Thermaltake SWAFAN 12/ 14 RGB Radiator Fans Released
Thermaltake, which has become one of the indispensable brands of system collection enthusiasts, continues to offer new products for PC enthusiasts. One of the brand’s new product lines was Thermaltake SWAFAN 12/ 14 RGB fans.
The new fans, which were recently announced as part of the brand’s Expo event, are also taking their place in the market as of August.
I would like to talk about the features of the new series by stating that this time we are faced with a slightly different fan series than its counterparts.
Thermaltake SWAFAN 12/ 14 RGB Fan Features What?
The most important feature that distinguishes the new fans from their competitors is that they offer a replaceable fan blade design . In the series, which has two types of fan blades, users will be able to adjust the air flow direction by changing the fan blades in the package whenever they want .
The name of the fan comes from its changeable feature. As stated by Thermaltake, the name of the series was determined based on the phrase “Swap Fan” .
Having easily replaceable fan blades will provide another advantage to those who prefer the Thermaltake SWAFAN 12/ 14 RGB series.
Aside from having more control over the airflow direction, we will be able to clean the fans much more easily.
Those who collect systems will know, it is an important detail that the fans can be cleaned easily in order to maintain the system.
Now that we’ve talked about this important change of fans, we can now briefly look at other pluses and technical details.
Other Details for Thermaltake SWAFAN 12/ 14 RGB Fans
Refurbished Fan Blades
In the Thermaltake SWAFAN radiator fan series, we see the use of a renewed blade design. The 9-blade fans help provide a nice cooling performance no matter which version you choose.
We also see that there are two different versions of the product’s replaceable fans. Standard fan with black label and reverse fan with silver label can be chosen.
Black Label Standard Fan – Used for Air Intake
- Maximum Air Flow: 53.02 CFM
- Maximum Air Pressure: 2.58 mm H2O
Silver Label Reverse Fan – For Air Outlet
- Maximum Air Flow: 54.85 CFM
- Maximum Air Pressure: 2.19 mm H20
Detachable Hydraulic Bearings
Of course, the bearing part is also very important. A specially designed detachable hydraulic bearing design is used in Thermaltake SWAFAN 12/ 14 RGB series.
The bearings, which have passed strict tests, are also designed in accordance with the replaceable structure. In addition, Thermaltake states that users who buy the product are also given bearing oil in the package.
New Generation Lighting System
This seems to be the part that the players will love the most. Because the Thermaltake SWAFAN 12/ 14 RGB series has also been renewed in terms of lighting. A total of 30 ultra bright LEDs are placed in 3 individually addressable LED rings .
30 ultra-bright LEDs are used, 12 in the front , 6 in the middle ring and 12 in the rear. It is also possible to customize the addressable LEDs that support 16.8 million colors as you wish. You can also use TT RGB Plus 2.0 for this .
Assembly Design to Prevent Vibration
A special study has been made to ensure that the fans work silently and to prevent additional vibrations.
The fans using anti-vibration rubber pads provide better vibration absorption and help the fans rotate with higher stability.
4th Generation Controller
Thanks to the 4th generation software controller, the SWAFAN series provides a stable and seamless connection while synchronizing with TT RGB Plus supported products.
Let us remind you that the Thermaltake SWAFAN 12/ 14 RGB fan series , which comes with all these features, will be offered in two separate versions. As you can see from the 12 and 14 nomenclature, we will see 120 mm and 140 mm versions. I’m also adding a few technical specifications for these versions below.
