Also, they are 140x140 and should go as easily as stock fans. Also, they are completely black, if it matters.

I ordered just two Akasas to push air trough my 280 rad which I mounted front. Also my brother upgraded Noctuas NH-D14 with them: They are more silent, have very competitive airflow and higher static pressure with about 60% price of Noctuas.
So are they a better fan disregarding the price?

Well obviously it is not worth paying 16€ each if swapping noctuas to them is a downgrade. Brother says cpu temps dropped 5-8 degrees depending core clocks and cpu usage. And that is indeed by just switching noctuas "stock fans" to Akasas. I think that is HUGE! So yes, I'd say they are better even they are cheaper.

And quieter too? If so that's crazy. I'd definitely pick up a few.

I've never heard of these fans before but I am also thinking of picking one up

Well google them. Of course, numbers are just numbers. But their performance speaks for themselves.

I am considering switching my XB rig to a R5 case, but I need a bit of info on rad support.

Currently I am running 2 360 rads and I would like to keep those.
From what I can see, There should be plenty of room for a 360 in the roof and one in the front. What I haven't been able to figure out, is how thick they can be, before they start interfering with each other.
My current rads are 45mm. thick and 70mm. with the fans and something like 5mm. extra for gaskets and vibration dampening. Would that create any issues?

from the fractal website it doesn't appear to have an issue. But I do recall a YouTube that said how much clearance for a radiator you could have on top.

Thanks for the recommendation. I will check them out now.
