XPG Nidec Vento Pro 120 PWM Fan Review

The XPG Nidec Vento Pro 120 PWM is a high-quality fan made by Nidec, one of the top-brands in this sector. It promises for high performance and increased reliability. I will use my Longwin fan testing machine, to check if it trully delivers what its manufacturer claims. 

According to XPG, the Nidec Vento Pro 120 PWM is suitable for both high static pressure and high airflow applications, which is uncommon. XPG claims static pressure up to 3.15mm H20 and up to 75 CFM airflow, making this fan ideal for cooling radiators or chassis.

Thanks to the dual ball-bearing, which can easily handle high operating temperatures, the Vento Pro has an extremely high lifetime at 25℃, up to 250,000 hours MTTF (mean time to failure), which decreases at 60,000 MTTF at 60℃, which is a pretty high operating temperature.

To reduce output noise, XPG states that the motor’s design and the motor’s support mechanism utilize a double-vibration reduction structure and a spring instrument. Moreover, the fan propeller is designed to reduce disturbing frequencies, which I will check with my equipment. The four anti-vibration rubber pads on the fan’s corners also help reduce noise output. XPG states that the maximum noise is only 28 dBA at full speed (2150 RPM), but it doesn’t state its methodology to obtain this measurement.

  1. hello, thanks for sharing your insight and test on fans… I love this fan… the only issue I have is the ball bearing noise… my questions is: is the noise lower on PWN or DC mode? thanks in advance!!
