Scythe Co., Ltd (Tokyo, Japan) announces three new 120mm fans. These new fans provide a better performance by integrating the higher "Static Pressure" feature. Unlike the common fans with 25mm thickness, the new "Ultra Kaze 120" comes with 38mm thickness. The slowest model (DFS123812L-1000) is specified with 1000RPM, 19,81dBA and 44,44CFM. Furthermore, it is designed for silent operation in a PC system. Other models of "Ultra Kaze 120" (DFS123812L-2000 and DFS123812L-3000) aim for enthusiasts who are seeking high performance and high airflow for their PCs. These fans are ideal and can maximize the performance Heatsinks that have a higher number of fins and a smaller distance between the fins. The following graphs show a comparison between the new "Ultra Kaze 120" fans, Scythe standard fans (supplied with Scythe 120mm CPU Coolers), and Scythe S-FLEX Version D (800RPM).

(Ed - FYI: Kaze pronounced "Ka" (like the Ford model) "Ze" (like you're saying the first two leds of Zed) translated into English means "wind", which seems appropriate for a 45dB, 133CFM monster! 30cm cables but only sleeve bearings though?)
