Gizmos, Gadgets and Goodies Guide - May 2003

Vantec is one company that shouldn't need an introduction; they have been creating quality products for the enthusiast market for a while now and keep following the same very high standard with every new product.


If you had a chance to read last months guide, you would remember that we had a look at the Vantec hard drive cooler which while offered a higher price tag then others on the market, it was defiantly the best we have seen in a while. Vantec have provided us with some fans from the Spectrum range they have recently released. This range is aimed at the case modders interested in lighting up their cases.


- Spectrum UV Fans


The Spectrum UV Fans kit is similar to those of the Cooler Master fans.


Included is the fan as well as four screws and a three pin to four pin adapter. The fans look like a simple clear fan but as soon as you power them up with an Ultra Violet cold cathode this is where you really begin to see what the fans are designed for. Due to the design of the fan it helps light the fan up a lot. This looks a lot nicer then the normal black fan and to some people better then LED fans due to the same amount of brightness all around instead of where LED's are shining.


The Spectrum UV fans push a maximum 39 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) at 34 decibels, which is not too bad at all.





If you already have an ultra violet light in your case and you are looking for something to use with it, these fans will be perfect for you. A good range of colors are available and you shouldn't have any problem finding find a colour to match your case color scheme. These fans may be a better option for some people over the Cooler Master LED fans since they will be cheaper and you may already have some lighting in your case, instead of wasting them you may as well make use of them and combine them with the Vantec fans on offer today.
