Out of the box
Out of the box, each one is classic NZXT. Black frames with white fans set inside. The 140mm fan has a total of nine blades, while the 120mm fan has seven. Each fan comes with a little baggie of screws and another bag with the screwless rubber fasteners. There is also a 3-pin to molex adapter included in each box. I really like that NZXT included both a standard 3-pin for those who want to control their fan speed via software as well as the capability to run directly from the PSU. Each fan’s power cable has a three speed control switch on it.
Installation is about as straight forward as you can get with fans. If you don’t know how to put a fan in your computer, then you really need to go back to PC Kindergarten. I opted for the rubber screwless mounts, as I intended on taking them back out after I was done. I actually had the fan mounted and connected in less than 30 seconds using these. But they are old news, and we’re reviewing the fans here.
