Enermax has launched the flagship model of the T.B.Vegas fan series. The T.B.Vegas Quad is equipped with 48 diodes in four colours: Blue, red, green and white. The PWM controlled fans provide a wide RPM range which can be limited in three steps due to the new APS function. Last but not least, the patented Twister bearing ensures a smooth and persistent silent fan operation with 100,000 hours MTBF. The T.B.Vegas LED fan series is part of the Enermax gaming product line "Ahead of the Game".
With up to 48 diodes (depending on the model), the Enermax fans have a nice effect – even behind tinted acrylic windows or mesh panels. While reflex stripes on the blades create the characteristic curved rays of light, the single diodes can be controlled via an integrated micro chip to generate 5 LED effects. The integrated chip further provides a memory function. It will store the light effect which has been selected before the system shut-down. Three colour versions of the T.B.Vegas Single are available: Blue, red or white. With a 50cm wire, the button to select the lightning mode can be attached comfortably inside or outside the chassis.
The latest technological innovation from Enermax is the "Adjustable Peak Speed" (APS) function. A small switch on the fan hub enables users to change the RPM range in three steps. That way, the cooling performance can be adjusted easily according to the system configuration:
- - If you want a silent PC, you can limit the speed to max. 1,000 RPM ("Ultra Silent Mode").
- - For systems that generate more heat, the cooling performance can be increased by choosing the "Performance Mode" with 500 to 1,800 RPM. Within the selected mode, the fan is controlled automatically via pulse width modulation (PWM).
The patented Twister Bearing offers up to 100,000 hours MTBF. It is based on a simple, but effective principle: A metal ball inside the bearing gets magnetized and keeps the blades on the shaft. It is the only point of contact and therefore eliminates disturbing grinding or rattling noises. The sleeve is made from a self-lubricating material which prevents the bearing from drying out and ensures a durable and consistently silent operation.
For the first time, Enermax applies the characteristic frame of the T.B.Silence fan series in a LED product. The modular HALO construction enjoys a great popularity amongst do-it-yourselfers, because you can easily dissemble the frame, give it a new paint or modify it. The steel frame at the side with the punched Enermax logo is not only improving the stability and appearance of the fan, it significantly enhances the fresh air supply. At maximum speed, the T.B.Vegas Single generates an air flow rate of up to 129.09 m3/h.
The "Ahead of the Game" product range has been specially designed for modern gaming PCs. It covers different product categories and allows for high-performance and smooth game play. Enermax "Ahead of the Game" products are a choice for high-end rigs. The manufacturer offers a complete start-up bundle for the build of a performance-capable and at the same time durable gaming PC.
The T.B.Vegas Single fans in Blue (UCTVS12P-BL), Red (UCTVS12P-R) and White (UCTVS12P-W) are now available on sale at a MSRP incl. VAT of 13.99 Euro. Already in autumn 2013, Enermax has introduced the four-colour LED model T.B.Vegas Quad (UCTVQ12P).
The remaining three one-colour models with blue, red or white LEDs will also be on sale.
