Bgears B – Flexi and B – Cool 120mm and 80mm Fan Round Up Review


http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:HrfIPhqhtrR7nM:http://ph.hardwarezone.com/img/data/nnews/2006/5139/File/blast.jpgCase modding has been taken to whole new levels from its meagre roots of coldcathode light tubes and LED fans. We are starting to see touchscreen fan controllers LED fan displays that show you rpm temp and temperature warning right on the fan blades as they spin and multiple LED’s choices. We are going to be reviewing a couple awesome modder/gamer fans today that due just what I said display in real time your ambient temp and the B flexi which actually lets you choose between blue, red, green, and none for your fans LEDs. After seeing these on the site I wanted them so bad and thankfully our contact at bgears hooked us up by hiding them inside our b-envi case we received for review. It wasn’t until we started doing the unboxing that we realized they were in there. But I digress let’s have a look at these fans in actions: Provided By: Bgears

Conclusion:

I must say the new line up from Bgears is awesome. These fans are nothing like I’ve seen before they give that extra little bit to your case modding touch and ad great functionality along with aesthetics. These are by far the best modder fans I have ever had the chance to use and the price point is a major point in their corner.

Would I recommend these fans? Yes to virtually everyone. Although they may not be practical for workstations or htpc’s they are awesome for anyone trying to add their personal touch to their pc. Another point worth mentioning is that they are not loud by any means so they will not affect the overall loudness of your PC.

Pros:

  • Price
  • Effects
  • Quiet
  • Awesome Features
  • Look Awesome

Cons:

  • None
