Apart from the frame design, the fan blades have changed as well, their angle is adjusted to achieve even more air pressure, which is always a good thing. be quiet! describes the Pure Wings 3 as the right choice for any case configuration that demands high cooling performance and great air circulation. Due to its lower price, the Pure Wings 3 lineup includes rifle-bearing technology and boasts a lifespan of 80,000 hours. The Pure Wings 3 lineup comes with 6 different variations either in 120mm or 140mm to cover most users' needs.
The high RPM variation includes up to 9 blades for the 120mm/140mm dimension and 7 blades designed for the rest lineup. The improved performance compared with the Pure Wings 2 is present as the slightly lower overall noise. Users can choose either from a 4-pin PWM or a 3-pin design to best suit their needs.
