Cooling fans are probably one of the most underrated PC gaming components. And let’s face it, video cards (opens in new tab) get all the glory, but your poor fans keep your PC case from becoming a portable sauna. Lian Li’s SL Infinity fans go for both style and function.
The SL Infinity 140 (opens in new tab) is a 140mm version of the SL Infinity 120, which Lian Li released about six months ago. The fans have a cableless connection where up to four fans can be connected together with a single cable that goes to a fan header on your motherboard.
Daisy chaining the fans like this makes cable management a bit easier. The fans also come with removable interlocking keys and a multi-directional power cable, giving you less stiff radiator fittings with a bit more clearance and improved airflow.
The SL Infinity has that cool 3D glow effect of two little round mirrors in the center of the fan. As the 40 LEDs swirl on fan blades, it produces what Lian Li calls that “deep, hypnotic infinity effect.” I just think it looks great and I think all fans should do this.
Lian Li says the SL Infinity 140 is quieter and offers 10% better performance than its 120mm counterpart. The 140s even offers 0 RPM support, in case you’re looking for a super quiet PC build.
The SL Infinity 140 is compatible with the SL Infinity 120 controller hub, allowing you to mix and match 120mm or 140mm fan clusters.
The Uni Fan SL Infinity 140 is available now and costs $29.99 for a single fan pack (controller not included) in black or white. Good luck finding them as they already seem to be out of stock at most retailers.
