Utilizing my newest toy, a Long Win LW-9266 Fan PQ performance measurement apparatus, I look at Seasonic’s high-end MagFlow fan which promises high performance featuring a daisy chain design which makes a breeze the installation of multiple fans.

Fan testing is tough if you don’t have the proper equipment, which is specialized and super-expensive. After years of struggle, I managed to get my hands on a Long Win LW-9266 Fan PQ Performance Measurement Apparatus. Along with the rest of my equipment, a hemi-anechoic chamber with below 6 dBA noise floor and a top-notch sound analyzer and mic, fan testing will be a pleasant experience for you and me!
The Seasonic MagFlow 120mm starts from €29 and goes up to €83 for a 3-pack bundle. This is not an affordable fan, with a similar price to the Phanteks T30-120, which I will evaluate in a future review. Besides high build quality and the fluid dynamic bearing, the 120mm MagFlow features a magnetic connection system that allows the easy connection of multiple fans without the need for cabling.
The power cable attaches to the fan magnetically, so it is safe to say that these fans are fully modular. Thanks to a pretty strong magnet, the connectors easily snap in place.
