Thanks Elohim for another great link. Do you review for hardwaremax? Very nice reviews. Great detail and data.

At full speed, you have more airflow noise than bearing noise; but it's still present for the most part.
Thank you.

All the heatsinks where a 140mm fan makes sense on, are very similar to the Archon in that regard: Silver Arrow SBE, True Spirit 140, Phanteks 14PE, Noctua D14, Prolimatech Geneses, NZXT HAvik 140, ...)


I don't know, i have still around 10x TY-140 laying around here, and all of them made a more or less audible bearing noise at low rpms, and i'm talking bearing noise in open air. Maybe it's just the difference in perception...
listen to the samples here for the A15 & TY-140 (right side is the sample @ low rpms) and you might realize what i'm talking about:
http://www.hardwaremax.net/reviews/luefter/592-test-noctua-nf-a14-und-nf-a15-140-mm-luefter.html?showall=0&start=5

And for the record: i think the TY-140 is a great choice for a lot of people: if one is not particularly sensitive to these aspects then i'd always recommend the TY-140/147 before the A15 due to the more reasonable price. Above i was solely talking about the fan itself without looking at the price at all though.. ^^

I'd take the TY-140 really...you run your fans open air for regular usage?
Now if you have an externally mounted radiator and a super sensitive ear, I recon you might hear something, not sure how disturbing it will be though.
I can't notice the noise of a less than 1300rpm TY-140 inside of my CM-690, even when put against the mesh as intake. Being a musician with hours and hours of band rehearsals might have made me more tolerable to uber fast fans perhaps tongue.gif

Nah, at daytimes or when i'm gaming/listening to music@ i dont really care either as long as the Fans are reasonably quiet, but at night when it's really quiet in my house and i'm reading, surfing or working, then little things like These tend to get on my nerves.

You can always run passive turning them fans off if you're just reading...I personally don't mind cause my gf's pc has obnoxious 80mm side panel fans, and they spin up when she starts playing something, so there's really no point. xD
I did enjoy her face when I turned on my 220cfm Nidec's full bore for the first time though lol I can't use them till I build a pwm fan controller...

I want to be able to hear a mouse scurrying about... if there ever is one. My study is so quiet I can hear birds through thermal pane windows and the water moving through heating radiators. I hate starting up my test rig because the TX750v2 PSU fan is way louder than any "normal" room noises and drowns them out. mad.gif

I got a dove and a pidgeon in my pc/living/kitchen room...They tend to "sing" quite often, the one I like the most is the strange picazuro columba that I rescued. Awesome yet bizarre song xD
As for the TX750, I can't hear it, means I'm deaf?

Maybe you got one of the quiet ones. The origial TX750 was not too bad. v2 was much louder. New ones in last 3-4 months now have fan that doesn't run under low load so are quiet.

Seems like I'm going to end up having to buy a pair of those A15s...

Today I received a couple of TY-147s. They are really silent, however they seem to be nerfed by my dust filter (which is not too restrictive), I'm not sure the TY-147 will be better for cooling my hdd cages than a volted-down AP-141.

Tator, do you have any idea of how to compare the TY-147 against the AP-141? Measuring temps while copying data between HDDs or running HDTach (or its modern equivalent)?
