Prizm X 120 ARGB


Limited to triple packs at the time of writing that will set you back around $65, the Antec Prizm X 120 ARGB offers three digital RGB fans that extend their bright and punchy lighting to the fan hub as well as an outer ring, offering a little more pizzazz than the Deepcool FC120.

They use standard 4-pin PWM fan plugs and 3-pin digital RGB connectors, so they’re easy to hook up to your PC and don’t have proprietary cables. Antec also includes a hub and lighting controller with five fan and lighting ports, which can be controlled from your motherboard or other devices with single PWM and LED cables.

Noise was mid-table against the other fans on test this month, but a fair amount of vibration meant the Antec Prizm X 120 ARGB’s sound quality was average. At full speed, it was a poor result in terms of airflow and efficiency, though, sitting at the opposite end of the scale to the Deepcool FC120.

Dropping to 1,000rpm didn’t improve matters for noise and airflow, although its efficiency was better. While the Antec’s speed was mid-table in our noise-normalised test, its airflow and efficiency were again near the bottom, while the Deepcool FC120 was cheaper and consistently in the top three.

Poor airflow and efficiency let down the Antec Prizm 120 RGB, despite the good package. If you want affordable, decent performing RGB fans, the DeepCool FC120s are far better and cheaper.
