Why only look at ML fans? I don't know what ou paid for your MLs, but I would think you would have been able to get 2 very good 140mm fans for same cost as twin pack of 120mm MLs..

cause I can reuse them as radiator fans too
good as 2x 120mm intake for case, would do great on a push&pull CLC GPU
A single ML140 has less airflow and less use than 120 twinpack, while the 120 twinpack was only marginally more expensive.

Not going to lie.....this is some really bad and inaccurate reasoning. There is a good number of fans out there as good as or slightly better than the ML in both case and rad usage.While the ML are a fine choice, they are certainly not the only choice, and arguably not the best choice. Why you simply dismissed everything else....I have no idea.

More simply put, you didn't make a bad choice in fans, and you did not necessarily make the best choice. But, your reasoning prevented you from having the opportunity to make an educated choice.

ok what fans would be better ?
why is it bad reasoning if ml120s are "a fine chioice" and "as good as the other ones" ? can't help but feel you're splitting hairs. I dismissed what exactly ? I went on and bought two good fans for a very good price, with an option to use them as both case and rad fans. I know you know more about fans but I don't really care that much into specs to spend a week analzying what would give me 2 degrees less.

It's bad reasoning due to your belief that only one fan can do what you are looking for, and simply dismissing many that can do one or both applications better. I'm not splitting hairs, merely pointing out that you went into the purchase with a completely closed mind and dismissed fans that may have been better suited for your needs. The ML is a good fan. It is not the end all/be all perfect fan for all applications, and that is what you essentially stated. It is impossible to make a correct decision without looking at the options impartially.

Tbh i dont see any better rad fans out there atm. So dunno why are you so hard on the guy.

As far as case fans they arent the best but as he said he can later reuse them as rad fans.

I'm not meaning to be hard on him. I am simply saying that thinking that one fan is the only one that works well in both case and rad applications, and completely dismissing all others without researching does not allow you to make the actual correct choice. That goes for any component or purchase, not just fans. He was asked directly why he only considered ML fans. I am merely pointing out that there are a bevy of choices out there to consider, and that his assumption about ML fans is limiting him. There are a number of test results right in this thread that show that the assumption is not necessarily correct. The point is that you can't make an educated decision if you only look at one option. It really has nothing to do with how good the ML does on rads.

Because the bought fans that are not at all optimized for the Define R5 case he plans to use them in.
And that there are probably almost as many radiators using 140mm fans as use 120mm fans now.
It is also rather obvious Klocek001 grabbed the newest fan released not based on it's performance history, because the ML series have only been available for about 3-6 weeks. The first reviews are 3-4 weeks old now, and as such we really don't have enough applied use to know if they really are good or not .. while many other fans easily as good have years of use to base their performance and life expectancy on.

Directly above. You stated that you only looked at ML because they can be used as rad fans too. I didn't throw a fit. I merely pointed out that your thought train would prevent you from making an educated decision - which it does regardless of the outcome.

Edit: I just noticed the reference to "push/pull on a CLC GPU"......clear sign that this will go nowhere. I'm out.
