in order?

Cheers

Thanks for posting -- they seem to have all the hallmarks of quiet fans: low RPM, lots of curved blades, curved motor support struts (so the trailing edges of the blades are not badly obstructed), and they add a new twist. They look like the mounting holes are made from soft(er) dampening material than the frame?

With the nine blades and small hub they remind me of Slipstreams. Looks like translucent plastic blades, though, which usually wobble a bit, right?

The 120mm high and low speeds sound pretty promising -- 600 and 1000 RPM!

Finally seem like a true effort,
I wonder if these will become standard for their cases.

Yes, the blades do look translucent which is not so good. On the other hand, the tips of the blades have ripples in them -- which may help, or not?

Doesn't seem to be any reviews around yet.

Any chance of SPCR getting a hold of some for a review!? :)

I think (more like hope or pray) this release calls for an updated 120mm SPCR roundup.
