The Corsair RS MAX is a 30mm thick fan constructed of premium Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP). If LCP technology sounds familiar, it is because some of the top case fan producers are using it, including one I purchased for comparison. The question to be answered by this review is whether the RS120 MAX is worth its price-performance premium. Let’s find out.

What Corsair Wants You to Know

Key Features

  • 30mm Thickness: An increase of 5mm over standard fan thickness allows for a larger fan blade, improving cooling performance.
  • PWM Controlled Speeds: 120mm: Powerful PWM-controlled fan speeds from 425 RPM up to 2,000 RPM, pushing up to 72 CFM of air with 4.2mm-H2O of static pressure. 140mm: Powerful PWM-controlled fan speeds from 400 RPM up to 1,600 RPM, pushing up to 104 CFM of air with 2.4mm-H2O of static pressure.
  • Premium Liquid Crystal Polymer Construction: Incredibly strong and durable with excellent rigidity, reducing blade vibration and increasing performance.
  • CORSAIR AirGuide Technology: Anti-vortex vanes direct airflow at your hottest components for concentrated cooling, whether used for intake, exhaust, or mounted to a radiator or heatsink.
  • Quiet Operation with Magnetic Dome Bearing: CORSAIR’s Magnetic Dome bearing minimizes noise and reduces friction for greater longevity.
  • Zero RPM Mode Support: Supports Zero RPM PWM signals to completely eliminate fan noise at low loads.

Very well done review, Brother @RageSet. Your testing was thorough and the presentation was excellent. 

 

I am surprised there was a distinctly measurable difference between these two good fans. The price is pretty steep though, as mentioned in the review.

Love the charts. Agreed, the presentation is great. 

 

Too pricey though. I'll really have to talk to you guys more about how to work with my 13900KS.
