be quiet has introduced its first fans with ARGB lighting with the new Light Wings series. In addition to customizable lighting, the new fans focus on performance, quiet operation and the high quality standard that fans associate with the brand. Available in 120 and 140 millimeter sizes, they are equipped with a PWM connector and feature an LED ring on the fan’s inlet and a narrow LED ring on the fan’s outlet.
be quiet! Light Wings with customizable RGB lighting
The RGB light guides of the new Light Wings fans are equipped with up to 20 individually addressable LEDs, which distribute the light in both directions via a diffuser. In this way, particularly uniform lighting and impressive effects can be realized.
The Light Wings Triple Packs also include an ARGB hub that enables the synchronization of up to six ARGB components in total. The fans can also be connected to mainboards with 5V ARGB outputs and controlled via the mainboard software. Furthermore, a series connection of the signal cables for the lighting is possible.
The Light Wings series fans are available in two different versions. The PWM variant equipped with seven fan blades with up to 1,700 (120 mm size) and 1,500 (140 mm size) revolutions per minute, respectively, is excellently suited as a case fan thanks to its high running smoothness. The PWM high-speed variant with its nine fan blades and a speed of up to 2,500 (120 mm) or 2,200 (140 mm) revolutions per minute is especially optimized for use on radiators or heat sinks.
The thick frame as well as the adapted impeller result in shorter and angle-optimized fan blades, which leads to a balanced relationship between volume and performance. The high-quality and robust Rifle bearing guarantees long-lasting and trouble-free operation with a long service life of up to 60,000 operating hours.
All Light Wings models have a PWM connection, which can be used to intelligently control the rotation speed directly via the mainboard.
