    Good Fans

    Picked these up at the local Best Buy because I needed a couple more fans for my build. Nice fans with good air flow, nice RGB, and not too loud. Only issue was they were more difficult than normal to install. The holes in the fans aren’t pre tapped for the screws and when installing them into my case it was very hard to get the screws threaded into the holes while supporting the other side of the fan without stripping the heads of the screws. I actually had to use my impact driver because it worked better than any of my handheld screw drivers. Next time I would go ahead and thread the screws into the holes that I needed before I installed them in the case. That way they could be sitting on a table or the floor and I could apply good pressure while installing the screws. It would be nice if Corsair pre threaded the holes. But I still recommend these fans, if you pre thread before you install them it should be no problem.

    Good fans, difficult installation.

    I got these fans because I wanted to have more lighting inside of my case (as is the trend now) and since this came with the three fans and the controller in a bundle it was easy to decide which ones to go with. These fans have very bright RGB LEDs and will light up any case, the different color modes are pretty cool but the only thing I did not like about these fans is the installation. The holes on each corner (at least with mine) were not threaded for the screws that came in the box so trying to use a non-power screwdriver almost resulted in a stripped screw. However, after getting a power screwdriver, it was much easier to get the screws in. Also, if you are going to be installing these into a case that has primarily 3-pin fan headers, be aware of the fact that your fans will constantly be at the highest RPM because you need the 4th pin to control your fan speed (this is what happened in my case, I only had one available 4-pin header and two 3-pin).

    Did the research, like I do with everything I buy. After installation, it's all that I expected & I'm happy with it. My only gripe is that the screws were soooooo hard to screw in. The screwdriver I always used to work on PCs made me halfway strip the heads off screws. I had to use a larger Phillips head to force the screws in. And I mean FORCE, because there are no grooves inside the holes for the screws. But after all that mess, plugging the wires, connecting it to the Corsair node pro, and installing the software was a cakewalk. I stare at my beautiful case every day, forgetting about that one frustrating part of the installation. Added some halloween cling-on glass decorations, changed the lights to match the holiday, and even placed some of my amiibo statues inside. Can't wait to redecorate for Thanksgiving and then christmas

    These fans are awesome! Fairly easy install. HIding and positioning the wires was the hardest part. Instructions are ok. If you are new to working on PC builds then you may wanna watch some instructional vidoes. Like I did online. This is a perfect model, the one up has alil more bells and whistles but the functionality of this HD model is great and they just look so nice. This was my very first time doing my own install on my PC and it came out awesome! My friends thought I had someone else do it, but nope all me!

    I bought these a couple months back and forgot to leave a review. The fans are great and come in all sorts of solid colors: white, blue, red, Orange, yellow, green, and purple. Then theres the setting which cycles through all the colors. There's a couple more settings that that do more stuff also. The only down side is that these fans are controlled by a small plug in control instead of being controlled by software. I was originally going to use LED strips but these fans give off so much light I decided this was enough. The fans make very minimal to no noise at all. Definitely recommend it and worth it in my opinion.

    One of the best addressable RGB fans on the market

    Corsair put a lot of effort into these fans and it shows in both quality and price. It is quite ridiculous that you have to purchase the Commander Pro for full functionality but once you have it set up, there are so many variations you can do to make your desktop look great. Be wary of mixing LL fans and HD or SP fans; the hub controller will typically only recognize one and may leave the others off (RGB, not the fan itself). I did get the LL fans to work with the HD fans but I believe there is limited functionality. Overall, these fans have been going strong for almost a year with no problems. Highly recommend using the Corsair iCue program to customize.

    Beautiful RGB PC Fans

    Straight to the point: Pros: -Beautiful, vibrant , individual LED customization with Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) -Quiet even at higher speeds. (may be case dependent) -Available in 120mm and 140mm for higher customization options. Cons: -Require a controller (Corsair Commander Pro recommended) to fully utilize features -Require CUE to fully utilize color features (CUE has been very buggy) -Slightly more expensive compared to comparable RGB fans at the time of my purchase. Summary: These fans are truly the component that ties my RGB PC build together. One looked so good in my PC that I had to buy a whole pack. Would be happy to answer any questions about this review.

    I love these fans reason being if you have the lighting system node. you can connect the fans LED connector to it. Which makes great LED light shows if you are into that sort of appeal. If you don't have the LED strips kit don't worry you do get a basic switch to change the LEDS by hand. The rpms on the fans is good for cooling the case my old stock case fans running a game was at 80C now its running 75C which is making a big difference on my computer to last longer on long sit ins on gaming.

    I bought 2 pairs of these RGB fans, I have 6 HD120 fans in my case and they look so nice especially paired with the light node pro, and corsair link. the only way to be able to control the lights is through the control or if you purchase the light node pro and connect it to a usb port on the computer you can use Corsair link and change everything and also be able to turn them off so you can leave you computer on without have to leave the lights on

    Surprisingly Outstanding PC Fans!

    I just built my first PC, and after hearing a lot about the NXZT fans I discovered these at Best Buy. I was nervous about using these because they have just been released onto the market, but after extensive research of praise I decided to go for it.... and I'm glad I did! These fans are the best RGB LED fans one could get. They can be customized with many different color options that are controlled by Corsair Link software (Must have the Lighting Pro Node) and they keep my PC temperature cool. The only downside is they are expensive. But I believe you get what you pay for, and you definitely get top quality fans.

    Very Nice Fan Lighting

    I was doing a new computer build and decided to go with this Corsair HD120 Fan lighting kit. It comes with 3 120mm LED fans plus a 6 port hub (controls to 6 fans) and a controller for changing lighting effects. Very easy to install. The hub is fairly small and easily mounted with supplied tape. From the hub you can run the controller and mount it wherever you want outside the case. There is a wide range of lighting effects and colors. I later combined this set with the Corsair Lighting Node Pro and certainly wasn't disappointed. I would highly recommend this fan kit for ease of use, quality and lighting effects.

    Good Fans, Bright Lights, Painful Install

    Got the fans for $66 on sale. That price for 3 fans is AWESOME. The controller was easy to set up, however, BE AWARE each fan needs a fan header to connect to. My mother board only had 1 available so I had to buy a fan splitter. Works great and the fans move ALOT of air. Lowered temps roughly 4-6 degrees Celsius. MAJOR CON: You will need some kinda of power drill to insert screws. The fans are not pre-tapped and I needed to actually use a power drill to get the screws into the fan to connect to my case. Seems like that is happening alot with these fans.

    I purchased this because I only had 1 fan in my case and I wasn't very happy with my gpu running at 75 degrees Celsius when I gamed. This now keeps my graphics card / other components cooler and the led costumization is amazing! I managed to get the controller outside my case this way I can control the lighting without removing my glass panels. Hardest part of installation was threading the holes on the screws (it wasn't that bad) other than that a breeze to install. I definitely would buy a second set of this in the future.

    I build a lot of computers and these were my first RGB fans that I used to swap out my case fans for an older computer. They were easy to install and really move some air. The RGB lighting is bright, responsive, and the controller is east to use. You can't go wrong with these fans and air circulation is something you don't want to go cheap on especially if your tower is close to you!

    Quiet Fans w/ Clear Frame

    I like these fans for their clear frame so when mounted and viewing the back, you don’t see the black frame like on other case fans. This allows the RGB to shine thru. I used a combo of these and LL fans in my build. Corsair rgb software syncs them all up!

    Bought 6 of these to go on my 360 and 240 radiator in my custom loop. While performance is on par with my previous Corsair sp120 PWM fans, the added RGB LEDs made these a must have for me. As with Corsair's RGB LED lighting strips, make sure you get the lighting node pro. If you have both, fans and strips, the customizations are endless with the lighting node pro. Gave these 4/5 stars because of price. They are definitely pricey.

    This fans have the good of both worlds, great rpm and great customization from the rgb stand point. The only con that I find is that they are hard to install because the holes do not have the screw pattern and this make you use a tremendous force in order to tight them to your case; other than this you would not regret getting this fans.

    I really like a lot of the Corsair products and these fans are no exception. The colors a bright and the newer IQue software to control everything works great. I have a total of 6 of these fans in my case and the performance is great.

    The fans themselves are awesome. Installed in my custom pc and havent seen any increase in heat, so thats a perk. The only drawback is the fan controller it comes with is about as basic as it gets. If you do purchase these i would recommend purchasing the corsair commander controller (my next purchase), that way you can run it thru software instead of a push button controller.

    Love corsair products, my whole pc is corsair. These light pair up really nice with the led strips, and with corsair cue. While playing farcry 5 all the lights change depending on what kind of situation you in. The cooling quality is also great dont have to worry about my setup heating up, i7 7700k with a gtx 1080ti.
