Avacado Nothing wrong with an external mount at all. If you do it right, it can still look clean and sexy. See below. No idea why it oriented sideways.

As for quietness, Noctua A12X25 has really great performance per decibel (they also sell 120mm to 140mm adapter).
It bumps the silence rpm range from 700 of other fans to 1300, tolerable until 1600, then just fan noise @2000, no annoying vibration/resonance. It's on XSPC RX rad (thick, low fpi) though, so thinner denser fins may amplify the noise.
If you're going for push/pull, I highly recommend HWLabs Nemesis 140 GTX. It's rated to be best push/pull 140mm rad here:

Thats the RAD I have currently. I'll try to record the noise so you get a better idea of what I am talking about.

I only run that voltage for however long it takes to run a benchmark, then I'm down to 1.3v.
True, I am running a 360 and 140 so if I hit 95c something is off haha.

I currently have 2 ML140's however they seem to be super loud like a loud buzzing. Im not sure if this is normal for the fan however thats why I am asking.

Montoya1 95c seems very hot for a CPU.

The Pook Yeah, they're 165 CFM, they're loud at 100%. That's why you undervolt and set a custom fan curve. Mine run at 20% until 85c slowly increase to 35% by 95c and I haven't heard them ramp up outside when I bench at 1.4v+ for HWBOT.

They make 2000RPM industrials that are quieter than the 3000s if you want to get those. The 2000s can undervolt to a slower RPM but they're the same price. I'd just get the 3000s and under volt them, they undervolt just fine to inaudible levels.

Montoya1 Yeah I was looking at the Nocuta industrial. Aren't they loud?
02-22-2019 02:26 PM
The Pook Depends on your radiator. Can't really go wrong with industrial Noctuas and undervolt them to tolerable levels. I got two NF-A14 iPPC 3000s on my H115i and they're way overkill but great fans.

Bitfenix Spectre Pros, EK Vardar, and ML140s are worth a look too.

Montoya1 What 140mm fans would you suggest? I want to do push/pull.
