Title: Axial fan for computer

Abstract: The axial fan for a computer comprises a rotatable fan blade unit and a motor unit. The fan blade unit comprises a fan head and a plurality of fan blades arranged radially thereto. The motor unit is held by supports passing through the airflow. The supports have a distance of at least 7.5 mm from the fan blades measured in axial direction. Due to this distance being larger in comparison to known solutions the fan produces less disturbing noise.
