Construction, design and features …
Let’s look at the fans in detail first. With their transparent, milky fan blades, they ensure good refraction; besides, you can see the copper coils inside. Depending on the model, the fan blades are differently shaped, here again Air Flow (left) and Air Balance (right) in comparison:
If we were still wondering why “only” fan screws are included in the scope of delivery, as many other manufacturers still supply rubber coupler, we now recognize that the Cooler Master RGB fans always have their decoupling.
The 4-pin RGB connection makes it possible to operate the fans on “external” RGB controllers. Cooler Master also advertises compatibility with Asus Aura Sync, ASRock RGB LED, Gigabyte RGB Fusion and MSI Mystic Light Sync. Very practical, but of course you are then limited to the functional range of the respective manufacturer.
Cooler Master currently recommends the following mainboards for the RGB fans:

What you can not see is that the housing is magnetic so that the floor is easily adhered to the sheet of the PC case. The magnet is sufficiently strong. The press-in nuts are nevertheless a useful alternative, e.g. for aluminum housings.
Both the fan and the controller make a high-quality impression.
