<div class="quote-block"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Bionic fan of Noise Blocker immediately before the launch</span><br><br>
In cooperation with distributors and alternate.de caseking.de starts off this week, the sale of the new bionic Noiseblocker fans. This is even before the official launch over the next two to three weeks. The new fan series is the result of a research project that was funded by the Federal Ministry for Research and Technology. The special feature of the new fans: the new bionic technology makes the air flow more quietly.<br><br>
The new fan series from Noiseblocker comes under the official name of the NL were encountered in the trade. The series consists of six different models of size 120 mm. Four fans cover the speed range of 800-2400 rpm. Two more fans complete the series in the PWM area. The suggested retail is 16.96 € or recommendation 17.95 € for the two models with PWM control.</div>

<div class="quote-block">With the new bionic fans keeps the fans a whole new technology enters the market. The largest source of noise of modern high-quality fans are swirling in the air stream. These are created when cutting through the edges of the blades when they rotate the air. The new Bionic wing design solves this turbulence, reducing the largest source of noise audible.<br>
The basic operating principle of the so-called loop rotor was researched by Dr. Rudolf Bannasch bionics and developed. The application was subsequently carried out by implementing Noiseblocker. The basis for this was a research commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Research and Technology. The task contains more applied research with the ultimate goal of development of the quietest fans of the IT world.</div>

<div class="quote-block">We carried out the research in-house development lab Noiseblocker. The laboratory is one of the few development laboratories in Germany, which is among other things, with zero-DB-measuring chamber and special test and measurement equipment for the development of products designed especially quiet at the limit of the audible. There was a delay in development, it most recently when the new technology as far as the volume of air flow reduction that were previously covered themselves audible noise of the fan. This additional development of additional fan-made components required. Electronics and storage systems have been redesigned. Specific frequencies of the frame were moved with the help of measures from the sound design. As a result, an IT high-tech product on the market, which was based on bionic principles of action and research methods and purely developed in Germany. Together with the described development of the other components represent the new fans in almost every detail the top of the current IT-axial fan technology. <a class="bbcode_url" href="http://www.tech-review.de/include.php?path=content/news.php&contentid=15380&PHPKITSID=8809bdd3c3843c0829b6287631fcf4a1" target="_blank">via</a><br><br><b>The official sales start with nationwide offer in trade is planned for mid / late August.</b></div>

Bionics studies on the aerodynamics of bird flight carried out in collaboration with TU Berlin yielded insights and new ideas on minimizing turbulent drag at the wing tips. The consequent development of these ideas led to a novel shape for propellers, patented worldwide as the Bionic Loop Propeller.<br><br>
The new shape reduces energy consumed and noise, especially in heavy-duty propellers</div>

Interesting find. I wonder how much 1 of these fans will be <img alt="wink.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
edit: Never mind I see it <img alt="rolleyes.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif">

Interesting we will soon see how it preforms. A bit costly, 18€ for a fan to me isn't worth it unless it could push a crazy amount of air at a very low noise level, which we will never see.<br><br>
Notice how the 2nd graph stops at 1200 rpm, so what happens to the fan when it is spinning at 2000+RPM? My guess it sounds like any other fan....Loud <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">.

Ive been expecting something new from NB (or BlackNoise, rather). They do good work; looking forward to trying one.

im waiting on what the aircraft industry already has a multi-pitch blade.<br>
we'd use it like:<br>
under temperature usage, the high temp would angle the blade deeper for<br>
more flow and when temp is achived, they would recede to a flatter pitch.<br>
the flatter pitch then could aid in noise canceing.<br><br>
in the boating industry we used standard prop shapes, until a design was<br>
pushed for higher rpm and deep pitch props called "chopper props". the<br>
design also deflected "wash or eddie" current that devlope on steep pitch<br>
blade angles.<br><br>
the "rosette" design on the outter perimeter could also incorporate a pitch<br>
to follow the streaming gaps in between the blades. the gaps are also<br>
noise generators. the hoop can fill the gap with an air-energy and cancel<br>
the osilation in between the blades.<br><br>

What's the static pressure for this fan?<br>
Will there be an 140mm version of this fan?<br>
Last, but not least. Will there be an 3pin version?

This will definitely be interesting. I have 14 NB Multiframe M12-S2 fans and I love the silence. I think it will be hard to top those fans, as NB already has some excellenty performing material, but lets see. <img alt="tongue.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/tongue.gif">

I read the first post and it did not have the static pressure info. All it shows is the air flow measurements. But thanks anyway.

These are now for sale at overclockers.co.uk. they are about the same price as a GT, the PWM ones cost a little more. I am tempted but I don't like OCUK cost a lot for P&P.

Wonder if they'll make any 200mm or 230mm versions. Would love to use one of those large ones as a front intake for the Bitfenix Prodigy

I am cautiously optimistic. Noiseblocker makes outstanding fans but Noctua's recent offering has me skeptical. I question the static pressure especially. NB, I'm pullin' for ya. Supersede the Multiframes and put any doubts to rest!

these are meant to be case fans, there will come a different pressure-optimized version in the next months....

<p>As much as I want Noiseblocker to supersede the multiframes, I would hate to have to replace all my current fans :(</p>

B12-P : 800-2000 rpm, <28.4 dBA, 132.4 m³/h<br><br><br>
so B12-4 is the best to get for use on a controller? or is it louder at the same rpm as the slower fans

<b>Listen To Remix</b> , I feel you concerning cost to upgrade. More likely I'll bump down my current fans to the media comp and testing side projects. These fans add up!<br><br><b>Elohim</b> , for me they are one in the same. Filters require good or better pressure to get through and my case fans are filtered. Not applicable to everyone, I understand.<br><br><b>ihatelolcats</b> , based on their other numbers, I believe that is the maximum noise at 12v. I'd say a controller is a good idea it the round scales well.

NoiseBlockers probably one of the most underrated fan company's out there....

yeah, they seem to be awesome from tthe comments i've read from guys who bought them. The only downside is that due to the blade design a pull setup on a heatsink/rad seems to be more noisy than a regular fan. so only use it as push fan or with a shroud....
