Thermaltake Riing Trio 12 RGB Fan Review

Performance

For thermal testing, I ran a Ryzen 2700x at 4.175GHz with a Cooler Master ML 240R AIO with a ambient temp of 75-77F.

As you can see from the performance above the Riing fans do a pretty good job keeping my CP cool. They perform pretty similarly to the stock fans that come with the ML240 but one advantage they have over the stock fans is the slower max RPM leading to a quieter operation. Considering the fact that these fans max out at around 1700RPM they can push a surprising amount of air, even through the radiator I could feel the air coming out into my case. I do wish the fans could spin a little faster, even though this would lead to them being a little louder I feel like these fans are designed well enough that with a faster speed they could out perform a lot of fans on the market. Right now they perform about the same as most fans which isn’t exactly a bad thing but performance wise they’re not much more than average.

 


Noise

I was unfornitally unable to record the sound of these fans due to uncontrollable ambient noise getting in the way of recording but I did still listen to them and do the best I could to judge them by ear. The Riing fans were amazingly quiet, within the software you can choose between a quiet, and performance modes. Under quiet mode the fans were practically inaudible even under load, CPU temps were slightly higher but the fans still performed well enough that if silent operation is the main priority then the Riing fans won’t let you down.

 


MISC Issues

Thermaltake designed the Riing fans well but I did have one minor issue. The included velcro pads used to mount the control box in my case came unadheased rather easily, this really isn’t a huge issue and easily fixable with some super glue but it’s still worth mentioning.

 

Now onto the final thoughts and conclusion!
