You'll eventually get some more fans...your testing methodology is flawless.

I wish the same could be said for the fan rating system.

Looks like you're a good complement to eHume on the air-cooling front. You guys should collaborate.

That would be nice, although I don't know how to work with him.

I can't wait to see how more 140mm fans do. So far my F14 is doing ok. thumb.gif

I constantly see the b-gears b-blaster recommended on the forums for a 140mm fan.

Thanks for the work. thumb.gif

140mm fan #4 - Thermalright TR TY-150:



Well, this one is a bit of an oddball. First off, it's not a 140mm fan because the diameter is actually 154mm and the mounting holes are completely unconventional. What I mean is that the holes are in a rectangular arrangement, not square. Horizontally, they're compatible with 140mm mounts but vertically they are in favor with the 120mm's.

As if this wasn't unusual enough, the fan is so big that the blades and the hub came into contact with the heatsink body when I tried to run it in pull mode, so I'm afraid I could only test it in a push configuration. I can't blame the design though as it was meant to be used with Thermalright's own heatsink.

Regardless, this mini monster performed quite well. It moved a lot of air without generating much noise. It's just unfortunate that the unit is difficult to install in a standard chassis or on a heatsink.

This thread is going to be awesome. Don't get me wrong it already is but this could easilly become the most comprehensive comparison of 140mm fans on the web. You seem to be getting off to a really good start.

I notice that a lot of people seem to recommend the b-gears b-blaster for a 140mm fan. I wasn't a fan but they seem popular for some reason. I'm also pretty intrigued by the Koolance 140mm fan and the Akasa Viper 140, they both seem to be quality fans but there is just so little testing on 140mm fans. I'm excited to see what could become of this thread. thumb.gif

Thank you. We'll eventually get them all reveiwed, hopefully.
