Yup, this isn’t a press release or a tease… this is the only review on the new NZXT FX Enthusiast Fan series that I know of on the Internets at the time of this writing.
If you’re familiar with the NZXT brand, then you’re probably a loyal customer and not only have a few of their cases, but some of their matching case accessories like their Sentry line of fan controllers. NZXT does a great job with getting all of their stuff to match and look great, so having an NZXT-only rig will certainly get some attention from the ladies… or at least the only girl at the LAN party… who is probably only there because her boyfriend drug her along and she plays Bejeweled or Facebook games all day to pass the time. Well, now is the time to woo her with your extraordinary taste in PC couture!

The NZXT FX Enthusiast line of case fans come in two sizes: 140mm and 120mm. They draw between 0.13 and 0.55 Amps and have an input between 1.56 and 6.6 Watts. Depending on their set speed, they rotate between 1,000 and 2,000 RPM (give or take 10%), and have an impressive airflow rating of 49.1 to 98.3 cubic feet per minute! They also have a moderately low noise ratio of 22.1 to 37 dBA, and use fluid dynamic bearings to make sure the fan has a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) of 35,000 hours.
Now that we have that out of the way we can look at the fans themselves on the next page…
