S-FLEX Fan Series is equipped with Sony S-FDB Bearing which promises lowest noise level at highest quality and lifetime (150,000 hours).
- Genuine S-FDB Bearing for Ultra-Low Noise and Long LifespanThe Scythe S-Flex SFF80A is equipped with genuine S-FDB (SONY Fluid Dynamic Bearing) made by SONY corporation. S-FDB technology drastically eliminates the friction between the bearing and the shaft, which makes this fan nearly inaudible to human ears. Additional suction magnet optimizes the magnetic force balance within the rotor to achieve absolute silence. To even further achieve the absolute silence, the fan is equipped with the Linear drive IC for reducing electromagnetic noise. "S-FDB" structure also allows the fan to last up to outstanding 150,000 hours.
- Anti-Shock AbilityConventional ball bearing carries a point contacting structure for rotation. This gives a point supporting situations and dropping impact which can damage the ball bearing surface leading to irregular noise. The S-FDB carries a surface contact mechanism for improved anti-shock structure, which is 5 times stronger than the conventional ball bearing.
