PC Toys is a company dedicated to, well PC Toys...Items used for case modding, PC cooling and cases - overall you shouldn't have a problem finding something you like. This isn't always a good thing as it is one of those places where you will find it easy to spend your well earned dollars quickly. This month we are having a look at one of the fans that PC Toys have on offer, specifically the blue LED one.
- Crystal MAXX 80mm Fan with two Blue LED lights
The Crystal MAXX fan offered by PC Toys is a high end 80mm fan which can be attributed to the massive amount of air it is capable of pushing. The fan can push a maximum 52.6 CFM at a very loud 41.7 decibels.
Fortunately the guys at PC Toys have been kind enough to include a speed adjuster with the fan. This is helpful when you don't want to hear the fan, of course the down side with that is it won't push as much air. The fan is a very cool; being clear in appearance but also has two blue LED's built into the center of it which gives the fan that little bit extra show.
It is quite unusual to find such a high speed fan that looks so good, most of the bigger manufactories of high speed fans like Sunon, Panaflow and Delta all follow the very bland black look. It is nice to see that PC Toys have added that little something to it to separate it from the others.
Adjusting the fan speed is quite easy and simply involves the use of a Phillips screw driver. Respectively turning the knob clock wise or anti clock wise you easily slow down or speed up the fan. The difference in noise when it its set to the slower speed is very noticeable.
The Crystal MAXX fan is one of the only high performance fans that a case modder would be interested in. When you want to go for something that looks good, normally you are limited to lower speed fans. You could easily use this fan on your processor cooler and get maximum performance out of your heatsink.
