WING 9 (FN-FW09-20)
92mm Gamer Fan
The WING case fans are premium quality, UV reactive, ultra- quiet, dust and water proof cooling fans for gaming enthusiasts.This series features an unique bearing with patented design, winglet fans blades and low starting voltage. Only the highest quality materials have been used to manufacture this state-of-the-art cooling fan. Control the fan RPM speed according to your desire using the supplied voltage regulator. To add to the silence fan mounts replace traditional screws and are made of high quality, ultra-soft silicone which stop vibrations from the fan motor from travelling into your PC case.
Nanoflux Bearing (NFB)
Patented Nanoflux bearing incorporates a clever magnetic design, very high precision manufacturing and runs friction-free and operates noiseless. Electromagnetic fields are exploited to keep solid parts from touching. The load is carried by a magnetic field.
a) Key Features of Nanoflux Bearing (NFB)
The Nano-technology composite ensures lowest abrasion and extreme durability (MTTF 100’000 hours). Compared to other Magnetic bearings this technology allows the impeller to be detached and thus the fan blades can be cleaned easily.
The material of the Nanoflux bearinge is self lubricating and even waterproof
The fan impeller can be removed from the black fan case by applying gentle pressure
b) Nanoflux Bearing (NFB) compared to sleeve and ball bearings
Even though conventional sleeve and ball bearings currently dominate the fan market however both have their disadvantages. While sleeve bearings have very low noise emissions and are very cost effective, they tend to leak oil; once the oil has dissipated the fan can no longer operate. Ball bearings, on the other hand, while providing longer operating life are costlier, noisier and are prone to damage.
GELID’s Nanoflux bearing uses magnetic flux to limit contact and friction between the bearing and the shaft. High precision self-lubricated material eliminates oil leakage. The result is a ultra quiet long life bearing.
Fan Speed Control
The RPM speed of any fan can be controlled from full speed to low speed manually according to desire using this voltage regulator. This product is suitable for all high RPM fans and regulates between 5 and 12V.
Rubber Fan Mounts
Vibration from fan motors can travel into a PC case and become amplified when a fan is fitted tightly. This ‘vibrational’ noise is annoying if you wish to build a very quiet or virtually silent PC.
These rubber mounts have been designed specifically to deal with fan-induced vibrations and are an ideal alternative to standard fan screws, leaving vibrations 100% decoupled from your PC case.
– High quality materials insures long life even at high temperature
– Ultra-soft silicone polymer will not break or tear during installation
– Universal-Design fits most open chassis fan sizes (80mm,92mm,120mm) and PC cases
– Quick & Easy Tool Less Installation
MSRP: USD 11.00

“These products from GELID Solutions are very nice add ons in your PCs interior. If you’re looking for added cooling for your, PC give these cooling solutions a look. The thermal pastes nicely cooled down our CPU while the Wing fans cooled our case’s interior. The fans were also very silent, even when you set it at the maximum settings. We give both the GELID Solutions Wing Fans, the GC-2 and the GC-Extreme a score of 9 out of 10 and our recommendation.”

“If you are looking for a 120mm case fan to cool your components, GELID Solutions WING series may be tour perfect fit. The fans are available in green or blue, and each fan blade is UV-reactive. The WING’s price may seem a little hig at first glance but the price tag reflects some of the extras you won’t get on ther fans, such as the tool-less rubber fan mounts, fan speed control and five-year warranty. Overall, the WING 12 looks to be a quality, long-lasting purchase.”

“The Wing 12 operated very quietly and put up comparable numbers. The Wing 12 was a real winner performing second best to the Delta very quietly. The durability and performance combined with dust proof and water proof qualities of the Wing 12 are also great features to see come together in a fan that also looks good. The Wing series seems like a true winner and operates very quietly and the five-year warranty is an added bonus that makes GELID Solutions fans a good choice.”

“The GELID Wing 12 case fan is, in a word, spectacular. The tech is impressive, the quality is excellent, and the temps and silence improve the package even more. They were able to keep my scorching Q6600 under 60°C at all times, a feat not achieved by many, and did so with nary a peep. I am wonderfully impressed by these fans and will gladly give them the Icrontic Golden Fedora for their excellence in design and performance.”

“GELID keeps impressing us with the products they are putting out. The Wing 12 120mm case is no different. This product manages to live up to easily live up to the claims made by GELID. The construction of the fan is of a premium quality, with well though out and implemented features. The included accessories pretty well cover exactly what you’d want from a cooling fan. The Wing 12 case fans may not be the absolute best fans in terms of raw performance, but when it comes to balancing performance and annoyance they are head and shoulders above many other fans out there. GELID has managed to bundle these high performing fans with a package of components that make this a great addition to any performance system you are looking to silence.”

“With nice UV reactive green fan blades, the WING fans would be a nice fit for any gamer’s cooling needs. The new product from GELID Solutions also features blue fan blades. With so many great products in their line up, I cannot wait to see more interesting products coming from them.”

“Overall, this is a mighty fan for the price, and with the warranty, its very hard to beat. I would recommend this fan to anyone looking for a quiet UV reactive fan that has a nice high CFM. These fans are available in both UV reactive green and blue, and in 3 sizes, 80mm, 92mm, and 120mm.”

“Clearly we have a winner here. The GELID Wing 12 is a fan that performs as solidly as its unique design and construction. The included fan controller is a plus. Even at low fan speeds, the Wing 12 performed well and silently. Rubber mounting posts are included, which greatly simplify installation and make a difference when it comes to isolating noise from the fan.”

” Overall I am impressed with both the Silent and Gamer Wing series of fans. Both are very well built and the performance is very good. The rubber mounts are easy to install and take up any vibration that could lead to increased noise. When it comes to price, GELID Solutions scores again with both series of fans offering good performance and a very reasonable price. In our books GELID Solutions Silent series and Gamer Wing series of fans are both Ap0c Appr0ved !”

“GELID certainly has made an impressive entry into the fan market with what I have seen here today. Looking at both ends of the spectrum; silence and performance, both lines from them have great design and performance. I was very pleased at how silent the “Silent” series was and the Wing series also left me in surprise by being quieter than I would have expected for a higher performing fan. The only thing missing? More North American distributors! That will come with time though, keep in mind GELID is still a fairly new company!”

“GELID builds a solid product with great features. The Wing 12 and Silent 9TC that we reviewed today are both excellent fans that offer quiet computing while still keeping the internals cool. For those with case windows or who like to meticulously adjust their fan speed, I recommend the Wing fan series. For the rest of use, the Silent TC series looks great and automatically adjusts its speed according to the temperature sensed by its temperature probe.
The only complaint I can find with either fan is the rather thick temperature probe. Otherwise, the products are so excellent, they both deserve the Mikhailtech’s Editor’s Choice Award!”

“I was thoroughly impressed with all aspects of this fan. Not only was it extremely quiet, it performed well, had an awesome colour scheme and tons of cool features. It’s simply an all round great fan. Gelid did an awesome job on the fan, and I was pleasently surprised to find many accessories with the fan. The only issue I have with the fan is that the package did not come with standard fan screws. It contained only the screwless adapters.”

“Importance in the cooling systems is the ability to move heat a way from the source quickly and efficiently. In most systems this is done by fan. Today we have reviewed a new product by GELID Solutions, Wing 12. Wing 12 is self lubricating, low speed optimized case fan. The first impression of this unit is very high! The looks and performance of the Wing 12 are very much on the high end scale. What we have here is a perfect art of engineering from the stylish design of the package to the ultra green reactive fan blades. According to our studies, Wing 12 kept low temperature in the case as the temperature of the cpu cores were up. A definite candidate for a recommended gear for enthusiasts. 10/10!!!”

“GELID Solutions has come out with some very nice looking and great performing fans that most anyone would be happy to have in their systems either cooling the CPU or the system itself.
All three fans are very well made, and include some nice accessories as well.
GELID Solutions is a new company, and they seem to be on the right track with releasing some very nice products in the beginning, I look forward to find out what they will be releasing next, if they can come up with fans like these then the products to come should be very nice.”

“While the performance and noise levels of GELID Solutions’ 120mm fans were relatively moderate in comparison to the other test fans, we have to remind ourselves that these fans are only the first offering from GELID. However, when it comes to GELID’s 92mm offerings, they have without a doubt taken the cake when compared to Arctic Cooling. All of their fans managed to come out on top with more than enough room to spare, and certainly did not let us down. Performance, however, is not the only area in which to look at in this case though. High performance and low noise fans such as Noctua’s NF-P12 come at a significant cost, at nearly $20 a piece. This is one area where GELID has struck hard, with the Wing 9 and Wing 12 retailing at $13.50 and $16.40 USD respectively, and the Silent 9 PWM and Silent 12 PWM retailing for $9.00 and $10.50 USD. With a price/performance ratio such as that, it makes GELID’s current offerings very hard to resist.
While we cannot yet place GELID Solutions as among the top cooling solutions companies, we certainly do look forward to seeing more of GELID in the future and we have great expectations for them as today, we have been far from disappointed.”

“Overall Gelid Solutions Wing and Silent series fans are great features and high quality cooling fan especially GELID Wing is really outstanding with its silent operation with great performance. There are available in 80, 92 and 120mm. For the pricing, Gelid Solutions Wing and Silent are not really expensive if you compare the price at Amazon, however it will be expensive for most of the end users expect those hardcore users. If you would like to get these fans as the CPU cooling fan for certain supported heatsink which be much reasonable rather than just purchase them for normal case fan usage unless money is not an issue for you.”

“After taking a closer look at the WING12 120mm fan I’m defiantly not disappointed. GELID Solutions has proven again that they know what the gaming community is looking for. The only complaint I have is the fan is only produced in a black and green combo. I’m told they are planning on producing more colors in the future though, it will be very easy to swap out to different fan colors with the easy to remove fan blade. The Not only is the fan high quality and good performing, but they included the fan controller and the rubber fan mounts. Together you have a great value for a high end fan. Not to mention the easy to remove and clear fan blades and the sleeved cabling. I hope everyone else continues to keep a close eye on this company. They prove once again they can innovate even in markets that are already saturated. I’m exited to see what they can do in the future!”

“Ce Wing 12 de Gelid est un ventilateur puissant qui trouvera d’abord sa place sur un radiateur que sur un boîtier. Il n’a pas le rapport flux d’air fourni / bruit le meilleur mais jouit d’une très bonne pression statique qui donne une bonne pénétration de l’air dans les ailettes même des radiateurs le plus épais. Ce qui en fait un très bon ventilateur pour radiateur. Ce qui confirme la bonne pression statique annoncée de 2 mmH20.
Il est plutôt silencieux pour sa puissance.
On apprécie particulièrement aussi son design et la richesse de son bundle ainsi sa résistance à l’eau (entièrement waterproof) mais cela reste plus anedoctique.”
