Packaging and Accessories

Cooler Master has adopted the black and purple scheme across the board for their products, with the packaging for the MF120 Halo fans being no different. This triple pack has a more substantial cardboard box than the single fan no doubt, and we see the company and product name along with a large render of the three fans and controller on the front, as well as a note on these RGB fans being compatible with the various mainstream motherboard lighting solutions. On the back and side are marketing features and specs in multiple languages, and two seals and a double flap on the sides help keep the contents inside in place during transit.

Opening the box, we see the included accessories in a separate cardboard box above the fans. These include a user manual with hardly any useful information and a set of four self-tapping metal screws per fan should you want to use these as case fans. For the sake of this review, they will be tested as radiator fans, in which case we will be using the ~30 mm screws provided with the radiator. The triple pack also includes 3-to-1 cable adapters for the LEDs (powered via SATA) and the fan motors that go to a 4-pin PWM header on your motherboard or PWM fan controller. The red input header for the PWM cables will dictate the PWM response to all the fans in series. There are three connector covers for the LED cables and a note about the included RGB controller, which is fairly small and has support for the LED cable as well as an LED reset header from a compatible case.

The fans come individually packed in a cardboard sleeve for further protection and are packaged together snugly inside the box. Not much else to see here, but this is otherwise a better-than-average unboxing experience with the included accessories on par with or even surpassing competing solutions from other brands.
