Scythe Gentle Typhoon:  High RPM series

 

Up Close:  Packaging and contents

The Gentle Typhoons (GTs) come simply packed in plastic boxes with shelf hangers.  A clear front allows us to see the fan inside. The black sticker towards the bottom of the pack carries two very important messages

"Caution, do not injure yourself.  Fan speed is very high"

"Only connect to peripheral 4pin from PSU to draw power".

Can't help but think it's probably best to pay attention at this point, as manufacturers aren't generally in the habit of warning that their product can hurt.

A card insert supplies all the info you need with regards to the specification of the fan within.  The upper part of the insert gives details of voltages, RPMs, CFM, dBA etc, whilst the bottom section describes fan blade and bearing characteristics.  Aside from the fan itself the only other think in the box is 4xfan mounting grub screws.

Absolutely monstrous cooling, like that very much.

No I am never going to consider buying any unless I design a battery powered light aircraft and need an engine.

Good fans, not suitable for your normal rig though.

But you may need a pair of these to go with them

I think it's good to see how companies like Scythe are making server grade products available to the "general public"...

Good review too mate!
