Antec Customizes Cooling With TriCool Line of PC Fans


FREMONT, CA -- 11/08/2004 -- Antec, Inc., the leading manufacturer of computer hardware and accessories for the upgrade and build your own (BYO) markets, has launched its line of TriCool fans with original, double ball-bearing and LED models for personalized cooling and silence.

Designed to enable simple fan adjustment for any PC user, the TriCool line of PC fans features a three-speed switch that allows users to balance quiet performance with maximum cooling. Available in 80, 92 and 120mm sizes, the TriCool line is also compatible with onboard motherboard temperature monitoring, allowing noise- and heat-conscious users to monitor fan speed and temperatures through their system BIOS. In addition, the fans come equipped with 3-pin and 4-pin power connectors to provide convenient connections to the user’s motherboard or power supply.

TriCool is available in three different styles: original, TriCool DBB and LED TriCool. Built for extended fan life, TriCool DBB features a double ball-bearing design that lasts longer than conventional fans. For users who want to personalize their systems, the 80 and 120mm blue, green, red or tricolor LED fans light up when the system is in use.

“PC users are constantly struggling to balance quietness and cooling in their systems,” said Scott Richards, Antec worldwide vice president of sales and marketing. “The TriCool line is designed to allow PC users to better tailor their fan setup to their individual preferences, whether they run an overclocked system that requires the ultimate amount of cooling, or a home theater PC that needs to be as silent as possible. TriCool allows users to easily choose exactly which speeds, sizes and colors best fit their computing needs and personalities.”

TriCool fans are currently available for an estimated street price ranging from $5.99 - $19.99 depending on the model, through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors. They are backed by Antec’s Quality 3-Year Warranty. For additional product information and full technical specifications, please visit
