These fans can be synced with almost all the RGB light syncing apps.

3. Thermaltake Riing Plus 12 RGB


I was amazed when I get to know that:

Thermaltake Riing Plus RGB fans can be controlled by your voice. Just say “Hello TT”.

You can also control the RGB illumination by your android or ios devices too.

The bearing type of this fan is hydraulic. There are nine fan blades which makes the air blow better.

And most importantly insane 24 Addressable LEDs are set in the illuminating part to form a colorful ring shape.

The great thing about this case fan is:

They don’t produce any rattling sound as there’s anti vibration mounting system included with in these fans.

4. Cougar Vortex RGB HPB 120


The bearing type of this fans are Hydro Dynamic Bearing which has a central oil pressure.

The RGB illuminating part is ring shaped like that of thermaltake Riing RGB fans. But they look brighter and better when they light up.

5. Bitfenix Spectre Pro RGB 120mm


This is a aura sync ready fan. That means it will instantly light up with an aura sync PC.

There is honey comb design in the mounting part of the fan. Liking this design is really a personal preference.

If any one is interested to make a white build then I think this is the best option to choose as the fan blades are pure white color.

They come with the new Fluid Dynamic Bearings.

The best thing about this case fan is:

This fan comes with a shield so that nothing can interrupt it spinning.

Factors that Make a Good Aura Sync Fan


I’ve chosen these fans for the 3 fundamental factors. Which are:

Fan Speed

It is obvious that:

The more a fans speed is the better it will perform.

The measuring unit of fan speed is RPM. That means Rate of the fan’s spins. The higher the RPM the higher will be the air flow as simple as that.

Fan air pressure

This feature is also known as static pressure of the fan.

One thing you need to know before understanding about static pressure is CFM.

CFM is a measurement of airflow of fans. Generally, it means the higher the cfm the better is the cooling performance of the fan.

When the CFM of the Fans are better the more the air pressure is given to the radiators which results for better cooling through the radiator.

Fan noise level

The noise created by Case fans is also a great matter of concern. As it might distract you while you are doing a serious task.

The measurement of this noise is measure in the scale of decibels (dBA)

RGB/ARGB Illumination

This is another great feature of the new PC case fans. The RGB and ARGB fans adds a better look to your gaming PC by adding beautiful color spectrums accompanied by attractive effects.

Your question might be how can a case fan be superior than another?

My simplest answer will be:

To me, the RGB/ ARGB fans having more compatible software will definitely take a better place.

And another feature which can make a fan more superior is having better illuminating part and the number of RGB LED illuminating the fan. The more will be its number the more attractive the fans will look.


Question: How to sync RGB fans with aura sync?

Answer: At first download and install it properly. Then connect the fans to the RGB/ARGB header of the motherboard. And the fans will automatically light up and sync with aura sync if they are compatible with it.

Question: Can I use ARGB fans with a non-ARGB motherboard?

Answer: No, it;s not possible as the headers of RGB and ARGB are of different kind. But you can get the work done by using an external ARGB controller.

Question: How to know whether my RGB fans are compatible with aura sync?

Answer: You can know about if a fan is aura sync compatible or not by searching it on the internet. If it’s compatible then the company will surely advertise it.
