When it comes to fans a lot has changed over the past few years, while the core designs have remained unchanged a lot of research and have gone into making them run quieter and with the maximum amount of airflow by making changes that are all but invisible to end users.

Today most gamers enjoy frequently changing several aspects of their system, especially the color and external aesthetic of their PCs, with case modding, painting and other modifications becoming popular among most PC building communities.  Now, the drive to make PC modding easier has resulted in a lot of companies changing their designs to more neutral aesthetic to take advantage of RGB LEDs, allowing your PC hardware to be colored to best suit your desired aesthetic.

Aigo C5 series of RGB fans PC builders can change their PCs color scheme between a wide range of color options at the mere click of a button. Aigo C5 features rubber vibration dampers on each corner and fan speed control. Fans can be controlled using a three-button fan controller and 10-way RGB fan hub, but cannot be controlled through your PC or software package.

The controller also offers color mode options like Breathing rotation, Rotation Gradient, Color chasing, Rotating Water, Colorful rotation, and breathing.

The LEDs and the fan motors are powered separately, with the LED connections being powered by RGB controller unit, which can be used to power up to 10 separate fans. This unit has 3 buttons on it for modes, fan speed, and effect speed.

Fans are silent and have a max speed of 1500RPM. Even 5 fans all together are quieter than the Corsair H80iGT’s 2 radiator fans. You can change speed from the speed controller, It has 2 speed options. The lower speed is somewhere near 1300RPM. You can use it with liquid cooler radiators but at the high workload, temperatures will be slightly higher due to comparatively low fan speed.

Temperature Test

I installed these fans on the radiator replacing the stock fans came with Corsair H80i GT Liquid Cooler. Fans run quiet and have decent fan speed to maintain the temperature around 60-68C at full load. While temperature stays around 57C using Corsair H80iGTs dual fans.


Fans overall look excellent and have a lot of color modes to offer at low price point. Although you’ve to open the side panel to access the fan controller. There is no remoter or additional button control to keep outside the case. You get 5 RGB fans with one controller that supports up to 10 fans in only 68$.
