Scythe releases Slip Stream 120 DB Fans with Dual Ball Bearing and long life span

  Scythe releases Slip Stream 120 DB Fans with Dual Ball Bearing and long life span 20.05.2015, Oststeinbek (Germany) – Japanese cooling expert Scythe expands the 120 mm case fan portfolio with the announcement of the new Slip Stream 120 DB axial-fans. The new line up includes five regular models with fixed fan speed as well as one PWM-enabled model. Special highlight of the series is the Dual Ball Bearing, which has been developed in Japan. Thanks to the new bearing an intense life span increase to 350.000 hours (MTBF) has been accomplished. The successful “small hub & large fan blades” concept was initially introduced with the first Slip Stream series and is handed down to the Slip Stream 120 DB. Increased flow area and airflow could be achieved at the same fan speed, thanks to this concept. Slip Stream 120 DB lineup includes six different models, including a PWM-enabled version, which offers a wide fan speed range starting at 300 RPM and going up to 1.300 RPM. The regular models with fixed fan speed start with the 500-RPM model. This case fan operates at incredibly silent 7,2 dBA and assures steady airflow with 41,62 m³/h (24,50 CFM). A great combination between noise and performance is offered by the 800 RPM model, as it moves 68,24 m³/h (40,17 CFM) at really silent 10,7 dBA. Users requiring more performance or planning to use the Slip Stream 120 DB fans in combination with a fan controller are able to choose between the 1.200, 1.600 and 1.900 RPM model. S...

Noctua presents two asymmetrical 140mm CPU coolers

Noctua presents two asymmetrical 140mm CPU coolers Vienna, May 18th – Noctua today announced two new additions to its portfolio of premium-quality, quiet CPU coolers with 140mm fans. Whereas the NH-D15S is a high-compatibility single fan version of the elite-class dual tower model NH-D15, the NH-C14S replaces the proven top-flow cooler NH-C14. Both the NH-D15S and NH-C14S feature an asymmetrical layout in order to avoid blocking the top PCIe slot. “140mm coolers have become the default choice for enthusiasts who seek superior cooling performance for overclocking or near-silent operation, but these tend to block the top PCIe slot on many current motherboards” says Mag. Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “With the NH-D15S and NH-C14S, we’ve updated our successful 140mm dual tower and top-flow coolers with asymmetrical layouts that ensure the best PCIe compatibility.” Tailored to provide superior RAM and PCIe compatibility, the NH-D15S is an asymmetrical single fan version of Noctua’s award-winning flagship model, the NH-D15. Thanks to its asymmetrical design, the NH-D15S clears the top PCIe slot on most µATX and ATX motherboards. At the same time, the single NF-A15 PWM fan setup and recessed lower fins guarantee 100% RAM compatibility with memory modules of up to 65mm height. Users who have sufficient room can also upgrade the cooler with either a 120mm or round 140mm fan on the front fin stack for further improved performance in dual fan mode...

Scythe presents new Ninja 4 CPU Cooler

 Scythe presents new Ninja 4 CPU Cooler 11.05.2015, Oststeinbek (Germany) – Japanese cooling expert Scythe announces the official successor of Ninja 3 Rev. B CPU Cooler. Ninja 4 comes with some major technical innovations, including the increased performance and reduction of overall weight by 180 grams. Wide range compatibility to the common sockets from AMD™ and Intel™ is assured, which is very typical for Scythe products. Ninja 4 stays true to the core concept of the Ninja series, by keeping focus on passive and semi-passive cooling capabilities of the tower-cooler. To further underline this core concept, a new fan with additional features has been introduced. The GlideStream 120 PWM fan has been equipped with a special fan controller, allowing users to switch between three different fan speed ranges. Low mode has been tuned for extremely silent operation, where PWM control range varies from 300 to 800 RPM at virtually inaudible noise levels from 4,0 to 12,5 dBA. Medium mode suits most user purposes, as it covers a wider range from 300 to 1.150 RPM and offers the best performance to silence ratio. The last mode has been implemented for users seeking more performance, since it offers the maximum fan speed range starting at 300 and ending at 1.500 RPM. Supplied GlideStream 120 PWM fan has great influence on the Ninja 4 design in addition, thanks to its grey fan blades and black fan-frame. Scythe has made modifications to the structural design of the Ninja 4, where t...
