This fan wins the award for worst fan mounts ever
7 August 2014
Summary: This fan wins the award for worst fan mounts ever. This fan lost 2 stars due to the fan mounts. A screw-less mounting system would have been far superior! The only benefit of this fan is the static pressure. Corsair, if you cut the price of this product in half, you have a good product. But at this price, this is a rip-off in comparison to competitors.
Summary: Originially was going to use to replace the fans on my H100i until I noticed the Static pressure an RPM of these fans. so I bought the Corsair Air Series SP120 PWM High Performance Edition - Twin Pack. which work very well and aren't really that loud compared to the stock fans that come with the H100i Barely do they even run at full speed. So haven't used yet theses yet but I assume they are just as quiet as the LED Version of these.
Summary: I coupled this twin pack to a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO on an i7 4930k. At 800rpm, it's idling around 26 degrees C, and the highest I've managed to get the temps with Prime95 was around the mid 50's. They are exactly as quiet as promised. This replaced a Zalman Reserator 3 MAX, which had my temps at 30c idle and 60c load; in addition, the pump noise on the cooler rattled noticeably, and the stock fan (which can't be changed) would drown out my air conditioner when it...
Summary: Already bought and rated these previously. Nothing has changed. Put these on every opening of my Corsair Obsidian 550D case and also replacing those of my H100i CLC. I have all the case and cooler fans operating in a custom "Quiet" mode at approx 1,070 rpm because this isn't the the easiest case to cool as it was designed for quiet operation over cooling. As such the fans are still barely audible and only noticeable when everything else in the room is off...
The most silent and effective 120mm fans I've ever used.

Summary: These are the quietest fans I've ever heard. I've built at least a dozen systems from scratch through the years, and have used many fans in them (ranging from 60mm up through 120mm) and this is the first one that has actually lived up to its hype. I did many many hours of research and comparison before selecting this model and I have no regrets with this purchase.
Summary: I purchased three sets of these to attach to two XSPC 360mm radiators that I used to water cool my PC. The included XSPC fans were not PWM, and as a consequence I could not vary the speed according to temperature with the built-in fan headers of my ASUS Rampage IV Extreme motherboard. The Corsair fans do a great job attached to the radiators. They're decently quiet and provide adequate airflow while at low speeds.
Summary: These fans were used in a HTPC that previously resided in the basement (cables through wall to TV) and now resides in the Living Room next to the TV. I was looking for PWM fans that were near silent. These fit that bill. They do not move much air compared to many other fans I have, but these generally make quite a bit less noise mostly due to them spinning much slower. As a single case fan, not nearly enough air flow.
Summary: They get the job done as another reviewer said. They have decent air flow and they look nice but dang do they get LOUD. I wish I had done a little more research before buying these fans. I'll go through the pros and cons Pros -Look nice -Decent Air flow -Rubber mounting holes -Cheap double pack Cons -LOUD -Not as much static pressure or air flow as Noctua NF-F12 or even NF-P12 -Not PWM I bought these because i've seen a lot of great builds with them.
Summary: These fans replaced the standard static pressure fans on the H100i. The colored rings are a nice touch, but unnecessary. I have read that several other people have painted rings other colors if they are not happy with the red, white or blue rings. The anti-vibration dampeners on the corners should be standard on ALL corsair fans. I may consider adding in the stock fans back to the setup to configure a push pull.
