Included with the fan are the following compliments:
- Ultra-Low-Noise Adaptor (ULNA)
- Low-Noise Adaptor (LNA)
- 3 to 4 pin adaptor
- Fan Screws
- Adaptors for 140mm Mounting
The fan without any adaptors has specifications of 1200RPM, 110.3 cubic m/h (65 CFM), and 19.6dBA. Not bad at all. Using the LNA, the specs are reduced to 900RPM, 83.7 cubic m/h (49 CFM), and 13.2 dBA. Finally, with the UNLA installed, specs drop to 750RPM, 71.2 cubic m/h (42 CFM), and 10.1 dBA. Ultra low noise? You wouldn’t even be able to hear it unless you put your ear on the fan!
The fan screws are used only if the fan were to be installed in a 140mm mount. The vibration compensators (silicone mounts) are used otherwise. The 3 to 4 pin adaptor allows the fan to be plugged into a standard 4 pin molex connector, rather than the 3 pin motherboard header.
One thing not mentioned in any of the features is the power cable of the fan itself. It is covered in a material that not only looks great, but also absorbs noise in the case for a quieter overall computing experience.
