Next generation 120mm A-series fan: Sterrox® LCP

  • Record-tight 0.5mm tip clearance poses new challenges in manufacturing (stricter tolerances, impeller creep, etc.)

    Hello Carlos,

    I already tested the fans and I am currently writing the article.
    Both of the A12x15 fans are very good performers and really quiet products.

    Best Regards
