Don't see why they wouldn't work, but I think they'd be a bit loud for case fans. Putting them that close to the exterior of the system means they'd be a bit more audible, and they're not exactly silent.

the 2 I have on my Silver Arrow are virtually silent. They'd make great case fans IMO

They'd make excellent case fans.

In case you are still on the fence about this fan, here is a respectable review:

From what I have hear they are very good some people think the rival the AP-15 if not better than it.

The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't fit 140mm fan holes, I was hacked off when I found that out. If only there was an adapter for a mod I could do to use this fan.

Anyone used both TY-140 and Noctua NF-P14? How do they compare?

I've been using Noctua NF-P12 in my old Q6600 setup and now as push-pull fans with the Venomous X in my 2600K build. I wanted to change the psuh-pull fans to 140mm ones to increase airflow, or maintain airflow but lower the noise. I like the noise level of the NF-P12, and Noctua states on their website that the NF-P14 is actually slightly quieter. The listed spec of the TY-140 says that the TY-140 gives more airflow but slightly noisier. But x-bitlabs.com comparison of 140mm fans suggests that TY-140 is better in terms of both airflow and noise, so I went ahead and ordered them.

But I have just realized that the TY-140 is 1.4mm thicker than the NF-P12 and NF-P14. The NF-P12 on the pull side of my Venomous-X is already touching the memory heatsink on my P8P67 Deluxe, and I'm afraid that the extra 1.4mm thickness will be pushing the memory too hard. Should I bother to try sanding down the fan a bit, or should I go order the NF-P14 and use the TY-140's as case fans instead?

In post #4, ehume's sig has a bunch of informative links. Click on and read the fourth link,"Secrets of the D14". A lot of data concerning your fan choice.
NVM, I linked it for you.

BTW, the TY-140 supports PWM control.

As for the fitment issue, you'll just have to dry-fit to make that determination.
Maybe you can change the fan's position. :shrug:
