SilverStone has launched a new 92mm slim fan called the Air Slimmer 90. Coming in a 15.2mm thick, it offers optional ARGB lighting, and offers PWM support. SilverStone reports the RPM to be between 500 and 2,500, and the airflow at up to 45.73 CFM. The static pressure is rated fairly high at 2.29mm H2O, making this an interesting fan for 92mm radiator builds. The Air Slimmer 90 is claimed to have a noise level of 32 dBA at maximum speed.
All of these specs seem pretty good, especially the static pressure. For reference the Noctua NF-A9x14 puts out a static pressure of 1.64mm H2O, while the Scythe Kaze Flex is at 1.36mm H2O albeit both of them at substantially lower claimed sound levels. I've tried SilverStone slim fans in the past and found their tonal acoustics to be buzzy and harsh. It will be interesting to see how the Air Slimmer 90 (really?) performs.
