The new Xigmatek XAF Series of 120mm system fans continues the company’s innovative design focus to provide advanced features and performance while maintaining excellent value to the end user. The innovative “waveform” shape of the fan blades on the XAF series aren’t just for show and provide real performance benefits. The XAF series also features a very high quality copper bearing system which extends the service life of the fan 50% over that of fans using regular ball or sleeve bearings.
A New Wave in Fan Design
The unique “waveform” fan blade shape of the XAF series fans were specifically designed to maximize airflow per revolution. The “waveform” shape, along with the minimized central hub, increases the surface area of each fan blade over traditional designs and delivers up to 15%-20% more CFM at comparable RPMs over normal fan designs. Furthermore, unlike traditional fans which act like an air scoop, the irregularly shaped wave of air that forms in front of the “waveform” blade helps to reduce the collection of dust on the fan blade itself.
• Innovative “waveform” fan blade designed for performance – The unique shape of the XAF series fan blades and the minimally sized central hub dramatically increases blade surface area and generates 15%-20% more CFM at comparable RPMs to traditional fans. More airflow equals better cooling performance.
• Dramatically reduces dust collection – Traditional curved fan designs act like air scoops and over time they collect dust over the entire blade which increases air resistance and decreases performance. The unique “waveform” fan blade of the XAF series generates an irregularly shaped pressure wave in front of the fan blade which helps to reduce dust collection.
• High quality copper bearing for long life – The bearing is the heart of a fan system. Xigmatek’s use of superior grade copper materials for the bearing system ensures up to 50% longer service life than regular ball or sleeve bearing designs. Greater reliability gives you peace of mind for your PC system.
• Innovative “waveform” fan blade design to dramatically increase airflow up to 20% over standard blade designs
• “Waveform” blade produces irregular air pressure wave at the front of the blade helping to reduce dust collection

Cons: Does not slice and dice and will not julienne fries for anything. Does not remove stains as well as oxiclean.
Other Thoughts: They look very nice. They can really move some air. They should be on some kind of fan controller as at full power they move so much air you hear the air moving pretty strong. Some people want totally quiet fans that move lots of air but air blowing makes noise for the mentally deficient out there. I keep my fan controller turned down to what looks like about 30% and they are barely audible. Waht I can hear is just wind movement. I could go lower and they would still cool but the noise is under my two apevia fans the came with my case so effectively I can not hear them. I find it hard to buy fans because their are so many conflicting reviews. I Like these they are the quietest and most powerful I have owned.

Pros: read cons
Cons: puralator is by far the worst delivery service. the driver never knocked at my door i live in an apartment/ house set up he didnt bother finding the right apartment it was to hard for him, so he just went to the mailbox and dropped the pick up slip in my mailbox. i know this because i was waiting for my delivery ALL day. i saw somone drop a slip in my box and thought that cant be the puraltor guy he didnt even bother walking up the stairs? i thought it had to of been the mailman but no it was the puraltor guy being lazy this is pathetic. then he scribbled the trackign number on the slip when i called purlator to tell them to reship my item i couldnt even give them the proper tracking number because of this worthless driver. i gave them my name and info and they said ok monday morning at 10 30 were goign to ship you your package i said fine. monday came and puralator was nowhere to be found. the day after they finally came at 4pm and said they couldnt make it on monday? wow just terrible cheap service from a cheap company. newegg get rid of them and use ups
