Alphacool Rise Aurora -- RGB LED fan for radiators

Posted on Friday, Jun 25 2021 @ 12:20 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
German cooling specialist Alphacool has a new watercooler radiator fan. The Rise Aurora is a 120mm PWM fan that combines high static pressure with ARB LED illumination. It has a maximum airflow of 69.98CFM, a noise level of up to 31.5dBA, and a static pressure of up to 3.17mmH2O. The fan has a 3-pin JST connector for the ARGB LEDs, there are 12 LEDs in the frame plus another eight in the fan rotor hub. The lifespan is listed as 50,000 hours. You can get the fan via the Alphacool webshop for 16.29EUR.
The Alphacool Rise fan offers a wide range of control as well as superior Digital RGB LED lighting. The individually controllable 5V aRGB LEDs paired with the fan's special design can create some unique effects whilst offering performance.

Brilliant illumination
There are 20 digitally addressable 5V RGB LEDs built into the frame and hub that illuminate the entire fan. This creates a unique illumination that looks very impressive. Thanks to the recessed light diffusers, the light is distributed evenly, and you will not see sporadic uneven lighting.

Wide control range and silent
The fan can be controlled from 0 to 2600 rpm via the 4-pin PWM connector. In addition, it offers a silent mode, with which the fan can be regulated down to 0 rpm and then they will only start when they are needed above 350rpm. At 800 rpm, the fan is nearly silent, but still offers a good airflow (118.9m3/h) paired with a high static pressure (3.17mm/H2O). This makes the fan perfect for mounting on radiators of a water cooling system or for alternatively, as a case fan. Decouplers are located directly on the corners of the frame. The soft foam pads reduce the transmission of vibrations to the case, which in turn reduces noise. Tear-off edges on the fan blades also provide a significant reduction in noise.

Connectors?
The fan is controlled via a 4-pin PWM connector. The cable is 40 cm long. This allows the fan to be connected to the motherboard or a fan controller without the need for additional adapter cables or extensions. The digital aRGB LED illumination is controlled via a JST 3-pin connector and adapters are available to change this into a standard 3 pin aRGB connector if required.
