No, as far as I know no ML120 reviews / tests out yet.

NDA isn't up, and most have either just received the samples or they are still on the way. But as I said, these really shine with high airflow restriction relative to others. Low airflow restriction won't make them any better than an average fan, so don't buy them to replace heatsink fans unless bearing noise is a concern with your existing fans.

i'm not sure bearing noise on HSF is even audible inside a case.

ML120 is just your typical innovative case fan, not the kind of new stuff to get hyped on.

Wait, what? NDA is in effect, but you can already buy these fans? Odd.

Depends on the fans and the case. I can hear bearing noise of some fans, if the RPM is low enough.

Well, it's going to sell a ton anyway as with the SP120 ring fans. Only this time it will be justified, especially once street pricing comes to <= $22 per ML120 Pro fan. The dual pack ML120 Basic looks like a good deal so far.

Yup, but most retailers haven't actually received stock yet. Either way, prepare for a bunch of overview videos and some random temperature based tests. Despite how fans tend to be one of the most expensive part collectively in builds, the media generally doesn't care much.

Thank you for all your comments, also your guide is rly interesting but i fail to see an answer to the question in speaking.
But you are right. It's not on the subject. I came here asking for a fan suggestion and people here asked for my case setup so it's not rly my fault derailing. wink.gif

I mean, I can imagine some people are spending too much money on fans (me included biggrin.gif), but for most people a 5 pack of Arctic F12 is plenty good. And it goes for like $21. Hard to imagine it being the most expensive part.

When you do it it is your fault. Saying others did it is like jumping off a cliff because other do. tongue.gif

Corsail is notorious for releasing product to for pre-sale and even actual selling before NDA end date.
Maybe it's to see if their cult is still blindly following and buying whatever they are hyping. biggrin.gif

I probably shouldn't say anything about the fans here then biggrin.gif

I hear you. It's way more cost efficient to use something like the F12 or F14 at $4-7.00 each and replace every 2-3 years (which is about how often most rebuild / upgrade systems) then buy $20+ fans for 5 years of use. And that is assuming they only last a couple of years. Mine are going fine and they've been in use over 4 years now.
