Xoxide Acrylic Laser Cut 80mm Fan Grills
review by David, 29 November 2002


Fan grills serve the purpose of preventing the blades of a spinning fan from getting fouled by unwanted items, including wires, cables as well as the odd finger or two. Usually, these fan grills would be mounted on fans inside the case. With the spread in overclocking and cooling madness, people have mounted their fans so as to suck air from outside the case itself. Of course, having an exposed fan isn't very good, as not only does it look ugly, your pet cat might get sucked in too. Hence, the need for fan grills outside the case. Now, some might regard having plain chrome fan grills a little boring, and look for more swanky alternatives. Unfortunately, the really nice ones like the Marvel licenced fan grills as well as the laser cut metal fan grills also cost a bomb, so they're not exactly easy on the wallet.

Xoxide has provided an alternative that is cheaper, and looks just as good, depending on how you place them. Thus, the focus of this quick look at the Xoxide laser cut acrylic fan grills.
