At KitGuru we believe that good cooling is a primary concern when maintaining stability with a system build, especially if you are overclocking. While we haven’t looked at many fans since we opened a few months ago, today we are going to be reviewing an exciting new product from Silverstone called the Air Penetrator.
This Air Penetrator fan has been designed as an intake fan and their goal was to focus airflow into a column that can be ‘channeled through various obstacles inside the modern computer case for more efficient cooling performance’. The concept and design ethics are in place to ensure that the unique blade and grille designs can create enough pressure to push air as far as 1 meter away with minimal speed (and therefore noise). Silverstone are pushing this range of fans as a perfect intake partner and also for high density heatsinks and radiators.
