Thermaltake has announced a new entry in its oddly named Riing fan family: the radiator-targeted Riing Plus 12 LED RGB Radiator Fan TT Premium Edition - and yes, that's its official and rather lengthy name.
Designed, like the original Riing LED family launched back in 2015
, with a view to offering high static pressure for use on a liquid cooling radiator, the Riing Plus 12 LED RGB Radiator Fan TT Premium Edition - henceforth the Riing Plus - is designed to offer both high performance and custom aesthetics. Its name comes from an LED ring around the inner frame of the fan, which can have its 12 individual RGB LEDs independently configured from the bundled software for single-colour, multi-colour, or animated effects, including the ability to have the colour change based on sound output, fan speed, PWM mode, or CPU temperature.
To achieve all this, you need a specific fan controller. Thermaltake's Riing controller supports up to five fans per controller and up to 16 controllers in total, for the impressive ability to control up to 80 fans and 960 individual LEDs per system. The kits come with a controller bundled, while individual fans are available separately for anyone wanting to add more to an existing unit.
According to Thermaltake's internal testing, each 120mm 25mm-thick Riing Plus fan is capable of pushing 48.34 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air at the top 1,500 RPM with a noise level of 24.7 dBA, while running as low as 500 RPM when silence is more important than performance. Each nine-blade fan is claimed to offer 1.54mm H2
O of static pressure.
UK pricing for the Riing Plus has been set at a hefty £99.99 for the three-pack with bundled controller, with no price yet available for individual fans sans controller. More information is available on the official website
