be quiet! presents Pure Wings 2 cooling fans
The German maker of power supply units and various cooling solutions be quiet! has announced the new Pure Wings 2 series of PWM cooling fans. The new fan line comes with various improvements when compared to the older Pure Wings line that include enhanced reliability, extremely low noise levels and excellent pricing.
The main new feature of the Pure Wings 2 series is the addition of PWM functionality that now allows users to control the fan speed over a 4-pin connection and through Pulse Width Modulation, either automatically or manually through the BIOS; you can also do this with the software that be quiet! provides. The fans can be attached to many surfaces or devices and provide an exceptionally long life of 80 000 hours due to the usage of a durable rifle bearing. Thanks to the inclusion of airflow-optimized fan blades that reduce noise-generating turbulence to a minimum, the Pure Wings 2 fans have very low noise levels and are virtually inaudible even under full load – the fans in the line generate between 19.2-20.2 dB of noise while working.
The be quiet! Pure Wings 2 fans offer four sizes – 80 mm, 92 mm, 120 mm and 140 mm. The two smaller fans operate at 1900 rpm, while the larger ones spin at 1500 rpm (120 mm) and 1000 rpm (140 mm). All Pure Wings 2 fans are available now for EUR 9.80 (80 mm), EUR 10.70 (92 mm), EUR 12.40 (120 mm) and EUR 13.40 (140 mm). The new fan line will be launched in North America in early 2016 so if you happen to live there you will have to wait a bit more.
