Nanoxia FX EVO 120 IFC 1600
Here’s Nanoxia’s FX EVO 120 IFC 1600. Its packaging may already be familiar to you as we’ve been testing fans from this series in three consecutive reviews already:
The fan is shipped together with silicone pins, self-tipping screws, and a speed controller designed as a back-panel mounting bracket.
The fan is rather inexpensive at $15. It is manufactured in China and comes with a 10-year warranty. Its weight is only 103 grams and its 7-blade impeller is 113 mm in diameter.
The FX EVO 120 IFC 1600 is actually no different visually from its series mates.
But its peak speed is higher at 1600 RPM. Consequently, the peak air flow is 60.3 CFM, the static pressure is 1.45 mm of water, and the noise level is 20.3 dBA. The FX EVO 120 IFC 1600 has all the features of other Nanoxia fans such as makrolon blades, durable nano bearings, ECO motor with low startup voltage and others.
The 40mm motor has a sticker with product and manufacturer information.
The fan consumes no more than 1.56 watts. The 430mm sleeved cable is long enough to reach to any point on the mainboard or to a speed controller like the included one.
Nanoxia FX EVO 120 PWM 1500
The Nanoxia FX EVO 120 PWM 1500 has a smaller box than the previous model and comes without a speed controller.
The controller isn’t necessary because the fan supports PWM-based speed regulation. The accessories include screws and silicone pins.
The FX EVO 120 PWM 1500 looks like the rest of the company’s modern fans, so we won’t overload this review with identical photos. We can only tell you that the speed of this model varies from 500 to 1500 RPM. The air flow changes from 24.2 to 58.5 CFM, the static pressure is 0.45 to 1.41 mm of water, and the noise level is 9.3 to 18 dBA. Despite the small difference from the FX EVO 120 IFC 1600 in top speed, this model should be considerably more economical: 0.96 instead of 1.56 watts. We’ll check this out in practical tests shortly.
In our previous reviews of Nanoxia fans we didn't tell you that they have a detachable impeller. Now we can show you that:
We can see neat coils, capacitors and silicone impeller lubricant here.
That’s all about Nanoxia fans, now we can move on to the next brand.
