I might get a pair to compare with f4er vardars, the only thing i can see i dont like is cables are not sleeved, i know its only a 5min fix, but for the price you would think they would be.

At least they are all black flat ribbon cables, personally I quite like the look.

Yes true, better than the coloured one's they used to do.

Have you tried removing your video card from that PCIE Slot 1 yet? I could not get my finger in there to push the locking mechanism to release the card, the top of the card was unreachable, and the bottom of the card is blocked by the motherboard heatsink. mad.gif

The problem is I only have SP120 High Pressure series to compare with.
You need to connect them to a fan controller to spin at the same rpm for a proper test.

Saying that I did connect both to a fan splitter connected to a 9v battery and they do push a lot of air for sure.
The Pro's seemed to be spinning at a higher rpm for the given voltage and produce a higher air flow.

The one thing ill say is that the new pro's have a solid and more rigid frame and are heavier. There is hardly any vibration felt in the frame when holding them compared to the SP fans spinning at a lower speed.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



that's a nice visual, thanks. they definitely look better quality for sure. hows the sound level compared to the SP's?

I much prefer the flat wire cables, much easier to hide and run in tight places. If I sleeved my fan cables they would be black anyway, so the benefit of the flat ones is just that much better imo.

Noise level is higher because they a spinning faster and pushing a lot more air through the rad. Until I get them on a fan controller and slow them down its hard to say.

The one thing I hated about the SP fans is the way the rubber mounts distorted under the slightest of screw pressure. No problem with the pro's thumb.gif

I'm really debating ordering 8 of these for my Parvum.

Gonna look great in the build, i think being squared of helps them to be more rigid, def look better than old. biggrin.gif

Loving these fans



Very nice! I ordered three of the Corsair ML120 Pro white LED versions last weekend, they get here monday due to slow as heck shipping. Can't wait to try them out. How are they comparing temp-wise to the SP120's in your opinion? Have you had a chance to compare noise at same RPM too btw?

Overall they appear to just be better in every regard from what i've seen and heard in videos and on paper etc.. They have square frame to get a better seal on rads for more static pressure than SP120s, they have higher airflow from the new blade design, they are said to be quieter at equivalent rpm with the new magnetic levitation bearings etc..etc.. so should be great radiator fans.
