Well then. After taxes and shipping to US, we're looking at around $47. Pretty good deal right there.

Is it just that other fan specs are exaggerated or is there seemingly no benefit at all to these fans being thicker? 2.75 mm H20, 62 CFM @ 1800 rpm is like middle of the pack for 120mm fans.... and at 44 dBa makes it much louder than most of the other fans in its spec range.

I know that these fans are based on the vardar fans, and those were birthed from the legendary typhoon fans which had fantastic real-world performance, but I'm just curious as to why the specs on fans don't necessarily represent the real-world performance.

I've given some thought on this fan, and it just makes me squint my eyes and tilt my head to the side. It has more deadzone, more noise, very similar airflow/static pressure specs compared to the vardar f3 120 while costing nearly $50 after shipping. Because the motor is larger, motor noise increases as well as ball bearing noise and vibrations. DBBs on 38mm thick fans aren't quiet either. That growl goes straight to your cochlea.

the massive fan hub basically ruined its potential, it could've gained far more airflow with minimal loss in pressure if the hub was smaller.
the only way this fan can outperform all other fans is when its used in super-high fin density radiators.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

Just buy a Nidec fan or other. They make these 38mm, etc. thicker fans with plenty performance.

I'd expect better cfm and static pressure from 38mm fans almost $40 each. I've seen similar and better specs in fans half the price.
