    "Corsair says it can spin them faster for the same RPM"

    Really? so it can spin faster while going at the same RPM.....

    This dude needs to work on his spiel in front of the camera.

    I like the RGB fans!

    Re: Corsair's levitating and colourful fans showcased

    Much of the noise is air flow generated at high speeds, rather than frictional noise from the bearings. However, they might be a bit quieter at low speeds, and from the video, they imply that they can be run at lower speeds than conventional fans - but it seems to be more of a gimmick than a genuine improvement. I'd like to see an objective and independent test. Glad they do them in black....

    They're quieter than SP120s... but then so is my 1200cc motorcycle!!

    They're nice enough and offer perfectly good results, but I'd still choose Vardars for performance or Noctua for hush.

    Really cool, look forward to seeing noise & temp benchmarks.

    Just don't understand why they'd make an LED version of their top-of-line fans without using RGB LEDs.
