EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce the latest addition to the company's first fully in-house engineered computer cooling fan family, the EK-Vardar. These new fans are available in either All Black or All White design and feature Extended Range (ER) of operation!

  EK releases new Extended Range series EK-Vardar fans  

 

 

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.

The key characteristics of EK-Vardar Fx-120 series 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 operating 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.

 

The newest addition to the Vardar family is the EK-Vardar F4-120ER with ER standing for Extended Range. The PWM duty cycle in this model extends to a range between 25% and 100%. Both models (All Black and All White) come with four self-tapping screws and are pre-sleeved (color matched) for your convenience.

"The Vardars are one of the best fans overall here, and the story continues with the F4-120ER", writes VSG, reviewer of

Thermalbench. "At this point of time, this is my #1 recommendation for people wanting PWM radiator fans."

 

The new fans are readily available for purchase through EK Webshop and Partner Reseller Network. For customized and OEM parts please inquire for quotation.

I love the look of the fans. I just wish they were a bit more geared towards airflow. I do understand that EK is a water cooling company though, so static pressure is also fairly important Quote

Might get me some even just for a case fan.. they throw air in a directed path so it's still worth getting solely for moving airQuote

Isn't that a bit of bs though?... as I've heard many in here saying that "directed airflow" is more of a gimmick than anything else (not my words).Quote

Not really. Air is air. Throw as much into a case or throw little less into a case in a more directed path to get the cooler air to the fans quicker. Works pretty well. Many Static Pressure fans use a more directed airflow design because it produces more SP and gets the air threw the rads/heatsinks quicker. Silverstone AP121's are a great example of this. Old Gentle Typhoons as well, which I might add the Vardar fans are pretty much identical too as well as other fans released as of late.Quote
