Poing I talk to corsair tech guy, we talked about 30min, I know its there product but h assured me that the ml series is the way to go in your case. I told him I wanted to cool a amdfx8350 cpu and I am using a 980tisc for my gpu. He told me ii would be making a great choice getting the ML fans also to use the 120 mm fans on the rad and the 140mm on the front. There not RGB there led but I am not into the RGB

Thing right now I just want motoko to stay cool.So if I were you call corsair and talk to the tech guys and go from there. After all its your choice in the end.


Yes they cost a little more but is your computer worth it?

Sorry, but of course corsiar guy will tell you to use a corsail corsair product.Brain anoxia same way a honda rep will tell you to buy honda and not BMW. They will promote their product above all others regardless of which is better for your application. After all that is what their job is all about.

I’m not saying the ML is not a decent fan, but there are at least half a dozen or more just and some better for similar or less money.

But their rep is not gong to recommend anything without a sailboat label on it .. As in not a product of company he is representing. .

Which are intake and which are exhaust? What are our temps?

I have 3×120 ml pro LED in the front intake (corsair 900d) 1x140mm in the exhaust. My ambient is between 27-29c, keep in mind I live in arizona so my house is at a constant 26c in my house itself. My temps for my CPU are 32-40c depending on load (6850k) and my GPU stays about 30-40c…..All water cooled as you prob have guessed dual loop.Brain anoxia but its a pretty quiet system and I haven’t noticed the low wine people complain about but that being said my fans dont drop to 400 rpm ever

There are other fans that are def better, noctua make the best fans imo but lets not forget, we look for a cross between aesthetics and function. Aslo, lots of people just look at the rating on the fan and think one is better then the other but they are rated at max RPM so you have to adjust to get the true rating. I got them because they are good for both AF and SP and I wanted the white LED’s

We put the case fan at the end of the tube, and let it blow outward. At the halfway point, we completely fill the tube with straws, causing them to form a kind of honeycomb structure. We do so with good reason, as the straws ensure that the air that is sucked through the tube is straightened out, which in turn ensures that the air speed between the straws and the fan is equally high at any point in the cross section of the tube. We then put a so-called anemometer at the halfway point between the straws and the fan. Because the air speed is nearly identical across the entire surface area, we can determine the total air displacement by multiplying the speed with the surface area (π x r²). When using SI units, we’ll then arrive at a value expressed in m³ per second, which we will in turn convert to cubic feet per minute, or rather, the CFM value that is often used when talking about case fans.Brain anoxia

While we are unable to measure the static pressure directly, we can measure the airflow that remains after attaching the fan to a radiator. To this end, we attached all case fans to the radiator of a NZXT kraken X41 water cooling kit.

The measurements were performed twice, on 7V and 12V. We determined when the noise levels of the case fans reached 30 db(A) at 10 centimeters as well. This limit of 30 db(A) is not arbitrary: this is the point where sound is not hearable on normal distance and normal circumstances.
