Moreover, it features a chilly performance that is made possible by its proprietary cooling abilities enriched by a great airflow. The manufacturers put in one hundred percent to bring up a design that is unmatched and a way to superior cooling.

About its functioning, it has six heat pipes and two fans, the six heat pipe dual radiator design has many benefits over an ordinary fan.

It gives more surface area, higher airflow and better heat distribution. For those who want the setup to be simple, this fan proves to be the best pick for them as it does not have RGB lighting.
