Damn it seem like a clone of the Scythe Gentle Typhoon, just on Tan and brown with some tweaks on the blades. The good thing is if its pwm it probably will drop really low, not like the Darkpower.

AFAIK their goal is to reduce the gap between blades and frame around 0.5mm, but they found that in the long run the blades tend to elongate (due to rotation, temperature and plastic properties), so that it's very risky reliability wise.

So they were developing a new plastic material for the rotor and blades, which now is almost ready for prime time: the 120mm and 140mm fans are expected later this year, to replace the F12 and probably the A14.

Corsair also announced some fans with maglev bearings, supposedly less noise?

Is magnetic an actual improvement or is this just marketing?

It's all just marketing until somebody relevant reviews the products :)
