4 out of 5 eggsGood quality

Pros: I purchased this HSP fan to replace the fan that originally came with my H60 closed loop.

The original Corsair fan that I had installed previously had recently begun to make a bit of noise, upon removing the fan to inspect it and attempt to reconfigure my airflow I noticed that the that fan had started to produce a bit of a "tick" sound, my guess is the bearing was finally wearing out after a good 2 years or so of full-on use. Manually spinning the blades on that fan revealed that it didn't feel very healthy, was catching a bit on each turn and was producing a ticking sound.

I decided to order a replacement fan and this fit the bill.

The fan is very well made, feels solid and comes with a variety of colored rings to match your theme if that's important to you. (red/blue/white).

It pushes good air, and does what it's supposed to. CPU temp dropped by about 2*C all around, a very welcome improvement.

(HWMonitor and Coretemp to measure)

(Also, my room temperature is stuffy/awful despite it being winter, ambient is around 28*C)

Stock fan

IDLE: 37*C
LOAD: 65*C

Corsair SP120 PWM HSP (THIS FAN)

IDLE: 35*C
LOAD: 64*C

However, that improvement comes at the cost of noise, see below.

Cons: It's loud. It's not marketed as a silent fan so if that's what you're looking for, this simply isn't it. This fan is designed to push air through radiators on cooling solutions and it does that very well, but given that the cfm ratings are very similar to the stock fan that originally came with the cooler, I expected more. (Or rather, *less* in the noise department.)

I had expected it to match db-wise with the original fan, and performance is unfortunately very similar but with around 50% more noise than the last one. A 2*C difference in exchange for an extra handful of dB isn't worth the trade off in my opinion, but it is still nice to have a new fan and not have to worry about the other one giving out.

Other Thoughts: It's a great fan, but as another review (top critical I think?) had articulated, there are better options on both ends of the spectrum for both low-noise and air volume.

It's a good fan and does what it's supposed to, but you can do better in both regards.

For me though, this works great as I rather prefer my fan brands to match and this seemed like the best Corsair option available to me for my needs.

Plus, my theme is red/white so the red ring was a nice touch, even though it's only cosmetic.

The colored rings are nice but I sincerely hope that the rings don't add much to the overall cost, as mentioned you can do better and I find the included rings to be, although a welcome addition, a bit frilly and unnecessary.

If the rings were not included and it could drop the price by $1-$5, I would obviously opt for that.

It's a great fan, really, but even at half-speed it produces a heck of a lot more noise than the stock fan, despite not doing a whole lot that the stock fan couldn't, only reason I purchased this was because it was clear the other fan was in the process of dying and I can't be bothered with oiling/lubricating fans, in my experience even when I have re-lubricated failing or dry fans they still end up dying within a few months.

If you have dual/triple rads, I believe Newegg offers bulk packs of these, I've seen twin packs at least so you can save some dollars.


Overall, does what it's supposed to, and it works for me, but if low-noise or high cfm are priority, it may be worth shopping around some more.

This fan has achieved a decent balance between the two but for the price I'm confident you could do better. Quality fan despite my nitpicks, I can definitely recommend these along with the disclaimer that these are *not* the greatest, but they are Corsair quality.

Worth the money? Sure. The best for your money? Highly doubtful.

Go through with your purchase with this in mind.

5 out of 5 eggsLove Em!!!

Pros: I have a bunch of Corsair fans. I use the SP 120 Performance PWM for my 360mm X 45mm radiator and love them. I also have an AF 140 quiet some SP 120 Quiets, 2 SP 120 performance non PWM all great.
Some say they are loud but that's only if they run at full speed and mine never do. Color rings are a nice touch to a build.

Cons: One of mine has developed a slight tick so I needed to replace it. I haven't RMA'd it yet but will. I will not dock an EGG for this because considering all of the Corsair fans I have purchased one slight tick is not too bad.

Other Thoughts: The main reason I continue to go with these is the rings can match any color scheme I choose and the performance.

4 out of 5 eggsGood fan, but...

Pros: -Very solid construction
-Great aesthetics
-Can change the plastic ring for a different color
-Equal performance to the best 120MM fan I own
-Equal level of noise to the best fan I own (not very loud)

As far as performance goes, this fan is up there with best fan I own for a CPU fan. It kept my CPU the same temperature through all my tests as the other than did. This fan has a very nice look to it. I don't like to have LED fans on my CPU cooler, so it is nice to have one that looks very nice without lighting everything up. Being able to change out the color of the ring is a nice touch, my case is red/black, so it was nice to be able to switch the blue ring out for the red one.

Cons: -Equal performance to a fan that costs a lot less
-I wish the cable was braided

While this thing performed as well as my best fan that I own, that fan cost about 40% less than this one. This fan does have the added benefit of better aesthetics, but to me that alone is not worth the difference in cost. Other higher-cost fans I have purchased have a braided cable, kind of like most power supplies have. It is a look a really like and wish this one had it... but that is more a personal preference and not something I will really hold against the fan (just thought it might be worth mentioning).

Other Thoughts: Overall it is a great fan. I am very happy with its cooling ability, as it is equal to the best I own. It is the nicest-looking fan I own now, and is replacing my other one due to the nicer look. However, to me, the improved look over my old fan is not enough to justify the cost difference (about 40%). At the time of this writing, this fan is $21.99, if it drops in price a bit, then I would highly recommend it. If you really care about the way your fans look, then I also highly recommend this. However, if you are just concerned about the cooling performance of a fan, there are equal and cheaper options out there. Overall, this is great product, but its leading points over what I already own are not what I care about in a product.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Cooling with V6GT!

Pros: -Super Silent
-Amazing Performance
-Color Rings are a nice addition

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I put these into my V6GT due to my h100i failing multiple times. People go with Air cooling just saying saves alot of hassle, but anyway these fans definently do the job when combined with my v6gt. Keeps my 4770k at 27c idle =]

5 out of 5 eggsLove this FAN!

Pros: Very powerful fan. Use as CPU cooler fan in an Mini-ITX build (Athlon x4 760k @ 4GHz / Coolermaster 130) With PWM, barely audible until i crank up a game or do a movie encode.

Cons: At full bore, is quite loud thou not as loud as expected. Also the price, man is a pricy one, should have bought the 2pk

Other Thoughts: Mainly got this due to space constraints in my system, needed a high static pressure to ensure a properly cooled cpu. Is quite tame on the sound after setting up my speed/temp ramps via UEFI

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Cooling

Pros: Color rings are nice. The black housing is very neutral and fits better for color coordinating cases.

Very good cooling performance. On par with some other high end fans out there.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: If you want a less noisy fan, get the quiet edition.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet and Cool

Pros: This fan was indicated as a case fan that could also be used as a CPU fan, I mounted it at the rear of My case. I like the rubber mounts because they dampen vibration and the fan is as Quiet as any I've ever had but it doesn't move quite as much air as my last fan. I thought this would be a problem but I saw no increase in temps. but I saw a big difference in the amount of dust that was building up on the inside and front of My case so maybe I was moving more air than was necessary.

Cons: My only con so far is Price and that's because it was twice the price of the fan it replaced which was rated at 50,000 hours. I don't know enough about the Hydraulic Bearing in this fan to say it will outlive the old fans rating or not, only time will answer that question and I will update this review once sufficient time has passed.

Other Thoughts: You know the old saying, If it ain't broke,don't fix it? Well My case fan wasn't broke but after I installed this Corsair, I discovered that it was louder than it had to be and it was way stronger than it needed to be, it was pulling a ton of dust into My Computers Case and I was Having to vacuum it out every month. I can tell there is way less dust being pulled into the case now.
