Sorry to bother everyone again with a question:
Will an EK DDC with XTop and Cover kit be able to push water through two 240s, a 120, a 980 Ti block and a Supremacy EVO?

Without breaking a sweat. thumb.gif

You should do that first, PWM fans can act up when voltage controlled.

When I set them to be controlled via RPM, I get VERY annoying creaking/coil whine coming from them.

Is it normal? Im 100% sure its coming from the fans. I will connect them to mobo headers and check if it happens there too.

I had the same problem with my vardar f2-140s, but one of them was just unbearably loud. I returned them and am just using voltage controlled fans now. Here's a video, the 4th fan is the worst (sorry about the bad iphone recording).

Why are you not controlling them via PWM (do you have non-PWM Varders or something strange like that?) . . . wouldn't that be the place to start troubleshooting?

I might not have been clear. I was and am controlling them with PWM option in Aquaero. I even set that up before connecting fans. But when I first booted the PC and lowered their RPM, I heard that creak/coil whine, and it doesnt go away.
Now they are at 500RPM and its quite loud.

I switched to voltage control to see whether it would fix this or not.. and the noise was gone. Right now Im sitting with PWM mode and the coil whine is driving me nuts.
Whats weird - it happens on all 5 fans. There are two pairs hooked with Y splitter and one single, total of 3 fan channels.

I've got to say I love these Vardar fans. I've been going through so many fans over the years with constant problems. Clicking, grinding, pwm problems, and even blades flying off.. I get none of that with the Vardar. They are very quality no matter how you position them. smile.gif

I even run them below their cyclic rate and no problems.thumb.gif
