looking for 140mm and 120mm fans

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am looking for 2x 140mm fan and a 120mm fan to replace the stock fans in my future 650D. Does anyone have any suggestions? The 2x 140mm will be the top exhaust while the 120mm as the rear exhaust. It seems like the GT are very popular around here, but they don't seem to be in stock. I have a lamptron fan controller so I don't mind it being loud.

Thanks in advanced.

For 140 mm fans, I suggest to take a review on Thermalright TY40 as this is currently the best 140mm fan. This fan makes Silver Arrow can go head to head against Noctua NH-D14..

For 120 mm fans, you can use Aerocool Shark or Scythe S-Flex as exhaust. But, if you can get Gentle Typhoon it will be a very good choice though..

It seems to me that the Aerocool Shark has better specs than the GT and it is cheaper. Whats so great about these GT?

Having witnessed first hand how effective my Gentle Typhoons have been versus the stock Noctua fans on my U12P cooler, I can find no fault with them. I may or may not also have a love affair with the Noiseblocker PL-1/2 for extremely quiet airflow, although neither fan will win any CFM contests.

Red, to answer your question: ignore factory specs. Use reviews from folks like Xbitlabs and Tator Tot (here on OCN) and you will see why the Gentle Typhoons are so highly praised. All models produce fairly low sound and have more gentle noise characteristics than other fans, they don't seem to mind being mounted in any direction, and they dominate other 120mm fans for airflow through obstructions while remaining quiet.

I can fit 120mm fans on top instead of the 140mm. Are the GTs better than the Thermalright TY140? I am planning for my top 2 fans as intake and my rear as exhaust if that matters.

If you have room for a 140mm fan get a TR TY-140. As the owner of sixteen regular GT's I am extremely familiar with their performance, from 500 rpm to 1850 rpm. I have three GT's in my case. I also have a TY-140 in my case. In every spot where I use a GT, if there was room for a 140mm fan I'd use a TY-140.

GT's produce lower cfm than fans with similar rpm's, but they have somewhat higher static pressure. They are like fans running in low gear; and when they come up against resistance they don't get a lot louder - not as loud as other fans.

TY-140's share some of the same properties. See this review.

I compared a lot of fans myself. See items one and four in my sig.

I just checked the spec for the TY-140 again and it seems like it mounts as a 120mm. I think I'll get 3, one for the rear as well unless for some reason it doesn't fit. Thanks =)
