And like I said, I knew exactly what I was doing when I bought the fan so please stop making assumptions. They're being used on the front of my Little Devil case with the supplied 140mm adapters and work great.
They were bought to reduce noise and ended up being noisier, nothing more and nothing less.
These fans are useless as case fans, well lets face it only a fool would use a fan with high static pressure as a case fan.
These belong on thick heats sinks, radiators or if you're like me, thick phase change condensers.
Air coolers they make a lot of sense on and I can't see the of them on radiators or condensers
The whole point of 140mm is more air flow at a given RPM compared to a 120mm fan or the same air flow at a lower noise level.
I can't use them on my condenser because they're too big and create a lot or air turbulence and would be noisier then my existing my 120x38mm fan and I can't get a shroud for a 140mm fan as it would not mount.
You couldn't mount it on a 140mm radiator, and why would want to mount it on a 120mm radiator over a 120x38mm that won't be wasting any fan area and would probably generate wind turbulence noise too.
And please refrain from using the word troll, it's nothing but a method of sparking a reaction from a person, it does the forum no favours and it's not big and it's not clever and makes a person look immature.
