Cougar Vortex Fans: the Secret of Success

Nowadays a lot of hardware developers employ Vortex fans from Cougar in the design of various PC components, including CPU coolers and graphics cards. Such demand is primarily explained by an elaborate approach to the fans' framework construction. Profound testing is not the last thing to contribute to the company's success. Indeed, since the launch date in 2011, Vortex line has been enjoying great popularity throughout the world and, especially, on American and European markets.

Therefore, Cougar has designed unique fan impellers that ensure a balanced correlation between such parameters as static pressure, noise level and airflow. The implementation of aerodynamic elements on the internal part of the frame in combination with the grooves on the impellers are able to promote for an improved airflow focusing; this is achieved due to the acceleration of airflow in edge area.

All Vortex fans are based on a hydrodynamic bearing that provides for the prolonged lifetime and …

Philips Launches BDM4350UC Monitor

MMD, within the framework of Philips Monitors brand, has recently launched a 43-inch monitor, entitled BDM4350UC.

Noctua Expands ‘A’ Fan Series

The line of Noctua’s A fan series has been enriched with three new models: NF-A9 92 mm, NF-A8 80 mm and NF-A4x10 5 V 40 mm. The triple is based on traditional SSO-2 bearings which provide for an optimal balance of lifespan (up to 150.000 hours) and noise level. In order to enhance the performance and reduce noise during operation Noctua equipped the fans with Advanced Acoustic Optimization frame, anti-vibration pads, and such technologies as Stepped Inlet Design, Inner Surface Microstructures and Flow Acceleration Channels.

Noctua NF-A9 model is an heir of a renowned NF-B9 version. It is available in two variations: NF-A9 PWM and NF-A9 FLX. The first one allows for dynamic alteration of operational speeds from 400 RPM to 2000 RPM; the other one offers three fixed speed indices (1050/1250/1600 RPM).

Noctua NF-A8 is a successor of NF-R8 model. It is available in three variations: NF-A8 PWM, NF-A8 FLX and NF-A8 ULN. The first fan is able to rotate at 450-2200 RPM speed …
