Today, Alphacool launched the Rise Aurora 120 mm PWM fan. This high-speed fan features a sleeve-bearing with a rated speed of 2500RPM capable of producing 118 m3h of airflow (~66 CFM) and 3.17 mm/H2O of static pressure. These impressive numbers do come at the cost of noise as the Rise Aurora 120 mm generates 31.5 dB(A) at its maximum speed. To help control the noise it is fitted with a PWM connector with 0% PWM functionality so your motherboard can tame this beast when its full power isn’t needed. Additionally, it features 20 addressable RGB LEDs to provide a beautiful array of lighting.  Currently available on the Alphacool website for $19.45, the Rise Aurora is bound to be a success. Here is the press release from Alphacool.

Alphacool today presents the
Rise Aurora 120mm fan

Alphacool presents the Rise Aurora 120mm, a powerful and PWM controllable fan that also features brilliant Digital RGB LED lighting.

The Alphacool Rise Aurora fan allows for an impressive airflow of 118.9 m³/h and has high static pressure of 3.17mm/H2O. Due to this, the fan is ideally suited for operation on radiators or as a particularly strong case fan. Thanks to the 4-pin PWM connector, the fan can be controlled over the speed range from 0 to 2600 rpm. At 0% PWM control, the fan can be stopped completely. A soft start at start-up increases the life of the fan and reduces the risk of injury. At low speed, the fan is almost silent and provides significant energy savings.

The unique and classy lighting is created by 20 digitally addressable 5V RGB LEDs distributed across the frame and on hub. Thanks to recessed diffusers, the light is evenly distributed, spot illumination is avoided, and individual LEDs are no longer recognizable. The digital aRGB LED lighting is controlled via a JST 3-pin connector. An adapter can be used to allow you to attach the fan to motherboards and controllers.
