NZXT FN 120RB
The NZXT FN 120RB is packed into a small cardboard box with an oval cutout in its front.
Product specs are listed in four languages on the back of the packaging. Included with the fan are a PATA power adapter and four self-tapping screws.
The NZXT FN 120RB costs a mere $9. It is manufactured in China and is expected to last for no less than 2 years.
Like the rest of the tested fans, it has a form-factor of 120x120x25 mm. Its weight is 139 grams. The NZXT FN 120RB doesn't sport a highlighted impeller, interchangeable colored rings or green blades, yet it seems to be the most stylish fan in this review, in our opinion. The white impeller with nine aggressively shaped blades is in contrast with the black frame, resulting in an attractive hi-tech look.
The 113mm impeller and frame are very high quality. The sharp front edges of the blades have a big angle of attack.
The NZXT FN 120RB has a constant speed of 1300 RPM, producing an air flow of 47.3 CFM at 25.4 dBA of noise. The specified static pressure is rather low compared to fans with the same or even lower rotation speed: 0.95 mm of water.
The rifle bearing of this fan is expected to last for 40,000 hours or 4.6 years of continuous operation. The motor is 42 mm in diameter. A small sticker informs you about the electrical properties of the fan.
According to the sticker, the fan needs 1.92 watts of power at 0.16 amperes. We'll check this out in our tests, of course. The flat sleeved cable is 510 mm long.
