Thermaltake Riing LED RGB Fans Overview
As I said there are 120 mm and 140 mm versions of the Riing fans, we received the 120 mm versions. The fan itself has an all black housing with black blades and a Thermaltake sticker in the center. On each corner of the fan you will find vibration dampening material which is grey. If you remember on the original Riing LED fans these matched the color of the LEDs on the fan, but since they are RGB grey seems suitable.
The fan blades are optimized to enhance static pressure, which of course is better for water cooling applications. The fan makes use of hydraulic bearings for silent operation. To achieve maximum static pressure in all applications, the wind blocker frame is designed to work with the Concentrated Compression Blade`s (CCB) pressure mechanism by directing airflow towards the middle section of the blade, thereby creating a compression effect and blocking any pressure from escaping. This reduces the blade`s noise and vibration, creating a perfect balance between power and sound. The LED ring is found on the inside of the fan housing.
The fan has two operation modes (800 ~ 1500 R.P.M / 400~1000 R.P.M), with a max air pressure of 0.57 ~ 2.01 mm-H2O, max air flow of 22.14 ~ 40.6 CFM, and max noise level of 18.5 ~ 26.4 dB-A.
The fans come with a controller that allows you to change the speed, rotate through different colors, and to select a color (play/pause). There is an indication LED on the top of the controller that will indicate what speed level the fans are on. The fan controller has 3 connections for fans, all of which are 5-pin.
On the back of the controller there is a connection for the controller cable, which will plug into a fan header on your motherboard.
