The best 140mm radiator fans?

post #1 of 66
Thread Starter 
So it looks like they finally got the radiator that I wanted in stock, the problem now is that the nice looking fans that I wanted for my build are still nowhere to be seen. So I'll forget about those and go for the best noise/performance ones. I'll even paint them if I feel like it's needed.

So anyway what are the best noise/ performance 140mm fans? They will be six in push/pull configuration on a Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 420mm with a powerful fan controller to find the best bearable noise.

These two roundups are starting to be quite old at this point.

Could the Thermalright TY-140 fans still be the best ones?

As far as I've been able to find, there isn't a single 140mm fan that can hold a candle to its 120mm sibling, so the best option remains to just use Bgears adapters.

I don't think there are many situations where you are able to fit a push/pull config with adapters.

Well at least I'm not able to.

These are very quiet, have decent air flow and decent static pressure, but they still pale in comparison to their 120mm counterparts, especially the pulse model. As cougars are pretty new, I've not seen them in comparison round-up type reviews yet.

[Edit]
1.4 mmh2o & 70 cfm @ 12v

If they are quite new it could be the reason why I wasn't able to find them here in Europe. Any other suggestions?

Agreed. And I wouldnt use push pull. Just either or w/ a good fan like a Gentle Typhoon is good enough.

I have 2 of these coming and 13 120mm ones for my current sr 2 build
Unfortunately they don't offer a 140mm in their SP line. The AF line is for unrestricted air flow at high cfm. If your rad has really low FPI, you may be able to get them to work well, though.

[Edit]
The UT60 is probably too thick for the low static pressure fans to work well on.

Im using the SP 120mm for my rads.

Those AC rads are high-ish fpi....maybe not such a good choice

Gotta be the Silverstone Air Penetrators then.....
