Thermaltake Riing Plus 12 TT Premium Edition RGB Fan Triple Pack Review

👤by Matthew Hodgson Comments 📅29-03-18
So, in conclusion, the Thermaltake Riing Plus 12 are certainly impressive, both in terms of volume output and their main focus, the RGB lighting.

Looking at the acoustic graphs on the previous page, there’s very little actual difference between the Thermaltake RGB and Corsair RGB fans we reviewed late last year, however, in terms of absolute figures, the Corsair fans, priced identically to the Thermaltake, are better.

The RGB lighting, we thought, was insanely bright and reasonably well distributed throughout the outer ring, but the individual LEDs were clearly noticeable – if the plastic was a little thicker or perhaps less transparent, that could resolve the issue. If you’re planning to use these behind some kind of dust filter or on a radiator, they will look fantastic!

The choice to use a single cable for both PWM fan speed and RGB lighting control certainly helps with cable management, but this prevents the use of your own fan controller or the motherboard – certainly something to think about before purchasing.

The lighting’s bright, reasonably well diffused and gives the full 16.7M colours; the fans aren’t too loud either, while pushing a decent amount of air. Just watch for that controller and proprietary cabling.

+ Bright RGB lighting
+ Quiet operation
+ Good cable management
+ 900mm cable length
+ Included fan controller
+ Simple and easy to use software

- Pricey for three fans
- A lot of excess cable to hide in a small chassis
- Software can be too simple at times
