ThermoChill PA140.3
Description:

The PA140.3 is exactly like her smaller siblings, the only major difference being the added length and width to accommodate 140mm fans versus the typical 120′s. The PA140 measures in 75mm longer and 13mm wider at 480x142x60mm (LxWxH), than 120mm variant. Now this is not ThermoChill’s first adventure beyond 120mm, we cannot forget the PA160 now can we?. The PA140.3 sports the traditional matte black paint and the familiar 6-32 untapped mounting holes. One tidbit that never crossed my mind until it came to photos was the fan spacing, what the heck is standard fan spacing for 140mm fans anyway, is there one? Feel free to drop me a note and clue me in if so. Regardless of a standard or not, I measured the fan spacing at 20mm which does leave 5mm gap between the fans and I didn’t receive one of the dreaded neoprene gaskets (those gaskets are a pain anyway). Those fans mount up to the infamous 10mm plenum, which does give you a little breathing room when screwing those fans down. However, always double check your screw length before mounting up your fans. One of the worst mistakes you can make is rush along and puncture a tube with too long of screws. Speaking of tubes, yes they are still brass tubes but the PA140 has 13 rows (7 on the left barb port, 6 on the right) versus the 12 on the PA120 but still in dual row configuration. I was surprised to count only one extra row, I guess I expected at least 14 but it must have been impossible due to space. You have to leave enough room for those copper fins, you don’t want to short change the workhorse of the radiator now. You can count yourself in the last picture on the page. Rounding out the feature overview is the familiar ThermoChill PA 10 fins per inch and G3/8 barb ports. I mentioned this in the PA120.3-15mm review, but I don’t see any major problem with G3/8. Don’t worry, the soap box will stay hidden as that is all I’ll say about G1/4 versus G3/8 today. One last thing before the photo show, yes the 6-32 self-taping screws are included but I never use them so in the box they stay. Matte Black Finish Copper fins, brass tubes and end tanks Dual row, Two-pass u-flow configuration 10mm fan plenum on both sides G3/8 Barb ports 10 Fins Per Inch (FPI) 6-32 untapped fan/mount holes Dimensions: 480x142x60mm (LxWxH)
