MSI announced the TORX 120mm Case Fan

MSI has rolled out a “TORX” branded case fan that is based on the same design found in the TwinFrozr-series GPU coolers. MSI first bring its TORX fans as part of its Core Frozr series CPU coolers, and now it will be available in a standalone package.

The MSI TORX design has two sets of blades in an alternating arrangement – the first kind of blades are traditional in design, which creates a steady air-flow, while the second type is called “dispersion” blades, which have a steeper curvature, that accelerates airflow.

This TORX branded fan is 25 mm-thick 120 mm, with a standard square frame, and rubberized mounts. It is powered by a 4-pin PWM connector, and spins between 500-1,800 RPM, with airflow ranging between 19.79-71.27 CFM, and a noise range of 17.2-33.6 dBA. The fan hub features a fluid-dynamic bearing and has a rated MTBF of 150,000 hours. MSI didn’t reveal pricing.
