Speaking of pains, how did your TY-14xx SQ compare to your other fans? I know only having one of each is quite limiting, but ...

Well....the topic is consistent. The 147A was a touch off from the round, but no great shakes. I was thoroughly impressed with the 143. Moved huge air, and did so much more quietly than the iPPC or Vardar....or at least, with a much less invasive sound. The combo of the two was perfect for me to use as intake to keep up with the three F120MP on my rad exhausting.....except for the royal pain. I'll do a more detailed impression at some point, but short and sweet - both outstanding fans for their applications, excellent sound profile, very nice build quality,and a really, really unfortunate color choice on one.

I think we may have a simple solution to this red / orange color problem.

I just took the sticker off of TY-143 SQ.
Guess what?
Right there before my eyes was a tiny little snap ring clipped onto fan shaft holding the fan in.
A couple of lead holders' using the metal tubes that lead goes into fit nicely into the snap ring, and squeezing the lead holders together a little spreads the clip and presto!, ring releases, and bearing (it's on a spring) slides itself and clip off of shaft.
Now the fan slips out off of motor (shaft is in fan) and fan is in one hand with square housing in the other.

Biggest problem I'm seeing is coming up with a simple way to re-install the clip.
1st, we need an 8mm OD ring piece with 6-7mm ID about 5mm long with tabs on one side to push bearing down on it's spring and hold it in place below clip groove in shaft.
2nd, another round hollow piece that clip can be stuck onto end of and pushed down over shaft to clip the clip into it's groove in shaft.
Or maybe just an piece same size as bearing. set snap ring on bearing and set 2nd bearing like piece on snap ring (a snap ring sandwitch) and slip bearing and clip onto shaft or shaft and fan into bearing and clip.

With a clip this small if it ever sprung away it would be lost forever.

I'll do some pics and post them up when I get a chance.

Specifications.
Shaft is 3mm OD (2.98mm). My digital calipers are to thick to measure the clip ring on shaft.
Ball bearing OD is 8mm

Well that's generally being the case with nearly all ball bearing fans, you are talking about that c-clip around the rotor shaft right? People would rather paint than do that based on history.

I chose a simpler solution - I used a different fan that was black and white to begin with. tongue.gif

There is a definitive difference between c-clip and and snap ring .. I'm assuming you don't know the difference.
C-clip / E-clip compared to a internal snap ring compared to external snap ring

C-clip / E-clip clips into 3 places grove while snap rings clip into groove all the way round the shaft or inside of tube except for the small open area of clip. Obviously exteranal snap ring goes into a grove around a shaft while internal snap ring goes into grove on inside hole / sleeve. I know, kinda anal, but just so you understand the difference. wink.gif

Peeps would rather paint without disassembly? I don't like the idea of paint getting into PCB and motor, but to each thier own I guess.

I should have guessed as much. biggrin.gif
I guess we are both too lazy to do a proper job of it tongue.gif

I check the original TY-143 and it's the same. I just need to find some extra

Sorted this circlip thing out for Scythe GTs and it's the same size for the TY143 - and presumably other TYs - 3mm external circlips (which are too small to have complete eyes) are so common in fans it's really worth getting a decent circlip plier for them, and the hollow metal handle of a 0-0.8mm pin vice is the exact tool required to put them on.
