Antec LED Fan Review - Conclusion

When overclocking started to become popular, about the only thing that a company had to do to be successful was to put out a product that worked great. But with today's emphasis on windows and new gadgets, manufacturers are finding the need to cover the looks category as well. Come join Mike "Darthtanion" Wright as he takes a look at a pair of Antec LED Fans. This company thinks that they qualify in both of these categories so we're going to give them the chance to step up to the plate. Let's see if they succeed!

Conclusion

 

Well, after the installation was complete and I was able to see these fans in the dark, I must say that they are as cool as they sound. The blue light on the front of the case plus the tri-color coming out the side was sweet. But even better is that they don't just look cool... they ARE cool.

 

I have been an avid user of Sunon fans for about four years now. Though I never really considered changing these loud things out, the Antec LED fans have changed my mind in this regard. I'm getting the same level of cooling performance, less noise and an awesome appearance. This makes for a hard combination to beat.

 

There are really only two downfalls that I noticed with these fans. First was the lack of a directional arrow to indicate airflow and fan direction. Though a small thing, it needs to be noted that you'll want to make sure that your fan is pointing in the right direction. Second is price. Decent 80mm fans can be purchased for US$8-10 from many retailers. These fans go in at a rather hefty US$14.95 each. But then your normal fan doesn't have the LED either.

 

Bottom line... Case cooling is a must with modern systems. With case mods becoming an everyday occurrence, these fans will surely please those who are looking for both effective cooling and good looks. You got a window and like to go to LAN parties? Then just go get some of these.
