Reverse Design Fans?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Are there any reverse design fans? What i mean by this reverse fan blades, pushing air to opposite direction compared to normal fans.

I want such fans purely for aesthetic reasons, i dont care at all if those fans would be less effective.

Fans dont need be RGB as i have Halos Frames in my next buid, that build will only happen if i can find the fans.

 

I faintly remember some CES 2019 video had some similar style fans in display but i dont remember what it was.

Yes - they do exist. I believe they're sometimes seen on dual-tower coolers? However, I can't remember what the cooler was.

I'm not sure what you mean. The cooler uses standard case fans.

Well i checked one review and it clearly has one fan that is pushing to reverse direction.

 

Also in this image one fan is clearly reverse design.

Wow, I never noticed until now. Deepcool has their MF120 fans: http://www.gamerstorm.com/product/CASEFAN/2018-02/1289_7712.shtml

I don't think you'll be able to find standalone fans with both a normal and reversed version though.

I need the fans as side intake to Lian-Li PC-O11 Air, pulling air from 360mm radiator.

I already have 6 Halos frames coming with white 120mm fans and i also have 3xCorsair SP120's pushing air to the radiator so its going to be push+pull configuration.

Those deepcool ones arent quite what im looking for.

I could probably sell the coolers easelly off tough after removing that one fan if i would go buy the coolers.

That's actually non-standard since the flow for fans should be going through the blades and past the X shaped frame that holds the motor mount. I see why they would have done it for the RGB aesthetic but other than trying to reach them directly to see if they are willing to sell you some. 

 

The only reversible fan per say I've ever seen are these from silverstone.

I don't believe they made one in the 120mm variant it was a very niche product as it was since this was an extra thick fan(38mm).
