If you follow me, you might have heard me say that LEDs make your computer go faster. That’s because it’s a hard cold fact, as long as nobody tries to actually test it or anything. Regardless, I’m huge fan of RGB lighting and seeing it added to with the NZXT Aer fans is pretty fantastic.AERRGB_140_Front_Rainbow

First off, I love the design on their RGB ring for the Aer. It’s unique in it’s shape, but also looks like it will have a great glow around the entire shroud. The other bonus is the fact that the Aer can be controlled by the Hue+. While a hardware control can be nice sometimes, it also means having access to knobs or buttons that you can access on the outside of your case. The Hue+ allows software access to the lighting, making control a bit easier on top of giving more control options. Check out the full press release below and get excited for more glorious lighting in our PCs!

Lighting is in the Aer NZXT launches Aer RGB, premium LED PWM fans

Los Angeles, CA – September 13th, 2016 – NZXT proudly announces today the Aer RGB line of LED PWM fans combining premium illumination options with efficient cooling performance allowing users to build powerful and beautiful systems.

Operated via HUE+ and fully customizable by using CAM software, Aer RGB fans are easy to install and operate while offering a wide range of lighting options. Furthermore, the fans can be conveniently daisy-chained and assigned to different groups, letting users set up custom illumination options using CAM’s intuitive controls.

“As gamers ourselves, we know how important is to combine performance and aesthetics without compromising one versus the other. This is why we are expanding the HUE+ lighting ecosystem by designing Aer RGB to provide advanced lighting options while delivering an optimized airflow for your system. Advanced users can fully fine-tune their system’s illumination and those seeking to simply improve aesthetics will enjoy the available presets.” says Johnny Hou, NZXT’s founder and CEO.

Aer RGB fans main features:  Daisy chain and group fans together for additional lighting effects  PWM fan with optimized cooling and silent operation  Fluid dynamic bearing for long-lasting operation  Uniform light dispersion with unique light guide design  120mm and 140mm models

Choose from countless illumination options Aer RGB delivers balanced light dispersion through 8 LEDs and specifically engineered light guides. In addition to all the original lighting options from HUE+, including a dozen presets (Fading, Breathing, Spectrum Wave, Pulse etc.) and a fully controlled “custom” mode, Aer RGB introduces exclusive modes such as the RPM and Wings modes. By combining LED strips and Aer RGB thanks to HUE+, aesthetics-focused users can enjoy additional options to further polish the looks of their rig.
