ASUS today announced TUF Gaming TR120 ARGB case fans, which offer exceptional airflow and polished aesthetics from every point of view. Next-gen refinements boost the cooling power of TUF Gaming TR120 ARGB fans. The redesigned fan blades are extra-wide, and are now housed in a 28 mm frame - up to 12% thicker than the previous generation. Combined, these elements increase airflow by up to 77.4 CFM and static pressure by up to 3.3 mmH2O. When dialing in a tough workload, these 120 mm fans make sure that a build has the steady stream of cooling air that it needs.

TUF Gaming TR120 ARGB case fans are primed to perform, and they're also built for quiet operation. At most, they produce 29 dB(A) of noise. In the heat of battle, users are unlikely to hear them at all. When standard case fans are used as intakes in a panoramic chassis, they are not always displayed to advantage, as users can only see their sides and rear. This means that elements like structural supports, wires, and visible parts of the motor get the front-and-center treatment instead of RGB LED illumination and any front-facing decorations.



To solve this problem, TUF Gaming TR120 ARGB fans are available in both standard- and reverse-airflow editions. As a result, when looking inside their chassis, users will see the front side of the fan-no matter if they are pulling cool air in or escorting warm air out.

Some competing reverse-airflow fans solve aesthetic concerns, but they offer significantly less airflow performance than their standard-airflow counterparts. Reverse-airflow TUF Gaming TR120 ARGB fans, on the other hand, offer 76.3 CFM of airflow and 2.75 mmH2O of static pressure, retaining much of the cooling power of their standard-airflow siblings.

Customizable lighting on all sides
Updated aesthetics make TUF Gaming TR120 ARGB fans a natural fit for panoramic builds - or for any PC that offers more than a glimpse of its case fans. The ARGB lighting effects are bolstered with an 8+8 double-layer LED array that emits light evenly through each fan blade and frame.

Because many chassis installation points put the sides of a case fan on display, the TR120 ARGB brings the lightshow to the sides as well, via translucent panels that encircle the frame. The divergent patterns on each side interconnect in eye-catching ways, depending on how users line them up with adjacent fans, providing a fun way to personalize a PC.

Serious cool, serious style
Whether building a PC in a panoramic chassis that calls for a fleet of eye-catching and high-performance fans in standard- or reverse-airflow models, or simply outfitting a standard PC with ARGB fans that provide great airflow and static pressure - the new TUF Gaming TR120 ARGB fans stand ready.

I can only imagine the BS their RMA dept. would think up to deny repair-replacement, or try and extort $$$ from the customer.

I used to work for a company years ago that refurbished/repaired computers from the likes of CYBPERPOWER and IBUYPOWER PowerSpec and such. You would appalled at the practices some companies ues to refuse your RMA. DOA fan....o that got damaged in shipping call Fedex thank for your 150$ non refundable shipping we will ship it back for another 150 or you can drive 6 hours and pick it up. Stuff like that.

Then you had companies like EVGA "That card is to old we dont have any stock we are upgrading you and shipping overnight" God rest their soul.

All these thicker RGB fans coming out and the best RGB fan is still the Phanteks D30.

TBF, the fan in the topic is a 'standard' 28mm thickness. The D30 is 30mm, and that small increase in thickness allows for a lot better static pressure and overall 'efficiency'.

That's true, makes me wonder why some brands are using only 28mm thickness? I think Phanteks and Corsair are the only ones hitting the 30mm size.
