    It may be a lightweight, compared to the monster coolers that have been popping up, but it sure performs like a champion! Like a thoroughbred horse, the Thermalright SI-120 CPU cooler certainly shows its distinguished lineage. Find out why we love this cooler so much!

    Sorry to say, but this is definitely wrong for Papst Fans. All of them fit the Thermalright perfectly fine.

    I have the SI-120 since March of this year and use a Papst F2GLL 120mm fan (1200 rpm -> extremely silent and still more efficient than any solution I have ever had before). For users with more demanding setups the F2GL with 1600rpm might be the better solution.

    Maybe you should correct that in the review.

    Just as a bit of a follow-up...indeed I was mistaken about the Papst fans, my apologies.
    Here's an article by Madshrimps comparing several 120mm fans:
    The ones identified in the article as having the Thermalright-incompatible "rib type" construction include fans from GlobalWin, mCubed, as well as Yate Loon/Nexus.
