Look at item 1 in my sig, then click on the fan links and compare specs. At 110cfm, that 1900rpm 25mm Slip Stream supposedly puts out more air than a 2600rpm 38mm San Ace 9G1212H101, which puts out 99cfm. Sanyo Denki sells to industrial customers, who can check on the specs. Most consumers cannot. So whose specs do you trust?
Vortez.net uses the Coolink SWiF2 120P PWM fan as one of their standard fans. It is usually the one that cools the best (as an example, see this review
). At $9.99
, it fits your price criterion.
You can compare performance and noise of 120mm fans in item 1 of my sig. You can look at 140mm fan performance in item 2 of my sig. There are lots of superb 140mm fans out there, but aside from the Yate Loons, they are most more than $10
. That said, Yate Loons are pretty good. When I gave my daughter the choice of all of my 140mm fans for the front of her case, she listened to them, felt their output, and decided on a Yate Loon lowspeed fan, the D14SL-124B.
Aside from the SVC page

Good luck. Have fun.
