Scythe Launches the Grand Flex 120 Cooling Fan Series

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 3 comments

Scythe’s new Grand Flex 120 series of cooling fans offers one range of four fixed speed models and another fifth range with PWM functionality.

Scythe has launched its new Grand Flex 120 cooling fans, a series of 120 mm axial fans that aims to be a successor to the company's well-received S-FLEX series and take it “to the next level in terms of design and performance.”

The Grand Flex 120 series features Scythe’s new “Sealed Precision FDB” technology for better lubrication and silent operation that utilizes high-grade lubricant oil between the shaft and the bearing that can withstand temperatures of up to 250°C. It is rated for a 120,000 hour MTTF (Mean Time to Failure).

The series also includes a new nine-bladed fan design with an indentation close to the center hub for more focused and concentrated air flow, a set of vibration dampers, and a 500 mm sleeved cable for use in larger enclosures.

The cooling fan series will be available in five variations to meet different users' requirements, including four fixed speed fans ranging from 800 – 2000 RPM and a PWM variable speed model.

    "bearing that can withstand temperatures of up to 250°C"
    'Cos as we all know, fan bearings can easily get that hot. Oh wait...

    The other day I went to walmart and saw large box fans for $20 while 120mm fans sell for $5-$20. What gives?

    You can buy cheap fans on newegg... they don't push as much, make a lot more noise for the same rpm, and don't last long. Case fans generally have to be more precise when manufactured since everything is much much smaller. Also, everyone buys box/standing fans, but only a small group is actually going to buy case fans. Size and price generally do not correlate.
