Thermaltake SWAFAN GT12 PC Cooling Fan Premium Edition Review

A Closer Look

There are a lot of great features on these fans, but durability is by far their key feature as far as I’m concerned. Since the fan blades are swappable, you can literally pull the blades off, wash them under the tap and dry them off, then put them back. Of course, this is going to deteriorate the axel grease too, but TT are on point here, and includes a nice tube of lubricant in the box!

The first set of blades are pre-installed on the fan, so it’s ready to use. However, you get the two additional sets included in the box too. One for high airflow, one for high air pressure, and a reverse airflow set.

Which one is right for you? Well, all of them! You can use these fans virtually anywhere, intake, exhaust, radiator, air cooler, anywhere, and you just change the blades to suit the scenario, but you always get a fan that has the forward facing aesthetic.

Should you forget which is which, they’re all clearly labelled on the front of the motor, as you can see, this is the Reverse High Air Flow set.

And then this is the high air flow design. High airflow is better suited to case fans, while the high pressure would be better suited to radiators and other coolers.

The quality is second to none, with an extremely robust design these are by far the most sturdy fans I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Thick frame, strong blades, no flex, and anti-vibration mounts on both sides too.

The back of the frame and the motor supports are all shaped to ensure smoother airflow. There’s also a short cable and splitter on each fan too, allowing you to daisy chain them or addthe included fan cable extensions as you see fit.

When you want to make a change, just push on the back of the fan blades with your thumbs and it’ll pop the blades out.

This allows you to easily clean the fan blades, get dust and debris out of the motor, relubricate the fan axel, and then just pop another set of blades on.

It really couldn’t be much simpler!

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
