NZXT Launches Next-Generation 200mm Enthusiast Fan

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 12 comments

NZXT adds a new fan to go along with the gaming case it announced at the end of last month.

Hot on the heels of the release of its Phantom 630 full tower gaming case, NZXT has announced a new addition to its line of PC fans. Dubbed the FZ-200, NZXT is calling it its most ambitious 200mm fan yet.

 

The FZ-200 features an airflow rating of 103 CFM, which is a 15 percent increase over previous generation fans from NZXT, and a noise rating of 20 dBA. It operates at between 500 and 900 RPM and features new standard 154mm spacing compatible with the Phantom 820 and the Phantom 630. It's also got sleeved cables for improved cable management.

The FZ-200 is available in an LED and non-LED option. LED colors include blue, red, green, white and orange. The LED model will set you back $20.99, while the non-LED FZ-200 is $17.99.

    Why sleeved cables? It would be even better, simpler, smaller and cheaper if they used ribbon cable.

    I had to return one of their fans. I thought it was 200mm but it was more like 198mm. Now I'm using a Bitfenix Spectre fan.

    My previous build had a $180 NZXT case. But its cheap plastic bezel that broke, its cheap USB ports broke, its cheap fans that buzzed and its cheap fan LEDs flickered, its cheap packaged PSU had a cheap power switch that stuck, before the cheap PSU itself died in a matter of months. Good thing it was priced right. </sarcasm>

    To make a long story short, it was my first and last NZXT product.

    All of these comments are interesting. I havent been a customer of NZXT until recently but I decided to go with the H2 case for a customer to build their new system and the quality was outstanding. I'm definitely looking into using more NZXT products in the future.

    My point exactly.
    But little inexperienced kids don't get it and will keep on raging on me for no reason whatsoever, lol. Come on, kids, "BAW" some more! You delight me by doing so! >: )

    Master Chen, I don't think people are down voting you because they disagree with you as much as they don't understand your comments and therefore don't find them to be contributing to the discussion. After reading all three of your posts, I still can't tell if the first was sarcastic or not, I still can't tell how you actually feel about their products, and I can't make head or tail out of your following posts! Haha, maybe this is where just plain text is lacking, and we all need to work a little extra harder to be clear. =]

    Best wishes,
    Luke

    I think the coolermaster fans push more air for the sound they make. I just bought some so I hope that is the case.

    I just got the phantom 820 for a custom build and like englandr753 I like nzxt cases. They are a great company that has a great custom service. I had painting the bottom panel and was letting it cure for 24 hours before I put the clear coats on. Well my 7 year old nephew was looking and touching it that morning and when I went to add the clear his finger prints was showing all over it. Which is my fault, I should had clean it first. Didn't think about him going in to my work shop and then touch it. Well I got some paint thinner and I left it on to long and it started to eat through the plastic. I email nzxt about buying a replacement panel and they sent me one with shipping for free. That a makes a great company in my eyes.
