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.

Xigmatek XAF-F1252

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.

2 out of 5 eggsNot so good

Pros: Good airflow, low noise, no annoying led.

Cons: Bought 4 of these fans in June 2013 from a different seller, 2 have failed me in last year that is 15% of the life time advertised and about half of the lifetime i would consider acceptable.
I have purchased 2 silenx fans as replacements, we will see how well they work.

Other Thoughts: Vantec and zalman have proven to be the longest lasting fans for me, if the silenx fans fail i am going back to them.

4 out of 5 eggsvery good but definitely not silent

Pros: Very good airflow. Moves around alot of air

Cons: not silent at all. Dont get me wrong they are not extremly loud but deffinitely noticeable if you have your computer up on your desk like i do. If you want them to be quiet make sure to gey a fan controller like i did.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful, Awesome, and Lethal

Pros: - Look super sick.
- Move plenty of air.
- Very quiet.
- No stupid LEDs.

Cons: - Ridiculously sharp.
- Will cut you.
- Will make you bleed.

Other Thoughts: Seriously though, I dipped my thumb knuckle too far into the chassis and the fan lopped a chunk of it right off. These are awesome fans that look great and perform even better, but beware that edge, gentlemen.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Have 2 of these connected to a fan controller as intake fans in a Fractal Design Define R3. Silent at low speed.

Cons: Makes annoying electrical/mechanical noise at full speed. Don't know if this has something to do with the fan or the fan controller.

Other Thoughts: Wonder if the PWN versions are any different.
