can you use the EK-Vardar EVO 120ER D-RGB as intake fans?

I know they are radiator fans but i really like the look of them would they perform good as intake fans?

(also i was really not sure where to post this so mods move if its not for here)

Did you like not read the post at all?

I like the looks, Noctua fans are very good but I'll take anything over that brown and the build is going to be white so black edition is also not an option.

You can use any fan as an intake or radiator fan if it's physically compatible. The question is how efficient it is. A pressure optimized fan does better on a radiator, and an airflow fan does better as an intake. But yes they are fine

Not exactly...

 

Radiator / High Static pressure fans are good for places with obstruction.

So they are good for radiators, heatsinks, or in the front of a computer case if there are dust filters, HDD cages, or parts of the chassis itself in the way.

 

Airflow designed fans work best with minimal obstruction / restriction.

That can be rear exhaust, inside the case, front intake or top exhaust -- IF there is minimal obstruction.

 

For an example:

The Phanteks P400A has an open front panel -- you can use either static pressure OR airflow fans there.

Compare that something like a Corsair 275R Airflow, you'd probably want high static pressure fans.

That's okay...expected...different time zones. :)

 

The Lian-Li O11 Dynamic can either use airflow or static pressure fans there...if you are talking about the side intake.

Though, since the air needs to do a 90-degree turn before reaching the components, I'd go with static pressure fans (e.g EKwb Varder fans).

 

Are you going to be air cooling, or water cooling?

The O11 Dynamic, like the O11 Air, and PC-O11, has a strict CPU (air) cooler restriction.

O11 Dynamic is limited to under 155mm height high air coolers....so even something like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black (158mm) WON'T fit in there.

Air cooler choices are limited, as the CHASSIS / FRAME is geared towards water cooling.

High-end, beefy coolers, like...these won't fit:

  • BeQuiet! Dark Rock / Pro 4
  • Noctua NH-D15
  • Noctua NH-U14S
  • Noctua NH-U12A / U12S 
  • Phanteks PH-TC14PE
  • Phanteks TC12DX
  • etc...

So be careful when picking out a cooler if you plan to go with air cooling.

 

AIO, or custom loop is not a problem.

Ah okay...

 

Mmm...better to do this:

  • Side fans / radiator (if you ever plan to do that) -- intake
  • Top fans / radiator -- exhaust
  • Bottom fans / radiator (if you plan to do that) -- intake
  • Rear fan -- exhaust

Putting the top fans as intake, you are FIGHTING against natural hot convection flow.

Naturally, hot air rises.

 

You are pulling air from the top, forcing the air DOWN into the case, into the rest of the system.

This can potentially heat up your motherboard, RAM, Graphics Card by a few degrees, by the way...

While air pressure is pushing the hot air down, the side fans need to suck the hot air out of the system.

Hot air exhausts from the side fans, once it exits the case, it will rise up.

Then some of the warmed air can potentially sucked BACK into the system by the top fans.

Are you using an AIO, or a custom loop?

I assumed you are doing a custom water loop, so radiator placement vs pump placement wouldn't matter.

My bad...

 

Anyways, try both set-ups...Radiator as exhaust / front as intake  VS radiator as intake / front as exhaust...see which one gives you better temperatures / noise.

Are you using an AIO, or a custom loop?

I assumed you are doing a custom water loop, so radiator placement vs pump placement wouldn't matter.

My bad...

 

Anyways, try both set-ups...Radiator as exhaust / front as intake  VS radiator as intake / front as exhaust...see which one gives you better temperatures / noise.

Yea ill do it
