Throughout Fan Week, Corsair invitations its group to showcase all of the greatest fan-related content material and memes they will supply. In flip, the {hardware} firm launched a convincing video on their Twitter and Tiktok account ‘asserting’ the Corsair LL 500mm RGB cooling fan. Which begs the query, why have a bunch of tiny followers when you can have only one monumental one?

It is a huge cooling fan geared up with RGB lighting that appears like certainly one of its iCUE SP140 RGB Professional Efficiency followers received hit by a reverse-shrink ray. At present, I am unable to consider any PC case that might even accommodate one thing this massive. 

Contemplating how sizzling my workspace has been in latest days, I may very well be satisfied to drop an irresponsible sum of money for a light-up field fan to maintain me cool and annoy my spouse, who hates all issues RGB. Part of me would like to see what kind of colossal gaming PC a modder with a sufficiently big case may dream up if Corsair ever have been to promote these dangerous boys.  There’s nothing cooler than seeing large variations of issues which might be purported to be small. 

As a result of we dwell in a time the place even memes flip into precise merchandise (I am taking a look at you, Xbox Mini Fridge), I did attain out to Corsair in regards to the 500mm fan, and it confirmed that the LL 500mm RGB fan is, the truth is, only a joke. And that bums me out. Although, at this level, I would not rule it out. 

If we’re speaking about joke merchandise we have been want have been actual issues, Razer nonetheless takes the cake with issues just like the floating gaming mouse and robotic assistant who’s type of a jerk. I’m additionally nonetheless holding out hope for Logitech’s racing wheels for canines.
