What are some good 140mm high airflow case fans?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi!
As the title says i'm out after some new case fans since my components gets pretty hot and i'm not really suprised since i have only 2 fans which aren't good anyway. I don't care about looks at all so i guess that will make it all easier. I have only one or actually two requirements which is they should't be too expensive and shouldn't sound too much even i know it's hard when i want fans to move some air tongue.gif. and btw with expensive i mean fans like noctua. smile.gif

Thanks on advance and have a great friday guys! thumb.gif

What case do you have and what is current fans?
Heatsink used on CPU?
Which GPU?
What is your ambient temps?
Where are you getting your temps for CPU/GPU?
Is it load or idle?

Fractal Design Define R4 (the ones that come with the case)
Hyper 212 EVO
R9 290 reference cooler
29-30°C
Don't really understand the last two question. Would you mind explaining what you mean? Do you mean what temps I get on CPU and GPU idle and during load?

Anyway i just found out my local store have a really nice price on the Scythe Slip Stream XT 140mm 1700rpm is it anything to have?

As long you remove the top HDD cage you have clear airflow from the front without being blocked.
If you have only one SSD or HDD, move that to the ODD bay or SSD behind Mobo. That way you can remove the bottom HDD cage and both front fans have clear airflow.
With those high temps, you will get higher temps in your the R4. As the dampening material will keep it slightly warmer and the front panel blocks quiet a bit of airflow.

You can take the stock front fan and move up top for a 2nd exhaust.
Add 2 new front intake and bottom intake.
Scythe Slip Stream XT is not a bad fan, but it does have a louder noise at high speed.

Will do it sound like a good idea! What fans would you recommend btw? smile.gif Is the Design 140mm Silent Series R2 anything to have perhaps?

Which of these is better, Xigmatek XAF or Cougar CFD?
post #9 of 14
Xigma is over price. Cougar is not bad fan.

What fans to suggest depends on what prices are where you live.

Here the TY-147 is only 5.99 GBP A very good fan for a very low price. But they are not square and have 120mm fan mount spacing (105mm). If you have access too a good table saw or power miter saw they can easily be made 140x140mm. It is explained in link.

They now will easily fit into Define R4.
Use a PWM splitter with PSU power and control their speed with PWM signal from CPU fan header as explained in 1st link in my sig.
