Coolink SWiF2 1201
Another fan sponsored by Shazza
Very much appreciated
Never heard about this fan before, but I picked it out when Shazza gave me the option because I liked the higher number of blades and forward sweep. I think this is a good fan overall.
This is more of your standard package and comes with some bright green rubber case mount nipples as well as case screws. The fan itself seems very well cast and constructed visually, and the wires are sleeved with heatshrink type tube. That's not as flexible as regular braided sleeving, but better than bare wires.
It was spot on the exact same level as the yate medium which is good.
The 11 bladed impeller is an improvement in sound quality over your typical 7 blade types. This tends to smooth out the air/wind type noises to more of a constant. I particularly liked the noise qualities of this fan at lower voltages. I did not notice any apparent motor noises or resonance issues throughout the voltage range
CFM per RPM
The 11 bladed impeller was a good gain per RPM over the yate medium and produced roughly the same CFM as the yate did at about 80 RPM lower speeds.
Running around $15 a fan, this would be about average in value.
Not as good as the yate medium, consumes roughly 50% more power per CFM.
In general the fan performed roughly the same noise level as the yate medium with slightly better sound quality. It was roughly similar to the Arctic Cooling F12, except it wasn't quite as low in noise level, but it was a little more consistent throughout the voltage range..
A better than average fan for an average price.VIDEO LINK
