SilverStone Air Penetrators & Corsair H80 good or bad

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
in advance, thanks for any input. It's appreciated.
First time at water cooling,& yet to install it, I been considering replacing the standard 120mm fans with 2 SilverStone Air Penetrator 120mm fans. I been doing research with very little results. One forum says it may not be a good idea due to power issues with the Air Penetrator fans.

Other forums I have not been to find out much information.

If anyone has any input, I would surely appreciate it

i remember reading that while they have pretty good linear airflow, their static pressure is lacking, thus making them "bad" for rads. they're good case fans but for a radiator, i'd look into gentle typhoons.
