Default LL 120 fans Black Vs White LL 120 fans

I noticed that the white version of the LL 120 has higher specs than the black version any reason as to why this is? I want to use the black version of these fans on a CORSAIR H100i RGB PLATINUM.


Why are the ll 120 fans rated with higher specs?

The fans on the H100i RGB Platinum are high-speed ML-RGB fans, not LL.

As to why they have the Special Edition with the higher speed only in white ... can't say. Obviously a product marketing decision by Corsair.

You are probably right there. I am not one for over clocking so Corsair support said I should be ok to use the LL 120 fans for the radiator but they are not the best in the world for radiator cooling. Do you, or anyone else, see any potential issues with using these fans for a radiator?

It is not likely to make more than a single degree of difference between the two fans. You need to get up near 300W heat before the differences become more pronounced. Not too many people can reach that high on their CPU or even close.

That is great to know. my build is currently looking like it will include the ryzen 7 2700x and I was not sure how much heat it put off at stock clock speeds and was hoping that with the ll120s it would be ok as long as everything was at stock speeds.

I did look at some air coolers but since I am using the Crystal 280x case my cpu cooler height is limited.

You'll be fine with the LL fans. The Ryzens do, as a whole, run a bit warmer than the Intels but not incredibly so.
