CORSAIR was excited to announce the launch of its new ML Series of high-performance cooling fans. These fans are equipped with a new magnetic levitation bearing and custom rotor design, which allows it to deliver higher airflow, lower noise, and better cooling.
When powered on, the magnetic levitation bearing completely suspends the blades from the motor housing, allowing for almost frictionless operation, thus letting the ML Series to offer lower noise at higher RPMs.
The ML Series is offered in ten different variants, allowing for those interested to customize the build and performance.
Each fan features a huge PWM range, giving users total control over how the fans perform. At the lowest speed of 400 RPM, it pushes airflow at 16 decibel A-weighting, or dBA. All fans also push up to 97 cubic feet per minute of air.
Those who want to customize even further can utilize the removable color co-coordinated corners to accent the color scheme of your build. In addition, the ML PRO LED version mounts four ultra-bright LEDs into the central fan hub to radiate lighting through the frosted blades.
Michael Hooper, Product Manager for Cooling at CORSAIR, stated, “We built the ML Series to be the ultimate fan, offering exceptionally low noise levels to those who value silence and insane airflow for those who demand it. With the use of the Magnetic Levitation Bearing and custom rotor, we’re able to create a single fan that lets the user choose their perfect balance between airflow, static pressure and noise with no compromises.”
Here are the specifications, as well as prices of each:
Magnetic Levitation Bearing: Harnesses Magnetic Levitation technology to provide lower noise, higher performance, and a longer lifespan.
Custom Rotor Design: Delivers the perfect balance between high static pressure and high airflow, operating flawlessly in the most challenging environments.
Extensive Control Range: A 2,000 RPM control range gives you total control between low noise and absolute performance. At 400 RPM ML Series 120mm fans provide 12 CFM of airflow at just 16 dBA for near silent running. At 2,400 RPM, the same fans offer a huge 75 CFM of airflow, at an un-intrusive 37dBa. You choose the balance between silence and performance, and the ML Series delivers.
Color Customization: Replaceable corners mounted to anti-vibration rubber dampers allow you to match your fans with the rest of your build while delivering quiet operation at higher speeds.
Bold LED’s: ML120 PRO LED and ML140 PRO LED are available in Red, White or Blue, with ultra-bright LEDs mounted to the center rotor, outputting a vivid blast of light and color.
