VEGAS IT IS - but without all the noise 10/12/2013
This review is from: ENERMAX T.B. Vegas Duo UCTVD12A 120mm Blue/Red LED Case Fan with Changeable Modes
I have 2 of these fitted in my trusty old Silver and Chorme ANTEC P160 case. I spent a bit of time making a mounting panel for the mode and fan speed buttons.
Excellent price with rebate. Cheaper than buying one single fan.
I can get some great effects varying the modes on the front and back fan. Most of the time I have them set on static blue LED.
Very quiet at 1400 to 1500rpm, front fan (intake) is noisier at full speed, but I run the rear (exhaust) at full speed.
The rubber mounts supplies are very positive. Have a pair of needlenose pliers and a flat blade jewellery screwdriver to hand to make working the rubber mount through the fan or case holes easier.
Supplied with sticky pads for mode and speed switch mounting. Also has a molex to 3 pin power converter if you're not using a MOBO fan supply.
All the flashing modes get irritating after a while, so don't lock the mode change button inside the case and make them totally inaccessible without dismantling your rig - You'll want to change it later - if only to show off the other modes to your friends.
The rubber fan mounts require a bit of work to install and your case fan holes might need a drill run through them to enlarge them sufficiently for ease of mounting/dismounting the fan.
The blades are said to be removable for easy cleaning. I tried pulling them apart but was chary of damaging them - so they may be removable, but not that easily and especially not with the fan 'in-situ'. Anyway whats wront with a slightly damp cloth :)
Make sure you check the fan orientation for required airflow BEFORE you install the rubber mounts. I don't recall the airflow being printed on the fan housing but I could be wrong .
