For gamers, keeping your computer cool and quiet is important and can be done through the addition of a PC fan. To add some colorful flair to your computer and ensure it runs faster, an RGB fan is a great option with a flashy style.
What Should You Consider In An RGB Fan?
The performance of fans will directly impact your PC’s ability to cool and run faster, so it is important to consider both the airflow speed and noise level. Consider the cooling components; when the static pressure is high it will push air through the heatsinks, cooling your PC system. Lastly, the RGB colors will add a unique flair to your computer. Some of these fans allow you to customize the lighting.
