Corsair Air Series - AF or SP

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a Corsair 450D Case. Planning to have some purple LED fans for the location below ...

 

Rear x 1 (120mm)

Top x 3 (120mm)

Front x 2 (140mm)

 

I just want to know if i should go with ALL AF, or a combination of AF and SP. I prefer Quiet fans 

Thanks.

AF are case fans. SP for rads and heatsinks.

SP fans are for high static pressure applications. Meaning they're used to force air through radiators or filters. If you're not using them against something that is impedeing their airflow then the AFs are fine.

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

So I should probably just go with ALL SP for the 6 slots according to the performance curve, right?

I wouldn't get the led fans they are cheep the last ones I purchased off of newegg came to me broken it's something with the plastic they use on them 

i would just get led strips 

this is also a good suggestion, i can always change up the colour as well if i have the led strips  ^^

These aren't the results for the LED versions which are significantly worse and aren't applicable.
