Thumbs down Corsair SP 120 - To short of wires

Starting my build today. Had purchased the SP120's as intake fans behind the HDD cages in my Corsair 550d case.

WELL The wires on SO short on these fans they don't even reach mobo if I go through HDD cage. Forget about using the wiring ports.

I expected way more for 35$ for 2 fans.

LOL seriously?

Cable length for fans I find is generally the same size from fan to fan. Most people are either using fan extensions or a fan controller of some form.

$35 for 2 fans is pretty cheap to be honest.

I agree with you.. I've bought 8 pcs of the SP120.. i might just buy an extra fan extensions if it won't reach my PWM cable splitter..

No kidding...I've got tons n tons of splitters and extensions kicking around..its part of the planning in your build, never "assume" the Fan Connectors will reach where you want them to go...personally I'm glad they keep them short vs long, let me customize the length instead of bundling all that extra cabling into a zip tie

And that is cheap, considering the Noctua NF Series and Alpha Cool E Loops are around $30 each

Alpha Cool/Phoyba eloops are closer to $20, no? It's the original's from Noiseblocker that are $30ish.
