RGB fans are the big thing right now and Thermaltake is taking on Corsair for the best out there. I purchased these with my Thermaltake View 31 case and I’m incredibly impressed with them. If you buy the three-pack you get a control box that can be mounted in the chassis so you can link all fans together so they can sync with each other. There is a more expensive pack that allows you to control them through software, but the hardware box was fine for me.
Installing them is easy as you can either use them as case fans or radiator fans and screws for either choice are included. You can mount the control box with the included velcro tape, but a magnetic bottom would have been better. I have to actually cut up the velcro and place it in a way that would work for my case which was annoying.
The fans come with sleeved cables and are quite long which are easy to work with. You can stretch them across a full-size tower so they can plug in wherever you want. Once you plug them into the box you can start or stop the fans on your favorite color, change the fan speed to full or quiet mode, and also change the mode from solid colors to 256 color mode. The fans look amazing and show bright vivid colors and the 256-color mode looks fantastic.
Overall, the fans are amazing. At full speed, they produce very little noise and have great airflow and the RGB effects are the biggest seller. For half the price of Corsair’s fan, you can’t go wrong here.
