Holy ****. How can there be so much difference?

Not so sure but the AP-15 moves loads more air than the SP120.

I quite like the look of this for a side fan filter / grill?

I think the best I've seen is whatever is on Darkcyde's side panel. But I have no idea what that is...

looks very similar to the second filter i posted but i'm not so sure if i like it. Something round and dark would look good

Oh, sorry, only saw the first one.

I agree though, round and dark would be great, although I've never seen a dark one. I would definitely choose the round one between those two.

Maybe the room didn't have the same ambient temps? In my house, my computer room can swing by 10C based on time of day or something else. Dropping 15 degrees by going from an SP120 (I'm assuming the quiet edition at 1450 RPM) to an AP-15 (1850 RPM) just isn't done unless something's wrong with the other fan or the ambient temps are out of alignment. The AP15 sits right in between our two SP120 models, specs-wise. If you slow a SP120 High Performance Edition down to around 1800 RPM you get very similar specs in real-world usage and lower noise levels in our tests.

Specs on the GentleTyphoon AP15:

Speed: 1850 RPM
Airflow: 57.7 CFM from the website, 58.3 CFM from the box (Nidec says 58 CFM for theirs)
SPL: 28 dBA box and website (Nidec says 30 dBA for theirs)
Static Pressure: 2.9 mmH2O (from Nidec)

Specs on the Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition:

Speed: 1450 RPM
Airflow: 37.85 CFM
SPL: 23 dBA
Static Pressure: 1.29mmH2O

Specs on the Corsair SP120 Performance Edition:

Speed: 2350 RPM
Airflow: 62.74 CFM
Sound Level: 35 dBA
Static Pressure: 3.1mmH2O


So converting ~20CFM into 15 degrees doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. But realistically for a side panel fan you'd want an AF120 anyway, since there's nothing pushed right up against the fan and you're giving it a few inches before it hits the GPUs.

Hi George,

Thank-you for giving us the differences.

It is a strange one indeed. I fitted the side mesh and tried both SP120 & AF120 quiet editions and saw very little in temperature drop whereas with the AP-15 is saw constant drops in temperatures. Strange i know and believe me i'd rather the corsair product as most of my build is Corsair branded.

2 X AF120 Quiet additions were so ineffective at cooling my graphics cards when i tried them, i actually took them back for a refund.

The SP120 was making a buzzing / vibrating noise when fitted to the side panel i made. The AP-15 doesn't make those noises redface.gif Maybe my SP 120 is broken somehow although it seems to work fine just pushes nowhere near as much air as the AP-15

Also are you able to tell me where i can get hold of spares for the 600t in the UK please?

The black surround on the side window the threads are made of plastic and a couple of mine came off when undoing and doing back up

cheers thumb.gif

Yeah, I don't get how Darylese is getting such a difference. I would assume they wouldn't ignore ambient temps as they've been playing around a lot with their fan setup trying to spot cool their GPU, so maybe they have a bad SP?

Problem i'm having is a vibrating / humming noise coming from the fan is annoying unless i turn the SP120 down to 1200RPM and its quieter.

Anyone else own a SP120 and notice any buzzing noises? I just fitted an AP-15 fan and no vibrations that i can hear but the SP120 looks much better!

Yep either a dust filter or a fan guard or both possibly


dude why u dont use AF corsair fans ? SP is for watercooling
post #8880 of 18195
I had a twin pack of AF120's and fitted them to the side mesh and they did absolutely nothing. Wasn't impressed with them. I do have one as an exhaust fan which is fine but as an intake to cool GPU's testing showed it made no difference redface.gif

Also everyone was telling me i bought the wrong version and should have got an SP because of the spot cooling.
