Default Coolink SWiF2 - Are these for real?!

I know this could just be just a SilenX type fan where they boost all the stats to sell them, but could these specs be real? I know FiXT posted about them in the tech release area a couple months back, but there was no response. While browsing at performance-pcs.com, I came upon them, and the DBA:CFM is insane!

Coolink SWiF2-1201 Fan 1200RPM 18.2dBA 94.2CFM Hydro-Dynamic Bearing (120x120x25mm) Products Model: SWiF2-1201 [SWiF2-1201] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

I know the 80mm slim fans used on the GFXChilla are incredibly quiet and push a fair amount of air, and those are slim and not even hydro bearing or anything.

IF those numbers are true that would be impressive....but that is the 64 bajillion dollar question! I wouldd want to see (and hear) it in action before believing 19dba and 90+ cfm. ;)

I know Coolermaster claimed that with their most recent series of fans. TBH even though I like coolink I expect more like 22DB and 70CFM.

Thermaltake are good doing that. They claim 19db on a fan and like 86 cfm but it's 19db when slow down and 86 cfm at full 2000 rpm speed. Maybe it's the same here??

Ask for more.

I think it's about time you or another reviewer gets one of these and compares it to the other questionable spec'd fans.
