Description

I have included fans in charts where the rated RPM is within 50 RPM of the chart cutoff point, and have also removed fans either too old or simply redundant because an updated version has been introduced. I did keep the older CORSAIR HD120 RGB simply because I no longer have the older SP120 RGB, or the SP120 LED and SP120 QE which were tested elsewhere. In addition, I have removed fans that only appear once or twice in these charts since they are not good for comparison as more entries are added to the test database. The specific RPM values chosen reflect usage scenarios most popular with watercooling even though some fans (the Noctua NF-A12x25, for instance) go higher. The charts are to be considered for comparison within this result set only and are not to be compared with results from another test elsewhere owing to different testing conditions. I went with the fan on the front with rad behind, so far these seems great as my CPU temps stay pretty low (28c idle) and in game so far only tried Rust but around 55c @ 4.8Ghz / 1.28v. A further single fan entry sees Antec join the party… and boy do they make an entrance, with not only RGB LED’s but also chrome effect fan blades! If anyone is planning a low-rider inspired gaming PC, then these are most definitely the fans for you!

Your ML-Elite and SP-Elite are a perfect match, 8 LEDs center and same color tone. The LL is going to be the oddball in the mix. It may look just fine (rear exhaust?), but be aware nothing can make the other fans do the "ring style" effects native to the LL or QL series. Another option would be to mount the RGB fans on the TOP of the case but I'd need some sort of extender for the top glass... it is possible I suppose. It'd need a roughly 30mm lift to fit the fans between the top of the outer case and the bottom of the glass. https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Fans/RGB-%26-LED-Fans/iCUE-SP-RGB-ELITE-Series-Fans/p/CO-9050109-WW#tab-tech-specs The 2nd top performer on our list and possibly most stylistically elegant in design, the Silent wings 3 from be quiet! is a must have if RGB isn’t your thing and you want an alternative route to Noctua’s basic and famed beige colour scheme; something Noctua has been working on changing with their new Chromax products. So we’ve tested them all in the exhaust case fan position and our findings are pretty interesting. The best performing fan in our testing is the Noctua NF-F12 Industrial PPC 3000rpm which may come as no surprise. It’s also one of the most expensive offerings from the list and is the strongest indicator of pure performance without being flashy, especially against those in the price range which extra premium is spent on RGB lighting such as the Corsair SP120 RGB fans. It wouldn’t make sense to conclude everything individually as the results above speak for themselves. When choosing a 120mm to act as a case exhaust, the variation in temperatures between all of the fans tested is minimal with the biggest differences coming from purposely designed slower fans against the fastest with speeds up to 3000rpm.

Quiet performance

This particular 120mm offering from Noctua sits top of our performance charts and is in no short thanks to the fast 3000rpm speed. If you’re all about performance and don’t care about things like RGB (god forbid), then this is the fan to go for! Our friends over at Cooler Master weighed in with one of each of their 3 designs of the new RGB laden MasterFan Pro 120; sending us the Air Flow, Air Pressure and Air Balance. These fans will be of particular interest during the testing, to see just what temperature difference each of these fan design & layouts make when it comes to exhaust performance. You will have to use the Commander Core as one controller since it is required to power/control the Elite series AIO. That's not a problem and it gives you 6 PWM and 6 RGB ports on the other side. The Lighting Node Core that comes with the case can be saved for later expansion or something else. https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Fans/RGB-%26-LED-Fans/iCUE-QL-RGB-PWM-Fan/p/CO-9050098-WW

LL and QL are ARGB, adressable RGB which means you can make animations for each LED and color. So the price is for maybe how many LEDs there are on the fans, and if it's RGB or ARGB, also what type of motor the fan is using and pricing high because why not. Plus the PSU, but I'm happy to not have this controlled by iCue for the moment, as on the 280X case I have it will be out of sight anyway. I understand some RGB may behave funny but I'm not super bothered about that as long as they all light up :D No fancy RGB lighting to be had here, as they are all about performance. be quiet! currently dominate our CPU cooling charts, so we are very hopeful for awesome performance in our test.

Two year warranty

Each of the 120mm PC case fans tested below were tested inside of our be quiet! Silent Base 600 system with a very powerful Intel i9-7900X 10 core processor which is perfect for rendering, multi-tasking and production work flows. Each fan was installed into the rear of the case and was set up as an external dump at the rear of the case. Our be quiet! Silent Loop 240 240mm AIO CPU cooler was installed with the radiator mounted in the front of the case with the fans set up in a way which draws air from the front panel. The ASUS ROG GTX 1060 STRIX graphics card was installed to give the system a more “natural” feel and we felt this was the right way to go to emulate a real world set up. Currently due to the change in premises, audio testing isn’t going to be possible due to large amounts of road works outside causing excessive ambient noise levels. Last, but certainly not least, we have the premium cooling specialists from Austria…Noctua. These guys were pulling no punches whatsoever, sending us 2 variations from their premium range, but also 2 speed iterations of their Industrial PPC fans. These guys really mean business! Can I add the SP120 onto the Commander core as well?I don't care too much for fan speed control on the SP120, they can run at 100% for all I care. It’s very obvious that when cooling components, a variable amount of airflow is needed to assist in heat dissipation for whatever it is from VRM heat sinks, graphics card VRMs etc. It’s no secret that the range of available case fans over the last couple of years has exploded with stalwarts such as Cooler Master, Noctua and be quiet! leading the way in PC case fan design. On top of that, you have legendary companies like Corsair redefining their current technology and adding some of the best RGB we have seen from a case fan into the equation.
