Not static pressure fans?

I was recently told that these fans were not static pressure and that they were just regular airflow fans. The website clearly says it has static pressure for each speed mode. So are they static pressure fans because I thought they're one of those hybrid fans at least.

Also, I've watched JayzTwoCents' video on air flow vs air pressure fans and he said that hybrid fans were best for a custom water cooling loop that would have restrictions in front of the fans. I was wondering what are a few examples of those kinds of fans. Are these hybrid?

But if anyone has any recommendations on some good static pressure (or even hybrid) fans please let me know. Thanks.

These fans can also be used for an AIO.

Keep in mind, the higher the static pressure in regard to the airflow the better for an AIO.

All fans will produce static pressure, some more than others... Usually some are optimized for airflow or static pressure. Enermax fans are decent fans. The twister storm at max speed 3500 will produce 11.125 which is a lot but at 3500 rpms its going to be extremely loud. Even at 1500 rpms it produces decent SP 2.512. And at 1500 rpms its not going to be that loud.

If a fan is in a restricted area or is used for a heatsink, AIO or custom loop then you need fans with good static pressure.

The EK Vardar evo, I would say is optimized for SP as this are meant for AIO. Still you could use them for airflow or SP but at 3000 RPM its going to be a loud. The highest I would go is around 2000 rpms and still I think its a lot.

Personally I like my rig to be silent so for an optimized SP fan I would recommend the standard noctua NF-F12 which max speed is going to be around 1500 rpms and SP at 2.61 …. If run at max speed you just hear a nice hum, though I don't run them at max speed.

Honestly the best fan IMHO is going to be the noctua NF-A12x25 PWM "BUT" and but... its brown and expensive...

Some ppl just hate the brown which I love..... The black noctua NF-F12 is a also a great choice. The EK-Vardar EVO 120ER Black BB (500-2200rpm) is also an amazing choice.

No experience with EVGA fans, but specs look good. EVGA makes great products and has an amazing CS. Their 240 and 280 AIO are great coolers. Fans are cheaper if you get them directly from EVGA... 9.99
