Thin ARGB/RGB Fans

As the leading manufacturer of colorful fans why is it that no RGB or argb fans exist that are thinner than 25 mm?

 

Also how come you guys haven't manufactured one of your popular either ml l l or Q L fans with reverse airflow to be used as exhaust fans with lights showing? From all the research I've done on various forums, these would be incredibly popular for people that for instsnce want a good argb fan and use them in push/pull or as bottom intake fans and have them match.

The thinner the fan, the less effective it is when faced with any kind of resistance. A dust filter can reduce a couple of 15mm fans to a trickle. There isn’t much market for this and the the supply side matches that.

 

Do you know any company that manufactures reversible blade fans for the consumer market? If you are looking for a fan that looks similar on both sides for lighting, the QL is it.

Thank you for the information and while the QL is the only one is has poor performance compared to the ML or LL. Is it just that the change in the inside curve to add rgb changes the effectiveness that drastically you get such a performance difference?

The QL will have the same performance as the LL. They are meant to be general purpose fans and they are fairly quiet. The ML is a more focused design with fewer and flatter blades. That does a better job and directing air through tight spaces, but will result in more blade noise as a result.

 

There is no magic fan that can do it all. Moving the fan design to increase the strength of one area will weaken it in another (the fan that moves the most air cannot also be the quietest). I am not really sure what you are looking for. If it's double sided LEDs and appearance, the QL is definitely it. If you are really in tight spaces and need a 15mm fan, the market is pretty slim with only a handful of companies offering products. As for 15mm RGB fans, I don't know of any off hand, but the thinner design would force the RGB to be minimalistic as well.
