The new EK-Vardar EVO 140ER D-RGB does not only come with advanced addressable lighting diodes but uses Extended Range (ER) of the PWM operation with Start-Stop function, which allows it to be a true 0dB fan. This does not only allow users to have a completely silent operation but should also prevent unneeded radiator dust buildup and extend the lifespan of the fan itself.
Specification-wise, the EK-Vardar EVO 140ER D-RGB is a 140mm fan with addressable diodes with D-RGB connection that supports most, if not all D-RGB sync technology from major motherboard manufacturers. It has a high-static pressure/low noise profile, making it specifically suitable for liquid cooling systems, namely radiators, as well as high-performance air coolers or as case fans for restrictive cases with dust filters.
It uses a dual-ball bearing fan with 12V rated voltage, spinning between 400rpm to 1600rpm, and providing up to 84CFM (143m³/h) of airflow with 18.6Pa (1.90mm H2O) static pressure and maximum noise level of 31.6dBA.
The special 0dB regime, as a part of the Extended Range (ER) of the PWM operation with Start-Stop function, ensures that when the fan curve is set with the minimum threshold point below 25-30% PWM duty cycle (depending on the motherboard), the fan stops spinning. It also automatically restarts when it ramps up past the threshold start-stop point.
The EK-Vardar EVO 140ER D-RGB has bearing durability of 50.000 hours, comes with 50cm cable and RGB cable length, and features a total of 9 LEDs, making it one of the brightest D-RGB fans on the market.
The EK-Vardar EVO 140ER D-RGB is currently available directly from EKWB and its partners with a price set at €25,90.
