Corsair LPX will work just fine. heres a few pics trying to show the clearance. You'll see the front fan is sliiiightly higher than the back fan, thats due to my fcking up and accidentally popping off fan clip. I had to move the fan up slightly to reinstall it correctly and just left it.

Why not just get a 64GB 4x set? Other than aesthetics, I really don't see the point of getting dual 4x or an 8x kit if you just need 64GB.

yo i have a question. would you guys ever get cryorig (xf140) fans as additional case fans? There may be some fanboy subjectivity to do with it. But objectively, we have aesthetics, 6 year warranty, decent noise (23 dBa) competitive airflow (76 cfm) and static pressure (1.44 mmH2O) at $17.

Noctua's NF-P14 fans are 19.8 dBa in noise, 64.9 cfm in airflow, and 1.29 mmH20 in pressure at $20 with 6 year warranty with a mocha color scheme. I have yet to see a full rig decked out with cryorig, but am considering modding my case with the CR trademark logo for funsies. xD

Using published specifications is not much better than grabbing numbers out of a lottery ball machine. biggrin.gif
Test and review sites like Thermalbench and Cooling Technique give better info and comparisons. The Nocs do perform better, but the XF140 is still good enough for me .. much better than baby poo brown. tongue.gif

I swear buying Noctuas is like buying KTM bikes with their orange-y scheme. Unfortunately, they're the most commonly available fans through retail channels over here (besides Corsairs).

As @doyll stated, specs on the box are inaccurate, mainly due to variances in testing methods and no regulation. That said, I personally wouldn't use an XF140. While it is a good match with coolers, and good looking, the sound signature is very coarse. There is a lot more to how invasive a sound is than a simple dB rating. There are similarly priced fans that perform as well and are black or black/white.

Such as Phanteks 140mm fans? They certainly fit the bill imo.

Phanteks are quite good .. and usually reasonably priced too. thumb.gif

That would be one. Thermalright TY-147A would be another for lower flow applications. With plenty of Noctua, be quiet, Cryorig, Bitfenix and Cougar fans on hand....the Phanteks are the ones in my case if that means anything.

I actually went that route:



Will get rid of the XF140 behind the H5. Don't really see a difference with it. Most of the PH-F140SPs in the local market came from those removed from Enthoos around this country, some of these people probably went for an all-Noctua or all-Corsair configuration...
