Kingston's KHX-FAN Kit
The top of the main fan housing has that nice anodized HyperX blue that fans of Kingston have come to love over the years since the HyperX line began in 2002. It is hard to believe that it has been nearly seven years, but it has. If you look real close you can see the four holes at the corners for assembling the legs or clips of the fan.
Taking a quick look at the bottom of the Kingston HyperX Fan you can see the two 60mm fan that are wired together and into one 3-pin fan header. The fans are of course rated for 12 Volts and draw up to 0.16 Amps a piece, which is minimal. When it comes to noise they operate at a whisper-quiet 25 dBA, with a maximum acoustical noise level of 28 dBA. The fans are attached to a metal frame and can be easily removed should they ever need to be cleaned. Clear fan blades are known to get dirty over time, so it is a good thing that they can be removed quickly.
Once you assemble the HyperX Fan it should look like the one in the picture above. It should be noted that Kingston did sheath the 3-pin power connector wire and that is great as it gives a clean look to any case. The sides of the Kingston HyperX fan have cut-away "X" logos that quietly add both branding and flare to the system.
When installed inside a custom gaming rig that has a blue and black color scheme taking place, the HyperX Fan really does add some bling to the chassis.
At night the eight LEDs come to life and really light up the inside of the case.
