Post Subject: Starlet 120mm UV Fan
Posted on: Oct 6, 2008

With the demand of computers constantly rising, proper case ventilation has become an ever growing concern. Luckily manufacturers have been able to accommodate this demand. Cases are becoming larger and so are the fans. Almost only 5 years ago, it was strange for anyone to own anything but 80mm fans for cooling, now it's strange for them to own anything but 120mm fans. This is why I'm glad to be reviewing the Starlet UV 120mm fan by Vizo.



Right out of the box, the Starlet looks great. It definitely has strong UV coloring to it. These fans make excellent components to anyone into modding or for anyone who wants to make their computer stand out. Even when the fan isn't running, it catches the light extremely well and won't have any problems catching any attention.



Now in addition to the cool colors, the fan is well let by a series of UV LEDs. Here's some shots to really show it off.



Now one of the big reasons for a push to 120mm fans is first, they're larger, and can move much more air, which is what today's demanding systems need. In addition to moving more air, they also have far lower noise levels than their 80mm predecessors when you look at comparable CFMs. This makes them ideal for other uses as well such as HTPCs since they can cool your system while keeping the noise down.



Now it's time for the first hand experience...
The fan hooks up pretty easily. You can connect it to the motherboard with the 3-pin connector or use the 4-pin adapter and connect it to the power supply.

Once the fan was running, it maintained an extremely low noise level that was barely audible once the case was closed up. In addition to that, like you saw before, the lighting effect looked excellent.

If anyone's looking for some cooling that's also eye catching, I'd really push for the Starlet by Vizo. The lighting looks excellent, and size of the fan helps keep the volume down while keeping the CFM up. When you have solid performance and looks, it's hard to go wrong.

If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

seeeeexxxxxxxy

way to go VIZO
aesthetics AND performance =]

im sure they have other colors, but the one displayed here is gorgeous. if manufacturers stay in this line, we wont have anything to mod except cases.

I love almost all their products, and this one seems like a good product for me to test in khaos (parts are almost coming together, but thats on the hush)

we should compare fans to yate loon 120's, (or 80's based on the obvious) seeing as they get the most coverage anyway.


**safety note**

try not to think of the price of the part your cutting in half.

I just noticed something, does anyone else see the optical illusion with the two pics of just the fans by themselves, that as it enlarges it looks like it rotates a little?

I know you need to be able to see the animation, IE8 does this, and I think ff does too, not sure for safari and so fourth though
