The WING 12 PL features a unique Nanoflux bearing which ensures a friction-free and silent operation. Thanks to the clever design and magnetic bearing the impeller can be detached for an easy cleaning. Additionally fan blade winglets were designed to achieve larger airflow and greater static pressure. Thank to GELID’s Nanoflux Bearing the impeller can be detached and the fan blades can be cleaned easily.
a) Key Features of Nanoflux Bearing (NFB) The Nano-technology composite ensures lowest abrasion and extreme durability (MTTF 100’000 hours). Compared to other Magnetic bearings this technology allows the impeller to be detached and thus the fan blades can be cleaned easily.
Caption: The material of the Nanoflux bearing is self lubricating
b) Nanoflux Bearing (NFB) compared to sleeve and ball bearings Even though conventional sleeve and ball bearings currently dominate the fan market however both have their disadvantages. While sleeve bearings have very low noise emissions and are very cost effective, they tend to leak oil; once the oil has dissipated the fan can no longer operate. Ball bearings, on the other hand, while providing longer operating life are costlier, noisier and are prone to damage. GELID’s Nanoflux bearing uses magnetic flux to limit contact and friction between the bearing and the shaft. High precision self-lubricated material eliminates oil leakage. The result is a ultra quiet long life bearing.
PWM Control & LED Light
Both models include a PWM Control which keeps the fan silent if no additional cooling is necessary but increases the fan speed whenever additional cooling is required. To give the fans a unique color, a blue LED light is embedded into the 120mm blue WING 12 PL fan.

I've got two of these on my Corsair H70 and it runs much quieter than the stock H70 fans, looks absolutely beautiful, and gives slightly better performance (1-2 degrees). These are a bit expensive though.
I recently bought 2 of these for a push/pull config on my Corsair H50 I bought from NCIX. Before, my idle temps would be around 42-45 but since I had these installed its now roughly around 36-38. Little for someone people, but too high for idle temps for me.
