Tt Riing or Noctua NF-A14?

Which is better for static pressure and air flow? I own both fans.

Thank you.

Try them out and see which one performs better for your use case. I have the NF-A15 from my Noctua cooler, which is basically a NF-A14. That fan outperforms my other top 140/150mm fans at the same speeds (PH-F140MP and TY-143). It is also the loudest by a bit.

How does performance compare at same noise levels?

I prefer TY series and PH-F140MP performance to noise and sound profile. It's not just about DB sound pressure level, but also about the actual sound and how it sounds to our ears. Some sounds are more annoying than others.

The NF-A15 is louder than the TY-143 at the same rpm, but it does cool better. I see as much as a 3C difference between the two on my NH-D15. The NF-A15 does have a louder hum that I find annoying. The TY-143 has to run at about 1700 rpm to cool as well as the NF-A15 at 1500 rpm, but while both are a bit loud at those speeds the TY has a smoother sound profile.
I find the PH-F140MP to be just as loud as the NF-A15 at the same rpm, but pushes less air.

I had NF-A14 FLX fans in my old Luxe and the ticking sound the motor in the NF-A14 made at low and medium speeds drove me crazy
Bought the TG version of the Luxe and keept the stock fans and those dont make any annoying sounds at low and medium speeds

If you dont mind the noise i would try the NF-A14 fans first

Interesting. When I tested both A15 and TY series I found similar dB and cooling to rpm, and yeah the TY sound slightly better too. I also did PH-F140HP II and found them to have good sound and performance as TY series at same speeds. But depending where one lives on our big blue marble Phanteks and Thermalright can be hard to find.

Nice case!


Originally Phanteks cases came with PH-F140SP fans (variable voltage 1200rpm) but that changed several years ago to a no model number fan that uses PH-F140SP housng and motor with a PH-f140MP impeller. They work very well indeed. Honestly the only bad fan from Phanteks is their 200mm one .. and it's really bad!

The hardest to source here in Mexico is Thermalright. Only viable place to import is Nam's, and they don't always have good stock. Last I checked Amazon had several TY fans available (after a loooong time of not having them), but the TY-143s I got at that time ended up with a weird PWM curve.
Phanteks used to be relatively easy to get, especially after Phanteks Mexico got started. But that was then. These days for some reason there is a lack of local stock.

Can you get be quiet! Silent Wings 3 at reasonable prices? I've only used a few of them but really like them.


Maybe try finding Cooljag Everflow fans. Same OEM as TY most of TY-xxx series fans.

http://www.cooljagusa.com/index.php?...assid=82&id=87


Most are variable voltage but one is PWM

Puget Systems in USA sells some of them too.

Amazon Mexico has the 120mm SW3 for about $20-21USD before import fees and shipping. PerformancePCs has them for $23USD before shipping (no import fees if I buy from them). Will try looking for the Cooljag fans. Unfortunately most stuff that is easy to get here locally is Cooler Master and Corsair. I already spend most of my lunch money on the MLs, so I'm not looking to buy more fans anytime soon. The MLs ended up being useless for my purposes, so I may eventually look into the SW3.
