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-F1253

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.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Pretty quiet, moves a good amount of air. Looks cool

Cons: Not really a con, but In my stupidity, I decided to mount it at the back of my case, and my machine runs 24/7 in my room. So now I have a computer nightlight that is somewhat bright. I have to face the other way to sleep

3 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: Moves a lot of air and has a unique blade design that is quite nice, however, you don't see the design when the fans are spinning.

Cons: The color of the picture, is not what the fan looks like when it spins up. The fan's copper fins with the white create another color. It does NOT give off an orange tone when spinning and while it is unique I would HIGHLY recommend that the LEDs be changed to orange because the product pictures are very misleading. It gives off a pink/purple tone to the lights and there is little to no orange in it. Also the 3 pin cable is a bit short and if you buy a larger case or would like to use a fan controller you will NEEEEEEED extention cables of some sort. In addition, please make the cable and 3pin adapter all the same color, why have a white plug and black cable? A bunch of little things took down the makings of a great fan.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for an orange fan, move along, as this is not the choice for you or your girlfriend who's favorite color is orange. Good air flow, however, the static pressure isn't great for radiators. Would really like Xigmatek to tweak these to have a great orange representation on this fan.

5 out of 5 eggsNICE

Pros: It looks great and is very quite. I replaced a broken cpu cooler fan with this and it looks beautiful, not to mention it looks amazing with a NZXT Phantom Newegg case( Black and Orange) paired with orange GSkill Ares 2133 right in front of it.
The orange with black trim blades are a nice touch

Cons: None really just wish it was orange LED and not white but thats what gives it a unique look to it.

Other Thoughts: Very nice fan and well built, a little pricey for a 120mm but you get what you pay for, performance and aesthetics.
