Good 140mm static pressure fans?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for some good 140mm static pressure fans for my kraken x60.

I've heard the BlackSilentPro PK-3 from Noiseblocker was really good but I can't find specs on it anywhere.
I've also looked at the Noctua NF-A14 FLX but I'm not sure if its the best for the price range. I do really like Noctua fans though.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Edit: I have the stock FX 140LB fans and am wondering if its worth upgrading and what type of difference it would make in temps.

Let's see..

-SILVERSTONE FHP-141
-Noctua NF-A14 FLX
-Noctua NF-A14 ULN
-Noctua NF-A15 PWM
- Akasa Viper PWM
- Akasa Apache S-Flow PWM
- NZXT FX140LB 1000-2000RPM 3-Speed Adjustable Fans
- Rosewill Hyperborea
- Swiftech Helix 140mm (on <12fpi rads in P-P they are quiet and cool very well; they ARE the "140mm AP15's", at least for now!)
- NoiseBlocker PK-3 High Speed

Avoid:
- BitFenix Spectre/Pro/PWM
- Aerocool Sharks
- Cooler Master Anything (haven't found ANY that are good)
- Corsair AF-series

Hope this helped.

I would say yes, it might be worth an upgrade. You won't get dramatic improvements in temps, but it might help a little. Do you care about noise? Or are you looking for the most silent setup possible?

Well the FX 140LB fans are vary loud maxed out so I run them around 50% most of the time. While I'm running them I can't feel that much air coming out of the top where my radiator/fans are mounted.

This is making me feel like the silent high end fans could do quite a better job for sound vs air flow and pressure.

You forgot to mention BGears blasters :O

Cheap, and one of the best 140mm fan.

it should be mentioned that the SILVERSTONE FHP-141 isn't a true 140mm fan as it has 120mm mounting holes..... You wouldn't even be able to mount it to a 140mm spot without a bracket. It's also quite a bit thicker, so if space is an issue biggrin.gif

The Bgears Blasters are definitely my favorite, but not everyone likes the noise they make...
