Vantec Spectrum UV LED Fans
article by David, 29 November 2003

Introduction

Case fans usually serve as tools for ventilating your computer casing. They also serve as heatsink fans when mounted on large heatsinks, and on occasion also serve to add pizzazz to one's computer case, especially when it comes to modded cases. We've reviewed similar items in the past, including the CoolerMaster Neon LED fan, and more recently the Vantec Spectrum UV Fan.

This time round, we take a look at a variation on the Spectrum UV Fan, but with UV LEDs installed - the Spectrum UV LED Fan.

Vantec recently launched this line of Spectrum UV LED fans for the modding community, coming in five tasty colour combinations: blue, green, orange, blue+green and blue+orange. Unfortunately, Vantec only makes these in 80mm only at the moment. Vantec sent over all five available colour combinations, one of each, for review.

Specifications

  • Model: SP80UVLED-OR, SP80UVLED-BL, SP80UVLED-BG, SP80UVLED-GO,
    SP80UVLED-GR
  • Fan Size: 80x80x25 mm
  • Rated Voltage: 12 V
  • Rated Current: 0.25 A
  • Fan Speed: 2900 RPM
  • Air Flow: 36 CFM
  • Noise: 34 dBA
  • Weight: 68 gm
  • Life: 35,000 Hours
  • Bearing Type: Ball

Running off the 12V line, these fans are rated to push 39 CFM, with an amperage of 0.25A. Rated at 34 dBA, the fans are pretty silent while managing to push 36 CFM of air, which is pretty good for an 80mm fan.

The packaging is pretty standard; with a clear plastic box which shows off the contents nicely. The box is clearly labelled 'UV LED', which indicated the type of fan contained inside. The packaging is very well suited for display on retail racks and shelves, and look very attractive and appealling.

Lets take a look at the contents of the box.
