Out of all the 140mm ive seen they have the best specs. hopefully its a good choice.
I can already list some (Shadowclock feel free to take these)
Yate Loon Medium Speed 140mm
The stay away from fans:
Thermalright X-Silence 140's
- do not produce rated CFM
Scythe Kaze Maru 140's *
- do not produce rated CFM, have a loud bearing.
Xigmatek Crystal Series XLF-X145x's
- Have a close to inaudiable squeel on some fan controllers. Voltage or PWM based. Haven't rooted the issue yet
** Noctua's normally have low Static Pressure, but most 140mm fans are lacking in static pressure to begin with, and the Noctua's are on the same lines as the rest of the pack, but more towards the bottom of the spectrum.
*(I do knot know about Kaze Maru 2's)
