Closer Look:

The packaging for the Nexus 120 MM Real Silent Case Fan Basic Series and the Nexus 120 MM Real Silent Case Fan PWM Series is nice and compact. It is constructed of clear plastic, with the fan itself clearly visible. The series of the fan is printed on the front along with a graphic and the Nexus Logo. The dB range of the fan as well as the CFM are also listed on the front of the package.

The Strikefan 120 MM fan didn’t come in a package, so let’s look at the fans themselves now. Both Nexus fans come with rubber fan mounts and are of course wired up for use. The PWM Series comes with a 3/4 Pin connection and the Basic series comes with a 3 Pin/Molex connection. Seeing as how the Strikefan is an OEM part, the connection needs to be spliced by hand, in this case into a 3 Pin connection. The Strikefan features 4 White LEDs, one on each corner. These light up when the fan is powered and look very nice.
