Thermaltake’s Riing Trio 12 RGB fans can be controlled with your voice

Thermaltake Riing Trio 12 RGB

Thermaltake has launched the Riing Trio 12 RGB, a new 120mm PWM radiator fan that is part of the company’s TT RGB Plus ecosystem. First announced at Computex 2018, the Riing Trio supports voice controls for its lighting effects and fan speeds, which should help it stand out from the crowd of RGB fans today.

The Riing Trio 12 also supports Amazon Alexa, an interesting feature for a product category not usually associated with smart features. This means you can control the fans using Amazon’s Echo, which is pretty nifty.

You can tell Alexa to set the fans to a certain lighting mode or even enable a “Hello TT” showcase mode. On top of that, another unique, but probably not very useful, feature is the ability to sync the lighting effects with local or international weather conditions.

For example, clear skies will cause the fans to go translucent, while rainy days will cause them to flicker blue.

Alternatively, you can talk to the fans via the TT RGB Plus app, which is available for both Android and iOS. According to Thermaltake, support for Amazon Alexa and TT AI Voice Control will arrive at the end of Q3 2018.

The Riing Trio fans feature three independent LED rings and come with a total of 30 addressable LEDs. These LEDs can also be synced with Razer’s Chroma lighting ecosystem, so you can match them to mice like the Razer Basilisk that support Synapse 3.

The fans use a more robust hydraulic bearing system and anti-vibration rubber pads built directly into the frame to reduce noise output.

The fans are already listed on Thermaltake’s website, but there’s no pricing information yet.
