The fourth, and final- for now anyway, fan from Silverstone is not the SST-FQ121 if you were thinking of it. There’s a good reason that is not one of the samples sent, and hopefully we will be able to explore the reason soon. In the meantime, this fan is one I believe is a dark horse of sorts- one that I personally wasn’t aware of much either until now. By the time this article is done, I believe others will have enough reason to go check this fan out too! While you are doing that, please do give a shout out and thanks to Tony from Silverstone for arranging this to happen.

As always, let’s begin by taking a look at the specs courtesy the product page:

Plastic (PC)
Dual ball bearing

12 VDC
Start Voltage

The specs list out some impressive numbers as well as a wide RPM range for the fan. Dual ball bearings are always nice to see too. I will also add here that the tagline from Silverstone for this fan is “Power or silence in one unique package”. Let’s see how true this is from the next page onwards.
