Corsair QL Series – QL120 RGB LED Fan Kit Review


Corsair QL120 RGB LED Fan Kit

As many people may have noticed, unless you’ve been hiding in a shell the last couple of years, then you’ve seen that RGB has really taken over the tech world. Everything from RAM, motherboards, cases, power supplies and fans come with options with RGB. Fans having lighting effects have been around for a couple of decades now by using single color LEDs, but RGB fans have only been around for a few years. It has even made it’s way into other industries such as the automotive world. My car literally came with built-in RGB from the manufacture and have I to admit, it is AWESOME!!
