Scythe Kaze Flex 120mm Case Fan, 1200 RPM

This version of the Kaze Flex series is aimed at users who want a great performance at a lower noise level. It provides 51.0 CFM and 24.9 dBA while running at a maximum of 1200 RPM.

Features

  1. Fixed speed fan with 3-pin fan connector
  2. 1200 RPM version for balanced performance
  3. Integrated anti-vibration rubber corner pads
  4. 1200 RPM, 24.9 dBA, 51.0 CFM

Japanese cooling expert Scythe adds the new premium-grade Kaze Flex 120mm case fan series to its portfolio. The new Kaze Flex fans are available in three different fan speeds 800, 1200 and 2000 RPM. They all feature self-contained fluid dynamic bearings (Sealed Precision FDB) which ensures excellent quietness and very long life span of 120,000 hours. The fans are equipped with an integrated anti-vibration system, which is made of shock absorbing rubber pads in the corners of the frame in order to prevent the transfer of vibration. It is thanks to these advantages, that Kaze Flex 120 series is well suited to be used as either a reliable case fan or versatile companion for a CPU cooler.

The regular Kaze Flex 120mm case fans are divided into three models and tweaked for different fields of application. The 2000 RPM version provides maximum airflow for power-users reaching 89.0 CFM at 2000 RPM, whereas steady airflow at an almost inaudible 14.5 dBA is covered by the 800 RPM model. In between these two versions is the all-rounder which runs at 1200 RPM.

All fans from the Kaze Flex 120 series are equipped with the premium-grade self-contained fluid dynamic bearing. The bearing guarantees an exceptionally high level of stability and durability, Both the bearing and the spindle are made entirely of high quality compressed metal and lubricated by a special oil film resistant to temperatures of up to 250°C. This drastically reduces friction, ensuring smooth operation and minimised wear, which results in an average lifespan of 120,000 hours. All corners of the Kaze Flex 120 frame are equipped with shock absorbing rubber pads, which prevent the transfer of maybe occurring vibrations from the fan to the case or the CPU cooler. To further ease the installation process and increase the compatibility, Kaze Flex 120 fans are utilising installation holes without tunnels and come with a 3-pin to 4-pin molex adapter for connection to a PSU. The fan cable is sleeved and has a length of 500mm.

FAQ

  • How do I measure fan size?

    The size of fan you need will generally be determined by the size of the fan fitting position in your PC case. The sizes of all the fans on our website are shown as measured along any one of the fan’s four sides, NOT the distance between the fan’s screw holes! Our most popular fan size is 120mm, followed by 80mm. This isn’t really dictated by customer preference, but more by recent designs of PC cases.

    As for the thickness (depth) of the fan, generally 25mm (1 inch) is by far the most common depth, although smaller fans can have shallower depths such as 15mm or even 10mm. All our fans are 25mm thick unless otherwise stated. If you have any questions about which fan you should order, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

    If you know the distance between the fan mounting screw holes but don’t know what fan size to order, please see the following table. Note that the mounting hole measurements shown below are taken horizontally or vertically between the holes and not diagonally.

    83mm between screw holes:92mm fan size
    105mm between screw holes:120mm fan size


  • I received a small cable (resistor) with my fan; what is it for?

    The resistor cable (also called Ultra Low Noise or ULN cable) is designed to allow the fan to run slightly slower for even quieter operation. The benefit in lower running noise is significant. Although the airflow will be reduced slightly, this usually has minimal effect on PC temperature. We would generally recommend using the ULN resistor cable for best results in almost all circumstances.

  • How can I tell which way the air blows through the fan?

    Hold the fan so that the round fan sticker is facing you. You are looking at the rear of the fan. When you plug the fan in, the air will be blowing towards you. If you want a fan to act as an air intake, then the fan sticker will be facing the inside of the case. Some fans also have two small arrows moulded into their plastic housing - one arrow shows the direction of airflow, and the other (at 90°) shows the direction of blade rotation.

  • Is it possible to use a 4-pin PWM fan or CPU cooler with a motherboard which has only 3-pin fan headers on it?

    Electrically, there is no problem doing this - the fourth pin on the fan cable is used purely for PWM control and is not needed in order for the fan to run. So you can plug the 4-pin fan connector onto the 3-pin motherboard fan header, leaving the fourth pin not connected to anything. The fan will potentially run at full speed, so if you would like to reduce the speed of the fan you will need to adjust the fan speed setting in your BIOS or use fan control software such as SpeedFan in Windows.

    The only other problem to consider is that occasionally, components immediately adjacent to the motherboard fan header can get in the way of the larger 4-pin fan connector, physically preventing connection. This problem also occurs if you try to use an in-line fan speed controller such as the one made by Gelid.

    Another avenue to explore is the possibility of using a bay-mounted fan controller. Several models are available now which provide 4-pin fan headers, so this is an easy way to use 4-pin PWM fans in a PC system which has only 3-pin fan headers on its motherboards. When using this method, you may find it necessary to disable any fan warning settings in your motherboard BIOS, since the motherboard may incorrectly believe that its CPU fan has failed when the fan is connected to a fan controller rather than directly to the motherboard itself.
