Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition Twin Pack
Here’s dual packaging again, this time for Corsair’s SP120 Quiet Edition.
It’s designed in the same way except that red is replaced with blue. The accessories are the same as those included with the previous model, too.
The price ($30 for two), country of manufacture (China) and warranty (2 years) haven’t changed, either.
But the fan itself looks different:
The SP120 has the same frame as the AF120 but the impeller with seven broad blades is absolutely different. As opposed to the AF120, the SP120 is designed for high static pressure, therefore its impeller is equipped with such impressively large and nearly flat blades.
On the other hand, the impeller is the same diameter of 112 mm and there’s still a 1mm gap between the frame and the ends of the blades. According to the specs, the SP120 rotates at 1450 RPM, producing an air flow of 39.9 CFM, which is a mere 2 CFM lower compared to the AF120, but its noise level is 2 dBA higher at 23 dBA. Most importantly, the static pressure of the SP120 fan is specified to be 1.3 times that of the AF120 or 1.29 millimeters of water. That’s not the highest static pressure among the fans in this review and, unfortunately, we don't have the equipment necessary to check it out. We just have to take the manufacturer’s word for it.
We can see silicone inserts in the corners of this Corsair fan, too.
With the same bearing type and higher speed compared to the AF120, the SP120 has lower electrical specs: 0.09 amperes and 1.08 watts.
The 3-wire cable is 300 mm long. The Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition can be purchased not only as a two-fan bundle but also individually for $17.
