Can this static pressure rating be correct?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'll soon be looking for some 120mm radiator fans and with high static pressure being a key factor I was looking at the NF-F12's from Noctua (2.61 mm/H2O) and the Corsair SP120's (High performance version - 3.1 mm/H20).

However yesterday OCUK introduced "their own" range of fans which are Zaward ZG3-120D's with a sticker on. The specs are -

Dimension - 120 x 120 x 25mm
Fan Speed - 2000±200rpm
Bearing Type - Duro bearing
Max.Air Flow - 52.85 CFM
Noise Level - 30.9 dBA
Static Pressure - 3.48mmH20
Operation Voltage - 12V
Life Expectancy - 60,000 Hrs
Net Weight - 125g

That static pressure rating seems extremely high to me and I've asked them to double check it.

Does anyone on here have any experience of these Zaward fans? Is that specification correct?

Could be OK. Delta AFB1212HE 120x38mm will do over 9mm H2O.

Don't trust most fan specs, they are usually inflated.

You can usally trust fan specs of fans made to work in industry e.g. san ace, delta.

There's no regulatory compliance on fan specs. wink.gif
