NZXT FX 120LB
NZXT is represented in this review with one model, FX 120LB, which is packed into a small cardboard box with an oval cutout:
Besides the fan, the box contains four silicone pins, screws and a PATA power adapter.
Manufactured in China, the NZXT FX 120LB costs $14 and comes with a 2-year warranty.
The 120mm NZXT differs from the other fans in having large gaps between the impeller blades. There are a total of seven narrow blades that stand 15 mm apart at the base and 20 mm apart at the ends.
The impeller is 111 mm in diameter. The motor is 44 mm. The fan weighs 159 grams.
The NZXT FX 120LB is free from any technical innovations. As for visual features, we can note the smoothed-out ribs on the interior of the frame.
Using the small switch on the fan’s cable, you can choose one of three speeds from 1000 to 2600 RPM. The specifications are as follows: air flow of 35.8 to 96 CFM, static pressure of 0.75 to 4.80 mm of water, and noise level of 22 to 36.5 dBA.
The bearing type is indicated as Liquid State in the specs but the fan’s own sticker calls it differently:
Anyway, the bearing is expected to last for at least 35,000 hours, which isn’t much for such a high-speed model. The specified power consumption at the maximum speed is 3.6 watts. The startup voltage is not declared. The fan’s flat 3-wire cable is 500 mm long.
