Much to our surprise, ASUS is now also getting into the case fan market. The company announces its ROG STRIX XF 120 case fan will hit the market in April. This fan was first previewed a couple of months ago, it's a 120mm PWM fan without any bells and whistles.

The fan uses MagLev bearing, which promises 400,000 hours of operation, and spins at 250 to 1800RPM. The specification sheet says it offers up to 62.5CFM of airflow, 3.07mmH2O static presure, and a noise level of 22.5dBA at 1 meter. The fan blades have a grooved design with rounded edges and they're made from fiberglass-reinforced material.

Pricing is unknown. It's a ROG product so don't expect it to be cheap.
