Fremont, California — May 3, 2012 — Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the new Air Series™ line of PC cooling fans. Unlike most other PC fans in the market, Corsair Air Series fans are offered in airflow and static pressure models, each specifically optimized for specific PC cooling roles.

Air Series fans are designed to deliver an extraordinary balance of airflow and low-noise to users who want to upgrade their PCs for quieter operation or higher performance. All feature an advanced hydraulic bearing system and rubber mounts for low-noise and reliability, and include red, white, and blue color rings to allow users to customize the look of their PC.

High Airflow Fans for Efficient Large-Volume Cooling

Air Series AF120 and AF140 airflow fans are designed to intake cool air into, and exhaust hot air out of, modern PCs. They are for ideal for mounting on the side, top, and rear of cases, to reduce component-killing heat. The airflow fans are designed with ultra-thin, custom-molded blades optimized to flow high volumes of air in unrestricted spaces with at least 3cm of clearance. They are available in a 140mm Quiet edition and in 120mm Quiet and Performance editions.

High Static Pressure Fans for Efficient Cooling on Radiators or Heatsinks

Air Series SP120 fans deliver focused air pressure in situations where air needs to be blown through a restricted space making them ideal for cooling radiators and heatsinks. They feature seven ultra-wide, custom-molded blades and a custom enclosure that delivers high static pressure, while maintaining a quiet noise profile. Available in a 120mm size, SP120 fans are available in Quiet and High Performance editions.

Nice. I was wondering about a good fan to replace the stock H80 fans. These should be it

They're quiet, but my H80 doesn't seem to change the fans speed, even when pushing the speed button on the pump. My only gripe is that i had to turn the airflow to exhaust to see the red ring like in the press image. Temps are fine though...so far

Did you do before and after temps?

Curious what they look like.

Temps are slightly higher with the new fans. But I'm not sure if that's because i have them as exhaust instead of intake. They look nice however I'm not thrilled with the fact that the fan cords are shorter than the stock H80 fans. I had the wiring running along with the water hoses.

Actually they are more quiet than stock fans. I just haven't noticed any difference in fan speed when i change the performance level on the cooler.
