Product Info

Venturi HF-12 High Performance Computer Fan

The Venturi Series of fans delivers high quality design and construction bringing forth a leading performance fan series with built-in rubber vibration dampening corners coupled with top quality electronics and materials. Venturi fans are ideal for high pressure or high airflow usage scenarios featuring detailed engineered elements that contribute to a low-noise yet a maximum performing solid fan.

The Venturi High Flow Series fans, HF-12 and HF-14, are optimized for low-restriction airflow environments, making them an excellent choice for computer case fans, or other low-restriction usage scenarios.

Designed with a variety of performance-increasing and noise-reducing features, these fans can move an amazing amount of air compared to other fans at the same, minimal noise level.

The Venturi High Flow Series fans are ideal for those looking for a perfect balance between high performance and low noise built from sturdy, high quality materials.


  • Featuring true FDB-bearings, providing silent operation coupled with a long lifespan
  • Equipped with a counter-balanced magnet that reduces the axial tension on the bearing
  • Features integrated vibration-dampening corners, made from solid high-quality synthetic rubber
  • Dense, sturdy construction, made from high-grade glass fiber reinforced thermoplasticpolymer
  • Fan geometry is optimized for a ground-breaking airflow, perfect for low-restriction usage scenarios such as computer case ventilation and low-density heatsinks or radiators.
  • Aerodynamically shaped thin stator struts reduce noise and unwanted turbulence
  • Strategically placed notches on the blades further reduce and diffuse any humming noise produced when the blades pass the stator struts
  • The trip wire technology introduces a micro-turbulent layer that combats elements that negatively affect performance, resulting in quieter operation
  • Featuring a powerful motor to maintain a reliable speed and a low-speed adapter for reducing the speed without the use of a fan controller
  • 140mm fans come with an additional set of vibration-dampening corners are included that lends compatibility with 120mm fan mounts (105mm screw spacing). This enables the use of 140mm fans on many CPU coolers
  • Available in 120mm and 140mm fan sizes

Aerodynamically Shaped

Thin stator struts, including wire strut. Mimicking the design commonly found on airplane wings, delivering correct angles allowing for air to easily pass through reducing noise.

Trip Wire Technology

Commonly found on airplane wing designs. Introduces a micro-turbulent layer that helps to combat the elements that negatively affect performance. By the time the air reaches the end of the blade. The turbulent area will be smaller than without the presence of a trip wire. Giving a quieter and more efficient environment.

Airflow with Optimized Wing Profile

This is the shape of a typical airplane wings. A wide rounded front and pointed narrow rear. This shape allows the cleanest, smoothest cut through the air resulting in efficient airflow and minimal turbulence.

Stator struts are angled perpendicular to the blades. Helping to reduce noise commonly emitted when the blades pass the struts.
