Cheaper alternative to a 140mm Noiseblocker PK-2?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Looking for something with similar specs, 1200RPM-1400RPM(max) with CFM around 55+ or so. Will be pairing four of these with a 280 radiator. Quieter the better of course, but don't want to spend $25 per fan to get it.

140s vs 140s

PK3 really not all that special, about average. The aerocool sharks were the better of the bunch at high speed, but they were all pretty close.

140s vs 120s plus adapater

GT-15s and Delta Rev3 on adapters actually did better than any of the 140s..

yea like martin said, there really aren't any really good 140mm fans, there are a few decent ones, like the akasa vipers or apaches, or the scythe kama flex 135mm fans which have 140mm mounting holes, but you'd want the 1200rpm or 1600rpm, which are kind of hard to find for a decent price

Wow, it looks like the Thermalright X-Silents at a lower RPM do better than the low speed Yate Loons. That might be an option. Those Akasa I was looking at last night actually as well. Thanks for the tips.
