Spire debuts 80mm to 140mm X2 Nano-Tech bearing fans

Posted on Wednesday, December 05 2012 @ 19:20:16 CET by

Spire introduced a bunch of new X2 Nano-Tech fans today. These new models feature nano-bearings and are available in 80mm, 92mm, 120mm and 140mm, with and without LED & PWM. The 120mm model will be immediately available, the other sizes will start shipping in January 2013.
We are proud to introduce our new X2 branded fan series with Nano-Tech bearing. X2 fans with Nano-bearing offer a more silent, reliable and durable solution for the most demanding situations.

Traditional fans with oil seal bearings have serious wear with a relatively short service life as the bearings can easily overheat which results the impeller jamming or pcb overheating. X2 Nano-Tech fans are made from nano-zirconia powder as main material and a collocating special nano-particles lubricant to guarantee an exponentially longer life. The average service life is more than 70,000 HRS.

The Nano-bearings are considerably quieter than Ball-bearings (2-3dBA) and they are also far easier to assemble. Another advantage is that the impeller's centre can be much smaller, which means that the fan blades can be made larger which increase the air flow. X2 Nano-Tech fans are equipped with soft anti-vibration corners that can easily be removed if required for custom fitting. For example when building into the front of a chassis with limited space, just pull out the rubber corners and mount the fan with standard self-tapping screws. X2 Nano-Tech fans are available in sizes 140mm, 120mm, 92mm, 80mm with PWM and/or LED in blue or red colors.

  • Less friction, easy start up
  • Silent (less noise than sleeve/hydro- and ball-bearing fans)
  • Lower start voltage at 3.8V+ where generic fans start from 5V+
  • Curved fan blade design for higher air pressure
  • Longer life time, 70.000 up to 80.000 life hours
  • Easy release of fan motor and impeller for dust cleaning
  • Removable soft anti -vibe corners (silicon rubber material)
  • 5 year manufacturer warranty

    Compatibility: The X2 Nano-Tech fan series can be applied in a myriad standard PC/CE applications due to the standardized sizes.

  • 140mm (w LED & PWM) USD 21.99 / EURO 16.95
  • 140mm (w/o LED & PWM) USD 17.99 / EURO 13.95
  • 120mm (w LED & PWM) USD 17.99 / EURO 13.95
