Corsair Air Series AF and SP Cooling Fans Review (Page 6)

Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Fans


The front if the SP120 High Performance fan shows the seven blade fan through the cut away. It also shows at the bottom right corner that this fan means business with 2350 RPM and 35 dBA of noise at that speed.


As you can see by the chassis image, the SP120 HP fan is a great solution for the Hydro Series coolers or anywhere you need a lot of strong air flow to cool a component.


The open shot of the packaging is just like the rest of them, with a look at the second fan and the features shown at the bottom.


The same speech from the SP120 QE fans is given here, but the obvious difference is the values in the specs chart. I covered the high RPMs of the fan, but most notably here is the 3.1 mmH2O of static pressure that the SP120 HP fans bring to the table.


As with the rest of the fans, the SP120 HP fans are no exceptions when it comes to the hardware. There will be two of these ring groups of red, white and blue inserts. There are also two sets of the paperwork and you will get two bags for eight screws and two low voltage adapters.


It is nice to see that both of these fans match exactly, with both fans having the grooved hub covering the spindle and hydraulic bearing that these seven wide blades spin on.


The glamour shot of the rubber inserts on the SP120 HP fans is just like all the rest, so even at these high speeds there shouldn't be any rattling or chafing when these are applied to a case, cooler or radiator.


A look at the back of these frames show smooth edges that curve to the shape of the frame to allow air to glide smoothly in and out of the fan so that you can get the most out of the specs this fan is rated to accomplish.
