Thermaltake Intros the Riing Plus 20 RGB TT Premium Edition Fan

Thermaltake today introduced the Riing Plus 20 RGB TT Premium Edition, a large 200 mm fan studded with RGB LEDs. The 30 mm-thick fan features a 11-blade impeller backed by a motor that features hydraulic bearing; and a fan frame with 24 RGB diodes studded along the bore of the frame, which support 16.7 million colors. What's interesting about this fan is that it plugs into your motherboard via the 9-pin USB 2.0/1.1 header, from which it not just powers the fan and the lighting, but also takes in software control for both.

The included Digital Lighting Controller (DLC) module ensures you don't run out of USB headers if you have many of these fans, by taking input from one header (two 500 mA inputs), and putting out three USB headers for up to three fans. Additional power is drawn from a 4-pin Molex input. The Tt RGB Plus software lets you control the fan on your PC, and through a connected smartphone. As a fan itself, the Riing Plus 20 RGB spins between 500 to 1,000 RPM, pushing up to 118 CFM of air, at up to 29.2 dBA of noise output. Available now as a single-pack that includes one fan, the DLC, and cables, the Riing Plus 20 RGB TT Premium Edition is priced at USD $59.99.

I like these. Bigger fans are quieter but move a lot of air.
I also like the look of that case.

I had a Corsair 600T case with a 200mm front and top fan (and 120mm rear fan) and the cooling was terrible. I even switched out their stock fans to some older Thermal Take 200mm and it really didn't help. It was almost as if the fans did not create enough pressure to blow air deep into the case. Everything ran hot. The exact same hardware was moved into a Corsair Air 540 and ran significantly cooler and quieter.

Not saying the same will be the fate of this case and fan, but I would need convincing evidence before buying another similar setup.

I wish they took the same road that Corsair has taken and made the blades either white or transparent. That way it makes the LED colors pop!
Hopefully the updated the accompanying mobile app 2.

Transparent wouldn't be bad but white would ruin a lot of themes. I wish their software worked properly but oh well.
