Hi All, I've been thinking of picking up some RGB fans for my watercooling setup. Before I buy something, I always do my homework. Previously, I was thinking of getting NZXT AER RGB's, They are also about 30$ a pop, but their RGB light ring would be facing the rad(and defeat the purpose of RGB) if I did push-pull. I happened on TT's Riing line, but their product line is confusing and all over the place. So I dove in and tried to make sense of the situation. Please feel free to correct me if I have any details incorrect. Here is a summary of my findings so far. There are three lines of RGB fans: Riing RGB(12cm/14cm), Ring Premium RGB (12cm/14cm) and Ring Plus Premium RGB (12cm only). All are advertised as high static pressure and suitable for radiator use. The software for the Riing Premium and Riing Plus seems to suck pretty badly compared to other vendors. Note: Do not beleive Tt's pictures of the Riing RGB and Riing Premium RGB fan pictures. These fans CANNOT show more than one color on a fan at one time!! This feature is only available on the Riing Plus. macst34 Riing RGB: - Central Light guide which shows leds from both sides of the fan (as opposed to AER) - Individual Leds are NOT addressable, so one fan can only show one color for all LEDs at one time. - fans use proprietary 5 pin connector to hub - Simple 3 button controller hub (3 fans per hub) ; can daisy chain controller hubs. Riing RGB premium - Central Light guide - Individual Leds are NOT addressable, so one fan can only show one color for all LEDs at one time. - fans use proprietary 5 pin connector to hub; Fan motor seems to be the same as Ring RGB fans - USB controller hub / no buttons software control only (3 fans per hub) ; can daisy chain controller hubs. - uses "Ring RGB Tt Premium Edition" software, current version 2.1.2 - *seems the software hub and fan fin profile are the major differences compared to the Riing RGB line. Riing Plus RGB premium - Central Light guide - Individual Leds are addressable, the fan can show different colors LEDs at same time on a single fan. - proprietary 9 pin connector to hub - USB controller (different from Riing RGB premium) - uses "Ring Plus RGB Tt Premium Edition" software, current version 1.0.2 - no 14cm size.
