Features    [ Edit | History ]

The Gentle Typhoon 120 mm fan series produce especially high static pressure combined with optimized fan blade design. They are fitted with double ball bearing and boast a life span of up to 100.000 hours at 35°C. To further reduce noise, a newly developed motor with drive train, disposing a special double vibration reduction structure, is deployed. Added dampening rings further reduce vibrations effectively.

High Performance

The Gentle Typhoon achieves high airflow volume and low noise with the newly designed impeller, enabling silent cooling of the latest devices which run very hot.

Silent Operation

The Gentle Typhoon has a different type of tone. The fan propeller is designed to reduce the disturbing frequency fan noise to human ears.

Innovative Technology

The newly designed motor and motor support mechanism of the Gentle Typhoon uses a double vibration reduction structure. The new support mechanism uses coil dampers to greatly reduce vibration.

+Quiet for the speed
+Great pressure
+Ball bearing so it should last.
-Not PWM
-Some speeds(fan controller) are louder than going just a bit faster, but these are not the only fans that do that.
I think these fans are great for the price.

They are not as quiet as lets say Noctua NF P12's(the sound is subjective to each user), but at the same speed(fan controller or 50 ohm resistor) they are as quiet if not quieter and perform a bit better.

If they had PWM I would fill all my systems with these things.

Real shame they do not stay in stock too long.

Great quality. Moderately quiet.
At first I bought 2 of these for my water cooled pc. Was so impressed that I bought 4 more. Now I understand why some people like them so much especially for water cooling. They push a lot of air through my rads. I tuned them with Speedfan to run u 600 RPM when the PC has a low use and u 1100 on load. Quiet even on load.

Experience: 1 Days
Amazing and super quiet
None at all
I just went and grabbed these fans today. OMG are they so amazing. I use them to replace the turbines supplied by Corsair for the H80i and I am now at peace since I can't hear anything in my PC. I plan on ordering more for my rads when they get here. Top dollar for top performance. Cheers!

Moves lots of air. Relatively quiet.
It's quietness was overhyped.
I bought these fans because I wanted quiet fans that still performed well. From what I read online people made it seem like these would be super silent fans. That is definately not the case. However, considering what speeds they are spinning at and the amount of air they are moving it is still an impressive noise level. The noise to performance ratio is still outstanding, compared to previous experiences.

moves lots of air and quiet
Great fan for the price considering it moves a lot of air and its quiet. Its great when used as a case fan or heat sink fan.

-Silencieux (pour cette vitesse)
-Haut CFM
-Déplace beaucoup d'air
-Certaines personnes peuvent trouver ca plus bruyant
Le ratio bruit et performance est excellent pour cette fan, j'en ai acheté 2 pour mettre sur mon corsair h100i, tout marche à la perfection.

- Surprisingly quiet.
- Excellent air flow.
- Good static pressure.
- Solid build, long life.
- Very ugly wiring.
- Closed screw holes.
- No PWM versions.
I just purchased six of these, three to go in my case and three to go in another. I can't believe how quiet they are running at the full 12 volts. Not silent by any means, unless you have some really fantastic sound proofing in your case, but way quieter than one would expect from 1850 RPM fans of this size. The only major complaint I have is the wiring which do not have any sleeving. Considering the price, they could have at least have used ribbon style of wiring like most good fans have instead of three separate individual wires. I had to braid mine to keep them from getting into places they shouldn't. Anyways airflow is great and temperatures went down significantly with these (ambient temp hasn't changed). Will definitely be buying more of these down the road. Definitely the best 120mm fans I've ever purchased.

Experience: 0 Days
Excellent static pressure while maintaining a low noise with no humming. Bearing is made to last alot longer compared to ceramic bearings and other oem crap brands like Sunon and Delta
Dead zone.
This is supposed to be one of the best static pressure optimized fans out there, although it comes at a hefty price I would recommend putting 2 of these in a restrictive heatsink or radiator.
Grab a bundle deal of these here for a few dollars off.

Fantastic static pressure
Better looking than noctua
Annoying to mount to a rad
I bought these without first initially believing all the hype about them. After weeks of research and digging up reviews in foreign languages(found it difficult to find comparisons to fans I've handled before)I figured it was time to make the leap and bought 3 to fit into my fractal R3. when used with a fan controller they scale significantly better in terms of air/noise than the preinstalled fractal 120mm fans and can in fact push more air while being quieter than them. I also found when installing one on my coolit eco ALC cooler to replace my eye sore noctua NF-p12 it seemed to do a slightlly better job of pushing air through the rad while doing it more quietly(marginally so however).

Overall fantastic fan that should be standard in every computer that has at least some sort of fan control. My only complaint is mounting these to rads as the screws can be hard to come by.

To save future buyers some time for coolit and corsair all in one setups the require 30mm 6/32 machined screws.

Quiet, moves a lot of air.
Loud at highest speed. Though pretty much all fans will be loud at 1850rpm.
Currently using 2 for my H100. Really quiet and i can feel a lot of air being exhausted. Does a great job.
