Source here.
Your source shows TRUE Spirit 140 Power confused.gif
There are several variants of the TRUE Spirit 140 cooler out there:
TRUE Spirit 140
TRUE Spirit 140 BW same as TRUE Spirit 140
TRUE Spirit 140 BW Rev. A (sometimes called TRUE Spirit 140 Rev. A) Has offset base and is 165mm tall.

I won't even go into detail about the different fans, but basically TY-140, TY-147 and TY-147A. TY-140 is same as TY-147 in different colors and TY-147A idles at 300rpm and others idled at 550rpm .. don't believe the 900-1300rpm spec, they really do idle at about 550rpm. biggrin.gif

Yeah, I saw that, which is why I gave info on all .. in case he changed it for some reason. thumb.gif

I just read the owner comments: he did a case window mod to fit the cooler. biggrin.gif

I'm really curious to see that picture with the case and the window panel closed.

Thread Starter 
I also forgot the measure the cooler with the fan mounted. Maybe when I get the second fan for the push pull I'll configuration I'll dismount the cooler to replace the thermal paste (to see how it spreads with this bracket) and I'll measure it with the fan.

Right now it sits approximately at 174-5mm from the motherboard. Minus 8mm for the socket would give approximately 166-7mm for the cooler. And the difference could well be attributed to the fan position. Since there is not a slot for the fan to sit, it can be subjective to a few millimeters.

Then I think I can assume both Noctua and Corsair are correct and people need to discount a few millimeters on a case basis depending on motherboard thickness, fan mount position, warped case, etc.

But on the case of the NH-U14S you can lower the fan as much as you want. Maybe some entry level boards have the memory slot too close to the socket, but I think they must be very rare.
