Anyone have experience with the Arctic F14's?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am building a rig in the Fractal Define R4 and I am looking for minimal noise but good/great airflow. This will be an all air cooled rig and I plan to replace the stock fans with the Arctic F14 fans. I will be putting 2 in the front, 2 in the top, one in the rear and possibly one at the bottom of the case. Not sure on the last part but if it is recommended I will do that.

If these fans are not adequate for what I am looking for feel free to suggest others. I want all 140's and 3 pin. Black or black and white with no LED's would be preferred.

So opinions or suggestions?

I don't have the F14 but I do own a few Arctic F12, they are pretty silent and move quite some air. But if you want something that are very powerful, then you should look for something else. It's great if you want your rig to be silent and have a good airflow at the same time.

How about BGears? I was looking at their B-Blasters in 140mm 1800 RPM connected to a fan controller, like a Lamptron.

Bgears are great. Good static pressure, double ball bearing, and pretty cheap. But yes, make sure to use a fan controller or some 7v or 5v cable. They are quite loud at max.
