If you’re wondering how to find a great RGB fan for your PC, you’re in the right place. The biggest thing to keep in mind is that they’re designed to both look awesome and keep your PC working effectively by keeping the operating temperature cool. We researched some of the most buzzed about products out there and put together this guide to help you find the right one for you. Here are some of the key things to keep in mind.
Pieces: This number tells you how many fans are included with the kit. We found some that have 3 and others that have as many as 6. We even found a kit that includes LCD light strips, too.
Size: All of these fans are 120mm, the standard size for RGB fans. That’s a good thing because it means they’re compatible with most PCs. We should mention that this doesn’t mean that all the fans are compatible with one another.
Remote Control: Some of these fans use a remote control that you can use to do just about anything. Not only can you turn the fans off and on, but you can also cycle between colors, lighting effects, and speeds.
Wireless: Some of these fans are wireless while others are controlled with software so you actually have to make changes on your PC or us a control that’s in line with the wires for the fans. Wireless fans are definitely more convenient.
Fan Speed: As we mentioned, these also have to be functional. Fan speed is measured in rpm which is important because this is how they keep your computer cool. The faster the rpm, the more air the fan moves.
Low Noise: The last thing you want is a super loud fan to distract you from your work, games, or conversation. Luckily, most of these fans are rated less than 30 decibels so you shouldn’t have a problem.
Now that you know a little more about them, let’s take a look at our RGB PC fan guide. If you’re in a hurry, start right at the top of our list. That’s where you’ll find out top and budget picks which is the best way to see the range that’s available. There are a long of great kits here, though, so stick around as long as you can.
