Thermaltake SWAFAN 12 RGB Fan Review (3 Pack)

This one of the most interesting product I’ve seen in quite a while. It’s a cooling fan that offers interchangeable fan blades allowing you to REVERSE the airflow! Yes, that’s right you heard me … a fan that REVERSES the airflow from the normal “push-pull” configuration to a “pull-push” configuration using reverse fan blades. It’s time to meet the Thermaltake SWAFAN 12 RGB Fan. 

This product came about after many years of users, wondering how to implement a reverse “pull-push” configuration for the cooling fans, without making it look odd or ugly on their chassis and radiators.  Don’t get me wong, this reverse “pull-push” configuration can be done easily, however it just means that the motor side of the fan (with the grille) is pretty prominent and makes the fan look out of place within the system.

The Thermaltake SWAFAN 12 RGB Fan takes care of this issue by allowing users to swap out the normal “push-pull” fan blade, with a reverse “pull-push” fan blade! The motor still spins the same direction, but the airflow is reversed.  Why didn’t anyone think of this! Really? 



I’m sure many of you already know who Thermaltake is but in case you don’t here’s some info on the company.

What will be interesting to know … is whether that reverse fan blades with its “pull-push” configuration can offer enough cooling performance over the standard “push-pull” configuration.
