be quiet! has been working away on its next-generation Silent Wings 4 fans for a couple of years now, with the first 3D-printed prototype arriving in 2020. Now in 2022, the new Silent Wings 4 fans are ready to hit shelves. Following on from an initial unveiling last month, be quiet! has now announced that its Silent Wings 4 fans will be available later this month.
The Silent Wings 4 and Silent Wings 4 Pro fans are primarily designed to offer great airflow for heatsinks and radiators, but they also work great as case fans. With the Silent Wings 4 series, be quiet! has increased the RPM range up to 3,000, so you can find the right balance between quiet operation and maximum performance.
Even with its high RPM, the Silent Wings 4 promise to still be very quiet compared to standard fans. The fans are equipped with a 6-pole fan motor for less power consumption and vibration, and the fans have an anti-vibration push pin installation method when used as a case fan, which should help keep noise to a minimum. On the Pro fans, there is also a speed switch, which allows users to move between different PWM profiles on the fly.
