    27 Pascals = 0.003916 psi. So how does that compare to fans with "low" static pressure?

    Well, here's a seven-bladed competing high-static-pressure fan from Phanteks: it claims 1.72mm H₂0 static pressure; the thicker EKWB claims 2.75mm H₂0. That's 16.9Pa to 26Pa. The thinner but still high-static pressure EKWB Vardar F3 is 2.24mm H₂0 or 22Pa.

    For fans not specifically sold as high static pressure, the Noctua NF-P12 ("superior pressure") offers 1.68mm H₂0 or 16.5Pa; the NF-S12A ULN ultra-low-noise case fan does 0.62mm H₂0 or 6Pa.

    EKWB's ain't top-tier, though: the NF-P12 redux-1700 RPM has it beat at 2.83mm H₂0 or 27.8Pa - and at a 25mm thickness to boot.
