from completed build Northrend - 1st time water-cooling!
Overall these are decent fans with nothing to make them stand out in a crowd of other bargain fans. Aigo does have a decent formula of copying competitor styles for half the price (or better). Aigo, along with AsiaHorse are always releasing new styles and improved fans.
Pros: 1. The halo is large and bright 2. Cheap 3. The Ice Blue is a unique blue that is not the typical deep blue of most other fans and is a pleasing glow.
Cons: 1. Not PWM fans 2. Halo is only on the intake side
Neutral: 1. The combo 3 pin and molex connectors are nice, but one is going to get in the way. I depinned and removed the molex on 2 fans so they were only 3 pin connected to the motherboard fan header. 2. Airflow is meh at 100%, maybe 40-50 cfm? 3. Slightly noisy, it will be too loud for Noctua or big name brand users i.e. Corsair, etc. 4. Probably terrible static pressure, not sure
Final thoughts: I can't speak to the longevity of the fans or there performance. They are meant to be cheap fans with a copycat Thermaltake Riing effect. I would not recommend these fans for anyone expecting performance. I would recommend these fans for someone that is looking for a specific appearance at a decent price.
