The company Inter-Tech is increasingly making a name for itself in the end-customer sector with low-priced products. In addition to the ALSEYE series, which is positioned on the market with water cooling systems, air coolers and fans, Inter-Tech also sells completely own RGB air coolers under the name ARGUS. We have tested the new series, the ARGUS RS-06, for you and report how they perform.

Scope of delivery and workmanship
The box is delivered in the typical Inter-Tech design – with the product printed in color and all necessary specifications. In addition to the fans, an RGB extension cable, a PWM splitter and an RGB controller including remote control are included.
The fans are kept in glossy white – both the body and the rotor blades. In the middle of the fan is a sticker with the ARGUS logo. Unfortunately, this is not always applied perfectly in the middle, so that it “wobbles” minimally. Basically, the workmanship is solid – due to the choice of materials and the shape, however, it can be bent slightly – but in everyday use this should not be a problem. But if you look at the quality in relation to the price, it is very good. The LEDs, which later provide the lighting, are hidden in the middle. They illuminate the fan, through the white material the whole rotor blades and at least also the outer ring are illuminated.
There are black rubberized pads at the screw connection points to dampen vibrations that are transmitted to the case. These rubber pads are quite thin, but do their job. With today’s fans there are usually hardly any perceptible vibrations, so the thin pads are sufficient here.
The center point is connected to the rest of the fan on the rear side by eight struts. The eight struts provide a solid basic stability. In addition, the cables are routed to the outside. In addition to the usual 4-pin PWM cable for controlling the actual fan, a proprietary RGB cable is used here. The cables are black and an additional sleeve is not needed.
