The first Part is the Anti Vibration pads, first seen on the NF-F12, I did and still do to this day feel that this for some reason is my favourite feature out of every fan I have worked with first seen on the NF-F12, I did and still do to this day feel that this for some reason is my favourite feature out of every fan I have worked with. They both look and perform amazingly.
The second part is the Stepped Inlet Design, This design is said to help direct the air into the fan in a more efficient manner.I can't say that these definitely are what makes this fan so quiet but what I CAN say is that they look good and along with the rest of the AAO frame, give the fan a nice premium look and feel to it.
And now for the final feature, here we have the Inner Surface Microstructures. The idea behind these is similar to the golf ball. Essentially this is designed to create a kind of air buffer between the fan blades and chassis lowering noise from the blades. I believe that we will see these features integrated a lot more in the future which I am happy about.
Breaking the fan down we find the incredibly successful SSO2 bearing system enclosed in a copper bearing shell. I can almost guarantee you will not find a better performing, long lasting, quiet bearing system than this. If there is any companies reading this, I challenge you to change my mind on this because as far as I'm concerned it's unbeatable at this point in time.
