Volume flow (throughput) in m³h
The black bar is the specification from the data sheet, which we check with at this point. Let’s first start with the value for m3 per hour, which is more common in Germany, and compare the individual installation variants from pure case fans to use on 60 mm radiators. We can see that the fan does not reach the targets in the open setup and without radiators, but it can definitely beat the reference in the installation variants on the radiators (except for the 45).
By the way, it really gets interesting at the lower speeds! Because the NZXT F120 does not let itself be impressed and acts even at only 500 rpm still absolutely usable and clearly better than the reference! But, this is important, at the end we will evaluate the speeds in relation to the sound level and the volume flow achieved, and we will find out some amazing things. So it remains quite exciting, because speed is not equal to speed!
Volume flow (throughput) in cfm
The whole again in cfm. However, since only the unit of measurement changes, what has already been said for the airflow applies to the same extent.
