Cooler Master MasterFan Pro RGB Fans and Controller Review
Peter Donnell / 7 months ago
The software is very easy to download and install. It’s very clearly laid out, with a simple yet in-depth interface for customising your lighting effects. An RGB palette as well as sliders, and numerical values can all be used to adjust the colour.
Simply pick your effect/mode, chose your colours, and the results are applied immediately to the fans.
Thanks to some funky frequency technology, the fans can display multiple colours at any one time. This creates some very unique effects as to how the colours mix, giving you a kind of foreground and background colour.
The frosted effect of the fan blade captures the light very well too. They’re not blazing like the sun in terms of brightness, but the colours are rich and tasteful.
One of the unique features of these fans is that you can tune the frequency to the RPM of the fan blades, or not if you desire. This creates some pretty sweet effects, which you’ll see in action shortly. This effect can make the blades look like they’re spinning much faster, or slower than they actually are. Get the right setting, it’ll even make them look like they’ve stopped or are spinning backwards!
In the video below, you can see me clicking through the various effects on offer. Stick around for the second half, where you’ll see me changing the frequency of the lighting, allowing the blades to look like they’re stopped, spinning backwards and more. I would like to point out that the fan speed is constant in all of these demonstrations.
