Best 140mm Case Fan?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Looking for two 140mm case fans. What are generally considered the best case fans with the least amount of noise? I'll trade a little CFM for a lower decibel level.

Ya, those look great. I've got some 120mm Yates on my radiator. I didn't even look to see if they had 140mm's. Thanks.

But the sleeving and only the 3-pin is so dang convenient for cable management...

To each his own, I suppose.

I'm not too worried about super cable management. These will both be located on the side of my case as intakes. I already have two 140mm fans on top as exhaust. I just need to get some air hitting my motherboard. I also don't have a window on my case so the looks don't matter to me.

1) The fan already comes with both 3-pin and 4-pin passthrough. You are paying someone to cut 2 wires with scissors.
2) A sleeving kit (that can cover a dozen fans) costs $10 or less.
