Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Edition 120mm High Static Pressure Twin Pack Fan (CO-9050008-WW)

3 out of 5 eggs They do their job, but do have some issues. 10/02/2013

This review is from: Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Edition 120mm High Static Pressure Twin Pack Fan (CO-9050008-WW)

Pros: Moves a ton of air. Perfect for liquid cooling radiators. Not all that loud- considering they are built for performance, not silence. I didn't have an issue with the screws stripping out, but I didn't go He-man on them like most of the people that are complaining about this problem.

Cons: Fan speed is not reported to the MB, it shows zero RPM. I have searched on the issue and have found out that it is a common issue on the new SP series of fans as well as the new AF series- incorrect resistors were used in the RPM reporting circuit in the fans. Not very happy with that fact, considering they were 15 bucks a fan, I expect better from Corsair or from any brand at this price point! Could have gotten cheapo Rosewill fans and spent half as much on the deal. I bought these because Corsair usually makes a very good quality product. It would seem like this new line still has some issues with the design though.

Other Thoughts: Running an ASUS M$A89TDPRO USB3 mainboard, with an ASETEK closed loop cooler. ASETEK is the company that builds liquid coolers for Corsair. I have noticed a 15 degree drop in loaded temperatures over the silent (19db, 1300 RPM) Cooler Master fans I was running before. Now my PC no longer hangs during gaming, which is a huge positive for me. If you buy these fans, be aware they are not marketed as silent fans, so if you're going to complain about the noise, you should have done some more research before buying them. Mechanically, they are solid fans, but the design of the fan speed circuit is a huge letdown for me. The issue is very annoying, it kept tripping the fan alarms on my board until I disabled the fan monitoring.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have since upgraded to triple monitor Eyefinity @ 4320x900, and these cards handle the load quite well. some games play better than others, due to incompatibility with such high resolutions, but I have no complaints about the performance of the cards themselves. They have been working flawlessly for me. Do yourself a favor and unlock them already.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Great cards for the money!
