Surely one would need number before being interested in a fan? But for now, it certainly sounds promising.

This would do well for... what?

Radiators don't really need linear airflow - the casing of the rad tunnels the airflow already. Case fans also don't really need linear airflow. They just need to get air in, and get air out.

Seriously, I don't particularly see the point...?

So are you saying you will have double penetration? 4 mintues and you stole it from me

I agree with rickysio, when you want something to be air cooled turbulence is your friend so why would i want a linear (i dont think its good enough to say laminate) flow fan? The only time I can think of that being useful is if whatever you are cooling, the back of a GPU PCB for example, is at a right angle to the fan.

My thoughts exactly. I really want to think of a use for these, but other than having one in the roof and floating a balloon on top I can't come up with anything.

Only spec I can see is 0.33A which means they'll be loudish but the design should make them good for radiators and tower cooler, especially in push-pull. I'm trying to persuade them that make decisions to do triple pentration kits.

If we're talking about case airflow - laminar is better (moves more air in given time period). If we're about heatsink airflow, then it's the other way around.

love the name.

i think use of this is in cases that you want to direct where the air end up. with normal fans, the air spreads out too much. with these, you will be able to place one further away from the graphics card intake, trusting its directed wind to work its way into the graphics card.

As there's normally a fan at the front and one at the rear.. Will there be a spitroast edition?

Too far?

So I've spent some time thinking about it, and honestly? Floating 3 balloons above your radiator should be a pretty cool party trick.

Jokes aside, pretty much I think the only use is to direct focused air across passively cooled cards.

But if you go for passive cards, you go for silence, not this type of 0.33A loud-ish fans.

Besides, all one needs is a 120MM diameter tube, and any normal fan pumps out nearly laminar airflow!

I used to have a 60mm delta fan with a similar angled grill on the other side (which made the entire fan almost a cube), and while it was pretty direct flow, that might have been due to the stupid rmps that that fan put out, truly a screamer.
It eventually met its end when I managed to get a finger too close. Damn thing cut right to the bone before the blade snapped.
