AC Product Launch: ARCTIC F Pro TC


Arctic Cooling is back again with some more new, cool stuff! Pun intended there… anyway, they’ve got some new fans for us, the Arctic F Pro TC, the TC standing for temperature control.

The  Swiss  low  noise  cooling  solution  provider  ARCTIC COOLING today unveiled the new ARCTIC F Pro TC case fan series in 80mm,  92mm  and  120mm.  The  intelligent  programmed  temperature  controller  and  accurate  temperature detection make them the best TC fans in the market.

Cutting-edge thermal management concept 
Unlike other generic temperature controlled case fans, the ARCTIC F Pro TC fan provides cooling according to not only the temperature, but also the overall necessity for cooling. 

The  revolutionary  programmed  temperature  controller  plays  a key  role.  As  shown  in  the  chart,  when  case  ambient  air temperature is at safe level 0°C to 32°C, the  ARCTIC F Pro TC fan  speed  remains  at  its  lowest  (500  rpm).  This  is  to  offer adequate  ventilation  at  the  lowest  noise  level  possible.  The ARCTIC F Pro TC is therefore completely inaudible (0.05 sone) at low temperatures – a much quieter level than generic TC fans. 

However, once a gaming system  is at  load,  the case ambient air  temperature will go up speedily, and without any case fans, most  likely it will rise above 40°C, an  overheated  level for most PC cases. High performance and  instant cooling is vital at this stage in order to eliminate the risk of overheating and system instability.

The  ARCTIC  F  Pro  TC  is  programmed  to  achieve  top  fan  speed  at  38°C.  Th e  fan  responses  to  the  rise  in temperature swiftly – within a critical 6°C range,  the rpm of the ARCTIC F Pro TC fan increases from around 500 to its maximum of 2,000 rpm (the steep curve in the chart). Heat is dissipated from the case rapidly in order to achieve immediate cooling. As a result, the case air temperature remains at 38°C or below and thus the possibility of having a system failure can be eliminated. 

Highly flexible – sensor on a 40cm cable 
The accurate temperature sensor of the ARCTIC F Pro TC is equipped at the end of a 40cm cable. This gives much better flexibility when choosing the most appropriate spot that users would like to have the temperature detection. 

The ARCTIC  F  Pro  TC  fans  come with  a  6  year  limited warranty.  They  are  available  in  July  2009. The MSRP  is
US$6.50 / 4.90€ (F8), US$6.90 / 5.20€ (F9), US$7.90 / 5.90€ (F12).
