ARGB LED lighting

Addressable RGB, i.e. ARGB provides a possiblility of setting the color of each light source individually. As a result, each of the 9 LEDs placed in a rotor of Stella HP ARGB fans can emit a different color. This is what opens huge possibilities of light effects creation, such as a rainbow or smooth transitions. Lighting of both the fans and a pump block uses standardized 3-pin ARGB connector compatible with motherboards’ addressable RGB systems.

 

Stella HP ARGB 140 mm

One side of the radiator is covered by specially designed two Stella HP ARGB 140 mm fans. A special shape of the blades gurantees high static pressure needed for efficient air flow directly towards densely packed fins of the cooler, what – as a result – quickly decreases temperature of the liquid flowing inside the system. Equipped with a durable hydraulic bearing, the fans operatee smoothly and silently, and their speed is adjusted automatically with PWM signal.
