GlacialStars IceWind 12025
Here’s another entry-level product for you. It is manufactured by GlacialStars, a daughter company of GlacialTech. The $3 China-made IceWind 12025 comes with no packaging at all. It resembles the above-discussed GlacialTech visually:
Well, the impeller is somewhat different and the motor is different, too, although both are the same size as in the GlacialTech (112 and 40 mm, respectively). We can note that the frame and impeller look neater than those of the GlacialTech, yet are still a long way from really high-quality products.
The GlacialStars IceWind 12025 has no PWM-based regulation. It has a constant speed of 1000 RPM. According to the specs, the air flow is 45.8 CFM, the static pressure is 0.85 mm of water and the noise level if 20 dBA. These are very optimistic specs for a 1000RPM 120mm fan, we must confess.
The sleeve bearing the IceWind 12025 runs on is expected to serve for over 30,000 hours. According to the electrical specs, the fan consumes no more than 2 watts of power.
The startup voltage is not indicated in the specs. The cable is 410 mm long and has a short offshoot for a PATA power connector:
