Add some color and powerful cooling to your desktop PC with the Thermaltake A2016 80mm blue LED case fan. Spinning at up to 4,800rpm, the fan can be used to pull cool air into your system or push hot air out. Either way, the result is a lower overall operating temperature with very little added noise.

The fan's speed can be controlled three different ways. If connected to the motherboard through a standard 3-pin connection with the jumper on, it will spin at 4,800rpm. A temperature sensor can be added that’s linked to the fan's motor which will automatically control fan speed. When your system temperature is cooled to 20C, the fan spins at a slow 1,300rpm. If your PC should reach 55C, the fan speed will increase automatically to 4,800rpm. Finally, a knob control can be slid into a vacant expansion slot in your case, allowing you to manually adjust the speed with just a turn.

Three blue LEDs are built into the crystal-clear plastic frame of the fan adding a splash of color to your case's interior and is a perfect addition if you have a clear side panel. Simply install the fan, connect it to your motherboard's 3-pin or power supply's standard 4-pin connector via the 3-pin to 4-pin power connector and it's ready to go.

  • newegg Adjustable Fan Speed A bundled fan speed controller enables control of noise and fan speed for exceptional cooling and quietness.
  • newegg 3 Blue Fan LEDs Three blue LEDs provide brilliant illumination while the fan is in operation for eye-catching fun.
  • newegg Dual Power Connectors The Thermaltake A2016 comes with a 3-pin and a 4-pin power connector for excellent flexibility and compatibility.

5 out of 5 eggsWould make a good leaf blower

Pros: Ridiculously powerful. If my computer case was on wheels, full speed would have blown it right out of the room.

I replaced a low speed 92mm fan with this fan. This fan feels like it moves the same air at the same speed as the 92mm (2200rpm), in spite of being 12mm smaller - which is impressive. It's also equally quiet at that speed.

A lot of control options, especially for the money. I've only used the manual controller. You'd have to be deaf or wearing head phones to use this thing on full speed, and I didn't want to remove my processor to use the probe.

LEDs are blinding and also ACTUAL blue (not aqua, teal, purple, green). I guess that's a pro if you're into that stuff. My case doesn't have a clear side panel so it doesn't matter to me.

At only 3,600rpm it dropped GPU temp 5*C, HD temp 2*C, and CPU temp 2-3*C (all idle temps, I'll load test later).

Fan cannot be heard over hard drives until >2,200rpm.

Cons: Above ~3,300rpm the fan has a mechanical noise to it that goes from small RC car at 3,600 to dentist drill at 6,000rpm. Wind noise is expected with a small fan that moves this much air, but mechanical noise is unacceptable for the price. I blame the lousy 1 ball/1 sleeve bearing system. If they made this fan with a hydro bearing for a couple dollars more, I'd buy it in a second.

Fan control is shoddy at best. The enitre first half of the nob's range does nothing, the second half is extremely sensitive. But, come on, look at everything you're getting for under $15.

Other Thoughts: PLEASE, don't complain about the wind noise of this fan. Yes, it's obnoxious, but it's moving 73CFM!! As stated by other people, full speed is closer to 6,000rpm and (but that's to be expected). The mechanical noise is an issue, but if you can't handle wind noise then BUY A SLOW FAN.

I wouldn't recommend using the motherboard hook up. Yes, it's cleaner looking as far as wiring goes ,and easier, but, IMO, almost a full amp is a lot to be pulling through a MB fan connector. To give you an idea of how much power this fan pulls, my desk lamp (which is on the same outlet as my computer) dims and all my other fans drop 500rpm for a second from the load when this fan is cranked from low to high.

Make sure your case has GOOD intake flow if using this as a case exhaust fan. I had to modify my case to allow more air in because this fan is so powerful it was pulling air IN through my power supply (against the PSU fan).

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Awesome fan, moves a massive amount of air.

Cons: Moving all that air makes a lot of noise.

Other Thoughts: I hear NASA uses arrays of these in their wind tunnels...It does come with a speed controller which is awesome, I haven't tried using the M/B connector, and I wasn't interested in the sensor. Works great, and does exactly what's it supposed to do.

Pros: Max RPM is listed as 4800, but according to my BIOS, full speed was actually more like 5500. Its basically like a Vantec Tornado, but it has LEDs and a controller unit as well. For a good balance between noise and airflow, I keep mine running at about 3300 RPM. I replaced the stock fan in the side window of my Xion II case with this baby, and use it as an intake fan to blow cool air right on my motherboard. Even at just 3300 RPM, it lowered my system temp by 7 degrees and my CPU temp by 9. Plus, it looks cool.

Cons: Of course its loud at full speed. What the heck do you expect when you run an 80mm fan at 5500 RPM?

Other Thoughts: Using an Intel Core i5 750 with a stock cooler on a Gigabyte GA-p55-UD3R motherboard. Other fans are a 120mm forward intake that came with the case, and a rear 120mm Apevia exhaust fan. Using an Apevia Warlock 900W PSU and a Sapphire Radeon HD 4870 video card.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Fan

Pros: It's a decent fan in that it does what it's made to do.. blow air. It will noticably lower my case's temp when at full power. I also like the speed adjustment knob that's included.

Cons: The fan is noisy at full speed. But so are my games if i'm using it. Keeping it at ~50% seems to be quiet while still pushing a bit of air.

Other Thoughts: The blue glow is pretty cool, but when I'm watching a dark movie, it can be distracting. I also noticed that the control knob isn't very precise. Moving it to the same spot from diffrent directions results in different speeds. It's not a real problem, but it takes a few extra seconds to adjust.

5 out of 5 eggsHurricane Fan

Pros: This fan is GREAT! LOL, had it laying on the floor when I plugged it in to test it. The fan just about few into the air on its own. VERY FAST & moves MASSIVE air at full power. I have it place inside my case positioned inside my empty drive bay area to move the air through my case to help cool my GTX275 video card. I have the manual speed control hooked up & it works great. I set it at lower speeds during normal operations & jack it up to full speed when gaming. the case runs about 8 to 10 degrees cooler. :) Awesome Fan

Cons: It is loud at full speed. This is normal due to the amount of air it is moving when pumping at full throttle. But it is simply doing its job.

Other Thoughts: Great cooling fan

4 out of 5 eggsversitile

Pros: -not as loud as A1357 (similiar orange model)
-reads 6000rpm when connected directly to psu
-the light lets you easily see that its on

Cons: -the molex adaptor was wired backwards(i used this on a cpu heatsink!) Luckily i caught it and stopped it from fully booting up. i just popped the plug apart and switched the wires
-the temp sensor (mounted to back of cpu) wouldnt do full speed until 59c (too hot!)

Other Thoughts: replaced the wimpy fan on my spire verticool heatpipe (cpu heatsink) with this, connected strait to the psu at full speed its not too annoying inside the case, and shaves off 3-4 degrees under load

5 out of 5 eggsBEST FANS

Pros: These fans push out an extreme ammount of air. I love them and will only use thermaltakes fans such as this one. Its incredible how much of a work load you can put on your PC with just a couple fans. But I also have a fan controller so i can adjust how fast or slow they need to be.

Cons: The only downside.. THEY ARE VERY LOUD at high rpms. But i would rather deal with the noise then a burnt up PC
