Scythe adds total of five brand new models to the very popular Slip-Stream case fan series due to market demand.
Long ago, the "small hub & large fan blades" design was introduced with the first Slip-Stream series. Following the success of the initial cooling line, Scythe have improved on the original design and unveiled the Slip Stream XT and Slip Stream XT PWM. As a result, a new frame design with notches has been developed to reduce the overall noise level. Also, both Slip Stream XT and Slip Stream XT PWM fans are supplied with a set of vibration dampers to reduce the vibration transfer to the PC chassis.
Slip Stream XT and the Slip Stream XT PWM case fans can be mounted using the native 140 mm pins as well as the widely used 120 mm ones. The big advantage for the users is the possibility to mount the new 140 mm case fans in PC chassis, which are equipped only with 120 mm fan holes.
Scythe Slip Stream 140 XT case fans should be interesting for users with fan controllers, or users with a demand for constant fan speed and steady airflow. Slip Stream 140 XT PWM also aims users who are looking for an axial-fan with a wide fan speed range in combination with the PWM feature. They especially suit to be used as additional case fans, a reliable replacement for a CPU Cooler fan, or second fan in a push-pull combination.
