When the most important design elements are heat dissipation, noise and airflow , the SC162-W5 allows for 23-30% greater airflow, heat removal and substantially less objectionable noise than even the optimum sheet metal guard. The GardTec SC162-W5 is a 2 position, 162 mm., 10 ring nickel plated chrome fan guard.

Cooling fans will only work with fan guards of a corresponding size. Using a fan guard has benefits such as a reduction in the fan's energy consumption and a longer lifespan. They also have an impact on the collection of dirt inside the fan, which in turn effects the amount of airflow. A fan guard should always be used with the cooling fan. The electronic device needs to be turned off and unplugged before implementing a new cooling fan system.
