Setup & Usage
Getting the Light Wings fans setup is pretty much like any other fans out there, mount them in your system, connect all the wires, and you are good to go. Since we have the 3-pack that comes with the ARGB hub it makes things a bit easier. We connect each ARGB cable to the ARGB hub, then a single cable to the ARGB header on our motherboard. You will need to connect each fan to a fan header on your motherboard or on a fan hub in your case.
When you power your system on you’ll notice the ring around the fan frame will light up with RGB lighting. Now the colors and effects will all depend on your motherboard’s RGB software or what device you have the ARGB hub plugged into. Keep in mind that the RGB hub is just that, a hub, it is not an ARGB controller. Also keep in mind that your effects will be the same if you use the ARGB hub or daisy-chain the RGB connectors together. Here are some shots of the fans all lit up.
So how loud are these fans? We decided to use our RisePro sound level meter and measure noise levels of a single fan at 100%, 50%, and 25% speeds. be quiet! also sent us over a single 120 mm high-speed Light Wings fan so we tested that as well. Here are the results.
