I can't hear a difference. YMMV.

I just got a TY-141 yesterday. It's still making its rounds around my case, but so far it is absolutely stellar. No clicking. It's actually quieter than the TY-140 at similar rpm and it even seems to push better air (non-measured). The bearing is exceptionally smooth. I was expecting some compromise with the switch from fdb to ball, but Thermalright has outdone themselves with this one. Barring any unforseen changes in performance, this is without question the best 140mm I've ever used.

As per topic: there is no go-to place for fan reviews, really. Reviews are getting better, but at this point even the established sites wind up using improvised procedures for measuring, not to mention differing in their assessment of what even constitutes fan performance. Unfortunately it's not like benching a gpu; there are so many usage and environmental factors that affect fan efficacy. The Xbit review is pretty good, and Tom's just did a good fan roundup recently, notably measuring air velocity both on the perimeter and interior of the fan's air path, which was the first I've seen that in a review (and important).

Odd, I have a pair as top intake fans and I don't hear any ticking at all with them. They're dead quiet for me.

Someone needs to test the Rosewill Hyborea 140mm. It looks really good, and is inexpensive. Reminds me of a blademaster.

Rosewill ROCF-11003 Hyperborea 140mm Case Fan

 

Type     Case Fan

Compatibility     Case

Fan Size    140mm

Bearing Type    HDB (Hydro Dynamic Bearing)

RPM    600 -1300 RPM

Air Flow    89.55 CFM

Noise Level    12.5 -22.19 dB(A)

Power Connector    4 Pin

Color    Black

Dimensions    140 x 140 x 25mm

Features
    Super silent 14cm fan with S-FLOW blades supplying 30% more airflow than a standard fan at the same speed. The greater performance combined with PWM automatic speed control allows the fan noise to be kept to a minimum.

    Max static air pressure: 2.76 mm H2O

 

That sounds like a Blade Master, all right. Specs seem OK, except that the upper end SPL is liable to be louder than 22 dB.

TY-141 sounds good.

 

I agree with getting multiple opinions on things.

 

Got a link to the Tom's review?

i seem to remember when they released the ty-141 that reviewers found it was slightly louder and had less airflow which surprised me. im glad that is not the case

im not sure if i would trust rosewill haha. though i hear they do have some good products and that certainly looks impressive from the specs. the user reviews do mention noise however
they look a lot like these http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13925/fan-905/Akasa_140mm_x_25mm_Apache_Black_Super_Silent_PWM_F

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/331629-28-cooling-roundup-2012 . Strange that it's formatted as forum posts, but it's got some rather atypical tests that make it a nice addition to the review pile.

I know that the TY-150 got lukewarm reception, but I haven't seen much on the 141.

Bear in mind my experience is just one person with one TY-141 and some un-quantified observations. But right now it's working rear exhaust and is pretty darn quiet, and I can feel the airflow 2 feet out. The noise-to-airflow, at least unrestricted, is simply excellent. Anecdotally.

Initially I got one to test, it didn't really tick and I was more than happy with the airflow/ noise, so I bought 6 more to replace all my fans. All of these ty-140s ticked, some were really bad as in the video. Maybe its a quality control issue, as out of 7 fans I kept the original, some users say they tick, some say they don't.
