Cooler Master MegaFlow – Best 200mm Radiator fan
It is believed that 200mm case fans don’t produce as much fan speeds as 140mm or 120mm fans. The truth is, there’s no denying the fact they produce incredible airflow and superb cooling performance. We didn’t expect less from Cooler Master’s MegaFlow 200mm fan.
On paper, Cooler Master is excellent at making good CPU/GPU coolers. With regards to performance, their 200mm MegaFlow fan didn’t disappoint by any means.
This fan is built for better airflow despite the considerable lower fan speeds. For airflow readings, it easily clocks over 100 CFM.

The design of this huge Cooler Master Radiator fan catches the eye. And in terms of performs, it easily delivers good airflow for cooling. If you want a bigger fan for your gaming rig there’s no reason not to buy it.
Thermaltake Pure Plus 12 RGB – Best 120mm Radiator Fan
Generally, Thermaltake has some pedigree in the tech market. Their reputation for producing good GPU and CPU coolers is rising geometrically. We liked the Thermaltake Pure Plus. This is the first fan we’re reviewing with RGB lighting, and it packs a powerful punch.
The design of the Pure Plus is quite eye-catching – it’s made even more interesting by the fact it has RGB lighting, which can be controlled using the TT RGB software that comes with it. The LED lights and fan speeds can even be voice-controlled with the app.
In terms of performance, the Pure Plus also delivers efficiently. It has a nine-blade technology which pumps out good airflow and reduces noise.

- Fan size: 120mm
- Stupendous design with RGB lighting
- Silent cooling
- TT RGB software
If you’re going to buy a 120mm Radiator fan anyway, why not buy the flashiest which gives you a good performance. We think that highly of the Thermaltake Pure Plus 120. But this unit is quite pricey for its pecks.
Noctua NF-A14 industrialPPC-3000PWM
The Noctua NF-A14 is a massive static pressure radiator fan with a 3-phase motor. The design is simplistic – with seven huge blades adorning the unit. It doesn’t have RGB lighting or software like the flamboyant Thermaltake Pure Plus.
But there are a few things that attracted us to this fan. For one, the fan is fitted with an anti-vibration pad that’s reinforced with fiber-glass – so this is one of the toughest pc fans in the market.
In terms of cooling/airflow, this fan will leave you in awe. Here are the specs.
- Size: 140mm
- Fan speed: 800-3000 RPM
- Noise level: 41.3dBA
- Airflow: 158.5 CFM
- Superb performance
- Stunning airflow and fan speed
- Fair price
- Noisier than others
- Uninspired design
- No RGB LED lighting or software
This isn’t the most beautiful fan you’ll see in the market this year but in terms of performance, it almost blows the competition out of the water. Take a second look at the maximum airflow numbers.
Corsair LL Series RGB – Best Radiator fan with RGB
If you don’t like the Thermaltake Pure PLUS for a 120mm fan, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better 120mm radiator fan than the Corsair LL PRO Series.
This fan comes equipped with 16 RGB LEDs on each blade. The noise level is considerably low even when fan speeds reach the maximum 1500RPM.
The design of this fan makes it quite an adorable unit.
You can control fan speeds and adjust the RGB lighting using the CORSAIR iCUE software.
