Anybody own a vardar 3000rpm

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I have a system that gets pretty hot (currently on air)
I was thinking that i could get the 3000rpm pwm fans and when im doing anything super intensive the fans would be at a lower rpm.


Looking for input from owners if the 3000s are still loud at lower rpms
post #2 of 25
Is it all the components that get hot or only specific ones ? What do you mean by 'hot' ?
What (size and model) and how many fans are you currently using in your system ? What RPM are they running at and have you tried to increase their speed ? (if yes at what RPM did you find them too noisy?) By 'air' do you mean strict air-cooling or also aio ?
Could you maybe upload a photo of your current setup while indicating the airflow configuration you set up (which fans are intake, exhaust...etc).
What do you mean by 'lower rpms' ?
Not a vardar owner sorry, but I think i can say they are decent fans but their dba/cfm numbers are only indicative. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show) So unless they're gonna run over 1100+ RPMs there may be better solutions.

Well I'm on air right now as in cpu cooler and exhaust fans. System consist of a 5930k at stock and s 980ti.

Both run hot when gaming (80c+/60c+ on low settings in game)

Currently I have 3 of these as exhaust http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/case-fan/jetflo-120/
They're pwm so they turn all the way up its hot and the noise isn't unbearable.


By lower rpm I mean like around 1500rpm

Have you considered Gentle Typhoons?

Their cooling to noise ratio is suberb.

EDIT: didn't see you're using them as casefans. GT's are better for rads.

For casefans, look into the Pantheks PH-F140MP indeed. Great fans. The casemod I'm working on, relies on just 2 in the front and should be more than sufficient, even at low rpm.

Im looking for rad fans lol. My case was made for watercooling, its kinda a heat trap for air cooling.


I see the GTs have a lower rpm. Are they gonna do the same at 2150rpm that the vardar would do at 3000?

Also my case has a really tight space for the rad/fans. Ive alrdy picked a rad, but it only fits if the fans are no thicker than 25mm
Is true Gts are a little thicker?

Why on earth do you need 3000RPM vardars ? Pick the 1450rpm ones and enjoy silence

Well 2 reasons.
1) my case
2) im cooling a 5930k/980ti with a single 360 rad and no intake fans (hint reason 1, case uses passive intake instead of fans)

This guy has a finnished build with the same case
http://ggflan.com/lian-li-pc-o7s/

But yes id love to run the vardars at something like 1450 when browsi ng and be able to have it go near max/3000 when gaming or rendering

I would just get a better case rather then having to use a noisy computer, but hey that`s just me.
post #9 of 25
Nonono imo you won't find any bearable fan at 2500+ rpm if you already find the ones you have noisy at 2000.
Is your mobo able to control all fans ?
We should first see if we can improve your current setup then we'll hopefully find fans that suit your needs.
Pls poste a paint commented pic of your case atm (with direction of fans airflow and maybe speeds including cpu cooler.

Others have pointed most things out:

First, your case is NOT suited for high-TDP hardware, even with water cooling. This might work when you're using a blower-style GPU or if you split loops (120mm for the GPU & 240mm for the CPU) but don't take my word for it. GPU's are easier to pull heat from and GPU loops tend to be delta 20°, while CPU is preferred under delta 10°

A 5930K + 980 Ti on a single 360mm rad is very tight. You'll need a rad optimised for high-RPM fans, paided with 2K RPM+ radiator-suited fans, preferable in push/pull config.

You have some options:
  • Swap the fans for high-RPM fans (although I doubt this will change a lot and will result in noise, a lot of it)
  • Ditch the case for something that's actually suited for high TDP hardware.
  • Use an extra external rad (Dual 360 for example)
  • Remove the sidepanel
  • Mod the case to allow for more airflow and a push-pull config (I don't think it fits without modding?)
  • Split loops (although this won't improve the results too much)
  • Lower overclocks

As for fans:
Everything above 2K get's loud, unless it uses a special blade design (like the GTs for example, and even those get audible above 2K). The 3K vardar will get loud.

EK lists the 2200 RPM at 33.5 dBA and the 3000 RPM at 42 dBA. These ratings are bullcrap, but to give you an idea: dBA scale is logaritmic. Every 3 dBA doubles the "perceived sound level".

This is de vardar at 2200 RPM.

Some other things to note: When you're going exhaust-heat with the rad, you'll suck dust in the case. When you're going intake rad, you'll heat up the hardware in your case A LOT (Hard drives, SSD, motherboard, ... will all heat up easily above 50°

^Just my thoughts
