How do the corsair SP120 quite editions for the rads sound ?


Only minor issue is that I wanted to theme it back and green . so far the Motherboard is Black and read and the good fans are also black and red haha . Might end up being red after all !

Hehe, want to buy mine? I have 16 of them that I'm looking to get rid of. I bought 16 EK Vardars to replace them with. IMO they're the best bang for your buck: Take a look @ VSG's review here: http://thermalbench.com/2015/03/29/corsair-sp120-pwm-quiet-edition-120mm-fan/3/



They can push the same amount of air as other fans like the SP120s but do it at lower decibel levels.

Here's how the Vardar F4 (2200 RPM) compares to the popular Gentle Typhoon AP-45 (2150 RPM) and Noiseblocker eLoop (2400 RPM):

And how the Vardars perform in relation to each other (F1/F2/F3/F4):

They're really cheap on NCIXUS:

I got 16 for $265 after shipping/insurance.

Not that my opinion matters, but check the rig in my sig. It's not my current rig anymore, as I just finished my new one with a Titan-x, but:

1.) I had an overclocked 3770k
2.) I had not one, but two 7970 Ghz editions (HOT cards)
3.) full cover mobo block

The EK 480 and EK 360 kept the temps in check without a hitch - I had all of my fans and pumps controlled via CW611 with temperature sensing, and in over two years of running that rig I don't think I heard them spin up once.
