Agree if someone whats water cooling than do it right and do a proper loop. thumb.gif

 

A small portion of their products have issues. I'd call that a mole-hill.

 

Especially compared against the other brands on the market which cannot bring proper feature sets to the market or just outright bad products.

 

Like wise, Corsair is taking care of it's customers. Which is the most important part.

All the issues / problems reported the first week they got into customer's hands is the proof.

Google "H100i problems"

Read Newegg customer feedback

There's an equation out there, I last saw on XCKD, to calculate how much energy you need for liftoff. If we're just trying to get and keep you a few inches off the ground, it should just take a large collective of fans.

Quality Check and the majority of product testing go on CoolIT's end. That's what Corsair pays for.
If it didn't work out, it sadly didn't work out.

Corsair can only do their best to try and improve the design with discussions between engineers as well as offering their best customer support possible. Which they have had pretty solid customer support.


Thermaltake Water 2.0
NZXT Kraken

The warranties are not as long, but the quality is better vs Cool-It's options.

The FLX is not PWM.

In Noctua's naming, they are called PWM if they are PWM fans. The FLX fans come with voltage adapters to change from 7/9/12v. The ULN fans are generally the same as the FLX but slower speed (generally the FLX's 9v option) and come with the adapters as well.

As for PWM options:
DeepCool UF140-X / Logisys SF140
Akasa Apache Black Super Silent 140mm PWM / Rosewill Hyperborea 140mm (same fan.)

Logisys SF140's are definitely the option to go for, bang for the buck wise. They're $10 at Newegg right now, while the Hyperborea's are out of stock.
All four are good fans, but really you only have 2 designs available on the market for good PWM 140mm fans.
You got that right , picked up the sf140 for 12.00(on special) , great fan , same quality as the sf120 . As good as a fan gets , and at that price unbeaatable

Well the Be Quiet! Silent Wings 2 have arrived and are installed. And yes they are very quiet. Out of three fans 1 seems a little off balance but is not audible. I have a Cm HAF XB which is completely open. and at night when there is no noise I only hear the faint noise of airflow.

I purchased all 3 in PWM. 2 140mm and 1 120mm. I am a little concerned about the airflow of the 140's for my UT60 rads, but i wont know for a while since I had to send it back for damage in shipping. mad.gif I am not worried about the 120 at all.

I can also confirm that the fans mount just fine to my radiator using the soft corners and simply pushing the rad screws all the way through before mounting. Note the mounting clips that come with the fans work great and are very secure. The soft corner option is also 2 sided. One side is a little longer so you can give just a 1/2mm space from the fan to the case to avoid vibrations on metal.

The 140's do not have a huge amount of pressure, so they don't feel like they're pushing a lot of air.

 

They do move what the box says though. They are solid fans, and for somethin like the UT60, shouldn't be an issue.

Also, glad to hear the soft-mounts allow for radiator usage without an issue.

 

I sent my SW2's onto a friend as he's my audio engineer, and his rig needed to be dead silent. They were the best compromise between airflow, noise, & pressure.

+1 For the Silentwings 2 120mm PWM's. I have an NB M12-PS a TY-141 and a Noctua 92mm and it's the quietest one of all.
