First Impression

When I was first asked about reviewing the GELID Wing Series case fans, it took me all of a few seconds to decide. I love seeing companies take the inniciative and design something a little out of the normal. The Wing Series case fans fall into this category, they have a unique blade design which is suppose to improve their performance, along with a unique bearing design that will offer longer life and quieter operations.

Features:

  • Nanoflux Bearing (NFB)
  • Optimized Winglet Fan Blades
  • Waterproof & Dustproof
  • Long Lifetime (100’000 h MTTF at 40°C)
  • Silicone Fan Mounts
  • Fan Speed Control

The GELID Wing9 and Wing12 (they also offer a Wing8 – 80mm) case fans come packaged in a standard box that allows the consumer to see a minimal part of the rear of the fan, and a few of the accessories. Flipping over to the rear of the package, you will find a full list of the features and specifications.
Cracking open one of the boxes, we will see that Wing12 and its accessories are neatly packed in a plastic liner to hold everything in place during transport. Included in the package are the Wing12 case fan, four rubber fan mounts, the fan controller (with double sided tape, and a case badge under it), and the wiring harness.

Looking at the Wing12 itself, we can see that it has a standard black frame, with the Blue impeller. The Wing9 utilizes a 7 blade impeller while the Wing12 utilizes a 9 blade impeller similar to that of the Noctua NF-P12 we reviewed back in April. The impellers have a clear Blue frosted look to them and are Ultra Violet reactive.
