Coolink SWiF2 Fan Series Review



/ 5 years ago

At eTeknix we like to cover the full range of components for your computer and case fans are one of those things that are essential but rarely discussed for reasons such as; it is much more important to have a good CPU cooler than good case fans. However, that in itself is not quite strictly true as without a CPU cooler your processor will overheat within seconds but without a case fan you will struggle to remove any heat removed from the CPU and of course then no more heat can be removed. More simply put, it is essential to have good airflow through the case to remove the heat build-up else your CPU cooler won’t be able to operate.

While most people only buy the case fans that come with a certain case, there are lots of people out there who realise that this doesn’t always offer the best solution. If you buy a decent gaming case you would expect it to come with several high-powered case fans and if you bought a case for audio work you would expect it to have ultra quiet case fans.

That said there are some of us out there who are aiming to improve our desktop PC’s in all aspects and that most certainly includes cooling and airflow. Further to this, a few years ago cases only tended to have 1 case fan space at the back of the case just below the PSU which was designed to only remove the hot air and hope that colder air would take its place. This has dramatically changed and now in most cases there is space for a minimum of 3 fans if not 4 or 5 case fans and these tend to be the larger 120mm fans.

As we have recently tested the Coolink Corator DS and the Coolink Lapchilla you may have noticed that Coolink specialise in cooling. Today, we are looking at their take on the standard case fans. This review will be an overview of the SWiF2 case fan series.

    good review simon :)!that is some pretty decent performance shown to almost keep up with the very good Akasa viper fan!

  • gaetan

    great review, I am just searching for good fans, very helpful, thanks 🙂

  • dav532000

    Good review, nice looking fans, but when I googled them all I got was a 7 blade design not 11. Here – SWiF2-800 80mm 1100 RPM 3-pin Quiet Cooling Fan.

  • SJTelford

    Good spot dav532000, the 80mm and 92mm use the 7-blade design, whereas the 120mm use the 11-blade design. Maybe I should of made that clearer on the A closer look page, but you can clearly see it on the packaging page. Unfortunately it is very hard for us to test and compare 80mm fans, and even harder to test the 92mm fans as they only places we can mount those is onto cases and there are just too many variables for that.The Akasa Viper fan is rather good and if a fan can come close to that while running slower and therefore quieter it is doing a pretty good job.
