Product information: EK-Vardar F2-120 (1450rpm)

EK-Vardar is the industrial grade high-static pressure computer cooling fan, designed and built primarily for highest-performance computer liquid cooling systems. This product is the result of one year worth of development, CFD analysis, careful motor selection and anechoic chamber testing.

Dubbed Vardar, this family of cooling fans carry the name of a type of the cold northwesterly wind blowing from the mountains down to the valleys of Macedonia. It is a type of ravine wind, enhanced by a channelling effect while blowing down through the Moravia-Vardar gap, bringing cold conditions from the north to the Thessaloniki area of Greece. Most frequent during winter, it is blowing in the rear of a depression when atmospheric pressure over eastern Europe is higher than over the Aegean Sea.

EK-Vardar is simply the best choice for computer radiator cooling as it provides unmatched performance throughout entire operating range.

The key characteristics of EK-Vardar fans are:

High-static pressure / low noise profile - unlike other general-purpose computer cooling fans, the EK-Vardar family of fans is built specifically for computer liquid cooling systems, namely radiator cooling. The 7-fin fan blade design is optimized for high pressure operation while maintaining the low noise profile throughout the whole operation range of the fan. Vardar's design and construction is also very suitable for high-performance heat-pipe air coolers.

High-quality motor and bearing assembly - Proven electrical design, actively cooled motor windings and Double Ball bearing with 50.000 hours lifespan (MTBF) ensures uninterrupted operation for years to come. Phase-width modulation (PWM) fan speed allows performance on demand.

Sealed-edge fan casing - The classic, yet effective square shape of the fan casing ensures optimal performance in either pull- (suction) or push (pressure) regime without hydraulic losses thus ensuring optimal cooling capacity of your liquid cooling radiators.

Timeless design - the EK-Vardar fan fits subtly into any liquid cooling computer without drawing too much attention. Single- and two-tone colour design with monochrome fan sticker. Less is more.

Quietest Case Fans not for Watercooling

Got Two of These on my Corsair H100I GTX as the fans, I first bought to replace the Stock Fans (XSPC) were too loud so I was looking for a quieter Alternative then I spotted the EK-Vardar F2s and from the Tech Specs and price it was a sure thing as I was looking at buying Corsairs own SP120 Fans but the F2s cost less and performed very close to them.

Overall, they are really quiet I can only hear it when I put My ear next to them, however the speed of the F2 are too slow for me and I may go to the F3 as the Cooling performance of them is less than what I needed as before my XSPC fans, I bought to not use the stock fans were way too loud, but they provided the cooling I needed and kept my 8350 OC'ed 4.4GHz within 50c while playing Grand theft Auto 5 whereas the F2s was going over the 55c because of this they are now my Front Case fans for my Corsair 750D and the do a great job at that average Motherboard temperatures down by 3-5c.

Build Quality

Low Air Flow

Overall the F2s are great for Case Fans but not for Radiators may be Ok for a 120mm but from my experience it's not good enough for a H100i GTX.
