At the bottom part of the front panel, the Raidmax Blackstorm comes with one 120 mm fan that glows blue when turned on. This fan comes with a standard peripheral power connector, so you can’t monitor its speed. The manufacturer doesn’t publish the technical specifications for this fan. There is an air filter in front of this fan.
