I read ThermalBench review of the Corsair ML, and they do seem really nice indeed. I'm interested in the fact you confirm you can run them 500-600rpm.


This is my current setup, on the GPU I got 4x140mm SP140's but which I need to replace with ML140 pro's.
The rest is all ML120 pro's and works lovely! No sound and best fans I've ever used.

EDIT : I'm using the pro version of the ML. I just saw there is also a normal version. So don't get mistaken biggrin.gif

My credit card allows me to collect points through a loyalty scheme. I just found out I could use those points to buy vouchers to a local hardware vendors that carry the Corsairs.

150.- off the total should be nice smile.gif I will sport full Corsair ML Pro Red as a result smile.gif

Hehe, yeah those are always nice. Works the seem with my bank where you gain points based on interest. Congrats! Great fans which you wont regret. Why did you go for the led editions? And how many fans are you gonna use?

Great choice there. As an added bonus the ML 14cm and 12cm fans look nearly identical, and it's always nice to have matching fans all over when you are building a PC which lets face it is going to be sort of a show-piece as well. I actually went away from Eloops because I couldn't aford to buy 16 matching fans, so I ended up on 16x Arctic F12s instead which perform remarkably well for their price point.

Swiss credit cards used to have poor loyalty schemes (I would earn points from the local wallmart equivalent). They switched some times ago to this new scheme, and added 2-3 IT consumer shops which carry IT hardware. This is good stuff smile.gif

I read several reviews, everybody praise them for silent operations at low speed, which is how I intend to use them. Most tests place them narrowly better than Vardar at low speed.

I went for red led because in the end the overall price with 150.- off was still cheaper than as many Vardars at full price from EKWB, and I guess I will theme my build white and red.

I went with 12 fans :
- 4x 120 for the 480 rad
- 4x + 2x 140 for the 560/280 rads
- 2x case fans (not sure where I would place them yet, i think one on back - top to blow in on MOSFETS, the other one not sure.)

Without the 150.- off I would probably not have gone with those, they are crazily expensive !

Oh yes, definitely a good buy and best fans on the market.
I personally got 8x Push/Pull for my top 480 rad, 4x push for my bottom 560 rad, 3x push in my front 360 mount (no rad) and 1x outtake fan. So I got 16 in total right now biggrin.gif

I like the MLs myself, they're exceptionally good looking fans from my point of view. They also look like they'll be a good fit for the GTX rads they'll be used with.

Regarding Thermalbench's testing of the 120 versions, the following may be something to watch for as you're putting your rig together (the same is said of the 140mm versions):

Another note of importance- users of the SP120 PWM fans may have noticed that there was a control issue wherein more than 3-4 fans on some PWM headers resulted in a shorter range of speed control, especially so on the lower RPM end. I mentioned this in my review of the SP120 Quiet Edition PWM fans and I have some mixed feelings as I report a similar PWM implementation here.

Not sure how similar that situation is to the PWM issue with BeQuiet's SW3s, but it does have me curious enough to do some testing of my own on my SW3s using an oscope (ala the Diva). Mainly because I've got SR2s for my build and decided on 23 plain vanilla, standard 1,000RPM PWM SW3s, controlled using AquaSuite.

I have a sneaking suspicion as to what may have happened there (the pwm thing).

I'll see for the PWM thing... or not, as the Splitty9 only propagate back 1 PWM signal, so I wouldn't know if fans are running a little off smile.gif

In other news : according to CL, my order will ship around May 20th !!!!
I hope the cases are genuinely awesome, because that's 1 month and 20 days after ordering, and was definitely not was was announced when I ordered.
Factoring delivery time, i will get it end of May frown.gif

Glad to hear your case shipped. smile.gif They are very well built, but do give everything a good looking over upon receipt. If you note any issues, CL is also very good about addressing them quickly.

As for the PWM thingee, I'll be doing some testing on my SW3s once I can get my hands on an oscope. I have a sneaking suspicion about why certain fans may have such PWM issues, but won't say more until I run my tests. I was going to do the testing earlier on using a buddy's Tek 465 scope, but he no longer has it.

Looks like I'm gonna have to twist my own arm and get my own. Gonna opt for a 4 channel MSO, which will also come in useful elsewhere.
