BEST RGB CASE FANS: KEY FACTORS

1-AIRFLOW FAN

The First thing that you must check in an RGB fan is the Airflow in the system. It plays a vital role in every system Airflow fan tends to pump air at a higher CfM (Cubic Feet Per Minute). It would help if you got to know before you buy your set of fans.

There are 2 types of fans 

1- static pressure fan

2- Airflow fan

A static pressure fan may not be able to pump as much volume of air, but they are ideal when there is an obstacle in the way like a  cooler radiator or CPU heat sync.

2-CASE FAN PLACEMENT IS KEY

Some people think the placement of the fans doesn’t matter, but it is an essential factor. The best way to configure fans is with positive air pressure. Setting them up this way will limit where dust is going to enter your system, which makes it easier to clean and maintain your personal Computer.

Limiting the dust, or at least controlling where it enters your system, can only help keep your components healthy, but there are plenty of negative pressure examples that can work also. I would recommend a positive air pressure for users with lots of gaps in their case or if you have dust filters where your intake fans would be.

3-NOISE (DBA)

The other factor that you should keep in mind is the fan’s noise I can understand too much noise irritates the user, especially for gamers if you play games. The fans made too much noise so it is disturbing you so you should consider this point. Generally, fan noise levels range from 10dBA to 36dBA.For better understanding, I will give the table that explains to you better:

Noise (dBA) 
Sound LevelNoise at that Sound Level
10 dBPin Drop/Breathing
20 dBRustling Leaves/Whisper
30 dBBedroom at night
40 dBBabbling Brook
50 dBNormal conversation

 5-COMPATIBILITY

There are various sizes available for RGB case fans, so it is essential to know which size your case will support.

We are giving 3 sizes of RGB fans 120mm, 140mm, and 200mm   in many cases and have support for all the fan sizes but in some cases, it can be limited so first make sure it is before buying the fan.

Some RGB fans will not come with such luxuries, so RGB headers on your motherboard will be essential to look for.

You cannot plug the devices into the wrong header as a result comes in the form of damage to your RGB fan or the lighting.

so that’s why I,m giving the different connectors 

There are three types of connectors. 

4-Pin connectors give you full control of fan speeds with the use of third-party software.

3-Pin connectors can only be tweaked in the BIOS, which not all motherboards support and this can often leave them running at full speed.

Molex connectors will run at full speed at all times and cannot be adjusted in any way.

6-FUNCTION

We should not only go with  the lighting effect of the fan but also check the other functions as well like 

cooler system

sufficient airflow

You must check your fan’s software to unify the lighting between your case, components, and peripherals, so aesthetics are important.

DEEPCOOL CF140

Brand Deepcool
Dimensions 140×140×26mm
Fan Airflow 64.13 CFM
Max fan speed 1200 RPM
Advertised acoustical no 24 dB(A)

They are better than our budget 120mm choice, a minimum of when it involves performance. When it involves aesthetics, both options look great. These feature 12 LEDs in each fan, creating a bright and colourful RGB lighting that isn’t as rich as on Corsair RGB fans. But that’s alright since the CF140 cost just a fraction of the worth of some high-end Corsair RGB fan model. If you would like affordable and attractive RGB fans that even have a pretty reliable performance which isn’t loud, the CF140 from DeepCool may be a great choice.
