+UV 80mm to 120mm fan adapter
Part 1 – The Packages
Today I am looking at a couple of new things from Akasa, on the left we have PowerEyes and on the right a UV 80mm to 120mm fan adapter. We will start off with the fan adapter and move on to the PowerEyes.
Taking the adapter out of the packaging to find it was solid was nice, I couldn’t bend it or distort it (unlike other makers versions) this was a nice touch. Overall the adapter was not damaged and protected well.
My mounting choice was in the side panel of the acrylic case, I chose this position as it would provide better cooling to the Gfx card. I would go through fitting this but it’s just straight forward.
As you can see the Adapter is UV reactive and looks good under UV lighting, there is not much else to really say with this item as it a simple adapter except that it’s well made and looks nice with UV light. So shall we move onto the PowerEyes.
The Power Eyes are lights are for inside the Molex connectors, these go on the Female side and can be slotted into your hard drives, cdrom’s, and anything else that has a female end. The way they are packaged is like a printed circuit board and are available in 2 color options, mixed and blue. This is not bad and each one comes off easily with a little bend. To show how these work I am just going to show you a sample of a bunch of Molex plugs fitted with these and a Drive as well. For the best effect make sure the lights on the circuit board are facing out towards the male Molex.
I liked these, Both items were nice Ok there’s not much you can say about a fan adapter, but it is the most solid one I have seen and the UV reaction is not too bright, it also managed to help drop my GFX card temp by a few Celsius nice. As for the power eyes I think these will appeal to people looking for something different but don’t and wouldn’t know how to remove there Molex connectors. Plus the power eyes want invalidate your warranty were as changing the Molex plugs will.
Overall both products were good the 80 to 120mm adapter was solid and nice, the power eyes are just what some people will be after to finish that effect they have been after.
Both items deserve a silver award the adapter for being solid and lightweight and the eyes for the effect both good products in their own right.
