Corsair claims the SP120L fans differ from standard case fans with a custom design intended to provide high static pressure for mounting directly against radiators. The fan blades of the SP120L fans have been custom shaped to allow maximum air delivery with minimal noise.

Because of the extra thick radiator and dual fans supplied, the final radiator assembly may not fit in all cases. The picture below shows how tight the push-pull configuration assembly is in a typical PC case.

Fortunately it would be very easy to simply connect a single fan to the radiator for a smaller profile assembly in situations where there is not sufficient space to install the full assembly.

Power for the fans is supplied by connectors on the pump assembly to allow the Corsair Link software to adjust the fan speed.

After the hardware has been installed and the Corsair link cable connected to an available USB 2.0 connector, the Corsair Link software can be installed. No disk is included with the Corsair package as it is assumed that the latest version of the program will be downloaded from the website.

Once installed, the Corsair Link is available with a right-click on the hidden icons selector on the Windows toolbar.
