Cryorig unveils QF140 Performance, Silent fans
January 19, 2017 | 10:53
Cooling specialist Cryorig has announced the impending launch of a new family of 140mm fans, based on its existing QF120 120mm fans and including a Silent variant with reduced rotational speed.
Designed around the QF120 but in an increased 140mm size, Cryorig's QF140 family includes the same features of its predecessors. The company makes much of its proprietary 'Quad Air Intake' system, formerly known as the Quad Air Inlet, which adds air intake holes on the four of the frame in an effort to increase the total air output of the fan over a standard solid-frame design at the same rotational speed. The fans also include the company's 'High Precision Low Noise' (HPLN) dynamic fluid bearings to reduce noise, with vibration transmission to the case further dropped through pre-installed rubber dampers.
The QF140 family is split into two distinct models, Cryorig has announced: The QF140 Performance features minimum and maximum rotational speeds of 600 to 1,850 revolutions per minute (RPM) with a claimed top output of 128 cubic feet per minute (CFM) at 38 dBA noise levels; the QF140 Silent offers rotational speeds from 200 to 1,000 RPM, dropping its peak output to 42 CFM but at what the company describes as 'near inaudible' sound levels.
Each fan includes pulse width modulation (PWM) speed control, while the retail packaging includes a Molex power adaptor, a mounting screw kit, and a registration card for the company's extended six-year warranty period. Both models are priced at $14.99 (around £12 excluding taxes), Cryorig has confirmed, with UK availability yet to be confirmed.
