Cooler Mate CMT-ALF-12S: Heavy Metal

Case Modding: Enlightening Lighting
By

The CMT-ALF-12S is proof that fans do not always have to be made out of plastic. In this model the blades are held within an aluminum frame, driving the fan’s weight up to a hefty 10 ounces (280) grams as opposed to the usual 3 ounces (90 grams.) Also, the LED light is directed towards the inside. Prices for the CMT-ALF-12S start at $19 ; with fan controls it can cost as much as $25.

Metal frame instead of plastic

Two typical 120mm fans with 4 LEDs :

At 1,200 RPM the Revoltec LED FAN is extremely quiet for $8

Sharkoon UV-sensitive : a system fan reactive to UV light for just under $9
