Anyone looking for a stylish and customisable 120mm fan will certainly not be disappointed with Thermaltake’s latest Riing 120mm fans, but the RGB version takes it to the next level in my opinion.
The main selling point and of course marketing focus of these fans is the high static pressure performance which really does make them handy for radiators; primarily for water coolers. They could of course be used to replace the sometimes terrible stock fans on standard AIO closed loop CPU coolers to perhaps give an added element of performance.
Would we buy these fans? Based on the RGB (256 different colours available) nature, they certainly offer something new to the market in terms of cooling fans, but I’m not sold on the large controller. Maybe a smaller PWM hub with a USB control and some software to control the fans would be a much better idea in my opinion. If you have 12 of these in a rig, chances are you might wonder where all these controllers might sit, but for 3 fans, then yes, it’s a wicked purchase if you want to brighten up your system or even upgrade to SP fans.
Coming in at £17.99 per fan from Amazon UK, it hardly represents value for money, but taking into consideration the customisable RGB patented design by Thermaltake and of course the specialist nature of the fan (static pressure), it’s not entirely “bad”.
Whether you love or hate the design, it’s clear that Thermaltake’s latest Riing RGB fans are going to be popular with some retailers at the time of review not having any stock, but the pricing does put me off slightly especially due to the competition they have on the current market; the competition aren’t RGB though so if that’s your criteria, then these are the fans for you!
Thanks to Thermaltake for sending a Riing 120 RGB sample in for us to take a look at.
