Utilising a special nano-particle lubricant, the new X2 Nano-Tech fans offer an exponentially longer lifteime than standard fans.
Typical oil seal bearings in fans wear down easily due to the constant friction, and therefore have a fairly short lifetime. Advertised as having a 70,000 hour lifetime, the X2 Nano-Tech fans are made using smaller ball bearings resulting in a considerably quieter fan, and allowing the fan blades to be much larger, increasing airflow.
The fans are “made from nano-zirconia powder as main material and a collocating special nano-particles lubricant to guarantee an exponentially longer life.” They come equipped with silicone rubber anti-vibration corner mounts that can be removed to conserve space, offer a faster startup at lower voltage than typical fans (3.8V+ versus 5V+ on typical fans), and an easily removed motor and impeller for cleaning.
The X2 Nano-Tech fans are available in most standard sizes (80mm to 140mm) and are available with PWM and/or LEDs in either blue or red, and are backed by a 5 year manufacturer’s warranty.

Introduction of the X2 “Nano-Tech” fan series | 05-12-2012
We are proud to introduce our new X2 branded fan series with Nano-Tech bearing. X2 fans with Nano-bearing offer a more silent, reliable and durable solution for the most demanding situations.
Traditional fans with oil seal bearings have serious wear with a relatively short service life as the bearings can easily overheat which results the impeller jamming or pcb overheating. X2 Nano-Tech fans are made from nano-zirconia powder as main material and a collocating special nano-particles lubricant to guarantee an exponentially longer life. The average service life is more than 70,000 HRS.
The Nano-bearings are considerably quieter than Ball-bearings (2-3dBA) and they are also far easier to assemble. Another advantage is that the impeller’s centre can be much smaller, which means that the fan blades can be made larger which increase the air flow. X2 Nano-Tech fans are equipped with soft anti-vibration corners that can easily be removed if required for custom fitting. For example when building into the front of a chassis with limited space, just pull out the rubber corners and mount the fan with standard self-tapping screws. X2 Nano-Tech fans are available in sizes 140mm, 120mm, 92mm, 80mm with PWM and/or LED in blue or red colors.
Features: * Less friction, easy start up * Silent (less noise than sleeve/hydro- and ball-bearing fans) * Lower start voltage at 3.8V+ where generic fans start from 5V+ * Curved fan blade design for higher air pressure * Longer life time, 70.000 up to 80.000 life hours * Easy release of fan motor and impeller for dust cleaning * Removable soft anti -vibe corners (silicon rubber material) * 5 year manufacturer warranty
Compatibility: The X2 Nano-Tech fan series can be applied in a myriad standard PC/CE applications due to the standardized sizes.
MSRP: 140mm (w LED & PWM) USD 21.99 / EURO 16.95 140mm (w/o LED & PWM) USD 17.99 / EURO 13.95 120mm (w LED & PWM) USD 17.99 / EURO 13.95 120mm (w/o LED & PWM) USD 12.99 / EURO 9.95 92mm (w/o LED & PWM) USD 10.99 / EURO 8.95 80mm (w/o LED & PWM) USD 9.99 / EURO 7.95
Product Includes : * User installation manual * Warranty registration card * Mounting-set
Availability: Available for immediate shipping are the 120mm models of the Nano-Tech series fans. Additional listed sizes will be available in January 2013. For more details please feel free to contact us.
