Corsair ML Fans Overview

Corsair ML Fans Overview

By Singularity Computers

Corsair has recently released their new Corsair ML Fan range. ML stands for Magnetic Levitation which refers to the new bearing technology. This is an interesting feature because it means that the fans have almost no friction. This will mean lower noise but most importantly it means that these fans last a very long time. They come with a 5 year warranty which is something you don’t often see on fans. They are a great looking fan, very industrial, clean and understated. The only branding is in the centre of the blades and although it’s obvious, it’s still quite subtle. They have a really solid high quality look and feel to them. They come in a range of versions and colours including three different LED versions.

These fans will make excellent radiator fans because of their specifications; they have a high Static Pressure and CFM. They are also designed for maximum reliability. There is something which needs to be strongly considered when purchasing these fans. At maximum RPM they are extremely loud at 37 dBA. These fans cannot be used without a very good form of fan control. They are PWM so you can connect them up to headers on your motherboard and control the RPM that way, but I suggest something a little more effective such as a good fan controller or ultimately the Aquaero. These fans will be very quiet below 1500rpm, this is what I suggest using them at. If you want that headroom though it is there when these fans ramp up to their maximum RPM.
