German power supply company Be Quiet this week announced a new fan series that it's calling the Pure Wings 2. The company claims that by adding two extra fan blades, it's increased airflow and air pressure while maintaining a nearly inaudible noise level, and recommends the Pure Wings 2 for both water- and air-cooled setups.
Be Quiet is promising an 80,000-hour lifespan thanks to 'high quality' rifle bearings and the fan is available in both 120mm and 140mm variations. These are priced at €10.90 and €11.90, respectively. If you're looking for something a little smaller, Be Quiet is launching 80mm and 90mm versions later this year, though pricing and specific release dates were not discussed.
It's not clear if the Pure Wings 2 series will make it to the United States, but we'll keep you posted.
Haha good one, very good one. On the serious side I wonder how they perform, I'm still using the stock fans on my Thor V2 and I'm looking for quieter solutions
There have been fans with many different numbers of blades for years.
