Prolimatech Spinning Up Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 Fans

Prolimatech has announced its new Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 System fan that moves air with a total of 17 blades.

Prolimatech has announced a new system fan -- the Ultra Sleek Vortex 12. This fan is a 120 mm fan that is supposed to offer better performance than traditional 15 mm thick fans.

The fan features a double ball bearing, a staggering 17 blades, can spin at speeds between 400 and 1300 RPM, and will make no more than 17 dBA of noise. All in all, that's pretty impressive for a slim fan.

There was no word on what the fan would cost, though Prolimatech did announce that the fan would have a lifetime of about 100,000 hours, meaning that it'll keep spinning for over a decade.

    How much air does it move?

    Awesome! I need this for my Corsair 400R. The H60 radiator doesn't allow normal fans to be installed next to it because of clearance.

    Perfect for micro ATX boxes.
    This size will allow you to put a extra fan just about anywhere.

    Always such a pain to find half height fans.

    Impressive for such a thin fan.

    Scythe has had thin fans for years(10mm), but not too much air flow at that speed.

    the newegg reviews say these things have been out since early june.

    that's okay we know Tomshardware is getting old and slow, just like my pet dog

    That's the 140mm version (which fits a 120mm mount). I'm fairly certain the 120mm version is actually new.
