Even though we were perplexed that they did not manage to repeat their results, they performed excellently with 83°C on the CPU. After letting Heavyload grill the CPU, we came to the following results while the Fans were spinning at 100% PWM. At a first glance, the Arctic P12 Lineup may be overwhelming, but we will try to make it as clear as possible. Arctic's Lineup of 120mm Case Fans is grouped into 2 big Product Lines, the P12 Series & the F12 Series.Additionally, they did manage to keep the noise level pretty low, and even be "un-noticeable" in the lower 50%s of their PWM Speed.

While we installed the P12's we did notice a small thing that could have been better thought through. Even though the PST (Daisy-Chain) system was very useful while mounting them, the attached extra wire was way too short. While the F12 Series is Airflow optimized, it spins way slower (1350 RPM) and produces way less air pressure, but can push a lot of air for such a slow-spinning fan. After Unboxing the Fans, we immediately noticed that there were no "Anti-Vibration" Pads to be found.The Rest of this review focuses only on the P12 PWM PST fan, but you can expect the exact same results from the P12 PWM (as the only difference is the Daisy Chain). By doing so, we can use the CPU Temperature as an accurate measurement as the CPU temp now only relies on the Air that the Case Fans are pushing into the Case.
