Scythe Announces Gentle Typhoon Fans
Scythe Co., Ltd. presents the new Gentle Typhoon case fans developed by the Japanese Nidec Servo Corporation. Eight versions in two different sizes (92 and 120 mm) with different speeds will be placed on the market at the same time.

All eight versions have a newly designed impeller which has a high performance with very low background noise. All fans are manually balanced to guarantee operation with less vibration.

In comparison to comparable fans the Gentle Typhoon is characterized by a pleasant noise level. The innovative design of the fan blades were designed to avoid disturbing air which means less noise at high performance.

The motor of the fan uses a patented double vibration reduction structure which also prevents vibrations produced by the fan.

She's leak testing, i'll let the pictures do the talking for the most part but 1 thing I will say (much to my surprise) is that cable management was the easiest of any case i've ever had, I did have to cut a great big hole in the PSU area to route them behind the drives and mobo tray but after that very simple mod i've literally, for the first time ever, been able to build a truly clean machine. :D

All done now. All cables in, booted into windows first time no headaches.... just need to buy another keyboard to use it. >.<

Proper picture time!!!









Cleanest build I've ever done I think.:D

Looks smart mate, loving the green, think I might go for green next time my casefans need swapping out, makes a change from typical blue :)

so sleek, love the case :)

Looks very slick D-Cyph3r and the absence of worm drive clips keeps it looking very clean. I'm a sucker for green too :yumyum: Well done and congrats on such a sexy rig

love it :D

Cheers guys, it definitely came out better than I thought it would.

The only problems I have with are the fact that it's got Vista 64bit installed and it feels slow as heck compared to my XP/Intel rig and I cant, for love nor money, get rid of that vortex in GPU->T-Piece tube. I've practically had the case upside trying to shake any bubbles left in the rad and I cant leave the cap off the fillport while it;s running cus it just sucks in more air. :S

Don't know whether this would help much or whether it's safe to do so but try putting a few tea-spoonfulls of oil into the loop.

I notice you have the spiralling air bubbles leaving your GPU like I had. Mine only appeared due to the flow being split but it does settle down but if you want to speed that along then you try what I did and put a cable tie on it (the wrong way so it does lock) this makes the flow faster through that part (bernoullis principle anyone :) ) and this disperses the bubbles more letting them stay in the res more. No need to do it tightly just a little pressure is enough.

Lovely case.
