Ahh, the (in)famous APH TP air flow test.

For those that don't get it: The TP test gives a Visual reference not just numbers.

Yeah that white on white with the detail, had to be tricky... or not with a decent camera.

Nope, we only ever got the Air Penetrator SST-AP121-L which I enjoyed using quite a bit.

Yeah, I think this is our first time with 180mm fans. I think it is nice to see some good performance aftermarket solutions for stuff larger than 120mm. SilverStone Air Penetrators are among the best, along with Noctua's product line.

Agreed, personally loved SilverStone's AP series of fans. Won me over pretty quickly, especially with the price to performance ratio.

It'll be arriving shortly. If you know where to look, you'll notice that a majority of it is already complete.
