You can find out all the technical details about Corsair fans at the Corsair website (Products, Cooling, Air Series Fans). There are two lines of fans: the "Performance Edition" fans and the "Quiet Edition" fans. As these names imply, the former have higher air flows while the later operate more quietly (at lower air flows).
There are two "Quiet Edition" models: the AF model and the SP model. The AF model is used when air flow is unrestricted (such as the exhaust fan at the back of the case); the SP model is used when air flow is restricted (such as air flow through drive bays or through a radiator/cooler).
The AF120 and the SP120 are 120 mm fans while the AF140 is a 140 mm fan: Corsair Air Series AF120 Quiet Edition Single Fan (CO-9050001-WW),Corsair Air Series SP120 Quiet Edition Single Fan (CO-9050005-WW),Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition Single Fan (CO-9050009-WW).
There are some really great review videos for the Corsair fans on a popular video website. The review on the TastyPC channel was particularly helpful to me, since it quite clearly compared the air flows and noise levels of the various fans. I made the decision to buy the "Quiet Edition" fans based on that video. The CorsairMemoreyInc channel also has good video reviews.
Each fan comes with: three color rings in red, white, and blue (these are very easy to swap without tools); a voltage step-down adapter; and four fan screws.
The voltage step-down adapter (which looks like a short extension cable) reduces voltage to the fan from 12 VDC to 7 VDC. This voltage reduction lowers fan speed and air flow, resulting in further noise reduction. If your system can be adequately cooled with the fan operating at 7 VDC, you might want to install the step-down adapter to achieve even lower noise levels. Be sure to monitor your temperatures with the CPU and video card at maximum use.
The only thing I do not like about these fans is that the provided fan screws are not wide enough: the screw heads can slip through the screw holes in the Corsair Vengeance C70 case. I secured most of the fans with screws that were used with the original "stock" fans.
I recently built a new desktop-style computer using the Corsair C70 case and the Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler (CWCH100). The C70 case comes with three stock fans; the H100 CPU cooler comes with two stock fans for the radiator. Although the Corsair "stock" fans are very good, I decided to replace the three case fans and the two H100 fans with "Quiet Edition" fans.
In my Corsair Vengeance C70 case, I:
- removed the front center drive bay (to reduce air flow obstruction) and replaced the stock fan with an AF140 "Quiet Edition" fan mounted outside of the case as a supply fan (these changes maximize air flow to the video card),
- installed an AF140 "Quiet Edition" fan in the side panel as a supply fan,
- replaced the stock fan at the exhaust with an AF120 "Quiet Edition" fan,
- replaced the remaining drive bay's stock fan with an SP120 "Quiet Edition" fan as a supply fan, and
- replaced the two stock fans on the H100 CPU cooler with two SP120 "Quiet Edition" fans as exhaust fans.
As advertised, these "Quiet Edition" fans are very, very quiet in operation, and they are keeping the CPU, motherboard, and case temperatures very low. I disconnected the AF140 fan in the side panel because it is not needed.
If you are on a budget, you might want to keep the stock fans that come with your case and CPU cooler. Those fans are somewhat noisier; but they have really great performance curves. I just wanted to experiment with the "Quiet Edition" fans; I am glad I used them for this build. I really appreciate the lower noise levels and the air flows are more than adequate (CPU and case temperatures are low). I highly recommend these fans.
I attached a photo of the screw hole and the devastating aftermath when the rubber twists.
3 stars. Would be 5 stars if not for the shotty screw holes.
Glad to say that I've heard no rattling noises, even at max RPM.
At low speeds they're nearly silent. I keep them, as well as two AF120 fans, running nearly all the time at low speeds. Due to my thicccc rads, I only hear them ramp up when running Prime95 and FurMark at the same time.
Although I'm sure I may be able to hear them over the "roar" of my PS4 and the compressor of my mini fridge.

They came with an 1 inch extension cable which was definitely necessary for me to reach the motherboard system fan header. The cables on these things were short and i could not reach my mATX motherboard headers without just passing them through the middle of the case. So be careful, you may need an extension cable of sorts.
Overall I like these alot and would recommend them.
