Converting mmAq and mm-H2O

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, looking at a few fans for my h50, and trying to compare the static pressure ratings of each

one is 2.66 mmAq and the other is 1.23 mm-H20


is there a way to convert one to the other so i can see which has better flow?

i checked online and cant find specific conversions for these 2 units

thanks

Aq is an abbreviation for "Aqua" so it's the same thing as mmH2o. Took me a few minutes to figure that out since I didn't see it in any online conversion tools, either; only some engineering website actually detailed that.

So 2 mmAq = 2 mmH2O corect?
If so am diching the Noctua fans and going to order Gelid instead.

Please don't believe what manufacturers public as the specifications of their fans. Most are lies.

Look at a good review where they put them on a cooler and compare how well they cool and how much noise they make.
