Cooling today’s high-performance PCs is a complex task, and a single fan design can’t meet every need. The fan you use to exhaust hot air out of your case might not be the best fan to mount flush against a heatsink or radiator.

Static pressure is the measure of how well a fan can push air in this type of highly restrictive environment, and this is where the SP120 excels. The advanced design of the SP120 provides the higher static pressure that radiators and heatsinks demand, while maintaining a quiet noise profile. Seven ultra-wide, custom-molded blades deliver high static pressure, and the customized fan enclosure helps airflow move in the right direction. The rubber mounts and the advanced hydraulic bearing system combine high reliability with low-noise operation. It’s an ideal solution for radiator and heatsink use, as well as drive bay intakes, and other locations where you’re mounting a fan directly adjacent to a heat source. Three included colored rings allow you to customize the look of the fan to match the rest of your hardware.

  • newegg High Performance Operating at 2350 RPM, the Corsair Air Series SP120 performance edition delivers a strong static pressure of 3.1 mm/H20 and an expressive air flow of up to 62.74 CFM, perfect for use with radiators and heatsinks.
  • newegg Silent cooling The seven ultra-wide, custom-molded blades offer silent cooling, while rubber mounts and the advanced hydraulic bearing system are combined to give silent cooling.
  • newegg Three colored Rings Three included colored rings (red, blue and white) allow you to customize the look of the fan to match the rest of your hardware.

1 out of 5 eggsNo PWM. Very poor cooling. Noisy.

Pros: None so far.

Cons: No PWM fan control. Temps run about 10C higher with these fans than they did with the stock Rosewill fans that came with my case. An RMA was the only solution which tech support had to offer, which I did at my own expense. The replacements are just as cr@ppy as the originals. Tech support takes weeks to respond to problems and I have to believe their level of knowledge is no better than mine. If I could give this product a zero rating I would. Don't waste your money.

4 out of 5 eggsGood fan but a bit pricey

Pros: Strong airflow through the restrictive punched grille of my case suggests it does deliver on its promise of high static pressure, hydraulic bearing should mean long life, good looks, feels like a high-quality item, can be quiet at lower RPM, silicone isolated screw holes

Cons: Too expensive for what it is, IMO. It's in the range of the Gentle Typhoon, which I have yet to had a chance to test, but is widely regarded as the best high static pressure, quiet fan there is. At least the Corsair is widely available.

As some have noted, this thing is pretty noisy at higher RPM, to my ears, anyway. I have a dB meter, and in free air at max speed, it gets the same dB(a) result (60 dB at 6 inches distance) as my Arctic F12, which to me sounds FAR quieter. But, of course, free air stats (noise, flow) mean nothing if that is not how the fan will be used, and that type of use is not what this fan is meant for. It does suggest, though, that the tone of this fan is harsher than other fans at the same nominal dB(A) value, which would probably also be true when used as intended.

Other Thoughts: I did a few tests with these fans installed as exhaust fans (pushing) in an unused case, using a spare PSU with the fan disconnected for power (don't really need the fan to cool a PSU powering a 3-4 watt fan for a minute or two at a time) so as to not taint the dB readings.

I know people keep saying that for low-restriction applications like case ventilation, use non static pressure type fans. Well, unless you've cut out the metal grille the air is supposed to go through (or if it is one that has a wire grille like a Lian-Li), there will be significant restriction... these stamped grilles can be less than 50% open space.

At full bore in the case, the Arctic fan came in at 60 dB, while the Corsair was measured at 63 dB. The Corsair's airflow through the restriction, though, was much greater... in my laughably unscientific test of using a stopwatch to see how long the fan takes to fill a 30 gallon trash bag (I don't have space to describe it here, but its set up to make a reasonably good seal... I am not just holding a bag up to the fan), making sure I was able to repeat the numbers, the Corsair did it in 7 seconds, while the Arctic took 10.

What I really found interesting was the test with the low-noise resistor in place on the Corsair. Noise level dropped to 58 dB-- quieter than the Arctic. The sound to my ears was about the same as the Arctic-- soft, quiet, not objectionable (keeping in mind that the Corsair sounds louder even when the dB meter says it's not, at least in the free-air test). The best part was when I did the bag test, and the slowed-down Corsair still inflated the bag in 10 seconds, same as the Arctic at full bore.

So with the low-noise resistor in place, this fan outperformed the Arctic (a fan I like for its balance of noise and performance) by the numbers, and in terms of my subjective ears, matched it. It's still a high-performance fan and it can be heard; I am not saying it's silent with the resistor. Some people doubtlessly will consider even the slowed Corsair loud, just as some call the Arctic loud. "Loud" is relative; to me, the slowed Corsair and the Arctic are not loud at all.

I have other lower-performance silent case fans that I can't hear at all at a normal distance; one of these scored 50 dB @ 6" in the free-air test, compared to 60 with the Corsair and Arctic. It feels like it hardly moves any air at all, though; I didn't test it for flow through the case, as it was never under consideration for use in my build.

You could get the same performance from the Corsair as with the resistor by reducing its speed with a fan controller or via software like Speedfan if your motherboard supports speed control of 3-pin fans as mine does (and if not, there is a PWM version of this fan)... and in that case, you also have the extra cooling performance of the full-speed fan available if you should ever need it.

1 out of 5 eggsRattling. Terrible customer service

Pros: looks great. Nice heavy feel. Decent performance.

Cons: Terrible rattling when upside down at low RPMs. Corsair would only honor the warrenty if I paid for return shipping on thier faulty product. Came out of the box rattling. Done with Corsair.

4 out of 5 eggsbzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Pros: Built well, looks great, pushes a lot of air.

Cons: It's loud. I underestimated how much noise 35dba puts out. It sounds like there is a weedeater running a yard over and I have the window closed.

Other Thoughts: I'll probably end up buying a quiet edition in a few days if I can't get used to the sound.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat quality fans!

Pros: Robustly built
Pleasant acoustics
Interchangeable color ring to better match a scheme
Perfect for any heatsink or radiator

Cons: Deceptively loud and noise inefficient
Somewhat short cable

Other Thoughts: I bought a case from Corsair, and it had a $20 mail-in rebate. I was so happy with it, that I decided to use it to buy one of these fans. (I love tinkering.)

If you look into reviews, you will read and hear about how loud these fans are, even though they perform great. Their acoustics are actually not that bad at all. The noise they make is fairly pleasant and noninvasive, even though it is definitely there. It is a mixture of the motor, which sounds smooth, no clicking or harsh whir, and the slight woosh it makes from the movement of air. It is an easy sound to ignore. Other fans can have motors that produce an annoying whine at full tilt, or have an enormous woosh from the air turbulence, both which are maddeningly annoying.
On the downside, it still is loud. Even at 1800 RPM, I can managed to discern this fan from the five others in my case that I can have running at full tilt. (Yes, they may be quiet fans, but there are five of them, all running at full speed.) At this the same 1800 RPM, the fan does operate quite as well as some other fan brands that have a max operating speed of 1500 RPM. So even to get a par performance that fan will be operating more towards the louder end of the spectrum.

Long story short, if being quiet is your concern, you still better look elsewhere. I just wanted to say that it is not the jet-engine that everyone seems to make it out to be. However, for performance, it is in a price-point that is hard to ignore, and at has been shown to give top-tier performance.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fans

Pros: Always great fans. Never have any problems with them and they always cool great when combined with a radiator. If you're doing case cooling, get the AF120 or AF140.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fans

Pros: Not a heck of a lot to say here. Very, very nice fans. Produce great air flow mated to my Corsair H70 cooler, producing very nice temps. I barely notice them personally, as they do run pretty quiet. Would definitely recommend for use on your 120mm radiator. Great choice that produces nice results.

Cons: N/A.

Other Thoughts: The comments above says it all. Great fans. Great choice for use with 120mm radiator. Not a bad thing to speak of here. Would definitely recommend to anyone using a 120mm radiator.
