The EK-Vardar EVO 120ER D-RGB is a high-static pressure computer cooling fan, designed and built primarily for highest-performance computer liquid cooling systems. Developed in-house and first introduced in 2014, the EK-Vardar fan is now also available as EK-Vardar EVO 120ER D-RGB. Besides the addressable D-RGB lighting that can be daisy-chained, the new fan also packs the Extended Range (ER) of the PWM operation feature and the special Start-Stop function which brings a true 0dB experience for the absolute silent fan operation. EK-Vardar EVO 120ER D-RGB is simply the best choice of addressable RGB fan for computer radiator cooling as it provides unmatched performance throughout the entire operating range.
The perfectly balanced milky coloured 7-blade impeller design is optimized for light dispersion and high-pressure operation while maintaining the low noise profile throughout the whole operation range of the fan. Under the motor hub, there is a total of 9 LEDs making this one of the brightest D-RGB fans on the market, ensuring perfect light diffusion at broad daylight as well.
One of the key features of the EK-Vardar D-RGB fans is their simplicity as it uses standard 3-pin 5V D-RGB connectivity. Meaning it can be used with any standard 3-pin 5V addressable D-RGB controller or any of the popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers. This connector cable has a splitter to daisy chain the next Vardar D-RGB fan to it. The arrow marking on the 3-pin LED connector is to be aligned with the +5V marking on the D-RGB (ARGB) header. Also, the sleek black flat ribbon cable will not make any clutter and is easily concealed for the best cable management experience.
The Vardar family of cooling fans carries the notorious name of a type of 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.
