Thermaltake launches Riing Plus 12 LED TT Premium fan

Thermaltake launches Riing Plus 12 LED TT Premium fan

Thermaltake has launched a new Riing fan family member, the Riing Plus 12, which comes in a pack of three with a bundled controller.

Thermaltake has announced a new entry in its oddly named Riing fan family: the radiator-targeted Riing Plus 12 LED RGB Radiator Fan TT Premium Edition - and yes, that's its official and rather lengthy name.

Designed, like the original Riing LED family launched back in 2015, with a view to offering high static pressure for use on a liquid cooling radiator, the Riing Plus 12 LED RGB Radiator Fan TT Premium Edition - henceforth the Riing Plus - is designed to offer both high performance and custom aesthetics. Its name comes from an LED ring around the inner frame of the fan, which can have its 12 individual RGB LEDs independently configured from the bundled software for single-colour, multi-colour, or animated effects, including the ability to have the colour change based on sound output, fan speed, PWM mode, or CPU temperature.

To achieve all this, you need a specific fan controller. Thermaltake's Riing controller supports up to five fans per controller and up to 16 controllers in total, for the impressive ability to control up to 80 fans and 960 individual LEDs per system. The kits come with a controller bundled, while individual fans are available separately for anyone wanting to add more to an existing unit.

According to Thermaltake's internal testing, each 120mm 25mm-thick Riing Plus fan is capable of pushing 48.34 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air at the top 1,500 RPM with a noise level of 24.7 dBA, while running as low as 500 RPM when silence is more important than performance. Each nine-blade fan is claimed to offer 1.54mm H2O of static pressure.

UK pricing for the Riing Plus has been set at a hefty £99.99 for the three-pack with bundled controller, with no price yet available for individual fans sans controller. More information is available on the official website.

3 120mm fans for a hundred quid ... bargain ! :)

Wonder if they'll release the numbers on how many they sell.

£33 a fan?

That's some industrial grade urine extraction... it makes that K-series i3 look good value...

Sell... probably none, or very close to it...
Give away as prizes/sponsorship/etc - loads...

I fear you guys may have missed the bit where it's £100 for three fans and the fancy-dancy five-fan controller that lets you address each of the 12 leds on each fan individually.

Don't get me wrong, it's still a rip - but not quite as bad as £33 a fan!

Wow, what a huge price for some colored fans! How is the noise level compared to some high grade stuff like eg. Noctua fans?

Having the Thermaltake name attached should get you a rebate, not a £25 premium over the equivalent Corsair product...

aaah, so they'll be selling the fans individually so you can have all 5 slots filled then ... c'mon Gareth use your contacts, find out how much the individual fans will be :)

The WORLD needs to know !

Damn, Corsair being reasonably priced compared to its competitors, that's something you don't see every day.
