Default Can a Maglev fan substitute a FDB one is a PSU?

Hi, independent of the cost how much better would a Maglev Fan be in a psu than a sleeve bearing one or even a FDB?

Would it last longer?

Will it be noisy?

A good Maglev would in theory be the best choice, also the most expensive. That's why currently the most high-end PSU's are using FDB fans. A good FDB can also outlive a 10 years warranty. A sleeve bearing fan is the cheapest choice that's why sleeve bearing fans are mostly found in low-end power supplies.

The ML120 & ML120 Pro fans are essentially the same. The Pro versions give you the option to swap out the mounting sections for different color options.

As for the quality of Corsair's ML fans; they're basically the best options on the market right now if you're looking at a fan designed with a balanced characteristic. As long as cost isn't a factor.

At $25-30 per fan, they can even make Noctua offerings look affordable.

But they would make sense in the best PSU, like an improved AXi, people would accept to pay 20$ more for enthusiast products.

No they wouldn't.

It looks good on a bullet point, but it adds no benefit to the PSU and A HELL OF a lot of cost.

I wanted to know how these fans compared to other bearing types and I wanted to know how can it be used in a psu, and if it would be a good idea to implement those on psu's.

Yeah. "Technically" it is two different questions.
