|Enermax UC-12EB 120mm Enlobal Case Fan
Founded in 1990, Enermax has been a leading manufacturer of high-end computer products for longer than many others in the field have been in business. Their new products are always at the top of the list for high-end computer system builders and enthusiasts.

Enermax USA, the US extension of this Taiwanese company, has sent over two 120mm case fans, model number UC-12EB, for this review. The fans use enlobal bearings for a longer life than ball bearing fans, and they offer the promise of very low noise.

The fans arrived with an Enermax Chakra case (to be featured in a review soon). Not your standard packaging, but they were protected by that cardboard box and arrived safely. The actual fan package itself provides a good overview of the fan, with a nice transparent window to see the actual fan. On the front it lists some basic features that should appeal to just about everyone; lower noise, longer life, easy cleaning. On the back side it shows the 7 fan blades removed from the chassis and explains what 'enlobal' is all about with a colored diagram.
