What has changed with the NZXT F-Series RGB Fans?

Replacing our previous Aer 2 RGB Series, the NZXT F-Series RGB fans have been optimized to not only offer improved static pressure, lower noise, and more airflow but also come with a revamped look depending on the model you're go with. 

Whether you select the original F-Series RGB with its improved RGB ring, the minimalist F-Series RGB Core with its hub-lit fan blades, or the stellar F-Series RGB Duo fans featuring a symmetrical RGB ring design you're sure to find something that'll match your build.

What are the differences between the F-Series RGB, RGB Core, and RGB Duo fans?

For many builders, the most immediate difference is going to be the type of lighting used between each fan, however the cage design of each fan also brings some additional changes to the table.  Due to the square cage design of the RGB Core fans, these fans may be more ideal when mounted to a radiator for improved static pressure while.  A full breakdown of each fan is included below:

Does NZXT offer a double or triple pack for the F-Series RGB fans?

Yes we do!  All three fan variants will have a triple pack for 120 mm fans as well as a double pack for 140 mm fans that will include the fans as well as an NZXT RGB Controller.  This package is ideal for those who may need an additional RGB Controller or those who do not already have an NZXT RGB & Fan Controller.

Do the F-Series RGB Fans have daisy-chaining like the Aer and Aer 2 RGB Fans?

The F-Series RGB fans will not include daisy chaining like that found on previous generation NZXT RGB Fans.

What colors are the F-Series RGB fans available in?

All F-Series RGB fans are available in either White or Black and include cables matched to the color of the fan.

Please note:  The included RGB Controller in the Double and Triple packs will be all black with black cables regardless of the color of the fans.

Can I use F-Series RGB fans on my liquid cooler/radiator?

Yes!  Thanks to improvements made to the static pressure of each of these fan models these fans are flexible enough to be used either as general case airflow fans or as cooler fans to push air through the radiator quietly and effectively.
