D.F. Storm, a New Fan by Enermax, Offers 3,500 rpm Rotary Speed and Features the DFR Tech

The Enermax manufacturer launches its new product – the 120 mm D.F. Storm, which got its name due to high rotary speed (3,500 rpm in the most powerful Turbo mode, 2,800 rpm in the Overclocking mode and 2,200 rpm in the Performance mode). Due to the presence of an APS switch one can regulate speed without efforts; and the LED detector indicates the speed mode chosen. The novelty features the 263 m³ air flow at the 38 dBA noise level, the 11.131 (mm-H2O) static pressure, as well as pulse width modulation.



The MTBF figure claimed equals to 160,000 hours. Heat-stable components of high quality substantially contribute to this factor. The blades are constructed in a particular way to ensure high productivity under severe conditions. The DFR technology applied diminishes dust volume and extends the fan smooth operation term.
