Need to find quality (low noise good build) 140mm fan for Antec 300

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I need a new and better fan for my antec 300 to replace the existing 140mm fan. I want a quieter better quality fan that can simply be installed without a lot of difficult installation work. Something that will fit and can be easily installed to replace the existing fan. I have searched and found some that look like they might fit but install information is unclear plus I am not sure as there is conflicting info on the cooling capabilities and quietness of these fans. I

Noctura NF-A14 FLX

Phanteks PH-F140TS_WT

But I am sure there are many others and probably many better.

I would recommend the Noctua NF-A14. If you want to spend a little less you could try the Corsair AF140 but personally I am not fond of those. Both are easy to install, just screw them in.

How difficult is it to install the Noctura in an Antec 300 case? Do you simply screw it in and connect the cables or is there metal work involved?

Just screw it in. The holes for almost all fans are not pre-threaded but most fans, including Noctua fans, come with self tapping screws that create their own threads. Your referring to the top exhaust fan on the Antec 300 correct?
