Corsair Air Series Fans Review SP120 AF120

First Look

Its worth pointing out at this point that the SP fans and the AF fans do look slightly different, the easiest way for us to explain is the SP's have 7 fat blades (far right) and the AF's have the thinner curvier blades (far left 120 centre 140)

So the eagle eyed among you may have spotted if you didn't already know that the outer rings of the fans can be replaced, these rings are indeed included with the fans and surprisingly not an additional cost option. Each fan comes with white blue and red rings so the basic colours for matching your rig are covered but considering you will have spares there's nothing stopping some paint being thrown around for all those modders out there.

Before we show you the fans in our test rig we thought we would show you a couple of photos with the different colour rings being used from the Corsair Website.

We have been using a range of the fans in a Corsair 500R with a H100 taking care of cooling, be sure to head over the page to see the full rig specs and how we tested them.

they seem to tickle you pretty good. awesome review. gives alternatives of
choices with performance to back them up. currently unvolting the sp120 perf
fan and they are a schosh louder than the quiets but have 3° better performance
on a 60mm radiator (in push only) over the quiet edition. is there really a
necessity for push/pull with these. chiming on quietness, i don't think so...

I wasn't too sure if i wanted these or the Noctuas for my rig overhaul, and even tho i am one of the few people who like the noctua fans, i'll definitely get the AF and SP fans instead!
