120mm radiator fan roundup at AnandTech

Posted on Monday, October 22 2012 @ 20:18:06 CEST by

AnandTech has published the second part of their 120mm radiator fan roundup, in an attempt to find the best fan for a watercooling setup. You can read the article over here, the reporter recommends the $6.99 Rosewill Hyperborea as a good bang-per-buck model, while Corsair's SP120 delivers the best performance, albeit at a higher price level of $17.99, but the dual-fan bundle for $23.99 is priced a lot more reasonable.

Additionally, the reviewer also recommends the low-noise Noctua NF-F12 and the Enermax Magma which delivers performance that typically takes a much louder fan to achieve.
Ten new contenders; some pulled from my own stock, one pulled from retail, and some graciously and generously sent by vendors. The results from these fans will be added to what will wind up being absolutely massive comparison charts. There's an entrant from Scythe, Noctua's gold standard NF-F12, the Enermax Magma, and even a couple contenders from Cooler Master and Rosewill. Is there something available that's a better choice for Corsair's H80 120mm radiator, or are the stock fans still the most well-rounded option?
