I didn't think to try specifically that with my D14-related testing (see item 4 in my sig) - yet. I'll have to add it to my to-do list. So far, though, if you'll look at Secrets of the D14 Chapter 2 and Chapter 3, you can get a notion that there won't be much difference in performance.

I wish I could change the position of the middle fan and put it at the back. so that the middle is empty.. does it still perform well if I change position ?

It didn't occur to me to try that. I'll go back and do it later. But from the other tests I've done I suspect it will make little difference to temps.

I'm in the middle of testing. I've finished the series with the P14 on LNA and the P14 on ULNA. Those produce very quiet running, at around 20 dBA.

I did a quick exploration of the TY-140, and then on to the current series - the 800 rpm Slip Stream 140. With this I can get ultra-quiet running, in the mid- to high teens.

when I'm done with that, I'll put the P14 back in to test. But each series takes a long time: each fan runs 45 minutes, and I do processing for another 15 minutes, so it's an hour a fan. Each series involves about 15-20 fan runs. And I have to take time off for real life.

As it stands, the Slip Stream 140 run is a do-over: I was not satisfied with my method the first time.
