Akasa Apache 120mm Fan

The Apache fan comes in a very unique colour scheme. It features a brown frame and a dark green fan blade; this represents the Camouflage style well.

The frame of the fan is 25mm in thickness and feels very strong. I would even go as far as saying that this is the most rigid frame on a fan I’ve ever witnessed, therefore it should surely not break easily. Engraved in the Apache’s frame are two arrows which indicate the direction of airflow.

In total there are 9 blades on the fan – this is unlike most 120mm fans which normally have 7. The blades are very smooth and are much curvier than ordinary fans. Packing more blades in is known to increase airflow, however, it’s also known to increase turbulence which is the reason many fans only use 7.

The centre of the compeller has a sticker located which reads ‘Apache design by Akasa’. This is obviously Akasa’s attempt at adding some brand identity to this product.

Powering the fan is a 4-pin brown PWM connector. PWM connector’s are backwards compatible with ordinary 3-pin headers. The extra cable allows for the speed to be adjusted by the temperature data received by the motherboard. For more info about PWM see Wikipedia.
