The Alphacool Apex Stealth Metal Power fan is the first metalic fan that I test on my Longwin machine. This fan is built to last, promising good performance and a fair price, given its specifications. The competition is tough at this price range, but nobody offers a fully metalic fan
As its name implies, the Alphacool Apex Stealth Metal Power fan uses a metallic frame for increased durability. It can reach up to 3000 RPM, promising high airflow and static pressure. Alphacool states that the fan’s main body is completely decoupled from its frame, minimizing vibration noise, so rubber corners are unnecessary. The fan’s six-pole motor uses a hydrodynamic bearing, an improved version of the fluid dynamic bearing. The standard variant of the Apex Stealth fan spins up to 2000 RPM, while the power variant goes up to 3000 RPM.
