Depends on your use case if the ML120s are best for you but MagLev and FDB are roughly equal to one another. If all factors of the fan design were the same (e.g. blade geometry, housing, materials,...

You could paint the blades if you want.



If you hear any grinding, or motor stuttering then I would take them apart and oil them. My suggestion is synthetic model train oil. It's pretty easy...

They all sell off the review samples most of the time. Rarely do they keep review samples unless there is a use for them.

It's just a 120mm AIO kit. Admittedly a more advanced than your Asetek rebrand but still just a 120mm kit.

Should still be Protechnic.


Must be some screwup on Kitguru's part. OEM is FSP. So far an exclusive design to BeQuiet. Not in use by anyone else at the moment.
