Press release be quiet! SilentWings® 3: Uncompromisingly powerful and quiet
Third generation of proven fan offers even higher performance
Glinde, 16. August 2016 - be quiet!, the market leader in PC power supplies in Germany for ten consecutive years*, introduces the new SilentWings® 3. The third generation of this proven fan has been revised and now offers even higher performance than its predecessor. During development be quiet! also focused on a simplified, flexible installation. All these improvements make the SilentWings® 3 the ideal choice for high-performance water and air-cooled systems.
Extensive technical improvements to the design
be quiet! has invested much development time to create the latest version of the SilentWings® fan. The goal was to improve the performance of the SilentWings® 2 and to enable a wider range of uses. The seven revised and optimized fan blades create an excellent airflow. The funnel-shaped design of the rubberized frame allows greatly increased throughput. These improvements result in an extremely high static pressure, which makes the SilentWings® 3 the perfect fan for radiators, heatsinks, and computer cases.
Minimum noise at maximum power
Despite its high performance, the SilentWings® 3 from be quiet! is almost inaudibly quiet: the 120-millimeter variant produces a sound level of 16.4 decibels, while the 140 mm model produces only 15.5 decibels. The highly efficient, three-phase 6-pole fan motor and the rubberized frame contribute positively to this: both parts reduce vibrations to a possible minimum. In addition, the advanced, high-quality IC motor control effectively prevents electrical interference.
New anti-vibrations installation system
For the SilentWings® 3, be quiet! has also developed a new installation system. The system doesn't just feature special anti-vibration properties, but also allows for an easier assembly. Thus the SilentWings® 3 can be mounted to coolers, radiators and to corresponding fan mounts in a PC case. Compared to its predecessor, the modular corners of the frame can be exchanged easier. Two included sets lead to a higher flexibility during installation.
Long lifespan and different variants
To make the SilentWings® 3 into an absolute high-end product, be quiet! utilizes an advanced fluid-dynamic bearing with a brass core. The combined technology in this fan allows a lifespan of 300,000 hours. This applies to all four variants of the two available sizes (120 and 140 millimeters): be quiet! offers the SilentWings® 3 in a 3-pin and PWM variant, and these are both also available as High-Speed editions.
The SilentWings® 3 fan is available today. The 120 mm variant is priced at $21.90 / £18.99 / €22.50 while the 140 mm variant will cost $22.90 / £19.99 / €23.50.
