Product Overview

Extremely Wide Speed Range

Building upon the success of the P12 PWM, the P12 Max extends the controllable speed to an impressively wide range from 200 rpm up to 3300 rpm. This enables a quiet operation when low airflow is needed and an unprecedented level of performance on heatsinks and radiators. The P12 Max provides a significant performance boost to existing air- and water-cooling solutions.

Maximum Performance - Without Compromises

The P12 Max delivers focused airflow and high static pressure, making it suitable for all scenarios. The fan is optimised for use on radiators, heat sinks, pinholes, and mesh. Therefore, the P12 Max is the ideal fan for enthusiasts and professionals who are looking for maximum performance with a long service life.

0 dB Mode - Zero RPM

The fan speed can be throttled down to a standstill via PWM. This allows silent operation in IDLE and at the same time guarantees maximum performance when required. Thus, the P12 Max allows an incomparably dynamic adjustment of the speed, so that the airflow can be perfectly regulated for every case.

Improved Stability

The P12 Max features a closed fan-wheel design. The advantage of this fan wheel combination is pressure stability without compromise. In scenarios with high-pressure resistances and higher speeds, the force effect is distributed uniformly over the entire fan wheel and enables low-vibration rotation while maintaining high static pressure.

Maximum Smoothness, Minimum Vibration

Even at low speeds, the operating sound of the new ARCTIC motor is barely noticeable. Due to sinus-magnetizing the new motor only creates about 5 % of the vibration from the commutation of a regular DC-motor without a filter. The rubber pads mounted at the corners additionally dampen the residual vibrations caused by the higher revolutions.

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

Anybody who has been near their share of computer systems will appreciate that not all systems make the same amount of noise. There are a number of reasons for why this is so. Firstly, a computer makes noise for different reasons. Generally, anything mechanical is going to make noise.
