Those pressure ratings are directly related to fan rpmWhen it comes to rad performance, static pressure is king! You could try Delta fans, they are used in Servers and should be cheaper than any fans sold by companies that sell gamer branded items. They have a lot of different ones and they should all be better quality than a lot of the gamer marketed ones. I am considering the HD-120 by corsair strictly for aesthetic reasons (digital RGB), it has a pressure rating of 2.25mmH20 . I found some arrays of Delta in the e-waste bin at work, all are 120mm. One set had an impressive ~4mmH20 pressure rating, the other set had a draw dropping 10mmH20. Crazy higher pressures can come at a cost of being louder. I haven't tested the 10mmh20, though the 4mmH20 didn't put out that much sound as I was thinking. The Delta fans are going to be very reliable, the fact they are intended to work 24/7 for years as well as not being easily changed means they need something reliable in data center. Most decent kits will come with a fan that has a static of ~1.8 or higher.
Fan: mmH20 - dBA
Corsair HD120: 2.25 - 30
Delta WFB1212H: 4.8 - 37.6
Delta FFB1212SH: 10.64 - 54
There are way to many options, it all comes down to cost, performance, loudness, and looks. Depending on what you want, that can vary. I am not sure of what I want to do, still spending to much time researching.
it can make a difference - Maybe you could post how you came to that conclusion with fact rather than just your constant pointless argumentative bashing of asetek based aio's.Could you be more specific with "AIO"? Are we talking about a reasonably efficient piece like a Swiftech H-320 X2 or EK where a fan like this would make a difference? Or are we talking about some Asetek CLC where it really doesn't matter?
This got me thinking. As I am perfectionist at times, I have a good amount of data compiled to compare fans as I was looking for RGB and some Non-RGB fans for my system. These are based of Manufacture's ratings and I scaled the RPM by diving it by 1000 to make it easier to compare. This also doesn't account for the ~10% margin of error. The graph is sorted by RPM.Those pressure ratings are directly related to fan rpm
HD120 = 1725rpm
WFB1212H = 2470rpm
FFB1212SH = 3700rpm
My guess is if FFB1212SH nd WFB1212H are slowed down to 1725rpm their pressure rating is similar to HD120
thanks, yes those are the ones im referring to, white and black versions. I ended up getting the white ones. crossing fingers hopefully they dont go bad like the old versions i keep hearing about.To the op's
Are you referring to these fans https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-vardar-evo-120er-white .very expensive and it's the only Fan to have 0DB, or totally stop, but I think many current MB can also do this even if the Fan does not support total stop. Haven't used other types of Fans.
I have two in my setup, and those are the only Fans I have, one is use for a case Fan and is connected and reacts to my chipset, its runs avarage 1300RPM and is set on PWM, set to spin when the temp reaches 35c.
Second Fan is used on my Radiator and it's only spins around 600-800rpm when spinning, using the MB software this fan will start to spin if my CPU temp reaches 30c, the highest temp on my system is 37c for CPU and 55c for chipset.
My system is a GA-AB350N-Gaming WIFI m-ITX, samsung M.2 950 pro 512GB, two 4 GB HDD, cooling is a DC LT ceramic pump using a plexitop, raystorm pro cpu block, silverstone SX700PLT power supply, alphacool radiator and two EK Fan, although the Fan are PWM enabled in my setup, they have not reached full speed at 2200RPM yet.
Hope this helps.
I have a Fractal Celsius S36Could you be more specific with "AIO"? Are we talking about a reasonably efficient piece like a Swiftech H-320 X2 or EK where a fan like this would make a difference? Or are we talking about some Asetek CLC where it really doesn't matter?
Anyone smarter than a stick doesn't pay much attention to the person who makes lots of claims about how fast their car is. They want to see the quarter mile time sheet data that shows how fast the car is.Hmmm.....gee.....one would think if they actually did something worth reporting, they would.
There are too few AIOs that are not CLC to worry about it. Alphacool and Swiftech OEM are the only AIOs not CLCs that I know of. Alphacool make their Eisbaer, be quiet! Silent Loop and Fractal Design Kelvin while Swiftech only make their own cooler. All have models with 280mm and 360mm radiators.I wish more would make 420mm AIO water-cooler already. the only one i found is by Alphacool i think.
I'm using the N case, so I'm limited on space, i'm using a single 120mm radiator and set the radiator fan in pull, the case fan is set to pull also dragging air from the base into the case.thanks, yes those are the ones im referring to, white and black versions. I ended up getting the white ones. crossing fingers hopefully they dont go bad like the old versions i keep hearing about.
I have 6 of them in push/pull on a Fractal Celsius S36. Case is Thermaltake P3 White version.
