Die easily (AVOID!)
I ordered 2 of these and one of them stopped working correctly very shortly after first use, 3 of the LEDs would not light up. I called FrozenCPU who was good enough to send me out a replacement no questions asked but now either the replacement or the other one from the original order (not sure which) is having the same problem. Obviously the build quality on these is poor, not even getting into the waterproof part of it. This is probably true regardless of color but I have the orange ones. AVOID these at all costs and get another kind, probably brand too.

Misleading and wrong connectors
The pictures are misleading, does not come with sleeve or heatshrink, just bare wires. Worse, the connectors on the end are much too large for the bulgin connectors. Even in the pictures here you can see that they are huge on the bulgin pins which are designed for 2.8mm connectors. These only work if you turn them in strange ways and crimp them. Save the headache and get the mod/smart 2.8mm ones.

Colors are not adjustable
I thought it might be good to have some fans that could adjust color for different aesthetics so without any more information I picked 2 of these up. They are not what they appear to be! There is virtually no information on the lighting feature of these even from the manufacturer so I thought I would put the info I learned here for others. While they technically can display all 3 colors, there is no control mechanism for this. The color they display is based on the power going to the fan / RPM the fan is spinning at. They are designed to be part of temperature-based control system so the colors go from blue at the slowest speed, to green, to red at full speed. Which means if you simply have them hooked up to power to run at full speed they will always be red. Additionally, I hooked them up to a potentiometer to test the range and while it is pretty easy to get red or blue there is a relatively small speed window in which they display green. So unless you intend to use them with the Lian-Li fan controller or similar temperature-based fan controller and want the matching color-changing effect (which is cool, don''t get me wrong, just not what I was looking for) there are better fans out there.
