They say that everyone has different tastes. They say the taste and color of comrades there, and “all the markers are different.” People do a lot to say, but I always thought that the idea of beauty all the same. It does not matter, it concerns women, nature, and technology. Beauty is different, in technique, of course, it also is. What does it all? And it is a fact that today we will focus on is really fascinating and beautiful thing – a fan Thermaltake Riing 14 LED RGB.
Just to say, if you have chosen these fans to buy, and then went to Google in search of a review on them in order to understand whether to take them or not, read, and stuff like that – then you can now press the X in the upper right corner of the screen and go to the store. Yes, that’s so simple this time.
Why is that? – You will learn in the next eight thousand characters in the fan review Thermaltake Riing RGB 14 LED RGB (the CL-F043-PL14SW-Bed and).
Fans Thermaltake Riing 14 LED RGB sold individually, ie in the amount of one piece, and in packs, where they were just three. By my review I was once again after “packing” of the three pieces, and that pack I would recommend to buy, which is a little later.But back to the pack.
How to pack a pretty big fan. Of course, there are just three of their pieces, but they are also 140 mm in diameter, and complete something there, but to see this, and the truth is not familiar. Tyazhelenkaya. Framed on the front side nice, black and multi-colored tones. Actually, it emphasizes the RGB-illumination.
The downside though is not so presentable, but there are technical specifications. Also on the back it mentions that Thermaltake portfolio Riing there are fans that are highlighted only one color, without the possibility of RGB or blackout.
Inside, in addition to themselves, “Carlson”, there is a dedicated controller to control their lighting and a short manual. How to connect all understand intuitively true, but in the case of manual explain the problems.
Also included is a set of screws and velcro. And at this moment is to stop. First, the bundle includes not only the self-tapping screws, which fans can be fastened to the body, but also the long screws that are simply necessary for mounting the radiator water cooling system. Secondly, it is not superfluous and loop fastener. On the smooth part of it glued double sided tape. Keep adhesive tape firmly, but the labels peeling off does not leave traces. The same controller can be installed in absolutely anywhere in the body or outside the body, and if necessary quickly to remove the Velcro. It is very convenient and practical solution.
As a result, packing and packaging can be supplied 5. 5-point scale, of course =) especially pleased with screws for fixing the radiator CBO and loop fastener to the lighting control unit.
Do not casual in the introduction to the review has been said a lot about beauty. Main features Thermaltake Riing – it lights. Now about it and it will go.
In 90% of the fans on the market illumination realized unpretentious. In the corners are diodes, often in an amount of four pieces, they shine on, often transparent fan blades, and that’s so uncomplicated way it all works. Engineers, and probably, the Thermaltake designers, went the other way.
On the fan box set Light conducting ring. Right into it with two spot diodes, and light evenly distributed on it. Look, gentlemen, it’s just awesome. For video examples:
As stated on the official product page, a design patented backlight. This means that fans of the series Riing unique and one of a kind. At least for now.
Connect fans to the complete controller. It allows you to change the illumination color and even mode can be selected transfusion of color, as demonstrated in the video above. Ah yes, the backlight can be switched off altogether if desired.
It is worth mentioning that each fan is a long wire braided. As many as 45 cm. This is a very important point, which allows to place the controller in any convenient location. Ends wire non-standard 5-pin connector.
the controller No software is not. How then to choose the color? Hit “Play / Pause” button, the colors start to overflow. When the desired color is reached by (count like), click the button again, and all the color is locked.
In addition, the controller also performs partly computer fan control function. To do this, just click “Speed” button. Then the impeller starts rotating slowly and thus will have less noise. Less than 33%, according to the specifications.
At the same time, there is still a novelty than a boast. That is the ring has also defined technical role. It is, in fact, is also a kind of guide of the flow, the air is not pumped to swirl and fly away, and was more directed.
Attachment points on the frame are made of rubber, which prevents vibration transmitted to the impeller housing. Actually, the noise from the fans in most cases is not by cutting the air impeller and the vibration. If a lot of fans, and if the budgetary body, all this can start to resonate, and will stand rumble. For a better understanding of this effect now put his hand to the body of your computer. Do you feel the vibration? Now press down the body by hand. It has become quieter? With rubberized inserts this will not happen.
Based fans Thermaltake Riing on the bearing of the hydrodynamic type. It is believed that the hydrodynamic bearings are the quietest and the term MTBF fans have with him is usually 40+ thousand. Hours. The specifications shall specify the period of service in 40 thous. Hours, about 4.5 years. And once here take the minimum bar, then this figure seems to have believed. But there is an important point. Hydrodynamic bearing with proper care immortal. To understand how this is a little deeper into its structure. Such fan shaft rotates in a bath of oil, but oil gradually evaporates, and after wear begins.
At this point, Thermaltake has been accounted for, and under the rear oil seal sticker set. After a year or two, it is desirable to remove the gland, to pour a little oil (preferably with Teflon silicate elements), and the fan will run like new. This point is important because manufacturers sometimes completely cover bearing plastic, and it does not get, and in the meantime oil starvation occurs.
And, in the end, themselves official specifications fan Thermaltake Riing 14 LED RGB.
A few words about the efficiency. Let’s say that all have learned to do. All fans are effective. The difference of 1-2 degrees can not be called so, for what we should strive. By this test of their special it does not make sense. The only more or less important factor is the level of noise. At full speed rotation noise I would describe as average (but well-blow), and they are absolutely silent while reducing the speed button “Speed”.
As was written in the previous chapter, the fans have learned to do, and the difference in performance and noise between the models in about the same price range is extremely small (believe me, barely restrained so as not to write in capital letters =).Therefore, manufacturers cling “chips” here.
Thermaltake Riing 14 LED RGB (CL-F043-PL14SW-B) left only pleasant impressions. In fact, all their beauty captured video does not transmit. It simply must be seen live with my own eyes.
To all this, pack of three such fans – it’s pretty good offer. This pack can be found on the Internet for $ 50 or so (I’ve found deals and cheaper). Total $ 50 get three stunning beauty of the fan that blow, and that with proper care will serve as a very, very long time, even with the possibility of reducing the speed and consequently reduce noise.
