The tech specs page shows a different current draw for each fan. Is this a typo or is there another reason for the difference?

0.225 A for ML 120 Pro:

I was told that the cable lengths are also different. Is that true?

And thanks for the review @Stalefish. Rep++. Will be ordering a pair when it comes into stock.

That's actually correct, there's some slight differences in amperage between 3 ML120 variants;

ML Non-pro - 0.219
ML Pro - 0.225
ML Pro LED - 0.299

I just checked them, they are actually the same length - they're around 2ft.

Thermalbench did a good test and review. Cyclops did one in his fan thread here on forum. Both liked them.

The reason I'm a 'wait and see' kinda guy on these is because the are using a new electro-magnetic bearing design and I want to see how it does for at least a few months before I venture into them. They may be just great, but that remains to be seen, and as often as not new releases of technology run into unforeseen problems.

This.

I'm waiting as well to see, especially for the first batch. It is good to see more competition on the market, but I want to see if there are any issues with the first batch. EK for example had some problems with its first Vardar fans.




I'd also like to see a review from Dazmode on these fans.



It is interesting that Dazmode when he tested had different results than VSG tests. Of course, it is different testing methodologies, which can easily explain that - Dazmode is looking at temperature and noise at a given rpm. In the Dazmode tests, the Gentle Typhoon prevailed over the Vardar, the Noctua, and the other fans.

ML 120, GTs and Vardars all perform very close to each other.
I suspect margin of error is more than enough to account for differences.
Could you link to this test please?
I think we shold to keep in mind that Dazmode has a vested interest in Gentle Typhoon fans. To buy GTs he has to meet Nidec Servo's minimum order requirements before they will make them, and that is very large number / expensive investment. Because of that and how closely the Vardar and GT perform it is not unreasonable to think he might be a little biased toward GTs tongue.gif

I can understand the 0.074a difference between ML Pro and ML Pro LED because of LED load.
What is the 0.006a difference between ML Pro and ML Non-pro? What creates this difference?

I just ordered two ML120 fans. Gonna throw out all those crappy 120mm/200mm fans that my Zalman H1 came with and leave only those ML120s. One will be bottom intake, the other one rear exhaust. My system: single 1080 FE with i7 4790K cooled by D15S. I figured since I'm running a reference card I don't need a crapload of fans, just two good ones with good static pressure, since my case in full tower and stock 120mm/200m fans are just too weak to supply air to the GPU. Am I right doyll ?
