Noiseblocker's old NanoSLI bearing was a modified sleeve bearing using magnetic stabilization. I don't know what they have changed with the NanoSLI-2 bearing as I haven't had a chance to open up a fan using it and unfortunately Noiseblocker doesn't even post any technical diagrams about the bearing itself.

With that said, the old Nano-SLI bearing was quiet but it wouldn't outlast a 2BB or FDB fan as the oil chamber was not seeled and it didn't use any kind of rifling to circulate the oil throughout.

In a raw technical performance standpoint; for the most part yes. The biggest downside if you ignore cost is the power draw of a MagLev bearing. As a single, or even 12 fans in a system, it doesn't add up to much. On the other hand, when you have a datacenter full of systems each sporting 8-12 fans per. It can easily add up.

Generally speaking, a MagLev bearing should produce less noise and work longer than a FDB or 2BB. The bearing of a fan isn't everything though.

You said you're looking for the most durable product and the ML series fits that bill while still being a product that's able to perform well in most scenarios.

Mag lev gives radial support, but one still needs a physical axial 'bearing' so one hasn't got total levitation.

Does anyone know the MTBF hours for the Corsairs?
