Description

Slim 12 PL Blue (FN-FW12SlimBPL-16)
Silent Slim 120mm PWM Fan with LED

 

The Slim 12 PL Blue features a unique Hydro Dynamic Bearing which ensures silent operation and a long lifetime. Same as the Slim 12 UV Blue the impeller of Slim 12 PL Blue is also blue but includes a high-quality PWM control for a rpm range of 900-1600. Additionally the Slim 12 PL Blue comes with 4 pcs of blue LED lights and an on/off switch mounted on the frame of the fan.

Although both fans generate high air flow, they are very silent. The Slim 12 PL Blue starts with 7 Volts. Due to the LED lights the Slim 12 PL Blue has a 3-year warranty.

MSRP: USD 16.99 / Euro 9.90

“Even though both of the fans look almost the same with very similar structure and appearance they perform in very differently. The first model is obviously made to work as a cpu cooler fan suitable for installing inside any HTPC or regular system because of its dimensions while the second model is working with wider voltage range and I believe more suitable for installing as a case fan. Apart from that, when both of the fans are working at 12V they are a very good choice for installing on bigger and smaller CPU coolers. Both of the fans were completely silent during the tests at 5, 7 and 9V and got a bit noisy at the tests conducted at 12V. I really loved seeing Gelid’s colour scheme offering black frame and light blue semi-transparent propeller with UV reactive layer with blue LEDs. Just wonderful combiantion especially when there is UV back light. They just glow like a star.”

“The Slim 12 UV and Slim 12 PL are both highly affordable fans, with price tags of $11.99 and $14.99 CDN respectively. Although the Slim 12 PL has a slightly higher noise rating than the Slim 12 UV (which I observed was not noticeable to my ear), the small price tag between the two would make the Slim 12 PL my obvious choice. For only $3 more you’re getting a sharp looking LED fan with controllable LED’s (lighting not available on the UV model) as well as the ability to power the fan on a PWM controller either now, or in the future (can still be powered on a 3-pin header if PWM is unavailable). I was very pleased with the performance of both models though, and GELID has shown that it’s possible to make a slim fan without sacrificing too much silence or overall performance. Now, I just wish the Slim 12 PL would have gotten that five year warranty too!”
