    Corsair SP120 w/ PWM

    All of Corsair's Fans

    Corsair really should make a SP140 fan for 140mm heatsinks, and radiators.

    Yes the AF series. Not the SP which is Static Pressure, aimed for heatsinks and radiators, while the AF series are designed for normal case fans for air flow.

    yes, but then again 65 CFM isn't exactly great airflow either so the lame rating on the SP is a given;)

    CFM < Static Pressure for radiators and heatsinks. The SP120s High Speeds have 3.1 Static pressure. I run 2 on my 240 rad and its a Black Ice X Flow with like 20+ FPI and the SP120s blow air right through it @ only 1500rpm.

    I know all about air flow and static pressure, my point was more that their 140s were really neither AF or SP. Who knows, they may come out with new 140s, but my guess is they dropped them from lack of sales due to the laughable ratings;)

    If these are basically the same fans that are on the new H60 then no thanks. That thing sounded terrible.

    When I reviewed the original SP120s my biggest complain was that they weren't PWM.

    But really, there are better fans if you are after static pressure that already had PWM.
