Aerocool Joins Silent Fan Market with Dead Silence Case Fans

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 9 comments

Aerocool is introducing its dual-material Dead-Silence series case fans.

After recently launching its Dead Silence case (read our review here), Aerocool has also announced its Dead Silence series of fans. While normally new fan releases bring little new stuff to the table, this time around Aerocool surprises us yet again. The fans are made with two materials -- plastic and rubber -- but not in the typical way that rubber is used.

The rubber is actually implemented in the blade structure of the fan itself. The rubber is meant to reduce vibration and make the fans a little more flexible, supposedly making them quieter.

"The Dead Silence series stands for great products, providing outstanding performance at ultra-low noise level. Our new DS fan series brings innovation to the market and displays the potential of the Dead Silence series very well," stated Tony Lin, CEO of Aerocool Advanced Technologies.

The fans can spin up with a starting voltage of just 3 V, and they come with a special 7 V low-noise adapter.

There was no word on what the units would cost, though they will be available through select channels starting January 2014.

    16db and below is really quiet, though I'd usually go for something with more air pushing. Great for those quiet HTPC builders.

    robax91, You mean to say that you trust manufacturer's numbers on db? Case fans are NEVER as quiet as they are supposed to be.

    Yeah, so your build would end looking like this to get proper cooling

    I'd rather just invest in heatpipe coolers that can run components without a fan for 0 db silence. I wouldn't mind a heatpipe cooler for my mobo chipset and for my ddr memory, but neither are particularly needed to be honest.

    Wow, you dug up that old Puget system from 2009, lol... good one. Most people won't be running 4 quad core server processors (in series, water cooling), 16 sticks of ram, etc inside a ATX case, with the goal of water cooling the processors with the emphasis being on quiet and not cold as possible.

    Usually people comment on the product, not the users. You might need a new hobby if you commented just to talk down to someone. As for the DB, maybe Tom's will review them to see how quiet they are, but it's hard to find out when several parts of a PC makes noise. Even if they are 20-25DB that is still quieter than standard fans that are 25-30+ DB.
