has officially announced its Silent/TC/PWM series of fans, designed especially for enthusiasts keen on silent machines. All three version of fans will be available in 80, 92 and 120mm sizes.
According to the press release, the new Silent, Silent TC and Silent PWM fans will come with precisely balanced fan blades and Hydro Dynamic bearings that should give additional airflow without increasing the noise level. The new silent fans also come with bundled rubber fan mounts that should prevent vibrations created by the fan motor transferring to the chassis.
The Silent TC series automatically adjusts the fan speed according to the temperature, thanks to the implementation of an IC that is embedded in the fan's PCB. On the other hand, the Silent PWM series uses so-called Pulse Width Modulation, or PWM, so the fan's speed can be controlled by the motherboard.
All fans come with a five-year warranty and the price for Gelid's Silent/TC/PWM 80mm stands at €3.10/€4.70/€5.20. The 92mm will cost €3.70/€6.00/€6.15 and the 120mm will set you back €4.17/€7.00/€7.20.
This is how they look.
