Cooler Master Turbine Master Mach 0.8 fan



My first impression of the fan is that it's quite flimsy. The fan is made from shiny, flexible thin plastic and it just doesn't have the same quality feel as a Noctua fan. The "nose" piece of the turbine is not installed by default, perhaps because it's not compatible with some fan mounting systems. The product documentation makes no mention whether this round dome-like piece is purely aesthetic or whether it's designed to further enhance the airflow or lower noise.

The next photos shows off how frameless the fan design is, about half of the fan blade sticks out from the round frame.

One of the marketing features of this fan is that you can easily remove the fan blades for cleaning. Just like with Cooler Master's Excalibur fan series, you remove the fan blades by using your two thumbs to push the round piece where all blades come together away from the rotor. Removing the blades takes some force and I was a little worried I would break something due to the Turbine Master's flimsy design.

The fan has a total of 16 blades, quite a lot more than most fans have. Cooler Master says the high number of blades lets the fan produce more airflow than regular fans, even under low speed operation because they cover more area.
