140mm case fans... - Page 3

Sigh.

The early 140 vardars had a lot of issues, most have since been recalled. But there either seem to be some of the old ones still in rotation, or some of the new ones are still having issues.

But when working properly, vardars are very quiet for the amount of air they move.

Just received a pair of the 1850rpm Darkside GTs, quickly becoming my fav 120mm fan for flow vs noise. They are really sonically innocuous up to about 1500rpm. Prefer them to my 120mm F2/F3 Vardars.

I have used many Noc A15 PWMs and they are the least clicky 140mm I've used. No hums or ticks, only smooth flow. The industrial models are great for industrial use or where noise is #3 on the list. I can't take the racket for domestic use tho.

Waiting to receive non-defective 140mm Vardars. So far the few I've used had bearing grinding noises or pwm chirp issues.
Agree, GTs are in a league of their own .. or at least a very small league of peers.

Poor little black kitty. poke.gif Maybe someday the Great White North will come out of it's cave and have access to TY-14x fans at reasonable prices. helpinghand.gif

Would be nice if Thermalright would just make a square version of the TY-14x already...

I think I'm leaning more towards the F2-140 1600rpm EK Vardar...
I can't see myself wanting to go higher than that...

Or is it still better going for the F3-140ER 2000rpm? I mean it is all black...
And the same price.

F3 then you can turn them down or up when or if you need it.

The F3-140ER can go as low as the slower F1 and F2, so can just run it at any rpm you want. The only reason to get the F1 or F2 is if you're planning to run them at 12V constantly. (or because they're slightly cheaper)

I told Thermalright "Make one and they will come." Well, they are finally 'making' some. At least that is the latest in the grapevine. Hopefully our dreams will come true in the next month or so.

Oh hmm...
Another thought about the F2 and F3...

My MB only adjust PWM fans in increments of 12.5%
so 12.5%, 25%, 37.5%, 50%, 62.5%, 75%, 87.5%, 100%

So...
Whilst they'll both go down to a nice quiet speed the F3 will get louder quicker as it has bigger jumps in speed

I dont know if that's an issue or not...hmmm...

I have used lots and lots of T-14x fans. There are basically 3 different PWM signal to RPM (really its volt pulse rate) curves. I've used them mostly on older systems with Gigabyte, Asus, and MSI motherboards and always been able to get the speed / airflow at the custom levels I wanted. based on PWM to heat.

You really love those thermalright fans tongue.gif shame they don't fit in the front of my case wink.gif

Also the thermalright web page specs doesnt list static pressure...

Any idea what they are?
