Introduction

Many of you wouldn’t have heard of Zaward before and don’t feel disheartened if you’re one, they’re a fairly new company specializing in specifically computer cooling. One of the most innovative products in their catalogue is what’s called the ‘Golf Fan II’. Unlike most case fans, the Golf Fan 2 features a patent golf-ball-like texture on its fins which according to Zaward reduces noise levels by 15% at the same RPM and airflow. Now I’ve reviewed a lot of case fans in my day and many boast large claims like this, to find out whether Zaward’s marketing department are not just playing about, let’s put it to the test and find out whether it’s true to its word.

The second series of Zaward’s Golf Fan’s have a collection of 11 fans altogether of different sizes, specifications and colours. We’ve kindly been sent four by Zaward, which include:

  • ZG2-080B
  • ZG2-080D
  • ZG2-120B
  • ZG2-140A

However, for the purpose of this review, we will be analysing just one -the ZG2-120B.
