I had mentioned Bitspower introducing fans under their brand last year at CES 2019, and while the budget-minded Touchaqua Njord fans we saw recently were part of that, their real focus was on the proper Bitspower-branded version. Merely named Njord Dual Fin, these fans are meant to directly compete against flagship PC fans from mainstream companies such as CORSAIR and Thermaltake in offering RGB lighting without compromising on performance. So when the company offered to send some of these along with the Touchaqua Njord, I simply had to say yes!
The Bitspower NJORD Dual Fin, presumably also named after the Norse god of the wind, is available in black or white rotor colors, as an individual fan or part of a triple pack with more goodies included. This is in contrast to the Touchaqua Njord, which only has a single 3-pack SKU, and there is more going on here. The naming confusion aside, this fan is quite differently built and has some cool features when it comes to powering and controlling it, which we will go through in detail here. As the preview image above shows, these are RGB fans as well, with most of the company's new water blocks also embracing integrated addressable digital RGB LEDs, and we begin the review with a look at the specifications in the table below. Thanks again to Bitspower for sending a review sample to TechPowerUp.
