Package

Xigmatek did a great job protecting these fans in a hard clear plastic casing. Also, since the transparent packaging reveals the fans, this will clearly ensure that you know what you’re getting the moment you pick these up. They have also properly labeled each package for each specific model, which will help clear up any confusion. They briefly describe each model offering easy to use “at a glance” information.

Flipping these around, Xigmatek goes into great detail, listing all the specifications for each model. This is great to have, as it’s helpful to know what you are about to purchase and know if the specifications of these fans will meet your needs.

 

 

Now that you have taken a look at the package, lets move onto unpacking of each one.

    Do you think these fans would be good to use with the H100?

      The 120mm models will not have a problem, however the 140mm models you may run into fitment problems, You will run into problems as they won’t fit side by side on the H100.

      They provide good airflow CFM wise, However if you plan on using 4 of them at full speeds you may pick up a little more noise, but you can use the fan controller on the H100 to turn them down if needed.
