GlacialStars IceWind 14025
GlacialStars is a daughter brand of the well-known GlacialTech. The IceWind 14025 measures 140x140x25 mm and weighs 121 g. It comes without any packaging or accessories – just the fan itself sporting its glossy impeller and frame:
The impeller is 128 mm in diameter and has 11 blades with sharp edges. The interior of the frame with two characteristic ribs can often be seen in different fans and the GlacialStars IceWind 14025 is no exception.
The manufacturer doesn’t mention any special technologies but you can hardly expect any from a $3 fan made in China.
The rotation speed is constant at 1000 RPM but the manufacturer specifies a rather large range for this parameter to vary in (±250 RPM). The air flow is 51.3 CFM, which is the lowest level among all our fans at this speed. The specified static pressure of 0.90 millimeters of water is higher than that of the above-discussed Corsair. The noise level is declared to be 25.6 dBA.
The service life of the sleeve bearing is 30,000 hours or 3.4 years of continuous operation. The electrical parameters of the fan are typical of its class: 12 volts, 0.18 amperes, 2.16 watts.
The fan doesn’t support PWM-based regulation. It can be connected with a 3-wire cable to a mainboard’s fan connector or a PSU’s PATA power connector.
The cable is 350 mm long. The product has a 1-year warranty.
