    If the dollar price is directly translated to the £ here, £25-35 for one 120mm fan is very expensive compared to quality alternatives by Noctua, Noiseblocker etc

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    Re: Corsair launches ML Series magnetic levitation cooling fans

    $35 for two seems OK, but as said by others not if you directly translate to £. Shame, might have considered them as replacements for the excessively noisy fans on my Corsair H80iGT.

    Re: Corsair launches ML Series magnetic levitation cooling fans

    Far from a new technology, I have a sunon maglev fan in my UPS as they seem to be geared more towards longevity than noise reduction but it was quieter than the stock fan.
    nice to see them come to a mainstream supplier to give us more options as I would consider these over the Noctua in the future.

    $35 + VAT is £32, so don't expect miracles.

    Good point, I'd forgotten $ prices tend to be net of tax. Still, £16 each is not too much of a stretch IF (and it's a big if) they live up to the hype but until they are trialled directly against Noctua/Scythe etc they'll be a totally unknown quantity.

    Re: Corsair launches ML Series magnetic levitation cooling fans

    So are these the quietest cooling fans on the market and are they better than Noctua?

    Re: Corsair launches ML Series magnetic levitation cooling fans

    These are on Scan already and at a similar price to the Noctua (Corsair are slightly more expensive).

    It's hard to compare though without some real world testing as Corsiar muddy the water with a range of specs whereas Noctua quote maximum specs. It will be interesting to see the airflow and noise at the same fan speed. Noctua PWM also allows the fanspeed to be easily adjusted

    140mm Noctua NF-A14 PWM
    Fan Speed: 1500 rpm
    Airflow: 82.5 CFM
    Sound Level: 24.6 dB

    140mm Corsair ML Series ML140
    Fan Speed: 400 - 2000 rpm
    Airflow: 20 - 97 CFM
    Sound Level: 16 - 37 dB

    More than happy enough with my Cougar Vortex PWM fans.

    As with any fan at the moment, you'll trade bearing noise/Blade noise/cavitation effect on cooling depending on how yo run it, not just what you run.

    I'll keep an eye on these. Need to see some comparison videos.

    Re: Corsair launches ML Series magnetic levitation cooling fans

    OCUK has them on pre-order starting at £15.95. It's still a lot of money for a fan. I remember when you could pick up decent fans for less than a fiver not that long ago.

    Re: Corsair launches ML Series magnetic levitation cooling fans

    These days, can you not 3d print a huge fan optimised for your specific case and just fit a quiet motor to it?

    Re: Corsair launches ML Series magnetic levitation cooling fans

    I know the Noctua have a smooth drive so they don't have the PWM tick others have, any word on Corsair having a tick at low speed?
