140mm Top Exhaust

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just bought a Cougar V14-HB and it vibrates too much when I mount it on the top.

Does anyone know of a decent 140mm that is very quiet? And that I can mount on the top?

I'm using this fan at the side panel.
I hooked the Cougar at the fan header and it's quiet for me.

The fan even at full blast seems quieter than my other NZXT FZ-140mm fan.

The Cougar makes a noise that I quite sure is the turbulence from the air moving inside the case.
The FZ fan has a bit louder motor noise at full blast.
The noise that comes from the Cougar isn't the same.

yes, mine work just fine when mounting on the side, but when I try to blow air up, it makes a vibration sound.

Spacing it away from the grille will probably solve the problem.thumb.gif

Well, I tested it outside of the case and it made that noise when it was blowing air up.

I just ordered 2 N14's and a touch fan controller.

This noise seems to be the turbulence from the wind, isn't it?
Or does this noise seems to be the fan motor sound?

No this is in the motor, i took it out to test and I could definitely hear the motor clicking.

Probably a defective bearing or shaft / chip in the motor.

The sound that I could hear isn't like the motor clicking.

I have other 120mm fans like the XtraFlo (212 Evo stock fan), the Blade Master (212 Plus stock fan) and the Akasa Viper (Akasa Venom Voodoo stock fan) and these fan could be louder than the Cougar at higher speeds.

Any of my 120mm fan spinng above 1500rpm could be annoying than my Cougar 140mm. LOL
