The roundups continue: 120mm Fan Roundup: 1350 RPM or Lower Rotation Speed
The end note:
That said, we are proud to announce the winner of our today’s race - Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition. This superb product definitely deserves our Editor’s Choice award. Corsair has come up with yet another fan which is superior to its competitors: <award>
To me the first thing that came to mind was "fan which was superior to the competition in this roundup". They have no Scythe fans, no Noctua fans, no Noiseblocker fans and no Nexus fans... basically nothing from SPCR's "hall of fame". Kinda irks me to have such a narrow database with the best bits cut out.
That is the difference between writing a technical round up and conducting a serious test with near scientific standards. Xbitlabs has chosen to take the easy road, so in the future i'd regard their articles as "entertainment" and their results are to be seen with some doubt.
