Zaward Generation 3 Golf Fan 120mm & 140mm ReviewWed, Nov 09, 2011 - 12:00 AM
Introduction – Generation 3 From Zaward
The Third Generation of Zaward Fans introduces a few new key components to maximize airflow while limiting the sound pressure, and profile of the fan itself. This is in the interest of the end user, so they can have the best experience possible with an adequately cooled system that doesn’t introduce excess noise into their environment.
Zaward’s new Generation 3 line of silent cooling fans comes in 3 sizes and 16 variations:
Zaward G3 Models:
Today, going on the test bench, we have the ZG3-120C & the ZG3-140C which are both spec’d to only produce a maximum of 10.8dB(A) & 11dB(A), respectively, in a sub <10dB(A) environment. Unfortunately, due to the limited abilities of our testing equipment, if these fans due truly perform as they say, we will not be able to get an accurate measurement below 10dB(A). That is, if the specifications of these fans are accurate.
This type of design is what you see with Hypro Bearings & Fluid Dynamic Bearings, but with a hollow shaft in the middle instead of a solid one. Most likely there are more secrets to this design that are just not publicly available.
