Love the product photo. Not showing anything except RGB.

2000rpm is plenty fast for a 120mm fan. Somewhere around the 1500rpm range is where fans start to become audibly noticeable in most environments. If you need more airflow than that, time to re-evaluate your cooling.

I do wish more companies would release 30mm thick fans like the Phanteks T30.

Why bother showing you the single thing that makes these fans stand out (blade attachment ring)?
Look at the pretty lights! Thats all anyone cares about these days. /s

I feel like I've seen fans like this before. Can't recall where. Looks like SPCR needs to verify their claims... Oh wait... Damn.

Fan noise is subjective. My 120mm fans are at 500rpm right now which is mostly inaudible unless I get real close. 700rpm is definitely noticeable and louder than I would like to deal with under normal conditions. 1500rpm would be freakin' annoying.

I wish some would make thicker fans as well. But then some radiators wouldn't fit in cases.
 
Fairly common to see them on GPUs. Asus comes to mind.
Yes. This profile blades tend to flex and deform easily, reducing their effectiveness. This helps reduce that flex. It also reduces wing tip losses between the fan edge and the housing gap. (In the form of reverse vortices).

But CM's weakness has been in poor foil design and rifle bearings. I mean they arent the worse. I own like 12. But they aren't Corsair in terms of noise or noctua in overall performance.

How neat. They finally claim to do what Noctua has been doing for years and years. Except, they are still about 8-10db louder than any of the premium Noctua line. CM is a marketing gimmick specialist and a mediocre manufacturer and that's about it.
