Extraordinary Cooling Performance
Rising Trio Series continues the high static pressure fan design of Thermaltake Riing Series. The CFM of Riing Trio fans is 41.13 that is equal to 69.83022 m3/h. In other words, the air volume that the fan can exhaust per hour can fill up 632 pieces of super tower chassis. In the video, you can clearly see the superiority of the high-performance Riing Trio fans.

Now lets check out the unboxing and product overview!
Thermaltake has included all of the wires, screws and the control box needed to get all three Riing fans up and running in your system. They also included 2 full sets of screws, one set for mounting the fans onto a radiator and one set for mounting them directly to the case. Either way, it’s nice to see Thermaltake included a bit more than you need in the kit, plus PC builders can always use extra fan screws.
Now onto the installation!
