Use some twist-ties, or something similar, to secure the fan to the slightly larger 200mm holes. They are supposed to be excellent fans, for the size. smile.gif

I have read great things about these... I have been thinking about picking one up.

Also heard good things from the Silverstone case owners thread as well. I went ahead and picked up a 140mm "air penetrator". Received it today. So I'm taking some temps of my gpu/cpu with/without the new fan to see if there is any noticeable difference.

Please do. And are you putting it into a 600T?? If so, where at??

x2... Your results will most likely make me buy a couple of these. I wouldn't mind swapping the stock 200mm for a 180mm and replacing the Xigmatek 120mm that I put in the 5.25 tray.

Im thinking more of getting a couple of these, for my 600T and my HTPC/gaming rig I am building. Just need to get a fan controller thats better than the one on the 600T. Anyone know how to make the voltages have a wider range on the fan controller?? I am not even using it now, because of the narrow range.

I haven't fully understood the dissatisfaction I've heard from several sources about the 600T's fan controller. I assume the controller runs the fans at full speed with the controller turned up all the way. So do people want the fans to be able to run slower on the low setting than they do now? I do acknowledge that the controller seems to function more like a two way switch than a progressive speed control. But it seems that a wider voltage spread will only act to run the fans slower on the low end.

I only have experience with the stock fans on the 600T. I wonder if the controller runs replacement fans any slower than it does the stock fans.

In my opinion the low setting of the controller is slow enough, at least with the stock fans. It reduces noise (and airflow) slightly when full flow isn't required, which is all I ask for now. I guess with high rpm fans it might be different?

Yes that is what people are saying. Like the 2180 RPM GT's, if you run them at about 1000-1200 RPM's you can barely here them but they are spinning fast enough to still push a goo amount off air. But at 1500+ RPM's they will be making some noise. 1700+ RPM's they will make a good amount of noise. So if you can turn down the voltage enough you will be stuck with a PC that never is quite.

BI compact. It didn't fit because of the beveled edge on the top. Size wise it would have been fine. Been up all night sleeving but I will post pics in the am.

I have 3x140mm fan options in my Lian-Li, and had a jerry-rigged 120mm fan in the 140mm holes for a while. So I went ahead and ordered one Silverstone AP141, since S&H was only $3, and I'd rather make multiple orders, then one large order, and hate the fans.


So far, I am mildly impressed. I guess I was expecting a lot more, by all the "hype", but in reality, it seems to be a very good case fan, for air flow/cfm to decibel ratio. I am getting roughly the same air movement from the 140mm Silverstone as I did on my Noiseblocker S3 (same as a GT-AP/15), at a much quieter dB.

I am going to move it around my case a little more today, and see what I think of them. I would likely buy another again, as a case fan.
The Silverstone does have a "stream" of air, while the traditional NB has a bit more air flow closer to the fan, and a little less towards the end of the case, so there is a slight trade off.

[either a smooth stream the width of the case (Silverstone), or a slightly more mild air stream closer to my gpu, but less airflow towards the end of the case (Noiseblocker) ]




I do not have a 600t, but came here to learn more about the case, what owners thought, pictures, etc., so since I've been here I've learned quite a bit about them. I would however like one of the new "white" 600t's or the 650d.

I guess I never understood this..


The 2150rpm model has the same blade construction/design as the AP15 (1850) right? So if it does, what is the point of getting a 2150 model and running it @ 1200rpm? Why not just get a 1250rpm model and run it at 12v?

Wouldn't it be the same rpm/dB ratio, roughly?
