Corsair Air Series AF120 Quiet Edition Fans

VIEW GALLERY - 48 IMAGES

Packaging for the AF120 QE fan looks much like that we saw for the AF140. The most obvious is that this is a slightly smaller package and that this shows it is a 120mm fan capable of 1100 RPM and 21 dBA. Of course this has a three year warranty as well.

From the side you can see a rig with these fans applied and that we have now moved into the "œtwin packs" Corsair sent me. As far as the information goes, this is the same as what we find on the front.

The twin packs open up to expose one of the fans while giving you another view of them in a chassis along with the three features in the images at the bottom.

The back offers a few words explaining the AF120 series, repeated five times in other languages, with a specifications chart to show you what separates the AF120 QE over other fans in the series.

Since this is a twin pack you get six color rings, three for each fan.

You also get two full sets of the product guides, the "œStop" literature and the pair of hardware bags with screws and low voltage adapters.

I stacked the fans to try to give you a couple different angles to see the isolation material that Corsair stuffs into each corner of the fans.

Since I didn't show it last time, there are holes in each corner of the fans to accept tabs from the color rings. There are pretty easy to get out and swap, but secure enough that operational speeds of the fans will not vibrate them loose.

We have stepped down from the 11 blades of the AF140 to now nine blades in the AF120 QE. The ultra thin blades still allow for good air movement, but little on the end of static pressure.

Another thing I have been checking along the way is whether or not all of the part numbers found on the manufactures sticker do in fact match the packaging. This way I can be sure I am testing the right products as well as being sure there wasn't any mix-ups at the factory.
