140mm Fans Good Static Pressure ?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Thought I'd do this in the water cooling section since this is got to do with the Corsair H110 (AIO) I wanted to know which currently are or is a very good if not the "best" 140mm fan that has good static pressure? which I understand is very important when pushing air. I have been looking these
BitFenix Spectre PRO PWM 140mm fans as you can see they have a good Air Pressure of 2.8 mmH2O but at the same time the noise is 29.2 dB(A) ? which might be a little to load since i won't be using a fan controller. However if they sound anything like the Gentle Typhoon AP-15's at full speed I will be ok with that since they are 28 dBa not a big difference but obviously BitFenix should be a bit loader I say "should be" because i have heard fans that "should be" say 25 dBa at full speed but sound more like 40 dBa. So if anyone has used these fans that would really help or any other good 140mm fan(s) I will really appreciate all the help I can get thanks. smile.gif

Stay away from the BitFenix Spectre PRO fans they suck more butt then air

Bitfenix flat out lies with those specs they are nowhere true of what they say i know first hand i had a 120mm and a 140mm and they are crap

A very good and quiet 140mm fan is the Noctua NF-A14 FLX or ULA

Seconding the NoiseBlocker BlackSilentPro PK-3

I have an AX120 which is quite restrictive, so I needed good pressure. My case is FT03-mini, has mounts for a 140mm, so I bought several fans and tested them all: Silverstone AP141, Akasa Viper and Apache, BGears B-Blaster, NB PK-2, PK-3 and PK-PS. For the non-PWM fans I used a Rheosmart to convert PWM to DC, and tuned each fan to ~1100 rpm. Far and away the PK-3 was the quietest and the best performing. YMMV.

I may order a few of these to try:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16998/fan-1053/Swiftech_Helix_140mm_x_25mm_Z-Bearing_Fan_-_1500_RPM_HELIX-140-BW.html?tl=g36c15s775

Of the few I did test, the Yate loon high speeds actually produced the most air flow through a rad of the 25mm variety, but the aerocool shark was better at noise. In the 140mm factor the fans with fewer blades seemed to suffer blade harmonics issues at higher speeds.

FYI, not readily available, but you can find very expensive San Ace 140Ls if you really want an industrial high speed fan.
http://www.newark.com/axial-diagonal-fans/series/san-ace-140l/pg/810099461

I tested one a while back and it did very well, but 24V tops is a bit awkward for PC use and they cost way too much to be practical. Definately king of 140mm pressure and industrial build quality though. Noise wasn't too bad either for a higher speed fan if I remember right, similar to a good quality Delta fan.

Found that old test I ran:

Now THAT is a MAN fan...for those with a need for 140mm fan e-peen...lol

Just would like to thanks everyone who replied really appreciate it. So know the 3 fans am looking at are:

Akasa 140mm AK-FN063
Noctua NF-A14 FLX
NoiseBlocker BlackSilentPro PK-3


As I said in my first post I won't be using a fan controller so from the above the Noctua NF-A14 FLX has the lowest noise level of 19,2 dB(A) while the Akasa 140mm AK-FN063 has the highest Static pressure of 3.12 mm H2O but the noise is 26.01 dB(A) The Noiseblocker BlackSilent Pro Fan PK3 Noise is 27 dB(A) but I would rather go with the Akasa better Static pressure and lower noise. Just can't seem to make my mind up between the 3 smile.gif

However the other option I do have is a 140mm to 120mm fan adapter but I don't know how the performance would be like but this way I have a option to go with fans like the Gentle Typhoon AP-15 or Noctua NF-F12 PWM which I have read are good for radiators.

NF-A14 FLX even on max speed you have to have your ear right up to it to hear it and it really does move a lot of air

In have mine on max speed all the time and i can feel the air coming out of case even with my hand a few cm away

Never tried the noctua 14 or Akasa, but their 120mm fans didn't test out as anything special. GTs with adapters actually did best for me in my little 140s vs really good 120+adapter test:
