EK-Vardar X3M 120ER D-RGB Black Cooling Fan
The EK-Vardar X3M 120ER D-RGB is a high-static pressure computer cooling fan with added aesthetical interchangeable rubber dampers. Developed in-house and first introduced in 2014, the EK-Vardar fan is now also available as the X3M 120ER model with addressable D-RGB LEDs and optional daisy-chaining feature. The rubber details on the corners of the fan are also there to reduce vibration and noise. These rubber dampers come pre-installed for use in push orientation but can be removed and mounted the other way around, for a pull flow orientation. To further make the sound profile more pleasant, airflow optimizations were made to the rotor as well. Under the motor hub, there is a total of 9 addressable D-RGB LEDs ensuring perfect light diffusion at broad daylight as well.
As with the previous Vardar fans, the X3M lineup 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 noiseless environment. The perfectly balanced 7 fan blade design is optimized for high-static pressure operation while maintaining the low noise profile throughout the whole operation range of the fan.
The X3M fans are set to push mode out of the box, but the dampers can be easily detached by using a 3mm Allen key and flipped, thus setting the fan in a pull setup. Supplied with the fan are also four UNC 6-32 10mm long screws which are used to attach the fans to radiators if desired. Additional four thumb nut screws are also delivered which are used to mount the X3M fans into PC cases.
(EK-Vardar X3M rubber dampers can be purchased separately in various color options to match your build)
The perfectly balanced 7 fan blade design is optimized for light dispersion and high-pressure operation while maintaining the low noise profile throughout the whole operation range of the fan. This addressable D-RGB version uses a milky white rotor that does a great job of diffusing the light and provides great dispersion of all 9 LEDs located in the fan motor hub.
The addressable D-RGB LEDs use standard 3-pin 5V D-RGB connectors with optional daisy-chaining. Meaning it can be used with any standard 3-pin 5V D-RGB controller or any of popular RGB sync technologies from all major motherboard manufacturers.
• High-static pressure / low noise profile: Unlike other general-purpose computer cooling fans, the EK-Vardar X3M 120ER fan is built for high-powered PC systems. The Vardar’s design is also suitable for restrictive cases with dust filters.
• High-quality motor and bearing assembly: New electrical design, actively cooled motor windings and the Dual-Ball bearing with 50.000 hours of lifespan (MTBF) ensures uninterrupted operation for years to come. Precise Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) for fan speed adjustment allows performance on demand.
• Standard D-RGB connection: The Vardar X3M 120ER D-RGB features a standard 3-pin 5V D-RGB connection that is compatible with any popular RGB sync technology from major motherboard manufacturers.
• 0db regime: The Vardar X3M 120ER has a 0db mode where the fan turns off when the PWM curve is set below 25%.
• Colored Dampers: Interchangeable rubber dampers in multiple color options to boost aesthetics and to reduce vibration transfer.

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.

Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets.

Anybody who has been near their share of computer systems will appreciate that not all systems make the same amount of noise. There are a number of reasons for why this is so. Firstly, a computer makes noise for different reasons. Generally, anything mechanical is going to make noise.
