Corsair AF140 or Thermalright TY-140? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Believe me it will matter more when get your nice new computer up and running, everything's working so you do all our cable management, close up your case, start the computer and a fan runs full speed... so you open it up and search in all your nicely managed cables, finally cut the zipties to find the problem, find a wire loose from plug, take everything loose, solder it back together, start computer to be sure it's all working, stuff the last bit in and close it up. Wow, it all works.. no.. wait.. the exhaust fan isn't running now. And away you go again, get it fixed and all is good. Month or two later you open up case to clean, finish, close it up. Start computer and guess what?? Another fan is running full speed.. or one isn't spinning at all.. and the older and more stressed the ends get the more it happens. mad.gif

Been there, got that t-shirt... Ended up stripping the 5 fan splitter apart and rebuilding it completely. After that I buy Gelid. thumb.gif


Gelid are about same price.. and if you need more than 4 fans on one PWM signal an extra $6.00 for a second splitter is cheap peace of mind

However I noticed the 120mm screw holes on the top of the R4 are slightly off center to the grill. Since the thermalrights are 140mm but use 120mm mounting that means a portion of the fan will be blocked by the case. Are there any cheap adapters like what Noctua packs in with there fans?

how about this question? i am aware the thermalrights come with nothing i have one on my macho.

i dont need a pwm splitter. i have an asus maximus V gene which has 5ish pwm sockets that you can set custom profiles for each.
