TT RGB PLUS App will support Riing Trio Series from the fourth quarter of 2018.

SyncALL, Say "Hello TT" - Thermaltake AI Voice Control
Talking to the TT RGB PLUS App is an easier, faster way to set lights for your systems. You can ask it to turn the lights on or off, switch lights modes, dim the lights, change light colors, or adjust lights speeds or fan speeds.

Sync with Razer Chroma Lighting
All Thermaltake TT RGB PLUS products are able to connect into the Razer Chroma ecosystem. Users who have installed both the TT RGB PLUS Software and Razer Synapse 3 can experience synchronized gaming and RGB lighting effects on their TT RGB PLUS liquid cooling system and gaming gear! From cool down timers, health bars, and flashy ultimate indicators, to subtle ambient lighting that sets the perfect mood for each game, Razer Chroma provides an experience that transcends the screen and into your full setup, for a truly immersive experience.

Works with Amazon Alexa
All Thermaltake TT RGB PLUS products support Amazon Alexa Voice Service, allowing you to control the lights or fan speeds by talking to the Alexa-enabled device. With the support of Amazon Alexa, TT RGB PLUS products also offer an additional visual cue for checking current weather condition in your location or anywhere in the world. All you have to do is simply starting the sentence with "Alexa, tell Thermaltake", then the lighting color will correspond to the weather condition in the location.

The World's 1st Three Independent 16.8 Million Colors LED Ring Design
Featuring 30 addressable LEDs (front: 12; middle: 6; back: 12), great light coverage, and uniform color and brightness, the built-in LED ring can paint your build with 16.8 million colors.

Digital Lighting Controller
The controller is designed with a DIP switch on the back. Hence, you can set a number for each controller easily. You can add up to 5 devices to one lighting controller and up to 16 controllers to the software. The controller and the coding guide are included in all packs.

PWM Controlled Fan with 9 Fan Blade Design
120mm PWM controlled fan with unique 9 blades design is engineered to generate higher airflow without compromising on ultra-silent operation.

Hydraulic Bearing with Low-Noise Design
The hydraulic bearing self-lubricates with a high-quality, friction-reducing substance, which lowers operation noise while improving thermal efficiency. The seal cap prevents lubricant leakage and extends the lifespan of the unit.

Anti-Vibration Mounting System
In-mold injection anti-vibration rubber pads provide a hassle-free usage with 80% protection coverage for all corners.

Availability, Warranty, Compatibility and Pricing
The new Riing Trio 12 LED RGB Radiator Fan TT Premium Edition (3-Fan Pack) is now available for purchase, via the Thermaltake worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors.

Huh, now that's interesting. Are there any other fans featuring these pads? Those molds are not cheap.

Probably for the same reason you would ask Alexa to control your TT PSU :banghead:
Always dreamed about saying "Alexa, flush my toilet". The only thing I don't have for this project is a reliable and affordable electric valve. Might just need to settle on attaching a stepper motor to the flushing handle.

Lots, and they are actually cheap. Got a pair of deepcool 120mm fans with those pads for free last year (fortunately no LEDs, unfortunately no Alexa :D). Those are loud, but the airflow is excellent.
Also have about a dozen or two of cheap and really shitty 120mm LED fans from Gamemax (chinese "enthusiast" brand, costs only about $4-5 in retail) with exact same pads. Also got those free, but I usually tear the LED strip away and replace the wiring just to make it tolerable. Good for household projects like making a bathroom vent or ghetto-particle-filter for my workshop.

I was wondering if that mold had already existed, and is now being used for these. Deepcool isn't Thermaltake obviously, but maybe they're owned by the same parent company, or maybe somebody else owns the mold and it's rented out to these companies or something.

Strange thing to talk about on TPU, anyways... I work in a plastics factory full of these injection molds, so that kinda stood out to me.

It's quite possible. MSI has pretty much the exact same design, just w/ different color parts. Might be the same OEM.

Last set of Tt fans I had the pads were stuck on and I could peel them off.

Could be. Coloring plastic parts made with injection molds is as simple as swapping out a dye bucket and maybe correcting some parameters for the different dye. It wouldn't surprise me if MSI/TT are just buying the frames of these fans and adding other parts, such as the motor, fan blades etc sourced from somewhere else.

Not sure about that one. It could be made in such a way where it's possible to peel them off, or it could be a different product with the pads attached with some type of adhesive. Going by the picture, it doesn't look like those pads are too far in the frame, so it could probably be peeled off.

My question is are they compatible with any of the 3 other RGB fan series they sell or are do they have a completely different connector?

Oh and those pads in the corners are nothing new for TT... Might be a different process tho.... And no flash molds are not expensive at all.. Specially not for easy cheap nexprene

So we can guess that TT can tell Alexa on certain days how much it "sucks" or "blows". :D

Cost usually mostly depends on the size of the mold. Even if the mold is relatively cheap, I still think it's a steep investment for some aftermarket fans. I'd expect it to be a larger mold though, one that can make many parts at once.

My guess is it's a 9-12 piece mold...
Just a guess but they likely mold at least 9 fan 1/2 bodies (top and bottom) at a time in an injection mold then transfer the finished bodies with mold trim still attached near the corners to a flash mold and suck the softer corner pieces in place...definitely not cheap but not as expensive as an injection mold....These fans already require 4 injection molds and possibly a 5th if the corners aren't attached with a flash mold...
They aren't made with cheap plastic either...The body looks to be made of PBT, the corners seem to be nexprene and the RIING looks to be made of a clear 7100 PVC....
I'd guess assembly would be 2 min per unit...30 an hour per worker...
A 3-pack of these on sale will probably be $70...some time next year...lol
I think I paid $130 for a 3-pack of the RBG+ 140mm...
definitely not cheap but quality is high.

"Alexa, Tell Thermaltake, No Thank you."
"Sorry, don't know that one"

For some reason, that doesn't work. :rolleyes:
