If the problem was the air flow into the case, why the Hyper 212+ works well?
I wonder, Tuniq TX4 > Arctic MX-4? Is there some better thermal compound out there?
Top speed of 800rpm. No idea what you are talking about.
TY-14x series are almost all 1300rpm fans. All newer ones that are PWM are 300-1300rpm .. including the above TY-140B.
The basics behind the TY-14x fan model code is the 14 was for 140mm and the last number was for color. TH-140 was tan/gray, TY-143 red/orange, TY-147 black/white, etc. The 3rd number also covered the differences in motor. TY-147A is same as TY-147 but 300-1300rpm instead of older 550-1300rpm(spec says something like 800rpm idle, but they idle at 500-550rpm) TY-143 also idle down to 550-600rpm. Early on the TY-141 was released in almost same colors as TY-140 but has a different blade design. In 20-20 hindsight Thermalright told me they wish they and used a different coding system, but it is what it is. Always easy to look back and see how doing it different may have been better.
