SilverStone has created what they call the "Air Penetrator Fan." It is specifically designed for intake fan applications. The design goal for Air Penetrator is to focus airflow into a column that can be channeled through various obstacles inside the modern computer case for more efficient cooling performance. This is different than a traditional fan that makes a cone of air and deals with the obstacles by increasing the RPMs and subsequently, the noise.
