Prolima Tech Vortex Fan Review Round Up

Introduction and Specifications

 Prolima Tech Vortex fans

 

Introduction  

It's no coincidence that ProlimaTech, well known for their range of performance CPU and VGA cooling solutions, should also produce a range of fans.  Here we take a look at the entire Vortex range,  including the rather sexy looking Aluminium bladed 140mm model.   With the exception of the Aluminium model which comes fitted with red LEDs as standard, ProlimaTech offer 2 sizes and 3  finishes to the range, with both the 120mm and 140mm fans available in plain red, plain blue, LED red and LED blue.  On paper the fans offer high CFMs with varying dB-A ratings.  Lets look at the full tech spec for a better idea of what we have on offer to us.

i wonder if a small (1cmx1cm) square of bitchathayne/dynamat/ice&water shield (stuck on the back of each blade) would kill the reverberation of the aluminum fan quieting it down???
