The WING UV Blue case fans are premium quality, UV reactive, ultra- quiet, dust and water proof cooling fans for gaming enthusiasts. This series features a unique bearing with winglet fans blades and low starting voltage. Only the highest quality materials have been used to manufacture this state-of-the-art cooling fan. Control the fan RPM speed according to your desire using the supplied voltage regulator. To add to the silence fan mounts replace traditional screws and are made of high quality, ultra-soft silicone which stop vibrations from the fan motor from traveling into your PC case.

  • newegg Nanoflux Bearing (NFB) The Nano-technology composite ensures lowest abrasion and extreme durability (MTTF 100’000 hours). Compared to other Magnetic bearings this technology allows the impeller to be detached and thus the fan blades can be cleaned easily.
  • newegg Nanoflux Bearing (NFB) Compared to Sleeve and Ball Bearings Unlike the cost-effective sleeve bearings which tend to leak oil or costlier ball bearings which are noisier and prone to damage, GELID’s Nanoflux bearing uses magnetic flux to limit contact and friction between the bearing and the shaft. High precision self-lubricated material eliminates oil leakage. The result is an ultra quiet, long life bearing.
  • newegg Fan Speed Control The RPM speed of any fan can be controlled from full speed to low speed manually according to your preference using the included voltage regulator. This product is suitable for all high RPM fans and regulates between 5V and 12V.
  • newegg Rubber Fan Mounts Included rubber mounts have been designed specifically to deal with fan-induced vibrations and are an ideal alternative to standard fan screws, leaving vibrations 100% decoupled from your PC case, ideal for building a very quiet or virtually silent PC.

5 out of 5 eggsBest case fan I've ever purchased

Pros: Ultra-quiet, amazing air flow, reliable

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: "Nanoflux Bearing" sounds like marketing drivel, but it delivers on its promises. There is no discernable mechanical noise from this fan whatsoever, just the sound of air running through it -- and it pushes a surprising amount of that.

Mounting is not as bad as other reviews here have made it out to be. The rubber grommets just need a good solid push to pop them through.

I bought this case fan the last time I built a PC from scratch, back in 2009, and it has served admirably.

This past week it started making noise like it was going out, but it appears it was just some bad dust accumulation. The fan blade pops off the assembly pretty easily, so you can take some canned air to every nook and cranny of the unit. Did that and it's back to its usual silent operation.

Even if I'm wrong and it is in fact on its way out, 5 years is a great lifetime for what is typically a throw-away part from other manufacturers. It's definitely getting replaced with another Gelid fan.

Pros: Extremely quiet and easier to install than what others made it out to be. The rubber plugs just needed a good pull and they popped right into place.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGelid serving the cooling business

Pros: Pros- Quiet, One of the few UV fan choices in the market, comes with rubber fan mounts for quiet case use if its not on a radiator. the Blue tint fan is what makes gelid a recognizable fan

Cons: Gelid as a smaller company and high end on cooling performance, it comes at a cost as imports cost a bit. Albeit having bought it during promotion period as well as the fact that I have shop runner, it decreases the cost of the fan, but there are only a select few of fans the general majority are willing to pay for at some price point.

Other Thoughts: I was recommended this fan by a forum member to use. I debated on how i wanted to light up my case in the sense of water cooling, chose to go with UV reactive route. The fan can be removed from the impeller for easy cleaning. the fan generally is easy to work with and comes with a voltage fan speed regulator with each fan to control the speed. great fan to work with.

4 out of 5 eggsStrong/Cool/Quiet but can't stand abuse

Pros: These are stronger-than-average fans where you can control the speed, and they're not too loud on the highest setting. I bought these as a replacement to fans that had low air circulation and also had LED blinkers on them that I found to be really annoying. These worked well for 2 years on a computer that is almost always on. I put them on the highest setting and the only sound was a slight hum. I had some overheating issues with my previous fans and switching to 2 of these fans solved the problem.

The rubber "screws" seem like a cool feature. When I purchased this product I was hesitant at first, but they are extremely tight and snug and sturdy so my fears were alleviated. I don't know exactly what they do; I don't see it how they're any different from my previous metal screw fans. Perhaps it really does make the fan run quieter from less friction with the case.

Cons: The computer I put these in are in a poorly ventilated room that gets extremely hot, so I let them run constantly on the highest setting. I almost never turned the computer off either. I guess these fans weren't built for such extreme use. One fan started dying after 2 years of this kind of abuse. My computer started making a loud squeaking noise and I quickly found out that one of these fans were dying. There was nothing on the fan I could tighten to try to repair it, and cleaning the fan with an air can + wiping it down with tissues didn't help. It actually still worked and moved air and didn't seem like it would come apart, but I couldn't stand the noise and had to replace it. To their credit, one of the 2 fans I put in is still going strong and I don't plan on replacing it until that one goes too.

The rubber "screws" are a little difficult to put in, but it's meant to be one of those "set it and forget it" things so it shouldn't be much of an issue once you get them in properly. Two points of advice regarding the screws: (1) be patient and plan out in advance which way you're going to place them and (2) the rubber is very strong and sturdy and WON'T rip if you pull it and stretch it thin - you might need to do this to help fit for certain holes.

Besides one fan dying, I only had 1 real negative issue about the fans, and it's about the speed changer. The knob itself works fine, and you can change the settings easily, although since you leave it inside the case, it's not so convenient to open up change the speeds frequently. I left mine at the highest setting constantly so it didn't really bother me. My gripe is that the connection to the speed changer doesn't snap into place, and is a very loose connection. When I first installed the fan I had issues with the power disconnecting because the cables kept coming undone. I ended up using electrical tape to hold the connections together. This was my only real problem with the fan, and the reason I knock off an egg from my review. Everything else about it was great.

Other Thoughts: If your stock fan just ain't cutting it anymore, this is probably a very good upgrade for you. This is an above average fan and you can control the speed on it. I recommend tweaking the speed to a sound level you can tolerate (for me it was max!) and then just leaving it inside.

But if you have a hot environment like mine and plan to use the computer often, you might need something stronger than this. I replaced my dying fan with a Delta and it is much much louder, but it's also cooler and feels like a more solid construction, so hopefully it will stand up better to the abuse I am putting it through.

5 out of 5 eggsGelid is great!

Pros: Great quality, I love the switch to control the fan speed. Quiet for normal computing and turn it up for gaming/performance.

Cons: I wish the RPM's could go higher, need a little more power to cool my Q-Pack case

Other Thoughts: This fan is being used as an exhaust fan for my Q-Pack micro ATX case

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely quiet

Pros: VERY QUIET

Comes with speed controller

Comes with rubberized mounts to reduce vibration, no tools requires

NFB mounting, can easily remove fan blades for cleaning.

Cons: Bit difficult to get the rubber mounts in place the first time, process got easier with repetition.

Other Thoughts: I bought this fan because I've been building an extremely silent rig for bitmining/torrenting while I sleep in the same room. I have four of these running at max rpm in an Antec P183 with 2 Radeon 6970s, and so far I can hear the graphics cards' fans before I hear these.

My room is extremely quiet, I have double windows and thick concrete walls, so you can literally hear a clock ticking (which is why I have a digital clock). With these fans, as long as I keep my graphics card fans to under 70% speed, I can't even tell that my computer is on.

Despite being so silent, these fans still move an impressive amount of air. Four of them has kept my entire case to under 50 degrees, with my GPUs running slightly hotter at 62 degrees after mining for hours.

5 out of 5 eggsNice and quiet

Pros: Absolutely quiet when at low speed, and only the sound of air moving when ramped up. Much quieter than the stock case fan it replaced.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Thankfully no built-in LED to worry about.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly pleased

Pros: Fans move A LOT of air. Can turn up to about 75% and still be silent. I have 3 of these in my case and considering I had never heard of GELID when I got these, I did like the specs that came with them, and they successfully made a positive impression upon installation.

Cons: Fans can be heard at max speed, but move so much air its amazing and can run fine at slightly lower speed with adjustable fan controller (included).

Other Thoughts: Intel core i7 Gulftown extreme 6 core processor @ 4.0 ghz
24 GB patriot viper extreme DDR3 @ 1600 mhz
Dual 160 GB intel 320 series SSD w/ RAID 0
Corsair 750w PSU
