....proof please? Genuinely curious.

it's hard to do because there are almost no reviews with the corsair fans (I sure can't find any) and it's hard to find direct comparisons between the two. I have been able to confirm first hand that the cougar vortex outdo the corsair SP 120 quiet in both noise level and cooling/static pressure, at least in my system. obviously the high performance SP 120 are better cooling, but they are pretty loud.

Please never use manufacturer specs for comparing fans again.

Yet from reviews from what I remember they did push a lot less air then they stated.

Don't be like that. Everybody knows not to use specs listed on boxes, otherwise we would ever need reviews of anything.

You know the kind of proof I was asking for, and you don't have it yet.
