TUF Gaming TF 120 case fan
The TUF Gaming TF120 ARGB combines high airflow, low noise, durability and style to become more than the sum of its parts. This fan has been tuned specifically for chassis inlet and outlet use. It delivers a class-leading (for ARGB fans) 76.5 cfm at just 28.5 dB, and its fluid dynamic bearing is rated for up to 250,000 hours of smooth operation. To help tackle noise, each corner of the frame has an anti-vibration pad ― a feature normally reserved for higher-end fans. At the same time, PWM control allows for a wider RPM range, so the fan can spin at very low speeds and will even turn off when the duty cycle is at 0%. Meanwhile, 16 ARGB LEDs are strategically divided into two layers to provide higher color saturation (on the blades) than competing ARGB fans, and they also enable an array of lighting effects. The 3-pack of TF120 bundles an Aura Sync ARGB hub to control these effects, which features a magnet on one side for easier installation and cable management.
