CES: Arctic BioniX P120 ARGB fans can be connected ‘wirelessly’ in series

Cooling specialist Arctic has waited a long time to introduce RGB-lit fans, but in 2021 the time will be there. The BioniX P120 A-RGB builds on the existing Bionix P120, but also has a modified design in addition to the lighting.


Three BioniX P120 A-RGB fans linked together.

With a thickness of 30 millimeters, the new fans are a bit thicker than usual, and the housing around the blades has also become a bit more robust. The five fan blades themselves appear slightly smaller, presumably because of the semi-transparent ring that houses twelve argb LEDs.

The smaller blades seem to have some impact on cooling performance. The BioniX P120 A-RGB produces up to 48 cfm of airflow, where the version without lights comes up to 67.56 cfm. The static pressure is also lower, it is now 2.1 mm / H2O.

At the same time, the rotational speed has been increased by 200 rpm at both the lower and upper limits: the new fan can make from 400 to 2,300 rotations per minute. The noise level is unchanged by 0.45 sone, according to Arctic.

Arctic has come up with its own solution for the cabling. The PWM cable and the 5-volt argb cable are combined via an adapter into one cable with seven pins. On the other side of the fan is another 7-pin input, which you can use in combination with a double-sided connector to connect multiple fans together. According to the German company, all this should benefit cable management.

Arctic sells the BioniX P120 A-RGB separately or per set of three; with the latter you will receive an RGB controller. The separate fans cost € 22.99 each on the company’s site, a tenner more expensive than the LED-less BioniX P120. The set of three fans should yield $ 54.99.
