Be quiet! Builds 80 mm, 92 mm Pure Wings 2 Fans

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 6 comments

Be quiet! adds two fans to its arsenal.

Fan-maker be Quiet! has announced that it is expanding the Pure Wings 2 series with two new fan models. One of the new models is an 80 mm fan, while the other is a 92 mm unit.

The 80 mm fan is 25 mm thick and can spin at speeds of up to 1900 RPM. Noise levels at this speed are said to be 18.2 dBA, along with a static pressure of 1.85 mm of water. The 92 mm unit is also 25 mm thick and also spins at 1900 RPM. It is a little louder, at 18.6 dBA, and pushes up a little less water with a static pressure of 1.65 mm of water.

The company has priced the 80 mm fan at €8.50, while the 92 mm unit will cost just a bit more at €9.40. We've reached out to be Quiet! for more information on availability and U.S. pricing. We'll let you know when we hear back!

    Why is he getting down votes? I'd like to know what the 'water' means too...

    mm of water is a unit of differential pressure1 mm of H2O= 9.8 Pascal

    So then given the difference pressure produced by these fans. What does this level of presure make them suitable for? Is it just a case fan or is it suitable for other applications such as cooling a radiator used in liquid coolers or heatsinks used for CPU cooling?

    Thank you narcissitic. I still don't know what that means. Ah to be ignorant.

    How have they managed to develop a larger fan that spins just as fast while managing to be both noisier and less powerful? What are the airflow statistics for them? Otherwise I don't see the point of the larger model…
