Post Subject: GELID Solutions Wing 12 120mm case fan
Posted on: Dec 8, 2008

We are all looking for the best when it comes to fans, and we have quite the interesting and new design coming from GELID Solutions, in the form of the Wing 12 120mm fan.



There are a few things that set the design of this fan apart from the rest, and the biggest one is the Nanoflux Bearing system in the fan. This not only gives you a frictionless and noiseless design, it also allows you to remove the impeller assembly from the frame so the fan can be cleaned easily. They have also made the chassis, motor, and blade assembly waterproof and dustproof. The second design cue is the wings on the tips of the blades. This helps move more air by channeling the air that hits the blades. The whole Fan blade assembly is UV reactive as well.






The Nanoflux Bearing technology works by using an electromagnetic field to keep the moving parts from touching. The parts are also self lubricating, so it eliminates any leakage of lubricants onto your systems vital parts.



The fan comes with a few very high quality parts, including 4 UV reactive rubber mounts for the fan to eliminate any possible vibrations, a small fan controller to adjust the fan speed, and the cable needed for the fan controller.



The fan can start and operate at a minimum of 5v, something that I have seen an issue with some 120mm fans that will only start on 12v. This is not to say that its not a 12v fan, because it is, but it can run on 5v. It has a very good CFM rating at 64.3 CFM, and has plenty of cable length at 500mm. The fan has a max operating speed of 1500RPM, and has a noise level of 25dBA. It also has something that you don't see often at all with fans, a 5 year warranty.

Overall, this is a mighty fan for the price, and with the warranty, its very hard to beat. I would recommend this fan to anyone looking for a quiet UV reactive fan that has a nice high CFM. These fans are available in both UV reactive green and blue, and in 3 sizes, 80mm, 92mm, and 120mm.


GELID Solutions

I would like to take the time to thank GELID Solutions for letting me review this fan, and I look forward to reviewing more of their products in the future.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask.

If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

Unfortunately I don't have a UV light, but there is a few shots of it under UV light on GELID's site.

aside from the aesthetics (who really needs uv) having a removable blade system is something i have been waiting for since the first fan i cleaned.


way to go gelid, i would have never noticed these manufacturers products if it wasnt for fusion!

They are actually a rather new company. They were formed and started in 2008.
