Bundled with the 11X Extreme is an Ultra Quiet 120mm Blue LED PWM Fan. This fan is already attached to the heatsink via a combination of plastic brackets. The seven-blade design also features a long life bearing for extended use. Being a PWM fan and using the provided adapter allows for the fan speed to be adjusted. With the low noise adapter fitted the fan runs 1000RPM - 1450RPM whilst without adapter (Performance mode) runs 1000RPM - 1950RPM.
