Throughout Fan Week, Corsair invitations its neighborhood 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 ‘saying’ the Corsair LL 500mm RGB cooling fan. Which begs the query, why have a bunch of tiny followers when you could possibly have only one huge one?

It is a large cooling fan outfitted with RGB lighting that appears like one among its iCUE SP140 RGB Professional Efficiency (opens in new tab) followers bought hit by a reverse-shrink ray. At the moment, I am unable to consider any PC case that would even accommodate one thing this large. 

Contemplating how sizzling my workspace has been in latest days, I could possibly be satisfied to drop an irresponsible amount of cash 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 large enough case might dream up if Corsair ever had been to promote these unhealthy boys.  There’s nothing cooler than seeing big variations of issues which are alleged 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, in reality, 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 want had been actual issues, Razer nonetheless takes the cake with issues just like the floating gaming mouse and robotic assistant who’s form of a jerk. I’m additionally nonetheless holding out hope for Logitech’s racing wheels for canines.
