Mag-lev bearings require proper manufacturing and handling, defects and mistreatment affect them in major ways.

Hydraulic bearings start out quieter but they produce more and more noise as the bearing wears out. They also handle mistreatment far better.

Notice that mag-lev bearings are far more resistant to high temperatures, so they do live far longer as processor cooler fans.

Check out the be quiet! Silent Wings 3. There is a comprehensive review on thermalbench.com

That will be a problem actually. Most PWM implementations suffer from noise at some voltage ranges. The ML series seem affected so far.

Personally, I would visit the Enermax site, check what's available and see if a local dealer that accepts rmas has any of the ones I want available.

Quality control is very important with mag-lev fans and nowadays manufacturing quality is inconsistent, meaning that you might get a dud or two.

The good news are that if the fan doesn't have issues after some months, it won't die for at least a decade or so.

Can you comment on who has the highest quality control for magnetic levitation fans?

Almost everything is made in China nowadays so everyone is affected.

Best bet is to be able and rma locally, in case you are affected.

Which Enermax series uses a maglev bearing?

Everyone has different ears.

Here's a resource I used when deciding on fans: Cooling Technique (youtube)

Just a basic recording of various fans from 0-100%

I found that the noise profile was more important to me than DBA. A lot of fans make a buzzing or humming or whirring etc. etc.

In the end I sold myself on the $20+ Corsair MLs. I forget what my second choices were, I think Gentle Typhoons & something else

I've also had Antec TrueQuiets (140mm) that I thought were extremely quiet, & would continue to use them at $8-12, except they're 3-pin


ML140 review- no regrets other than price. Paired with a 30mm radiator. Use SpeedFan to keep them @500-600 RPM (~30-35%) until 70 degrees C. They don't get audible for me at 5 feet distance until 650-750 RPM / ~35-45%

Corsair 140 ML's but only the 1200rpm version, the 2000 rpm is much too loud.
I'm tried both corsair quiet edition and ML's both rated at the same speed, size and the ML's are indeed quieter
