Switching Noctua D-14 fans. Help me pick some out!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm about to put my D-14 into my system, but the fans don't match the setup I'm going for. =P

I'm looking to get black (or white) fans to replace them, but they must be quiet. (not necessarily silent)
They must be on Newegg since I'm placing a large order there. If the fans have LED's, they must be blue.

Just looking for some similar performing 3-pin fans to work on my case's eyecandy.

My budget is $40, including shipping.
Depending on the price, I may get 3 fans.

Thanks for your input,
- Matt

D14 for ~$85 + another $40 for fans, you're better off buying the XSPC RS240 kit for ~$130

otherwise, the fans that come with the D14 are excellent in terms of CFM/dB, i doubt you'll find any 140mm fans in white/black that can match it

I originally bought an H70, but I traded it for the D-14.
I move my computer around too much to really trust liquid cooling. Also I felt as though adding/removing parts would be much faster.

I could just spray paint the fans..... =P

H70 isnt REAL liquid cooling, its an all in one. And get either Gentle Typhoons or if you want to go the 38mm route, San Aces.

thats pretty much the same as worrying about the bottle of mountain dew your carrying even tho its got a cap on it.

but it really depends what your looking for, just the color of the fans or do you want higher AF or lower DB?

I'm looking for low DB and white fans if possible. The CMF really isn't an issue since I have 2 200mm + 1 140mm as exhaust fans along with 3 140mm fans as intakes. =P
I'm using the D-14 on an Athlon, so I would be just fine with low CMF fans.

Go with ap-13s

If you're going with 120mm fans I'd suggest the AP-14 Gentle Typhoon (1450 rpm). Very quiet, and moves a goodly amount of air. A couple of those would be very quiet and cool like a champ.

Alternatively you could try out the Thermalright TY-140. They use 120mm mounting holes, are quiet, and move even more air than the Typhoons. Though they'll be a bit louder.
