Micro center Antec 120mm 3.99 fan bearing type?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I can't find the information anywhere. Are the 3.99 fans at micro center by Antec sleeve or ball bearing? I'm thinking ball bearing but don't know for sure. Thanks.

At that price for Antec I'd guess Sleeve bearing.

Yup, I'd probably guess sleeve too just based on the estimated life span. IIRC the real tricools with ball bearings retail at at least $15 probably $20. Original price of the link says $10.

This is what the picture is of though which seems to be only 140mm.

i didn't even know the tricools had a sleeve bearing type.

they only use single or double from my recollection.

what i can tell you is that these fans come from antec 900s.
now if you can figure out what the antec 900 tricools are....

That's what I thought. They were cheaper because they are molex and replacement fans. I thought they only use bearing.

I think you're right, tricools all ball bearings, however, either the picture is wrong, or those are not tricools, at least not according to antec's site. The picture according to antec is the 'twocool' which uses sleeve bearings.

Real tricools look like this, all clear instead of part black. Also notice the bigger motor.

Damn it. I hope they are not sleeve. I picked these up for a future water cooling build. Don't want to sell them now....

Does anyone else know how to tell?

For anyone wondering, they look like this, so I think they are double ball bearing like the rest
