    Bluegears B-Flexi Fan Review


    (Page 1 of 5 )

    One thing that will never get old in the world of computing is keeping your PC cool. And even better than keeping your PC cool is keeping it cool in style. Today we will take a look at the b-flexi fans from Bluegears to see how they can add coolness to your PC in more ways than one.

    It seems you cannot walk into a computer store today without literally bumping into a multitude of ways to cool your PC.  There are case fans, drive fans, card coolers, CPU fans, video card fans, and many stores are beginning to even carry water-cooling supplies.  The point I’m trying to make is that there is a lot to pick from when deciding to add cooling to your computer.

    When I first received this package from Bluegears, I had to stop and pause.  Just a couple of fans?  It wasn’t until I pulled them out and looked that I noticed that, not only are they illuminated, you could switch them among three different colors (red, blue, and green), or use no light at all.  That’s pretty cool, I thought.

    Before we open the box, let's take a look at the features and specifications.

    Features:

    • Change lighting colors simply by using a switch
    • Titanium chrome coating
    • Color options of red, blue, green, or turn the LED lights off

    • Low noise level with high airflow
