Default Carbide 500R Side Fan Airflow Specs?

With some digging (ie. using the search box), I was able to find the following specs for the stock front intake and back exhaust fans:

Front 120mm x 25mm
RPM - 1200
CFM - 43.2
dBA - 18
Static pressure - 1.6mm H2O
Power - 1.2 Watts

Rear 120mm x 25mm
RPM - 1200
CFM - 43.2
dBA - 18
Static pressure - 1.7 mm H2O
Power - 2.16 Watts

Special Thanks to @RAM GUY

Does anyone have the specs for the 200mm side fan?

I am a little disappointed that Corsair doesn't provide these specs up front. It makes it more difficult to understand and strategically manage airflow.

Can't find anything about that fan in Corsair's product info. The other clear 200mm fan used in the Graphite series cases has a different sku than the one you are asking about. I doubt that the 500R's fan has better specs than the Graphite series 200mm fan, which is 1000 RPM and up to 92CFM, 28.8dbA.

IMO, most fan specs from most manufactures are worthless, particularly air flow and noise level, and attempting to use specs to compare different manufactures fans is a mistake, since they are not based upon any standard, or formally verified by anything.

I need same information about 200mm White LED Fan from Carbide 500R.
I can't choose between fan from 600T or 500R White LED 200mm.
I need for Obsidian 650D like front fan...
Difference is in blades can someone tell me something more.
650D and 600T fans are same.
Why they don't write specification in their shop...???
RPM, CFM, db
