When looking for the best computer fans, the first thing to consider is performance. That said, you can also use them to make your PC look pretty awesome. If you’re trying to decide which PC fan is best for you, you’re in the right place. We researched some of the top-rated, best-selling products around to put together this review to make it easier for you to choose. First, let’s take a look at some of the key things to keep in mind.
LED Lights: Some people want a basic fan that works well and gets the job done. We found plenty of those. We also included some really awesome designs with LEDs that glow, flicker and fade if you want something a little cooler.
Dimensions: When choosing a PC fan, it’s really important to know how much room you have inside your case. These fans aren’t going to do you any good if there isn’t enough room for them so measure carefully.
Pieces: Some of these items are a single, straightforward fan. That said, we also found a lot of great products that come with two, three, or four fans. Some even include extras like LEDs strips and remote control.
Low Noise: None of these fans are particularly loud but some are definitely quieter than others. While they’re all a little different, for the most part, you’ll be able to head your games, movies, and music without being distracted.
Airflow: Airflow is measured in cubic feet per minute and how much airflow you need is determined by the size of your case. Keep in mind, you can always add more than one fan to get enough.
Connector - Most of these fans come with a standard 3 pin connector though there are a few that use a 4 pin. This determines how you hook the fans up to power, either to a power supply or the motherboard.
Now that you know a little more about PC fans, let’s move into our top picks. Here’s the deal, we put our top and budget picks right at the top of the list so they’re easy to find, even if you’re in a hurry. That’s the best way to get an idea of the variety of options out there. Keep reading if you can, these products are all awesome and you never know which one will jump out at you. Alright, are you ready? Let’s get going.
