The fan accompanying the Corator DS cooler is called the SWiF2-120P which can also be purchased seperately from the company. This is an eleven blade Hydro Dynamic Bearing fan which is rated to spin between 800 and 1700 rpm. At the lowest speed it pushes around 35 cfm of air and at the full speed around 75 cfm. The acoustical noise is rated between 8.5 dBa and 27 dBa which covers a wide gamut for those with sensitive ears.
The SWiF moniker stands for ‘Silent Whisper Fan’ which now uses a Hydro Dynamic Bearing (also referred to as a Fluid Dynamic Bearing). The original fans were double ball bearing.
Coolink sent us a few of their fans. The SWiF 2 120P and the SWiF2 1201. The 1201 is a fixed fan which generates strong airflow (94 m3/h) while generating 18.2 dBA of noise – it does this by spinning at a constant 1200rpm.
The boxes for both are identical, apart from the badge name top right and the fact that the 120P is PWM controlled.
Both fans are finished in an intense bright yellow with black surround. The name of each is displayed on a sticker in the central fan position. These would be hard to miss in a system build.
From the rear they look identical following the same eleven blade design. There is a 60 month, 5 year warranty with both fans which is class leading.
Both fans come with a set of rubber mounting plugs and 4 screws.
