Introduction

Fan performance is extremely important in PC cooling. Eventually, heat has to get transferred to the air, so plenty of air has to be able to move past your heatsink and radiator fins. Getting the right fans for the job can be tricky, but once you’ve balanced noise levels and airflow, you probably want to stay with that fan for a long time. However, what happens when you realize you want RGB lighting on your great performing fans after the fact?

SilverStone is coming to the rescue for those of us who think our fans are a bit on the boring side. The company started with the release of the FG141/121 fan frames. These had the characteristic snowflake design associated with SilverStone’s logo, but the lighting could only handle one RGB color at a time. To give even more lighting customization, the FG142/122 has addressable RGB lighting. Bring on the rainbow of simultaneous colors and customization! We’ll see how these fan frames measure up, but let’s pause for some info about SilverStone first.
