About the Product
More than a fan, VORTEX RGB FCB 120 is a work of art. Every single fan is equipped with 18 RGB LEDs that deliver a powerful and bright lighting experience to the front, inner and outer areas of the circle.
PWM stands for Pulse Width Modulation. The 4-Pin connector allows the mainboard to control the fan speed from 800-1500RPM. Fan speed is controlled by the PWM-signal, which delivers a value between 0-100%, the operating voltage remains a constant 12V.
