Corsair continues to move closer and closer to allowing us to build a near 100% Corsair system. Since they have secured their position in the case and PSU markets, they look to concentrating on a smaller aspect of those two market segments. This time they bring us the Corsair Air Series Fans.
The AF (Air Flow) fans are design with long blades with a steep curve. These fans are designed to maintain a high level of airflow with minimal noise. These fans are intended for intake areas, unrestricted case sections, and low noise systems. The AF fans will come in 140 mm and 120 mm sizes at release.
The second model is the SP (Static Pressure) fans. These fans are designed to maintain a high level of static pressure. Ha, I see what you did there. These fans have a wider blade designed for restricted areas in case which need air flow to have more force behind it. These are ideally used for radiators, CPU coolers, and that slot in your case obstructed by hard drive racks.
At $16.99 for the 120 mm fans and $18.99 for the $140 mm fan, these are definitely premium items. These are Corsair products, so I can’t even imagine them failing. At the absolute worse they will be solid, well built fans that perfectly match with Corsair products. I hope, like the case and PSU markets, these fans force everyone else to step up their game.
